Can you buy junk cars with no title in Salt Lake City, UT?

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Salt Lake City, UT but we cannot guarantee it in all cases.

How long does the pickup take?

We can often pick up most vehicles in Salt Lake City within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer handles all their own pick up scheduling, so we can never fully guarantee a specific pickup time on their 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 business check depends on the policies of the local buyer who makes an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have moved to check for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping. If you are paid via check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!
