Why should you sell your car in Chapel Hill, NC to The Clunker Junker?

We know there are some folks out there who will want to sell their car in Chapel Hill, NC online on websites like OfferUp or eBay. First off, why do you want to do that to yourself? What most people don’t consider is that selling your car takes up more time than you think.

Then you’ll have to deal with the folks who will want to drop by your house and inspect the vehicle. Yeah, like you really want a bunch of Craigslist strangers to know where you live. When you finally find someone who gives you a serious offer, you have to hope they pay you in cash instead of the “oh yeah, my check is good, honest” routine. We buy cars in Chapel Hill, NC so you don’t have to deal with all of these headaches.

How long does the process take?

We can pick up most vehicles in Chapel Hill within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer takes care of all their own scheduling, so we can never fully guarantee a specific pickup time on the carrier'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 an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have moved to check for the safety of tow drivers and better book keeping. If you are paid by business check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!

  • Gina's 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante
    2003 Mitsubishi Diamante

    "I have a title certificate, but not the actual title. It has a new exhaust pipe, egr valve, and radio. It looks pretty good for being a 2003 Mitsubishi. It's gonna rot if I don't sell it. There's only rust in little spots of the car. Minor dents on the sides and back of the car. A crack in the windshield but on the passenger side."

  • Sonya's 2005 Honda Accord
    2005 Honda Accord

    "This vehicle was in an accident last year. The damage is on the driver's rear door. Also, the airbag deployed in that area as well. The vehicle is drivable, but two of the tires are flat as its been sitting for about eight months."

  • Liz's 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
    2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

    "It is "drivable" in the sense that it starts up and moves, but there is a steering issue that makes it unsafe to drive. This is not worth fixing, I am told by my mechanic, because the frame is rotting."

  • Tanisha's 2002 Saturn Vue
    2002 Saturn Vue

    "The reason my car won't start is because it needs a timing belt and water pump that's too expensive to get it fixed. I need to just buy a new car. The front end is off because a car rammed me from behind and I hit the car in front of me. Everything else is fine. The air conditioning didn't work and I never cared to fix it. I just spent $900 dollars to get things updated and fixed before the winter and now I still have to junk it."

  • Tammy's 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva
    1996 Oldsmobile Achieva

    "The car has only not been drivable for 24 hrs, a motor mount broke so it's not connected to the transmission properly & a muffler mount just broke 20 mins ago."

  • Lupe's 1985 Chevrolet g20
    1985 Chevrolet g20

    "The vehicle is a camping van conversion with a pull out bed, fridge, sink and propane oven. Our children are in college, so we do not camp as a family any longer and no longer use the vehicle. "
