Introduce Us to Your Clunker
When you’re ready to sell your car, you can start by using our online tool. Enter your make, model, year, and trim into the system to start the process. We’ll then ask for information about the condition of the car. It doesn’t have to start for us to make an offer on it, but it’s something we need to know to provide you with an accurate quote. We’ll also ask for the mileage. If you don’t have the title on hand, let us know right away. We can sometimes still buy the car, but it’ll affect the quote.
We'll give you an instant quote
Occasionally, we’ll ask for more information about the car. For newer vehicles, it’s not uncommon for us to want pictures to verify condition or ownership. However, once we have all the information we need, you’ll have a quote in your hands in seconds. By working with auto salvage yards across Pennsylvania, we’re able to provide you with the best quote available for your junk car. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to buy every car submitted to us. However, you’ll know quickly whether or not it’s worth something, and you’ll rest assured you’ve gotten the top dollar for your junk car.
We'll kick off the junk car removal
No matter the condition of the car, once you’ve accepted the quote, we’ll arrange for a date and time to pick it up. We’ll gather the rest of the important information from you – address, VIN, vehicle color – and then send a PA junk car buyer to pick it up. We can pick up most vehicles within 48 business hours of providing a quote. One of our drivers will come out to you, do a cursory inspection of the vehicle, and then provide you with your cash or check.
How much can you sell a junk car for in Pennsylvania?
Every car we look at is unique, but there are common factors we take into account when offering quotes. These are the main things we look at when going to buy a car.
Far Beyond Repair
When you think “junk car,” this is it. These are the real eyesores in the back of the driveway somewhere that look like they saw better days many years ago. Clunkers like this are often just recycled for basic raw materials and you can expect to see anywhere between $50 to $200 for a vehicle like this.
We’re still in junk car territory here, but cars in this category often have valuable parts that can be extracted and used elsewhere. Once the parts are out, the car is crushed up into scrap metal. These in-betweeners typically yield a little more cash than pure junk.
It’s Not Junk!
Our name doesn’t mean we don’t buy all kinds of cars in Pennsylvania. In fact, in many cases, we can offer more than local junkyards can. Depending on the condition and the type of car you’re selling, you’ll see anywhere from $200 to $10,000 for cars in this category.

How to sign your Pennsylvania car title
We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Pennsylvania title when you are selling your vehicle. If there are multiple owners listed on the title, they must all sign the title unless the names are separated with "OR".
- Find the "Assignment of title" section on the back of your PA title, that's where you'll want to sign, print, and have the notary stamp. Ignore any section that says "Reassignment by registered dealer", you won't be needing that.
- First sign the back of the title where indicated by "Signature of Seller". This may need to be done in front of a legal notary.
Always sign in pen on the seller line and never sign in the dealer section.
- Print (don't sign) your name on the back of the title where it reads "Seller and/or Co-Seller Must Handprint Name Here".
Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.
- Make sure your notary signs and stamps the title in the notary section.
How to get a duplicate Pennsylvania title
The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Pennsylvania title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Pennsylvania you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:
- Fill out the Pennsylvania Application for Duplicate Certificate of Title by Owner.
- Bring your duplicate title application to your local DMV office or mail your application to the PA division of motor vehicles at:
PA Department of Transportation Bureau of Motor Vehicles 1101 South Front Street Harrisburg, PA 17104
- Please note that there may be a waiting period before a duplicate title can be issued and the cost is $22.50. (Paid to the PA division of motor vehicles).

Frequently asked questions in PA
Do you buy cars without title in Pennsylvania?
Yup! We buy many cars without title. That doesn’t mean we can buy every car submitted to us, but many of our PA buyers are willing to make offers with no title. They will ask you to prove ownership, however. You’ll need a photo identification that matches your insurance card and or registration. Also, don’t be surprised if your offer is a bit lower without title.

Yes, unless you are transferring the plates to a new vehicle. You can return the plates to your local DOT office.

"The car runs well. The engine is very quiet, and everything works fine. Everything on the car is up to date. I just do not need a big vehicle. The engine, transmission and everything start right up. I have a smaller car now."
"The vehicle has no A/C, the carpet is stained, the clear coat is peeling off on the roof, and there are some cigarette burns from the previous owner. The battery is one year old, it has great tires, and it will start and run. However, sometimes after turning it off, it will take forever to start again. I don't need it."
"The vehicle runs well, but it needs work. It would need to be towed, as the brake line no longer works. My local mechanic says there's also an issue with the fuel line (rust - the lines need to be replaced), and the check engine light won't turn off. The horn also doesn't work. I have replaced the entire muffler and the radiator within the last year. The interior is in great condition with a working CD player. The registration tags are current. The odometer reads 207,567 miles. "
"I recently had to replace the radiator and compressor. Once that was completed, they told me that I would also need a motor. In the last year, I have replaced/fixed a number of items, and I just can't afford to pay any more cash for repairs. I am just trying to get it off of my insurance and out of my parking space. "
"I'm junking the vehicle because it has a bad motor. I started to pull the motor for a swap and lost motivation. Now, I don't feel like doing it and don't have time anymore."
"The vehicle is missing multiple interior pieces, but it has the seats and most of the major stuff. There's no engine or transmission and no wheels on the vehicle. All of the body panels are there except for one fender, the hood and the front bumper."
