We buy cars in Racine, WI and can pay more than junkyards

If you have a car, the first thing that probably comes to mind when you need to get rid of it is to call up a local Racine junkyard. This makes sense, but here’s the dirty truth: A lot of those junkyards are run by pretty sleazy characters. They’re trying to make a quick buck at your expense and have some tricks up their sleeves. First, they’ll offer you cash for your car over the phone and when the driver shows up, they’ll try and pay you less than you agreed to. This is called a “bait and switch” and is extremely common. The other downside is that salvage yards can really only pay what the vehicle is worth in parts and raw materials. In some cases, The Clunker Junker can beat those prices by up to 10 times because rather than crush and recycle your car, sometimes we can re-sell them at auction for much higher prices.

You might also search for a junk car buyer in Racine, WI on classifieds websites. This comes with a whole new set of problems. We’ve all tried to sell something online, and we all know how unreliable private buyers can be. Someone will show interest in your car and will all of a sudden stop responding to you for no good reason. Maybe you get so far as to schedule an appointment with someone to buy your junk car, and they never show up. When we pay cash for cars in Racine, WI you can be sure our local car buyers will show up on time and maintain communication with you throughout the process.

How to get the most cash for your car in Racine, WI

So how does all this work? We’re glad you asked! We pride ourselves in providing a really simple service. In general, it can be broken down into three parts:

  1. Enter your car details. To kick off the process, we will need to let us know what kind of car you want to sell and where in Racine it’s located. We’ll also need to know what condition it’s in and whether you have the title for the vehicle. If you are trying to sell your junk car with no title, let us know. While we can’t guarantee we can buy every car with no title, we often can.

  2. Receive your instant offer. In most cases, you’ll receive an instant offer for your car right on our website. Others will “call you back” if you’re lucky. We’ve invested in creating a software system that can instantly evaluate the value of your car based on the information you provide and various market forces like the price of scrap metal, parts inventory, and recent auto auction sales.

  3. Get paid cash on the spot. If you accept our offer, we’ll send one of our awesome Racine, WI car buyers your way. They’ll quickly inspect the vehicle to make sure your description was accurate and exchange cash for your car right at the time of pickup. Of course, they will also tow your junk car away free of charge. There are never any hidden fees when you sell your junk car to The Clunker Junker

Do you buy junk cars with no title in Racine, WI?

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Racine, WI but we cannot guarantee it in all cases. It may depend on a number of different factors, such as the age of the vehicle and the exact location. Ultimately it is up to our local junk car buyers. If we can pay cash for your junk car with no title you will need to have a photo ID matching a valid registration to prove ownership. Also note that offers for cars with no title may be significantly lower!

If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Racine, WI 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 process take?

We can pick up the majority of vehicles in Racine within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer takes care of all their own schedules, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup window 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 check depends on the requirements of the local buyer who makes an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for the safety of tow drivers and better book keeping. If you are paid by check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

    "The vehicle has had a new radiator, manifold gasket, power steering pump and plugs added, but it still will not start. I don't want to spend any more cash, so I have decided to junk it. I need it gone today. The tags expire tonight. Thank you."

  • Samantha's 1988 Toyota Corolla
    1988 Toyota Corolla

    "It's a junk car. The last time it had a battery, it started, but it doesn't now because there's no battery. It's been sitting for a few months, and I just want to get rid of it now. "

  • Tomeka's 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

    "I have the title signed from the previous owner, but I never went to the DMV to get it transferred over into my name. I am not sure if this complicates things in a way that this can not work, but I really need the car removed because it can no longer stay in the driveway. Not too long after buying the truck last year, I was rear-ended during an accident, and I had no insurance and neither did the person who hit me. There is considerable rear-end damage, and the truck will not start. It would have to be towed, and I need it towed by tomorrow morning. "

  • Jonathan's 1998 Chevrolet Blazer

    "The vehicle is unable to be inspected, but it starts and runs well. There's a list of repairs from the mechanic for inspection. These include the radiator, heater core, a brake caliper leak, the rocker panel and the rear bumper rust repair. The list of damaged items includes a fuel level sensor, paint damage, the A/C does not work, the heater fan noise while the heat is on, most of the speakers will not work/randomly work which may be faulty wiring, there are scratches on the mirrors, the driver-side seat is ripped, the driver-side window motor is dying, one of the sunroof motors/gears are broken, the interior floor is ruined on the driver and passenger side, the radio/CD-player works but CD's skip sometimes, the left top brake light needs to be replaced, 4x4 does not work, and I do not know why."
