The Clunker Junker and most of our partners are still operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, customer dropoffs have been suspended until further notice. Our staff is also working remotely, please excuse any background noise in phone calls! We are doing our best to keep things running as smoothly as possible. Thank you for your business, and stay safe!
Sometimes cars act like those in cartoons by sputtering, coughing out fumes, and doing a death scene worthy of Bogart. The only thing left to do is call for a rental and have the car towed home. Maybe It goes into the back yard until you can find the time to sell your junk car.
For those who live in HOAs, condos, or apartment complexes, the resident manager breathes fire, his yelling mouth taking up the whole screen, “that piece of junk has to GO!” The car’s owner is cowering behind, hopefully, a fire-proof wall, meekly nodding, while inside thinking, “I need to find someone who pays cash for cars in Valley Stream, NY, and fast!”.
Fear not! TheClunker Junker’s going to swoop in like Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest to give you cash for your junk car in Valley Stream, NY. You need an eyesore removed. You need money to put toward a new car. We get it. We can’t wait to see the smiling happy face as you hold out your hand for the cash and waive goodbye to that old clunker.
How does it work? You’ll fill out a few facts on our website. It will only take minutes. No waiting for prayer-filled days for someone on Craigslist or the local penny saver magazine to see an ad and respond. No waiting for days while your fingernails get chewed to nubs waiting for the buyer to finally show up.
When you fill out the details of your junk car on our website, we’ll pop out an instant offer after just a few seconds. The our valuation software is making up its mind how much cash we can pay for your junk car based on the information you provided us. When you accept the offer, we will show up, usually within 48 hours, for junk car removal. The resident manager will stop breathing fire, the butterflies and birds will fly about happily tweeting, and you’ll have money to put toward a new car. Everyone lives happily ever after.
First, we need to know about your car. Is the body in reasonable condition, or do the tires and body point toward each other? Does the engine start? Can the engine move the car? Being honest will avoid any contention at the time of pickup. We’ll need to know the year, make, and model of your car (such as “the car is a 2015 Nissan Altima.”) Next, you’ll tell us your zip code so we can make sure the offer comes from the closest Valley Stream, NY junk car buyer near you.
We make you an instant offer. You accept. Now we need to know about you. Your name, address, and phone, of course, are required. We need information about the car’s title. Sometimes we ask for pictures of the car and documentation. After all this is done, we’ll notify the carrier we use for a pick-up. We’re at the mercy of his schedule, so while they work quickly we can never guarantee a specific time or day for pickup.
When our Valley Stream, NY junk car removal specialist arrives, they’ll check over the car to see if the application matches the car. You’ll hand over your keys and the car, hold out your hand for a check, and the carrier will exit stage left.
The Clunker Junker is here to help you. We buy junk cars in Valley Stream, NY in most conditions (we’ve even bought wrecked and mangled autos.). We know you’re pressed for time as well as money. When we give you cash for cars, we’re taking off your shoulders the worry and the anxiety from time spent avoiding fire-breathing wives or property managers.
Let’s admit it: we’re Americans. We want what we want and we want it yesterday. The word instant means something to us. It means more when we have a no-joke property manager or homeowner’s association rep frowning in distaste as s/he gives us a pink slip. Get rid of it or I will.
If you put an ad in Craigslist or in the local penny saver magazine, you have to wait for someone to answer. Then you bicker over price. Next, you wait to see if they even show up when they said they will. Only then can you in good conscience give the buyer your keys and the title to the car. Not to mention, there are some pretty sketchy characters on Craigslist and you never know if they may want to scam you or even cause you harm. The Clunker Junker fully background checks all of our Valley Stream junk car buyers so you can rest assured our service is compeltely safe.
Selling your junk car on the private market might take weeks or months. It might never happen at all. If it doesn’t happen, the city tows your car, leaving you with no car and no money. You might even get a bill for the towing and be responsible for impound fees. Yikes!
When The Clunker Junker buys junk cars in Valley Stream, NY towing is free. We realize if your car isn’t running, you possibly aren’t working. No paycheck. No money for a tow truck. We get it. We have a carrier and don’t need to trouble you to pay for towing. We just give you cash for your junk car and then get out of your hair. And smile as we watch your happy dance in the rear view mirror.
If you prefer to get a quote over the phone, you can reach us at (888) 383-4181 during our normal business hours.
The current average value for vehicles in Valley Stream, New York is around $305 with free towing. If you have a big pickup like a Dodge Ram or SUV such as a Ford Excursion, the average value is a little more at $381, but could be $259 for small and mid-size sedans like a Chevy Malibu.

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Valley Stream, 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 regsitration 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 Valley Stream, 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:
We can often pick up most vehicles in Valley Stream within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier manages all their own pick up schedules, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the policy of the buyer near you who places an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for better book keeping and the safety of tow drivers. When you are paid by check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!
"I was storing it for a friend and he is gone, I guese. I have had the car in my car port for over a year it has two tires on it. The body is in decent shape and the interior is also good. The motor runs. That's all I know about it."
"The front disc brakes locked up last week. Engine is a v6 and is strong. I drive it in town only. I suspect the transmission has problems. It drives best in second gear and under 50 mph. No body damage, but starting to rust on the roof. I bought this Skylark brand new in 1993. One owner cars are more valuable."
"The car overheats and the driver door does not open. The inside panel to that door is in the car, but was taken off to try and figure out why the door wouldnt open. There isnt any visible damage to the vehicle, but there is a dent to the driver's door. We think someone hit it and somehow jammed the door but the dent is small."
"The two front tires are missing and not able to be easily slotted back on as I removed the transmission with the intention of removing the engine. All parts and pieces removed are accessible and will be sold with the car. It's a real VR4."
"The van ran really good until I let it sit for 8 or so months. Then the battery was dead. I replaced the battery, but then the fuel pump stopped working so replaced the fuel pump. Now it turns over but never starts and I give up. The paint is oxidized on the top of it, passenger back door has a big dent, and there are a smaller dents on the back door and the floor panel over the fuel pump is cut out from replacing that. It should be fixable, but if it's the coils packs then I don't want to spend $400 on it to fix it and I don't have any way of finding out exactly what is left wrong. "
"I replaced windshield once and right side back seat window also. I recently replaced the radiator along with a radiator support and air conditioner. That's the most I'm going say about it."
