Absolutely! Cash for Clunkers now is a private vehicle buying service designed to connect sellers with local cash buyers near you who will collect your vehicle and pay cash on the spot! Get paid cash for cars today.

The original program lasted only a few months, offering the option to customers to trade in older cars with poor fuel economy for newer vehicles with improved EPA-estimated mileage. The government would pay up to $4500 but only if very specific qualifications were met, and payment took months to arrive.

Fortunately, the current car buy back program pays cash for junk cars in ANY condition + a FREE tow! Find out your car’s value in only 2 mins and get paid as quickly as 24-72 hours! Plus, Cash for Clunkers now donates to Feeding America with every car we buy so that customers can make cash AND a difference in the lives of hungry Americans.
