We buy junk cars in San Marcos, so say goodbye to auctions and classifies.

We buy cars in San Marcos and dealing with us is the easy way to go because we seamlessly pay cash for cars without all the hassle. But you still may be tempted to try to make more money by selling to an individual. As you’ll quickly learn, selling your used or to private buyers is often way more work than it’s worth.

You will have to advertise and create ads and listings on several sites, answer emails and phone calls, arrange to show your vehicle to people who probably won’t show up anyway, watch strangers drive off on a test drive with your vehicle as you hope they return it. And you probably do not feel comfortable inviting strangers over to your home or place of work. This will go on for several weeks unless/until your asking price is low enough to attract a buyer. Our San Marcos junk car buyers are all fully vetted and background checked, so you never have to fear being scammed or harmed.

If you sell your vehicle to an individual, you may have to deal with DMV paperwork, and what if you or the buyer signs the title incorrectly? We’ve been doing title work in Texas and can help you through nearly any title situation. If you do not disclose your vehicle’s mechanical problems in your advertisements or to people who respond to your advertisements and your lemon breaks down on the buyer immediately after the sale, you may be slapped with legal action. There go your profits.

Salvage yards and junkyards often present their own set of problems. They are not interested in paying a respectable amount of cash for your car or offering free car removal in San Marcos, TX, so they may not pay you the amount of money they promised you, or they’ll show up without the check. They may have fly-by-night haulers who charge you to tow the vehicle away.

You’ve got a vehicle that you need to get rid of, but most of the options to sell it are riddled with problems. Let The Clunker Junker help. We buy junk cars and trucks and do it in an ethical manner. So what are you waiting for? We are paying cash for cars right now!

If you prefer to get a quote over the phone, you can reach us at (888) 383-4181 during our normal business hours.

Do you pay cash for junk cars with no title in San Marcos, TX?

How long does the process take?

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

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by cash or check depends on the policy of the local buyer who makes an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers. When you are paid by check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

Here is what other customers have said:

  • Laura's 1994 Ford Ranger Extended Cab Pickup
    1994 Ford Ranger Extended Cab Pickup

    "There is a large crack in the front windshield. Though it's drivable, the brakes and rotors I believe need to be replaced. I'm junking it because it's older, doesn't have much resale value, and it is just taking up space."

  • Armen's 1978 winnebago brave '23
    1978 winnebago brave '23

    "It was in running shape when I parked it six years ago, but rain damage and time have destroyed it. It's basically just able to be towed away and junked. I'm told that the motor was a good one, a Dodge 355 or something like that. It ran great before I parked it."

  • Ted's 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse
    1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse

    "The car will need a new clutch. I have one, it just needs to be installed. I just don't have the time to work on it or use it anymore. The title is clear, but I cannot find it. A lost title would have to be filed for me to provide one. "

  • Mack's 1997 Nissan Quest
    1997 Nissan Quest

    "The car just received four brand-new tires, two brand-new front axles, a brand-new radiator and new struts. I was involved in a hit-and-run, and the body damage exceeds what I can spend on repairs. The engine has no damage. The vehicle also has a new water pump. I was hit at 95mph on the drive side above the left tire, and it definitely damaged the left quarter panel and the hood. I drove it home from the accident."

  • Jean's 1992 Buick Century
    1992 Buick Century

    "There's a lot of body damage. The car runs, but is starting to release blue smoke from the exhaust. The interior carpeting and the roof upholstery have been removed. I own the vehicle, but all my papers were left in another state. I moved out here about six months ago, and recently purchased two newer cars, and I have no real need for this one. It's currently not registered. Everything works from the transmission to the blinkers to the headlights. The windshield is cracked, and it's missing the driver-side passenger window. It also has no radio. The front passenger door does not open. The driver door only opens from the outside. The front right headlight works, but the blinker glass/cover is broken. The bumper is missing a small section on the far right. The inside upholstery and seats are pretty beat up. Thank you for your time."

  • Xiaofei's 2008 Volkswagen Jetta
    2008 Volkswagen Jetta

    "The left rear wheel was hit by another vehicle, and it was distorted. It seems not worth the cash to repair it. There are some body damages around that wheel. Anything else, including engine and transmission, are in good condition. The other three tires are almost new."
