We buy junk cars in North Carolina, and you might be surprised by just how much we can offer you. However, we do categorize our junk cars into three groups when evaluating your clunker:
Is your car now just a pile of scrap metal? Well, if that’s the case, it will be recycled or sold to North Carolina junk car buyers and junk yards for raw materials. Because of this, the car’s size and weight will determine its value. You can count on us to offer you something around $50 to $200 for your such a ride before we tow it off to an auto salvage yard.
Think your car would be good to drive after a few repairs? Then congratulations: you have what we call an “in-betweener.” It can be hard for us to give you an exact amount upfront, but you can expect these to fetch much money than complete junkers.
Did you still drive your “junker” to work and back every day? If that’s the case, then you can expect a cash offer of $100 to $10,000 from us.
We’ve made thousands of cash offers for NC junkers all through the state, giving North Carolinians the cash they deserve for their old cars.

"The front bumper is a 1999 Subaru Sedan bumper that I put on and got from a junk yard. There are a few small dents in the body, and the radiator may need replacing. "
"A part of the trim came off on one of the sliding doors, and it is in the vehicle. The starter appears to have died, and I was told it sounds like a valve on a piston has cracked. The check engine light was on, and it kept stalling. There are fairly new components in the vehicle such as the fuel pump, filter, muffler and rack which were replaced no more than three years ago. New front brakes and a new front axle were put on about a year ago. Around the same time, new spark plugs, wires, and a coil pack were put in. One mirror is cracked, and there is rust. "
"The driver door opens from outside, and the motor in the window is out. The back passenger tire is flat. My rent is due, and I'm out of options. This car is all I have left to junk for some cash. "
"The vehicle is missing a door handle on the driver-side door. One tire is flat and has a slow leak. The timing belt snapped, and it needs new shocks and all. The engine and transmission were still in running order before the timing belt snapped. "
"I am trying to get cash for what I paid for the vehicle or at least close to it. Inside of the car, the passenger seat is missing the back of the covering, the rear-view mirror is messed up, and the console has no arm rest covering it."
"The car drives but needs a jump because it has been sitting for a while. The tires hold air but need to be pumped up. The floor on the passenger side soaks with water when it's driven in the rain. The front passenger-side fender is dented, and the mirror is broken."
