We buy junk cars in Schenectady, NY, so stop listing it for sale online

You may be asking yourself, “Isn’t selling through a classified site online cheaper, easier, and faster than selling through junkyards these days?” The answer, of course, is a resounding NO. We are a trusted Schenectady junk car removal company that has a heavy emphasis on fast, reliable, and easy service - every time!

Getting cash for junk cars in Schenectady, NY isn’t always easy, and posting an advertisement on Ebay or Craigslist definitely has its difficulties. These types of sites have no enforcement of rules, no guarantee of payment, and often are buyer- rather than seller-oriented. They are also anonymous, often communicating only through text or email, which can lead to uncomfortable or unsafe situations. It can take weeks or months to get even a low offer on a vehicle on Craigslist; especially for a damaged, inoperative car or vehicle. However, we guarantee to give honest cash for cars without any of the scams, waiting, or self marketing required for online sites.

Selling your car to a Schenectady salvage yard isn’t any better

Most junk and salvage yards are not maintained and are without a proper business structure, leading to environmental and toxic hazards linked to real health risks. Countless junkyards across the nation are illegal, unregistered, and thus unregulated. Furthermore, many will try to talk down your price or find a way to cheat you out of what you deserve, accompanied with general poor customer service. We are a highly regulated junk car buyer that adheres to all guidelines, with an unerring and honest pricing system. Not only that, but we have locations in Schenectady and all over New York for your ease and convenience, happy sellers accepting hundreds of offers every single day. We buy junk cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans. Not only that, we pride ourselves on being the biggest, best, and most trustworthy in the industry.

If you have a junked-up car in your life that is damaging your lawn or home aesthetic and you need some quick, easy cash for that anniversary coming up, our services are for you! Tired of pulling your hair out in frustration over the technicalities of classified sites or the outdated tactics of run-down, overused junkyards? Our hassle-free, easy-to-use website keeps your hair where it belongs - on your head! Simply enter your information, make an account, and receive an offer from the comfort and privacy of your home, no strings attached. With us, you can rest assured that your beat-up old vehicle has been hauled away safely, in exchange for a padded wallet. It really is a win/win! Accept your quote today!

Will you pick up my car on the same day?

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Schenectady within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier manages all their own pick up schedules, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup time on the buyer's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the requirements of the buyer near you who makes a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have moved to check for the safety of tow drivers and better record keeping. If you are paid via check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!
