What is the value of my vehicle in Charlottesville?

Today's average offer for vehicles near Charlottesville, Virginia is $254 with free towing. If you have a big truck like a Chevy Silverado or SUV such as a Ford Excursion, the average value is a bit more at $317, but could be $215 for smaller and mid-size sedans like a Volkswagen Passat. Of course, your vehicle's real value depends on a number of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell your vehicle at auction, it's worth more than salvage values.
  • How big is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Salvage offers are often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • Does the vehicle work correctly? Vehicles with good parts are sometimes worth more .

We cannot buy cars in Charlottesville, VA without a title

Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Charlottesville, VA. Sorry about this! Virginia has very strict laws around vehicle ownership and we are at the mercy of following those regulations. You would need to obtain a replacemnt or duplicate title from your local DMV (see below). Once you have your title in hand we'll be happy to buy your junk car!

If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Charlottesville, VA DMV as seen below. Most states require a small fee for replacement and turnaround time can be anywhere from instantly to a couple of weeks:

How long does it take to pick up my vehicle?

We can pick up the majority of vehicles in Charlottesville within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer manages all their own pick up scheduling, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on the buyer's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

What form of payment will be made, cash or check?

Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the requirements of the buyer near you who makes a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for better record keeping and the safety of tow drivers. When you are paid via check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!

Here is what other cash for cars customers have said:

  • Katherine's 2006 Honda Civic
    2006 Honda Civic

    "The hybrid battery needs to be replaced, and a motherboard component needs to be replaced as well. Other than that, the car runs fine. The tires still have 50,000 miles or more of life left on them. The windshield is one year old, and it has brand-new windshield wipers. "

  • Blayke's 2000 Chrysler LHS
    2000 Chrysler LHS

    "The interior is missing one door handle, and there is only one broken headlight. Everything else is intact. The tires are also inflated as well as in good condition with good tread on them."

  • Cecilia's 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
    1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

    "The car at the moment has two major problems that keep it from being driveable. The gas tank has a leak, and the coolant fluid rapidly leaks from the car within a 36-hour period causing the engine to overheat. Also, because it is a northern car, the underside of the car is significantly rusted. Regarding the dents, there is one shallow dent in the hood where a deer was hit, and there is another small dent on the driver side from getting too close to a small pole."

  • Aaron's 2006 Hyundai Elantra
    2006 Hyundai Elantra

    "The sunroof to the car is broken, so there is some rain that got in and crated a little bit of mold on the interior. Other than that, the car is is in good driving condition, and it has been regularly maintained. "

  • Alex's 2003 Volkswagen Jetta
    2003 Volkswagen Jetta

    "The vehicle was in an accident this morning. It was hit on the front left bumper and looks pretty damaged there. Before the accident, it was in excellent condition, so anything that is still intact would be in good condition as well."

  • James's 1998 Buick Park Avenue
    1998 Buick Park Avenue

    "The front windshield has a crack in it, and it has an oil leak. I have an old key, but it's not the right key code to start the car, and the driver-side front door handle is broken."
