We Buy Junk Cars in Pittsburgh So You Can Rest Easy

Selling a car in Pittsburgh, PA the traditional way is a part-time job in and of itself. Pittsburgh is a heavily populated area, so you’ll get plenty of responses from sites like Craigslist and eBay Motors. Most of these replies will lead to nothing, though.

Once the deal is done, you’ll have enough cash to go watch Roethlisberger throw for four TDs at Heinz Stadium! Plus, The Clunker Junker has learned how to speak Pittsburghese, just look: “Hey yinz, you don’t even have to warsh your car before you sell it to us! Go Stillers!”. Not bad, right?

How much is my car worth in Pittsburgh?

If you want to sell your car in Pittsburgh, you’d probably like to get as much for it as possible. Another advantage of turning to The Clunker Junker is that you’re more likely to get the most value for your car. The amount that you are offered will vary based on many factors, but here’s a quick rundown, depending on condition:

  • Complete Wreck Vehicles that are beyond repair are pieced out for the price of scrap metal. The amount that you receive will be based on the size and weight of the car’s raw materials, which typically amounts to $50 to $225.

  • Junk with Usable Parts. If your car is mostly but still contains valuable parts, it will be stripped out for those parts before going to the local Pittsburgh junkyard. You can expect to receive a bit more than you would for a complete wreck.

  • Not Junk. We don’t just pay cash for junk cars in Pittsburgh; we will make you an offer on your operable vehicle too. It will be based on the going rate at auction for similar vehicles and can range from $200 to more than $10,000.

Can you pick up my vehicle on the same day?

We can pick up most vehicles in Pittsburgh within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local buyer or carrier manages all their own scheduling, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup time on the buyer's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

What form of payment will be made, cash or check?

Whether you are paid by check or cash depends on the policy of the local buyer who makes a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping. If you are paid via check, don't forget 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!

  • Jill's 1980 Chevrolet Camaro
    1980 Chevrolet Camaro

    "It's not driveable because it won't start, but I'm not sure why. Engine and transmission never gave me issues before and the mechanic said it might be the starter or alternator. "

  • Tina's 1998 Chevrolet Suburban
    1998 Chevrolet Suburban

    "Some of the seats are removed and the ones that are intact are in tough shape. It used to be an 8-passenger but now seats only 5. It needs to be jumped because it has been sitting since January. The motor is going out, but I can't really invest in fixing that now. "

  • Jody's 2001 Volkswagen New Beetle
    2001 Volkswagen New Beetle

    "The piece of junk ran, but I stopped driving it because I bought a newer car. Rain seeped in through the seal somehow and there's mold growing inside the car. It smells musty and gross and I need it off my lawn ASAP!"

  • Antoinnette's 2000 Nissan Maxima
    2000 Nissan Maxima

    "I just bought a new car and I need to get rid of my old car. I just replaced the headlights, tail lights, radiator, motor mounts, and side view mirrors. The radio has electrical problems and the starter just went out. I just can't keep up with fixing it all the time so I want cash for my car so I can move on. "

  • Miyisha's 2000 Hyundai Sonata
    2000 Hyundai Sonata

    "The car needs an upper arm and has a minor dent where the back light, is but other than that it's fine. I just had an oil change before it broke down on me."

  • William's 1999 Ford F150
    1999 Ford F150

    "The tires, alternator and battery were all purchased within the last year. I never changed the oil and the engine doesn't run but the body is in fairly good condition with rust on just one side, but the rest is in decent shape. All glass and mirrors are in good shape except for one blinker light. There is no front bumper, but still plenty of parts in great condition on this truck."
