Austin, TX Junk Car Removal FAQ

Do you pay cash for cars for vehicles with salvage, rebuilt, or other title brands?

Yes, The Clunker Junker can and will buy vehicles will nearly any title brand. Additional paperwork, such as a salvage disclosure or affidavit may be needed in some cases. Please note that vehicles with unclean titles are worth less, and this is reflected in our instant offers. We cannot buy your car if you have a lien on the title. This is true in Texas and nationwide.

Is The Clunker Junker the car buyer, or a third party?

Most true junk or scrap vehicles are sold to a third party buyer, dismantler, or recycler. We do not own or operate our own junk yard or salvage yard in Austin. The Clunker Junker is always working to ensure our third party buyers operate with the highest business standards and ethics. However, The Clunker Junker does directly buy cars for cash in Austin that have not reached end of life and we'll generally pay much more than a junk yard would for these vehicles.

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 Austin. 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.

Do I have to be present when you pick up my junk car?

Not necessarily. Usually someone needs to be present, but if you sign your title beforehand it doesn't always have to be the legal owner. In general our buyers will make payment out (cash or check) to whomever's name is on the title. Many of our customers have a family or friend handle the transaction on their behalf. We've even picked up vehicles when the vehicle was in Austin but the owner was in a completely different state. Simply mail your title in to our carrier, and they can send you a check once it is received.

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 Austin 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.

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

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 Texas, 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.
