Can you buy junk cars with no title in Ithaca, NY?

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Ithaca, NY but we cannot guarantee it in all cases. It may depend on a number of different factors, such as the age of the vehicle and the exact location. Ultimately it is up to our local junk car buyers. If we can pay cash for your junk car with no title you will need to have a photo ID matching a valid registration to prove ownership. Also note that offers for cars with no title may be significantly lower!

If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Ithaca, NY DMV as seen below. Most states require a small fee for replacement and turnaround time can be anywhere from instantly to a couple of weeks:

How long does the process take?

We can often pick up most vehicles in Ithaca within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local buyer or carrier manages all their own schedules, so we can never fully guarantee a specific pickup time on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

What form of payment will be made, cash or check?

Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the requirements of the local buyer who makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping. If you are paid by business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

    "The car does have some interior cosmetic defects. The leather seats are worn down. The door panels for the front driver and passenger sides are still intact but are falling off of the hinges. The car needs a tune-up as well. I wanted to sell the car to someone who could finish restoring it because of the high value of the car. However, I failed to find someone in my state who appreciates these classic cars. "

  • Brandon's 2002 Hyundai Elantra
    2002 Hyundai Elantra

    "The car is currently sitting at a gas station/tow yard in town. Since I have to pay the fees to get the car out, can they get it out of the tow yard and take it? The problem is that the front left tire's control arm rusted through and snapped. "

  • Angela's 2007 Hyundai Sonata
    2007 Hyundai Sonata

    "The vehicle needs transmission work and has a possible power steering problem or needs fluid. The component that sprays the windshield wiper fluid does not work. The stock radio is not included with the vehicle. There are some spots where the paint is missing, and there are some dents. The vehicle has been totaled. I purchased it in 2011 with a salvage title. "

  • Nicholas's 2003 Volkswagen Jetta

    "I don't want to invest any more money into the car. It broke down a month ago. A mechanic looked at it and told me he could get it running for $300, but there may be other damages. I don't really need a car right now, so I just didn't bother to get it fixed."

  • Heather's 1990 Ford Taurus
