For how much can I sell my car in Salem, Oregon?

We know that it can be a headache to hunt down the best offer for your old, used, or junk car, but rest assured that we’re happy to do the work for you. We buy all kinds of cars, SUVs, and trucks in Salem and our offers range from $200-$300 on average. Furthermore, we contact only the most reputable car buyers in Willamette Valley to give you the highest offers and the best service. For cars that aren’t quite , we can offer a lot more because rather than crush and recycle them, they can be re-sold at auction. That’s something you won’t be able to get from a local Salem, OR junkyard or salvage yard.

Other companies take advantage of people selling their cars because most sellers don’t have an accurate idea of what their car is really worth. Kelly Blue Book doesn’t really apply to cars! We calculate the exact worth of your car based off of local scrap prices and vehicle conditions, so every offer we make in Salem is unique and accurate. Not sure if your truck, car, or SUV would really be considered a clunker? Our network of top car buyers in Salem make great offers, but sometimes we are able to auction newer vehicles and offer you up to ten times as much for it!

Here at The Clunker Junker, we’re straightforward and transparent. We never have any hidden fees and always offer complimentary towing.

You may be wondering how quickly you can get your junk car removed and that cash offer in your pocket. Our prompt and personable buyers do their best to work fast and get your car picked up and paid for within 1 to 3 business days on average, however our car buyers in Salem manage their own scheduling, and we’re unable to promise a specific timeframe.

Do you buy junk cars in Salem, OR without a title?

Yes! In many cases (though not all) we can buy junk cars in Salem, OR with no title. In all cases you will need to be able to prove you own the vehicle. That is usually done by showing a photo ID matching a valid registration for the vehicle. In some cases additional paperwork is also needed. Contact us if you have any questions about what is needed to sell your car with no title in Oregon. Note that we can never buy abandoned vehicles under any circumstance.

If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Salem, OR 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:

How long does the pickup take?

We can often pick up the majority of vehicles in Salem within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer takes care of all their own pick up schedules, so we can never 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 check depends on the policy of the buyer near you who places a bid on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for the safety of tow drivers and better book keeping. If you are paid via business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!

    2002 Ford Explorer

    "The starter is out of the vehicle, but it works fine. I think the vehicle may just be out of gas. I have purchased two new trucks in the past year, and I do not drive it anymore. I'm just looking to junk it for a fair cash offer. "

  • Trikele's 1994 Ford Mustang
    1994 Ford Mustang

    "This was a project car, but now it's just a complaint every other day. I got a new car, and I hoped I could build it to a more aggressive style. Engine wise, it has a new water pump and gaskets. "

    1997 Lincoln Town Car

    "There's a dent on the trunk lid, a small crack on the windshield. It has matching tires. They're whitewalls with plenty of rubber left. It has alloy wheels, and the center caps are excellent. The seats are leather, and they're in very good condition. All of the lights are intact."

  • Andrew's 1995 Ford Thunderbird
    1995 Ford Thunderbird

    "I bought the car three years ago for a great price, but I've since rebuilt the front end. I have put more cash into it than I wanted to. Now, the heater core is out, and I just don't want to put any more cash into it. Other than that, it runs. It's just getting old."

  • Ben's 2012 Honda Accord
    2012 Honda Accord

    "The car is in excellent condition. It has zero issues. I work from home and hardly drive it, so I'm trying to junk it. I bought it certified pre-owned in 2014, and I've only put about 4,000 miles on it. I do not have the title."

  • Kayla's 1999 Chrysler
    1999 Chrysler

    "I'm not sure what is wrong with the car. I just bought another car, and I don't want to work on this car. I need it gone because I have no tag, so it's just sitting. I can't keep it in my neighborhood without a tag. "
