How do I get cash for my car in TN?

   First, tell us what you've got.

Start by filling out our simple and intuitive vehicle submission form above. We'll ask you some questions about your car or truck such as its year, make, model, and trim. Next, tell us about the condition of the vehicle like whether it can start and drive, how many miles are on the odometer (high mileage vehicles are fine!), and what kind of ownership documentation you have. If you're trying to sell your junk car with no title in Tennessee we may be able to help you with that!

Finally, we'll ask if the vehicle has any exterior damage such as missing or loose bumpers and body panels, large dents or hail damage, and broken or missing lights, glass, and mirrors. Answer the questions accurately and honestly and our offers will never change at the time of pickup like many bait-and-switch schemes online. Our integrity is very important to us!

The Clunker Junker stands out from other Tennessee car buyers and junk yards by making you an instant offer on your vehicle. That's right, in most cases you'll get an offer right here, right now! We understand that we live in a world that expects instant gratification. Many other car buyers simply collect your information and might get back to you in a few days with an offer, if they ever get back to you at all. If for some reason we can't make you an instant offer, we will usually get you one within one or two business days. Unfortunately we cannot always buy every car, truck, or SUV submitted to us.

We always strive to make you the fairest and highest offers and pay top dollar for your car or truck whenever possible.

   Quick and painless pickup

If you choose to accept our instant offer, we'll request a few additional details regarding pickup like the full name on the title or registration, address where the vehicle is located, vehicle identification number (VIN), and color. If you do not have a title for your car or it's not issued by the state of Tennessee let us know right away. For some newer vehicles we may also request some simple photos to verify the condition and ownership.

When we have all the information we need, one of our friendly and professional carriers will reach out to you to schedule a time for pickup. Most of our junk car buyers in the state of Tennessee are super flexible with scheduling and some even do night and weekend pickups. We can usually have your car picked up and paid for within 24 to 48 business hours, and often pick up vehicles on the same day they are submitted! However, please note that we cannot and do not guarantee any specific day or time for pickup. Towing and pickup is always free and there are zero hidden costs or fees to use our service. Payment is issued by the tow truck driver in the form of cash or check right there on the spot. There really is no easier or faster way to sell your junk car!

Frequently asked questions

Can you buy vehicles in Tennessee without title?
Yup! We buy cars without title everyday. We can't buy every car without title, but our buyers are usually pretty flexible. You will need to prove you own the vehicle by presenting a photo ID that matches your valid insurance and or registration. Your offer may also be much lower without title than with.

What if my title doesn't look like the one pictured?
Tennessee often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Tennessee clerk's office.

Do I need to turn in my licence plates?
Yes, unless you are transferring the plates to a new vehicle. You can return the plates to your local county clerk's office.

What should I do about my auto insurance? You will need to notify your auto insurance company that you have sold the vehicle so they can either cancel your policy if the vehicle was sold, or transfer/renew the policy on your new vehicle.

Is there anything else I need to do?
You may need to notify your local county clerk that you have sold the vehicle. You can contact them with any additional questions or concerns about the transfer of your title.
