The Clunker Junker and most of our partners are still operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, customer dropoffs have been suspended until further notice. Our staff is also working remotely, please excuse any background noise in phone calls! We are doing our best to keep things running as smoothly as possible. Thank you for your business, and stay safe!

Sometimes cars act like those in cartoons by sputtering, coughing out fumes, and doing a death scene worthy of Bogart. The only thing left to do is call for a rental and have the car towed home. Maybe It goes into the back yard until you can find the time to sell your junk car.

For those who live in HOAs, condos, or apartment complexes, the resident manager breathes fire, his yelling mouth taking up the whole screen, “that piece of junk has to GO!” The car’s owner is cowering behind, hopefully, a fire-proof wall, meekly nodding, while inside thinking, “I need to find someone who pays cash for cars in Bristol, TN, and fast!”.

Fear not! TheClunker Junker’s going to swoop in like Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest to give you cash for your junk car in Bristol, TN. You need an eyesore removed. You need money to put toward a new car. We get it. We can’t wait to see the smiling happy face as you hold out your hand for the cash and waive goodbye to that old clunker.

How does it work? You’ll fill out a few facts on our website. It will only take minutes. No waiting for prayer-filled days for someone on Craigslist or the local penny saver magazine to see an ad and respond. No waiting for days while your fingernails get chewed to nubs waiting for the buyer to finally show up.

When you fill out the details of your junk car on our website, we’ll pop out an instant offer after just a few seconds. The our valuation software is making up its mind how much cash we can pay for your junk car based on the information you provided us. When you accept the offer, we will show up, usually within 48 hours, for junk car removal. The resident manager will stop breathing fire, the butterflies and birds will fly about happily tweeting, and you’ll have money to put toward a new car. Everyone lives happily ever after.

I’m sold, how does the cash for junk cars process work?

  1. First, we need to know about your car. Is the body in reasonable condition, or do the tires and body point toward each other? Does the engine start? Can the engine move the car? Being honest will avoid any contention at the time of pickup. We’ll need to know the year, make, and model of your car (such as “the car is a 2015 Nissan Altima.”) Next, you’ll tell us your zip code so we can make sure the offer comes from the closest Bristol, TN junk car buyer near you.

  2. We make you an instant offer. You accept. Now we need to know about you. Your name, address, and phone, of course, are required. We need information about the car’s title. Sometimes we ask for pictures of the car and documentation. After all this is done, we’ll notify the carrier we use for a pick-up. We’re at the mercy of his schedule, so while they work quickly we can never guarantee a specific time or day for pickup.

  3. When our Bristol, TN junk car removal specialist arrives, they’ll check over the car to see if the application matches the car. You’ll hand over your keys and the car, hold out your hand for a check, and the carrier will exit stage left.

The Clunker Junker is here to help you. We buy junk cars in Bristol, TN in most conditions (we’ve even bought wrecked and mangled autos.). We know you’re pressed for time as well as money. When we give you cash for cars, we’re taking off your shoulders the worry and the anxiety from time spent avoiding fire-breathing wives or property managers.

Sell your junk car in Bristol, and stay safe

Let’s admit it: we’re Americans. We want what we want and we want it yesterday. The word instant means something to us. It means more when we have a no-joke property manager or homeowner’s association rep frowning in distaste as s/he gives us a pink slip. Get rid of it or I will.

If you put an ad in Craigslist or in the local penny saver magazine, you have to wait for someone to answer. Then you bicker over price. Next, you wait to see if they even show up when they said they will. Only then can you in good conscience give the buyer your keys and the title to the car. Not to mention, there are some pretty sketchy characters on Craigslist and you never know if they may want to scam you or even cause you harm. The Clunker Junker fully background checks all of our Bristol junk car buyers so you can rest assured our service is compeltely safe.

Selling your junk car on the private market might take weeks or months. It might never happen at all. If it doesn’t happen, the city tows your car, leaving you with no car and no money. You might even get a bill for the towing and be responsible for impound fees. Yikes!

Our Bristol junk car removal service always includes free tow away

When The Clunker Junker buys junk cars in Bristol, TN towing is free. We realize if your car isn’t running, you possibly aren’t working. No paycheck. No money for a tow truck. We get it. We have a carrier and don’t need to trouble you to pay for towing. We just give you cash for your junk car and then get out of your hair. And smile as we watch your happy dance in the rear view mirror.

If you prefer to get a quote over the phone, you can reach us at (888) 383-4181 during our normal business hours.

How much will you pay for my car in Bristol?

Today's average value for vehicles near Bristol, Tennessee is $240 with haul away at no cost. If you have a big truck like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Lincoln Navigator, the average value is at $300, but may only be $204 for smaller and mid-size sedans like a Honda Civic. Of course, your vehicle's exact value depends on a number of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell your vehicle at auction, it's worth more than salvage values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Junk pricing is often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • Has the vehicle been in a accident? Vehicles with usable parts are often worth more money.

Do we pay cash for junk cars in Bristol, TN with no title?

Yes! In many cases (though not all) we can buy junk cars in Bristol, TN 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 Tennessee. 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 Bristol, TN 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:

Will you pick up my vehicle on the same day?

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Bristol within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer handles all their own schedules, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific pickup time on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Will I be paid by cash or check?

Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the requirements of the buyer near you 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 book keeping. If you are paid via business check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

Here is what other cash for cars customers have said:

  • Tuti's 1997 Dodge Caravan
    1997 Dodge Caravan

    "The two back tires are only one year old. I bought a brand-new driver door and passenger door. The car has over half of a tank of gas, and it drives well. The only issue is that the belt broke. "

  • Clint's 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix
    2007 Pontiac Grand Prix

    "I purchased a new vehicle so this one is no longer needed. There's minor bumper cover damage on the front and deployed airbag from low-speed sideswipe with a gate. "

  • Oscar's 1997 BMW 528
    1997 BMW 528

    "I don't have the title but I do have the paperwork that came with. The battery is dead, but I do believe she'll light right up when given a jump. The brakes are shot and the front bumper cover is hanging off, however with a little love on the brakes, a jumpstart, and a new front bumper, she'll be right as rain. "

  • Sim's 2002 Honda Accord
    2002 Honda Accord

    "The lienholder lost our title, so we do not have the original, however we did run the VIN number and are cleared of any liens. We're moving cross-country next week and need to get rid of it."

  • Margarita's 2007 Chevrolet HHR
    2007 Chevrolet HHR

    "The vehicle is nice on the inside and outside. It was a Chevrolet recall. I've gone in to fix it several times, and it supposedly gets ''fixed'', and I'm just ready to buy a new car. It has new front tires. I did want to see if I could take the recently-installed, touch-screen radio out because I've compared several websites to sell my car, and they're offering me as much as what my radio costs. I just changed the oil, and some new back taillights were installed and new windshield wipers before it wouldn't start anymore."

  • Aubrey's 1998 Honda Civic
    1998 Honda Civic

    "The Civic worked great until last Friday when it broke down while driving. The mechanic says it needs a new motor, but I'm saying I'd rather junk it for cash."
