That’s why we pay cash for cars in Petersburg,VA and pick them up at no charge, often within 48 hours or less. We’ve been paying cash for junk cars for years, but for some reason customers still won’t bring their autos to us. They’d rather wait for eons for somebody to show up to honor a Craigslist ad.

What kind of junk car are you selling? To make you an offer, we’ll need to know some information about your junk car. How old is it? What model is it? Does it run or have any body damage? Remember, we’re buying junk cars so we don’t expect them to look or work like they just came off the showroom floor.
Accept our offer. In most cases, you’ll be presented with an offer for your junk car in seconds if one is available. If you choose to accept it and move forward with the sale, let us know where we should pick up the vehicle and how to reach you to schedule a time and day.
Get paid! Here’s where the magic happens. Our local Petersburg, VA junk car buyer will arrive on time and do a quick inspection of the vehicle to make sure the stated condition was accurate.

If you’re not too distracted by your payment, you can waive goodbye as it drives off into the sunset.
You will need to have a few things handy when we come to pick up the car, but it’s no big deal. You need a clear and free title that establishes you as the owner of the vehicle. You’re going to have to sign it over to us. You need to provide us with a set of keys so that we can access the car and remove it from your property. The only other thing you’ll need when we come is a car and a big ole smile. The big ole smile is for the money that you’re going to get for a car that you’ve beat down to the ground. The fact that you get cash for that is a definite reason for a celebration.
Now you’re probably asking the question why us? Why do we think you should sell your car to us over a similar company?

Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Petersburg, 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 Petersburg, 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:
We can usually pick up most vehicles in Petersburg within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier manages all their own pick up scheduling, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by cash or check depends on the policy of the local buyer who makes a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping. If you are paid via business check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!
"I lost the title somewhere between my moves. The coolant will leak occasionally (probably a hose that needs replacing). The car has less than 108k in miles, can run pretty smoothly (although makes a bit of sound), and has no major damage, only some scratches from years of use. Some rust from East Coast weather."
"The car needs repairs that have been estimated to cost about $1000, although much of that is for labor. It needs a new battery, alternator, and fuse box in the engine. It is otherwise in decent shape, and has been well-maintained. There is a crack in the windshield. Paint has peeled off in some places. Some of the plastic pieces in the interior have come off. It is parked at a mechanic's shop in Tyler and I would love to get something for it."
"The vehicle has front-end damage to the hood, the bumper and airbags deployed, but the radiator and motor are good with no leaks. There are some newer parts as well, like the radiator and brake calipers."
"I believe the starter went out. Also, the heater fan is broken, and the motor mounts are cracked. Other than that, it ran well before it stopped. It just costs too much in labor for me to fix it. I'm looking to junk it for a decent cash offer. Thank you in advance for your time!"
"The vehicle is burning oil, and there's a knocking sound coming from the front end that I have been told could possibly be the struts or the shocks going bad. The headliner is falling down. There's a dent in the rear bumper, and the clear coat has peeled off in some places."
"There's a small dent on the back passenger side. The car does run, but it needs a new alternator to be fully repaired (the alternator died on my drive home from work). I'm not replacing the alternator myself because I am purchasing a new car. I would rather save for the new car than repair one I planned on getting rid of in a few months, anyway. "
