What do you need to sell your car in Richmond?

In order for us to buy your car in Richmond, you’ll need to provide us with a bit of documentation. We’ll need your title if you have it handy and if it has a lien on it a note from a bank stating that you don’t owe any money. Aside from that, you just need to hand over the keys and the vehicle. Here are just a couple of important things to remember:

  • The title must be in the owner’s name. You can’t sell a car in Richmond if your name is signed as a buyer.
  • If no title is available, you’ll need a registration with a matching driver’s license. We cannot buy all cars without a title in Richmond.
  • We can never buy an abandoned car, you must contact your Virginia DMV.

How does The Clunker Junker calculate its offers?

When you punch your information into our offer form, we’ll take a number of factors into consideration before determining a fair value. For instance, we look at:

  • Vehicle year, make and model
  • Vehicle size and weight
  • The demand for various parts
  • The overall condition of the vehicle
  • Recent auction pricing in Richmond and across Virginia

If your car is destined for the yard, metal scrap prices are paramount. If the car isn’t roadworthy but has plenty of salvageable parts, we’ll offer more than you might think. If the car is still in working condition, we may be able to offer more than a yard or dealership!

We don't buy cars in Richmond, VA without a title

Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Richmond, 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 replacement 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 Richmond, 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:

Will you pick up my vehicle on the same day?

We can often pick up the majority of vehicles in Richmond within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer manages all their own schedules, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup time 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 business check or cash depends on the policy of the buyer near you who places a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have moved to check for the safety of tow drivers and better book keeping. When you are paid via business check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

    "The battery will not hold a charge and I don't know what else is wrong with it. It's my grandmother's car and she has already put 2000 dollars into it trying to have it fixed and still has problems with it so she is going to get a new one that we will not have to worry about."

  • Sierra's 2008 Dodge Caliber
    2008 Dodge Caliber

    "The vehicle has a dent in the rear bumper and a flat tire on the driver's front side. The vehicle runs and drives, but does not start due to a dead battery, which needs to be replaced. I am getting rid of the vehicle because I got a new one, and don't need two. "

  • Ken's 1999 Ford Escort

    "Manual transmission. We parked the car for when our teenager would drive and then he wouldn't even learn to drive a manual. He's doomed. Humidity has caused mold inside and the clear coat is peeling "

  • Jessica's 2000 Chrysler Cirrus
    2000 Chrysler Cirrus

    "Mechanic quoted me for $2000 worth of work. The starter needs to be replaced, the AC compressor is falling off, the belt is cracked, and there is one more thing wrong I can't remember. The driver's side mirror is held on by a screw and the weather stripping on the driver's door needs to be replaced."

  • Josh's 1995 Geo Prizm
    1995 Geo Prizm

    "Hi. I will be moving out of OH in the near future and will not be taking this vehicle with me due to new additions to the family. It runs relatively well but looks like it's been through a few battles. The hood on the passenger side is bent in and as a result, does not latch all the way. The interior has definitely seen better days as well."

  • Haley's 1995 Mercury Mystique
    1995 Mercury Mystique

    "It is registered in my grandmother's name. My mother wants to sell the car because she is moving and hasn't driven it in a year. I'm not sure if it starts - battery is dead and it had an oil leak. There is no title - the title can be obtained but we would have to pay $30 which is not worth it to us. We just want it gone."
