How do we set our cash for cars offers?

There are a variety of factors that contribute to the offers we make in our car removal service. The price we offer is free of fees, but it does take some calculation on our part. Here are some things we consider when we buy cars in Chattanooga, TN:

  • Age of the vehicle. We can often resell and auction newer cars and can pay more than scrap metal prices.
  • Condition. A car that runs and drives can often be worth more than one that doesn’t.
  • Make and model. You won’t be surprised to learn that a 2008 Lexus is worth more than a 1998 Chevy Cavalier.
  • Vehicle size and weight. When cars go to an auto salvage yard in Chattanooga, prices are based on how much the vehicle weighs.
  • Seasonal fuel prices and distance for pickup and delivery. Tow trucks are expensive to run and maintain!

What happens after we buy cars in Chattanooga?

We’re not just car buyers in Chattanooga; we also do auto recycling. Depending on the car and its condition, we will:

  • Crush and recycle it if it’s totally junked. We make sure all fluids are disposed of per EPA standards.
  • Remove and try and sell parts from it if the car is mostly ; anything left over is recycled
  • Repair and try and resell it if it has only minor damage.
  • Sell the car at an auction or to a dealer if it’s in good shape.

We pay cash for cars in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and it’s a simple, three-step process. We can get rid of that headache vehicle as fast as possible when we buy that car from you. Fill out our form today, and get an instant offer for cash for your car from The Clunker Junker!

Do you buy junk cars in Chattanooga, TN without a title?

Yes! In many cases (though not all) we can buy junk cars in Chattanooga, 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 Chattanooga, 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:

How long does it take to tow away my vehicle?

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Chattanooga within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer takes care of all their own schedules, so we can never fully guarantee a specific pickup time on the carrier'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 places an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for better record keeping and the safety of truck drivers. If you are paid by business check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

Here is what other customers have said:

  • Courtney's 2000 Ford Focus
    2000 Ford Focus

    "The vehicle has a broken windshield and back right taillight. It does not start, and the transmission is blown. The car cannot go in reverse if it were to be started. It is at the back of a rather long driveway. "

  • Rebecca Morales's 2001 Chrysler Town & Country
    2001 Chrysler Town & Country

    "I have the title at home, but I live six hours away from the vehicle. I'd prefer to get rid of the car before leaving the area. I can mail the title or sign off on it. The power transmission is going out."

  • Jesse's 2002 Cadillac Seville
    2002 Cadillac Seville

    "My wife hit a deer and smashed the radiator in. It still runs and drives but unfortunately, she smashed the hood in completely. It needs to be replaced, but we can't afford it right now. The engine and transmission both run great!"

  • Nancy's 1991 Chevrolet S-10
    1991 Chevrolet S-10

    "The outside of this truck looks bad because it has been painted several times, and some of it is coming off. However, all of the body panels, etc., are fine. I don't think it has ever been wrecked. All of the glass is fine, and there are no cracks. The interior is hopeless. There's little or none of it worth salvaging. The two front tires are flat, but the rear tires hold air very well. It was parked in 2008 due to the brakes failing, and it hasn't been moved since then. I was able to start it a couple of years ago, so I know the engine still runs if jumped."

  • Dan's 1989 Toyota Pickup
    1989 Toyota Pickup

    "The car runs and has a newer battery, but the alternator belt broke and I didn't want to pay to fix it because I was told it likely won't pass the next emissions test."

  • Rose's 2000 Subaru Legacy
    2000 Subaru Legacy

    "I bought the vehicle last Saturday for my niece not knowing anything about cars. LEMON. It leaks oil and needs a major head gasket repair that's not worth fixing. It's safe to drive but won't risk my niece driving it and possibly getting stuck."
