How do I get cash for my junk car?

   First, tell us about the car you're selling.

Got a junk car you want to sell? Start by filling out our simple and intuitive submission form above. We'll ask you some questions about your car or truck such as its year, make, model, and trim. Next, tell us about the condition of the vehicle like whether it can start and drive, how many miles are on the odometer (high mileage vehicles are fine!), and what kind of ownership documentation you have. If you're trying to sell your junk car with no title in Columbus, OH we may be able to help you with that!

Finally, we'll ask if the vehicle has any exterior damage such as missing or loose bumpers and body panels, large dents or hail damage, and broken or missing lights, glass, and mirrors. Answer the questions accurately and honestly and our offers will never change at the time of pickup like many bait-and-switch schemes online. Our integrity is very important to us!

Junk Car Removal FAQ

When can you pick up my car? I need it gone today.

The Clunker Junker makes every effort to be or work with the fastest and best junk car buyers in Columbus. Once we collect all the required information (and photos in some cases), we'll forward it to our carrier or buyer immediately and they will reach out to you to schedule an exact day and time for pickup. Our carriers usually respond within a few business hours but can sometimes take longer. Because The Clunker Junker does not directly handle scheduling, we cannot fully guarantee any specific time or date. With that said, however, most of our junk car removals happen within two business days and many even happen on the same day as submission.

Can I sell my car without the title in Columbus?

It depends on a few different things like the age of your vehicle and what other documentation you may have available. We can buy some cars without titles in Ohio, but you will usually need a photo ID that matches a valid registration and/or insurance card to prove ownership. We cannot purchase abandoned vehicles or vehicles that have active liens under any circumstances. We will also not pay for impound fees if they are required to release a junk vehicle.

Do you also sell vehicles? Can I buy a car from you?

We do not sell vehicles to the general public. We only sell vehicles to wholesalers, dealers, dismantlers, and similar. If you are a licensed dealer and are interested in purchasing junk vehicles on a regular basis, we'd love to talk to you and have you become a partner.

Why should I sell my car to you? I can get more on the Columbus Craigslist classifieds.

You're absolutely right! We simply cannot compete on price against private buyers, and we do not try to. However, The Clunker Junker can save you from a lot of the hassle of dealing with private buyers who may not be serious, don't show up when they say they will, or may not be safe or trustworthy. We can usually have your car or truck picked up within 48 hours and you'll be paid right on the spot with no gimmicks. Of course, towing is always free. It's fast, simple, and safe.

What happens to my junk vehicle once I sell it to you?

It depends! For cars that are very old, have severe body damage, or are beyond mechanical repair, they may be dismantled and recycled by a local auto recycler. Cars or trucks that have not yet reached end of life may be re-marketed to wholesale car buyers, exporters, or interested private parties at auction.

What should I do if I signed my Ohio title incorrectly?

Titles are complicated and sensitive legal documents, so don't sweat it if you signed yours wrong, it can always be fixed! You should absolutely not try to erase, whiteout, scribble over, or otherwise try and correct the title as this will immediately invalidate it and require you to obtain a duplicate. The most common mistakes are signing in the wrong place or with the wrong name. These mistakes can be corrected by signing and notarizing an affidavit of correction that states the problem and states that there was "no fraud intended". Even if you're not a customer, we'll be happy to provide you with a generic affidavit.

How to sign your Ohio title when selling your vehicle

Ohio titles may need to be notarized

The registered owner of the vehicle should do the following in front of a legal notary:

  1. First, Print (don't sign) your name on the back of the title where it reads "Transferor's/Seller's printed name".

  2. Next sign the back of the title where indicated by "Transferor's/Seller's signature"

  3. Have the title notarized if required.

If there is more than one owner of the vehicle, both must sign the title.
