Junk cars for cash in Philadelphia with free pickup.

  1. Sell us your used, wrecked, broken, or rusted junk car and get cash!
  2. You'll be paid right on the spot by one of our awesome Philadelphia junk car buyers.
  3. We pay cash for junk cars, trucks, SUVs, and more!

In West Philadelphia, born and raised, paying cash for junk cars is how we spend most of our days! You whistled for a tow truck and when it came near, the license plate said “JUNK” and had dice in the mirror! He pulled up to your house around seven or eight to tow the car away while you yelled to your junk car “Yo homes, smell you later!”.

That’s our fun way of saying we pay cash for cars in Philadelphia! Not only do we buy cars, but we also pick them up and tow them away for free. Sounds like a pretty good deal, right? Well then tell your friends and tell your family. Shout it from the roof of the Comcast Center building. Ring the Liberty Bell if you have to! The Clunker Junker is here, and we buy junk cars in Philadelphia, PA.

Sell your car in the birth place of America

Philly is the birth place of America. On July 4th, 1776 the declaration of independence was signed at Independence Hall, and the rest, as they say, is history. At The Clunker Junker we want to be part of your history. We’ll help you sign your title and claim independence from your junk car. Perhaps this won’t lead to the rise of the greatest nation the world has ever seen, but at least you’ll be rid of your junk car and have a little extra cash in your pocket to pick up some cheese steak sandwiches at Cleavers near Rittenhouse Square.

Get cash for your junk car in Philadelphia, PA

Our customers in Philly love us because we not only help them sell junk cars, but we do it with professionalism and integrity. We know there are other junk car buyers in Philly, but none of them can provide the same amount of cash for cars as we can, and they definitely won’t do it with the same level of customer satisfaction. Maybe you’re thinking of trying to sell your junk car to a Junkyard in Philadelphia. Well, here’s something you should know: A lot of salvage yards are run by less than savory characters. Even though they say it’s always sunny in Philadelphia, many junk car buyers here are pretty shady. They will sometimes try and make you one offer on the phone, then change the offer at the time of pickup! But The Clunker Junker is proud to maintain a positive reputation in the industry. While many of our competitors try and hide from feedback, we encourage you to find our online reviews where you can find tons of happy customers.

Another option you might be considering as a way to sell your junk car in Philadelphia, PA is trying to take things into your own hands and find a junk car buyer on Craigslist. You’re free to try this, and you may even get a little more money, but you’ll be dealing with a lot of trouble to get it. Buyers on Internet classifieds sites are notoriously unreliable. You’ll be inundated with calls, emails, and texts from people who seem interested, but when the time comes to put their money where their mouth is they can’t even bother to show up. Selling a nice, used car this way is hard enough. Trying to find someone who will pay you cash for junk cars and will pick it up for free may take weeks or months!

We buy junk cars in Philadelphia and make the process easy

By now you’re probably sick of Philadelphia cliché’s and want us to get to the good stuff. “How do I sell my junk car for cash in Philadelphia?” we can hear you asking. Well, you’ll be surprised to learn just how easy we make it. It comes down to three easy steps:

  1. What junk car do you have?
    The first thing we'll need to know is what kind of junk car you want to sell for cash. Maybe you're trying to stage another British invasion with a Mini Cooper, or a Dodge Ram pickup truck (the best selling truck in Philly). Whatever it is, tell us what condition it's in and whether you have the title. If you are looking for cash for your junk car with no title in Philadelphia, we may be able to help with that (no guarantees).
  2. Accept the cash offer
    When all the details are in, and it only takes a minute, our system will give you an instant offer. That's right, in many cases you'll get an offer in seconds if one is available. You don't have to wait for someone to "look it up" or "get back to you" at a later time. If you like what you see, accept the offer to kick off our Philadelphia, PA junk car removal process.
  3. Get paid on the spot
    When you accept our offer and let us know who to pay, where it pick it up, and who to call to arrange for scheduling, one of our awesome Philadelphia junk car buyers will arrive to pick up your junk car. They'll hand over either cash for check at the time of pickup and haul the vehicle away free of charge.

