How much is my car worth in Knoxville?

The current average offer for vehicles near Knoxville, Tennessee is $252 with haul away at no cost. If you have a big pickup like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Honda Pilot, the average value is at $315, but may only be $214 for small and mid-size cars like a Volkswagen Jetta. Obviously, your vehicle's exact offer depends on a lot of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell your vehicle at wholesale auction, it's worth more than junk values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Scrap offers are often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • Has the vehicle been in a wreck? Vehicles with working parts are sometimes worth more money.

How long does the pickup take?

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

Will I be paid by cash or check?

Whether you are paid by check or cash depends on the policies of the local buyer who places a bid on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have moved to check for better record keeping and the safety of tow drivers. When 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 are any issues with the local buyer!

Here is what other cash for cars customers have said:

  • Caitlin's 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
    2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

    "The vehicle will start, and sometimes it will run. I am not worried about a cash offer more than the fact that I just want it out of my driveway. It has a radiator that is six months old, and the electric was replaced a year ago. It was wrecked into a pole, so there is damage to the hood and front restraint. "

  • Ashley's 1997 Ford Taurus
    1997 Ford Taurus

    "I need a more reliable vehicle. The car has a small amount of rust on the running boards under both back doors, and there's a dent on the driver-side rear door due to an accident."

  • Jarred's 2005 Chevrolet Impala
    2005 Chevrolet Impala

    "It's a good car. It has very nice interior. For some reason, it just keeps running hot. I recently put a new radiator, a new thermostat and a new water pump in the car, and the problem is still there. I'm asking for a $1,300 to $2,000 cash offer for it. "

  • Albaro's 2003 Nissan Altima
    2003 Nissan Altima

    "Mechanic shop shows a misfire with the spark plug and/or the coils. I replaced all six plugs less than a year ago. Just last night, it feels as if the transmission is going out. It runs for a few minutes and then stops. It has a few mechanical problems, but I don't have cash to work on this car. It's a great car when it's running. All parts except one door handle are available. During the winter freeze last year, all of the door handles cracked. It's still manageable to open, but you have to see it to understand. "

  • Jennifer's 2006 Subaru Forester
    2006 Subaru Forester

    "I purchased this car in May of 2013. It has about 168,000 miles on it. Since I have owned it, I have replaced the water pump, the timing belt, the clutch, the right and left rear wheel bearings, all four brakes, and I just put four new tires on it in July. I just had the spark plugs, valves and tubes replaced. I have done all regular maintenance - tire rotation, oil changes, etc. However, I found out in October that the head gaskets were leaking, and I broke down on the interstate. I just found out today that the transmission went out and blew out the axles. I cannot dump any more cash into this vehicle. "

  • Jennie's 2000 Chevrolet Prizm
    2000 Chevrolet Prizm

    "I decided I'd rather have a new car than put more cash into this one. I was driving it a couple days a week, but the battery died, so I would like to junk it. I jumped it yesterday to move it. I've gone through the process of having people show interest but then backing out of buying it. "
