We all love our cars, but sometimes we have to come to terms with the fact that it’s time to let them go. Selling an old car that you have become attached to can be heartbreaking, but deep down inside you know it’s finally time to sell your junk car.

Your old clunker may be collecting more than just dust. By now it’s probably starting to rust and may not even be able to start and drive anymore. At this point it’s just an eye soar and is taking up precious space in your driveway or garage. Your neighbors start giving you dirty looks because they’re sick of looking at your junk car rotting away in your otherwise nice neighborhood. It’s time to sell your junk car in Racine, WI and The Clunker Junker wants to help!
If you have a junk 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 junk yards 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 junk 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 junk 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 junk 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 junk cars in Racine, WI you can be sure our local junk car buyers will show up on time and maintain communication with you throughout the process.
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:
Enter your junk car details. To kick off the process we will need to let us know what kind of junk 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 junk car with no title, we often can.
Receive your instant offer. In most cases you’ll receive an instant offer for your junk 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 junk car based on the information you provide and various market forces like the price of scrap metal, parts inventory, and recent auto auction sales.
Get paid cash on the spot. If you accept our offer we’ll send one of our awesome Racine, WI junk car buyers your way. They’ll quickly inspect the vehicle to make sure your description was accurate and exchange cash for your junk car right at the time of pickup.

"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."
"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. "
"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. "
"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."
"The vehicle is unregistered. I have a bill of sale from the dealership and a title, but I haven't had a chance to transfer my name onto it. The car has been parked for months and is burning a hole in my pocket, so I just want to junk it for some cash. "
"The driver-side window doesn't roll down. It needs a battery but can be started with a jump. The interior needs a good cleaning because it's been sitting in the garage for a long while."
