People who own junk cars usually fall into two categories. There are those who think their junk car has significant value and there are those who believe their junk car isn’t worth the cost of hauling it off. In reality there is usually a happy medium between the two. It’s probably safe to say your old clunker isn’t worth a fortune even if you are truly sentimental about it. You might have created years of memories in that vehicle, but those are non-transferable. Your junk car still might not always be the treasure for someone else. You have to think about it from the perspective of the potential buyer. But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean it’s worthless! We pay cash for cars in Lenoir City, TN!
That’s right we buy junk cars, trucks, and SUVs in nearly any condition. We aren’t your average Lenoir City, TN junk car buyer. We also provide free junk car removal. This complimentary towing saves you money in the long run. This basically makes sure you get extra added value within your vehicle.
Deterioration is a huge factor with any used vehicle. The car ages especially when you don’t have time to care for it. You might not be able to wash it or perform expensive preventive maintenance on it. It might be constantly exposed to the elements and not garaged. This means it suffers at the hands of the weather. The natural weather elements can have a tremendous negative impact on the condition, and therefore the value of any vehicle. We’re talking about rust and faded paint. This means quick depreciation. Your old vehicle is turning into a clunker quickly. You might have thought you could eventually restore it. Eventually rust wins with an unprotected vehicle. Dust also is a major culprit. This goes on top of the years of wear and tear.
Luckily we buy junk cars in Lenoir City, TN. This means you can utilize the cash for whatever you want. You can pay bills. You can possibly plan a vacation. You can make a payment or two on your new vehicle. We know your vehicle has value. Do other people? It’s impossible and improbable to sell your junk car online these days if it’s in bad shape.

That’s one reason why we buy junk cars. But what if your car isn’t really considered junk? In that case we can actually offer more cash for your car than a local Lenoir City, TN junk yard can because we have a process to sell junk cars at wholesale auctions, something they can’t do!

"The power steering pump and rack need to be replaced, it needs a new belt, and both of the windows need new mechanisms to roll down. The door panels need to be put back on as well. It does run but not for long without making things worse. It has between 170,000 miles and 180,000 miles on it. The battery is dead, and it can't be jumped until Saturday. I just need this car gone so that I can fix my other car."
"There's damage to the right front headlight and the corner. There's possible damage to the radiator as well. All other parts of the vehicle are intact and in good condition. It has around 160,000 miles on it. It's not drivable due to the headlight damage and radiator damage. The battery, transmission and engine are in the vehicle along with all four tires being mounted. "
"She's a Cavalier RS with an intermittent random misfire. The cause of it is unknown. I've had her fuel injectors cleaned, spark plugs replaced and some wiring fixed recently. The odometer hasn't worked in years, so the mileage is only a very rough guess."
"The hand brake doesn't work. I still have all four rims for the car, but the two front tires are no good. I got the car as part of a deal when I sold my car so that I would have something in the meantime to drive. I don't want to put any time, cash or effort into fixing it, and I would rather just junk it for some cash."
"The car has two dents (not huge) on the right side. The interior parts are all there, but they've fallen apart. The car will drive but not very far (alternator issues). "
"There is a hand-sized dent in the front right fender, a couple of scratches on the body, the driver's seat is a little wonky, and the water pump just took out my timing belt. It's not worth it to me to fix it, even though just last week I put on a brand-new rear right tire. Other than those things, it's still a nice vehicle."