How much is my Philly junk car actually worth?

We’ve been buying junk cars in Philadelphia for a long time; over 10 years! In that time we’ve come to learn what our customers really want. What they want are two things: The highest offer possible, and the quickest pickup. Our local Philly junk car buyers manage their own pickup schedules so we can’t give an exact time frame for pickup, but in general most vehicles are picked up within 1 to 3 business days. Same day pickups are often possible, but we never guarantee this.

That leaves one question left unanswered: “How much is my junk car worth in Philadelphia?”. This one is pretty tough to give an exact answer, but we’ll explain how we arrive at our instant offer that you see on our website:

  • What kind of car is it and is it really junk?
    This is probably the most important factor. You shouldn't be surprised to hear that a 2010 Toyota Rav4 is worth more than a 1993 Dodge Intrepid. Because we buy such a wide range of cars, our range of offers is pretty large. For a real junk car like the Intrepid you might expect scrap yard pricing based on the size and weight. We're talking between $50 and $200 depending on what parts are still good and desirable. But don't let our name fool you because we also buy used cars just as quickly and we can pay a lot more for them. When we buy newer used cars our offers are based on recent sales of similar vehicles at auction, but offers can be up to or exceed $12,000.
  • How's the condition of the vehicle?
    The next big thing we consider when putting a value on your junk car is what condition it's in. Does it start and drive? That will make it worth more than if it doesn't. Was it wrecked in an auto accident on Interstate 476? We'd have to pay less if there was significant damage to the vehicle. Whatever condition it's in, don't be shy. We buy junk cars in many conditions in Philadelphia.
  • Do you have your title?
    If you're selling a junk car with no title in Philly, sometimes we can work with you on that, but you should expect the offer to be much lower, especially if it's a newer vehicle. Not having a title limits our options after the sale so the offer is usually a lot less. With junk cars it might not make as much of a difference because the vehicle will be crushed and recycled at a local Philadelphia junk yard anyway.

When you sell your junk car in Philly, towing is always free

One thing you won’t have to worry about when selling your junk car in Philadelphia to The Clunker Junker is how to get the vehicle to us if it doesn’t start or isn’t driveable. Our Philadelphia junk car removal specialists always offer free towing with every offer. Why is that important? Consider that to tow a vehicle 20 miles it could cost $150 or more. If your car is only worth $150 in parts and materials, you end up coming out ahead.

Once we pay you cash for your junk car in Philadelphia, you can do whatever you’d like with your extra money. We suggest heading to the Reading Terminal Market for some grub or go double or nothing at the SugarHouse Casino. Whatever you do, we just hope you enjoy it. You’ve made it this far, so what are you waiting for? Get cash for cars or sell your junk car for cash to The Clunker Junker today!

Do you buy junk cars in Philadelphia, PA without a title?

Yes! In many cases (though not all) we can buy junk cars in Philadelphia, PA 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 Pennsylvania. 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 Philadelphia, PA 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:

  • Sojuku's 2001 Mazda 626
    2001 Mazda 626

    "I had to guess about the mileage, because the car is currently at an auto shop, and I couldn't remember. I also don't know if the car actually starts, so I just said that it doesn't. It started last night, but I don't know if it will start today."

  • Clayton's 1974 Toyota Corolla

    "This is a shell of a 1974/1975 Corolla. I removed the engine and transmission already and do not need the rest of it. The passenger side window is out, and the interior is sun-baked. There is a dent in the driver's side fender. Otherwise, the body is dent-free. There is rust in the passenger side floor panel as far as I can tell. The rest of the glass is unbroken and somewhat rare."

  • Crystal's 2002 Ford Windstar
    2002 Ford Windstar
