We’ve been buying junk cars in Portland, TN for almost a decade, so we already know what you’re thinking: “I could get more cash for my junk car by selling it myself!”. You know what? We won’t lie to you, you’re probably right. But ask yourself how much your time, energy, and sanity is really worth. Selling your junk car online can be a major headache. Here are some common pitfalls you’ll almost definitely run into if you try and get cash for junk cars in Portland, TN by selling to a private junk car buyer:
You’ll spend a good amount of time creating (And sometimes paying for) an ad on a classifieds site. You’ll need dozens of photos of the vehicle, and you’ll need to write a compelling ad that will catch people’s attention. All of these things take your precious time that could be much better spent spending time with family or friends.
Once your perfectly written ad is posted, you’ll start to get messages from potential junk car buyers in Portland, TN. Sounds great, right? The problem is that not a single one of them have actually read the ad you spent all that time writing, and you’ll get the same questions that you’ve already answered from multiple people every day. “How many miles are on it?”, “What’s wrong with it?”, “Will you trade it for an Xbox?”. You start to realize that getting cash for your junk car in Portland, TN from The Clunker Junker might have been a much better idea.
Finally, you have a buyer that seems serious and wants to come take a look at your junk car! You set an appointment to meet for Thursday at 6:30pm. When 7:00pm rolls around, then 8:00pm, you start to realize you just had your time completely wasted by another no-show junk car buyer. Unfortunately this is all too common, people will have absolutely no respect for your time and will gladly waste as much as you’re willing to give them.
At this point it’s probably time to throw in the towel. You gave it your best shot and learned a valuable lesson: When you want to sell your junk car in Portland, TN contact The Clunker Junker and let us pay you cash on the spot and tow it away free of charge.

You might be tempted to reach out to a local Portland salvage yard directly to sell your junk car, but like selling on Craigslist, this comes with its own set of headaches. Many of these salvage yards are owned and staffed by some pretty unsavory characters. Not only are they usually very rude and uncaring, but some of the worst ones will actively try and take advantage of you. They know that most people aren’t sure how much a junk car in Portland is really worth, so they’ll give you an unreasonably low offer. On top of that, they may even make you pay for the towing yourself! A common scam run by auto salvage yards is to offer you one amount on the phone, and then offer you less when you bring the car to them.
Selling your junk car to The Clunker Junker ensures that as long as your vehicle was described honestly and accurately, the offer you see on your screen is the amount you’ll see on your check, period.

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Portland within 1 to 3 business days.

Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the policies of the local buyer who makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have moved to check for better record keeping and the safety of truck drivers. When you are paid via check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!
"There's water in the oil and I think that's bad. It's real milky looking. The truck doesn't start because of a bad terminal on the battery. I have the keys and the title."
"The vehicle has three busted windows and three flat tires. The engine runs, but it needs a serpentine belt. It's a V6, and it's a great car. I just need to be out from under it, and I'm working on using the cash for junking it towards a new car."
"This car has been sitting for two years. I drove it for a few months afterwards. Then, I got another car. Currently, I'm moving, and I don't have anywhere to keep it. It needs a little bit of attention to the V-tech leather interior. "
"The vehicle runs and drives. It needs a new battery, and the clutch is worn. The engine is solid. It has one small dent/scratch on the passenger door, and it has a new passenger door regulator and window in the back seat."
"The rear-view mirror is off. I bought it with the dents already in it, and I'm junking it because I no longer want it. Nothing is missing from the engine. I misunderstood the question. There are just two inflated tires, and no interior is missing either. Sorry for any confusion!"
"There is no radio or speakers in car. The engine ran until the fuel pump failed three weeks ago. The right front wheel bearing is going out, and there is a clunking sound in the left rear suspension. The body rocker area is rusted out on both sides. I'm junking the car because to fix all of the mechanical issues would cost more than the car is worth."
