How does Knoxville cash for junk cars work?

   First, tell us about the car you're selling.

Got a junk car you want to sell for cash in Knoxville? Start by filling out our simple and intuitive 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 for cash with no title in Knoxville, TN 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.

Knoxville, TN Junk Car Removal FAQ

Do you buy campers, boats, motorcycles or other recreational vehicles for cash?

No, we currently only buy passenger cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans. In some cases we can purchase large commercial vehicles, but do not offer instant offers on these types of vehicles. Contact us directly if you have a commercial vehicle to sell.

I have a title but it's not in my name. Can you still buy my vehicle for cash?

In most cases, yes. A general rule of thumb is that payment (cash or check) will be made out to the name listed in the owner's section on the front of your Tennessee title. If the title still has the previous owner's name printed on the front, you will likely need to have a new title issued in your name before it can be sold. Most states require this so that sales tax is collected properly between each sale. In some cases, other arrangements can be made to pay a person other than the legal owner.

Can I sell my car for cash without the title in Knoxville?

It depends on a few different things like the age of your vehicle and what other documentation you may have available. We can buy some cars for cash without titles in Tennessee, but you will usually need a photo ID that matches a valid registration and/or insurance card to prove ownership. We cannot purchase abandoned vehicles or vehicles that have active liens under any circumstances. We will also not pay for impound fees if they are required to release a junk vehicle.

How are your offers calculated? Why is mine so low?

Our offers are calculated in real time based on a large number of market forces such as recent sale and auction prices, prices of raw scrap metal, current buyer inventory, distance from Knoxville to the buyer's facility, and more. Our prices always include the cost of towing, which can sometimes be more than the value of the vehicle itself. Our offers fluctuate constantly and we cannot lock in any specific price until an offer is accepted and the required information is provided.

Why should I sell my junk car to you? I can get more cash on the Knoxville Craigslist classifieds.

You're absolutely right! We simply cannot compete on price against private buyers, and we do not try to. However, The Clunker Junker can save you from a lot of the hassle of dealing with private buyers who may not be serious, don't show up when they say they will, or may not be safe or trustworthy. We can usually have your car or truck picked up within 48 hours and you'll be paid cash or check right on the spot with no gimmicks. Of course, towing is always free. It's fast, simple, and safe.

When can you pick up my car? I need cash for it today.

The Clunker Junker makes every effort to be or work with the fastest and best junk car buyers in Knoxville. Once we collect all the required information (and photos in some cases), we'll forward it to our carrier or buyer immediately and they will reach out to you to schedule an exact day and time for pickup. Our carriers usually respond within a few business hours but can sometimes take longer. Because The Clunker Junker does not directly handle scheduling, we cannot fully guarantee any specific time or date. With that said, however, most of our junk car removals happen within two business days and many even happen on the same day as submission.
