How The cash for clunkers 2021 program works

Cash for Clunkers 2021 is a program designed to make getting rid of that old vehicle simple and fast. We have local car buyers near you looking for vehicles just like yours and are ready to make a top dollar offer TODAY.

It really is easy! All that you need to do is call Cash for Clunkers or fill out an anonymous form. We will then ask you a few easy and quick questions to make sure we are giving you the top dollar for your car. Unlike the federal government program (CARs Program), that required the seller to make a car purchase of a fuel efficient vehicle and had to be in good condition to receive credit. We take any vehicle – all year, makes, models, and condition. You will receive a fair, upfront cash offer!

At that point, if you are happy with the professional, friendly service & top cash offer, we will get things in motion. We will take care of all the arrangements to pick up your vehicle and pay you cash on the spot. No hassles, we make it that simple!

Don’t worry if you can’t find the title and ownership paperwork – aka the ‘pink slip.’ We have a national vehicle database that enables us to verify ownership of the vehicle. Saving you the headache, time, and cost of securing new ownership paperwork.


Cash for Clunkers makes it simple and quick to get rid of that junk vehicle. In just a matter of minutes, you can get a top dollar offer for your vehicle and paid quickly!
