We cannot pay cash for cars in Charleston, WV without a title

Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Charleston, WV. Sorry about this! West 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 Charleston, WV 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 the pickup take?

We can often pick up the majority of vehicles in Charleston within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer handles all their own pick up schedules, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup window on the carrier'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 policies of the buyer near you who makes an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers. When you are paid via check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

    2005 Hyundai Elantra

  • Brendan's 1995 Ford Taurus
    1995 Ford Taurus

    "The airbags have been deployed, the frame may be bent, and the radiator is damaged. My grandfather and I are the only two owners. It would be a great parts car. The windshield is severely cracked, but the engine starts and runs well. There are no oil leaks."

  • Timothy's 2001 Chevrolet Suburban
    2001 Chevrolet Suburban

    "This vehicle was parted out. It has no rear tires, only front tires. I am not asking for any compensation. I am just asking that you come and get it off of my property. I am available on weekends or after 5:00pm on weekdays. Thanks. "

  • Elizabeth's 1993 Mercury Grand Marquis
    1993 Mercury Grand Marquis

    "I finally realized that it's not worth putting another dime into. Currently, it needs brakes, a new wiper motor and a new window motor. I stopped driving it three weeks ago, so it needs a jump start. It's dented a little. "

  • Craig's 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Amber's 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis
    2003 Mercury Grand Marquis

    "The vehicle runs and drives, but it has a coolant leak from the intake manifold. It has not overheated. I noticed the leak and parked it. The windshield has a crack in it. The tires, alternator, battery, rear shocks, driver power window switch, spark plugs, belt and tensioner were replaced in the past two years. I cannot afford to fix it due to medical bills, and I want to get it off of the insurance. It has leather power windows and door locks."
