Are you looking for someone located close by to sale your junk car? Don’t worry – CashforClunkers has representatives throughout the United States, all you have to do is enter your area of residence and we will match you with local cash car buyers and get you the best offer possible near you.

Our representatives have vast knowledge about buying a junk car, so you can rest assured, about getting a lucrative deal.

Our friendly customer service team will not only appraise your junk car but help you navigate the paperwork and documentation required in your state’s DMV to authorize and recognize the sale.

For instance, it is required that you are in possession of the title to the car in order to successfully execute a sale. In case you don’t have the title, you might have to get a duplicate issued from the DMV. Even though you can get a title from the DMV online, the process involves a lot of hassle. You might also have to wait for the document to be snail-mailed to you.

At Cash for Clunkers, we can assure you that the title isn’t always required.

Our representatives will go above and beyond to ensure you have a pleasant experience selling off an old car that is no longer of any use to you. We also offer a towing service free of charge – no hidden fees are included here. Our sole objective is to make the process easy, convenient, and trouble-free.

As mentioned above, you aren’t obligated to accept our cash offer. So you have absolutely nothing to lose!!

The deal is simple – we pick up the car free of charge and pay cash for it.

You don’t have to run ads in local newspapers, create listings on sites like Craigslist or AutoTrader, or search for private buyers.

You don’t even have to prepare your car for the sale – there is no need to impress anyone here with fancy detailing, repairing, etc. You also don’t have to settle for lowball deals. The transaction is completed quickly – it hardly takes 24 hours after you have visited our website to get an estimate.
