Are you wondering how to sell your junk car quickly and easily? At The Clunker Junker, we pay cash for cars in Shelby, NC and we make the process simple, fast, and awesome!
Do you have a junk car just sitting there, in your driveway or in your garage, doing nothing more than taking up space?
You might say that it’s valuable, and you have some ideas on how to get the most value out of it. If the car has been broken or damaged, perhaps you’re trying to save money to fix it up and put it back on the road. But you never seem to have the money or the time to find the parts and do the work.
Another alternative is to sell your junk car for parts. The challenge you’ll face here is finding the right buyers. Selling a car for parts and the scrap value of the metal is no easy task. You have to take the car apart, drain and safely dispose of fluids, separate and take inventory of the parts, and assess the quality of the parts. Then you still have to spend hours on the phone pitching your scrap parts to junk yard and auto recyclers or posting multiple classified ads, only to spend weeks getting the runaround and no firm estimate on the value of your parts and no interested buyers.
You could also end up spending money towing your car from one auto salvage yard in Shelby to another only to find that you can’t get a fair price for both the metal and the parts.
You could try selling your junk car on Craigslist or eBay, which could turn you into a mini car dealership. You’ll find yourself waiting days or weeks for someone to respond to your ad. Then they’ll want to see it and test drive it, if you advertise that it is running. Then there’s price negotiations. A potential buyer might ask you to fix the car or reduce your price. Even if you do, they’ll want to think about it and get back to you.
Suddenly, you’ll realize that weeks and months have gone by and it’s still sitting there. In fact, you may have had a goal to sell that old car in a few days, and a year later it’s still sitting there.

"I got into a car accident and the air bags are out. The seats popped out and the rear door on driver side needs to be replaced. The tire is dented in and rubbing against the axle. "
"I'm getting rid of the vehicle because I bought a newer truck and no longer have any use for it. The title is lost and I cannot obtain one. The truck does start and run and does drive but the battery is currently dead and it has one flat tire."
"Starter key ignition was replaced and fixed. It's brand new, but car still stalls on highway every so often. However all you have to do is put it in neutral and restart the ignition and keep on driving. You don't even have to stop or pull over. The cruising speed of the car is not affected."
"The battery is dead, but even if it weren't the engine misfires. The front right headlight and bumper are damaged. It's sitting on the street and doesn't get driven so I need to get rid of it before they impound it."
"It has 213,000 miles. Recent brake replacement. Relatively recent tire replacement although they might need to be rotated. Recent catalytic converter replacement! I disconnected the power windows because motor was not strong on passenger side and people kept putting it down. Switch on driver's side power window is fiddly. There's a brand new steering column and new power steering pump! Still does 110 mph very easily. I know that's irresponsible and must be performed only by a professional driver on a closed course."
"It had a rebuild starter I put in beginning of September and a new battery put in in July. The front left fender is missing and there's front damage. The plastic around front the lights is broken but they still illuminate."
