How does our car removal service work?

It only takes 3 easy steps to sell your car to The Clunker Junker

  1. Start at the top of this page and give us some details about the car you’re selling. Tell us about the year, make, and model. Describe the condition of the interior, exterior, and drivetrain. Important items like approximate mileage help us to give you the most fair and reasonable quote on your vehicle. We’ll also ask about the ownership and title status, as well as your location.

  2. Accept our instant offer, and we can get the process started right away. At that point, we’ll get your address, so we can schedule our junk car removal to pick up the vehicle. Our carriers have flexible schedules and can work with you to schedule evening and weekend pickups. The process generally takes 1 to 3 business days, but many cars have been picked up within 24 hours. Tell us about yourself, so we know who to pay and how to contact you.

  3. When our Altoona car removal specialist arrives, they’ll inspect the vehicle to ensure that it matches the description in our system. They’ll also verify your ID and help you to fill out the title. Once that’s done, give the hauler your keys, and they will write you a check for the amount quoted to you on the spot.

We buy more cars in Altoona because our integrity is important to us

Some car buyers charge excessive fees for towing and removal, and don’t tell you until they arrive. Suddenly, the price you thought you were getting starts to decrease right before your eyes. Others require you to arrange to deliver your car to their location as well as cover the towing costs.

We include free towing with every vehicle offer. It can’t get any easier than that. And we don’t pull any bait and switch tactics. We won’t change your offer to cover towing. You’ll get a check for the full amount, with absolutely no deductions for towing.

How long does the process take?

We can pick up most vehicles in Altoona within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier takes care of all their own schedules, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific pickup time on the buyer'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 business check or cash depends on the policy 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 better book keeping and the safety of tow drivers. If you are paid by check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

  • Yumica's 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix
    1997 Pontiac Grand Prix

    "I am getting a new car. This car has paint that is coming off. The trunk and the bumper had to be replaced. It needs a new battery, so it cannot be driven now due to the battery being dead. It happened when the weather got cooler. I believe the battery was weak."

  • Mike's 1999 Ford Taurus
    1999 Ford Taurus

    "The passenger side mirror is held on by wire. The transmission was rebuilt/replaced approximately 40,000 miles ago by the previous owner. The engine seized up due to a teenager continuing to drive it after the oil light warning."

  • Robert's 1991 Buick Regal
    1991 Buick Regal

    "The car runs and drives. It has some minor mechanical issues, and it will need brakes, rotors, the left blinker does not work correctly (will not blink), and the A/C does not work. The car is very rusty, and it has rear end damage. This was my daughter's first car. We have purchased something newer, and we're looking to junk this one for cash."

  • Sam's 1999 Toyota Camry
    1999 Toyota Camry

    "The vehicle is in OK condition. The sun roof leaks, the rear taillight sensor interferes with the automatic locks, and the FWD transmission is not operational. The reverse transmission is operational, the body is in good condition. The front struts are bad, the front right ball joint or suspension may be bad, the heater core needs to be replaced, and the radiator is cracked and patched."

  • Dawn's 2002 Volkswagen Jetta
    2002 Volkswagen Jetta

    "The car is in great shape and clean inside and out. It needs a timing belt for it to run. Underneath the hood is even clean. I'm getting another car, but I still have this one registered and insured. So, I need to junk it before the other one comes, because I have nowhere to park all the vehicles after I switch the plates to the new vehicle. I can't park it in the street. I need to junk this one for cash to put the new one on the road. Everything is under the hood, but it does not turn over. The timing belt went. It was driveable until less than a week ago."

  • Peggy's 2000 Dodge Caravan
    2000 Dodge Caravan

    "The vehicle may start, but it won't drive. It's been sitting in our driveway for over a year. The front tire is flat, because it's been sitting for so long. It is a Grand Caravan, it's silver, and it has leather seats. It has bucket seats and one bench in the back. It has a lot of miles on it."
