Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Cash For Clunkers Program?

The Cash for Clunkers program was a financial incentive program introduced by the Obama administration in June 2009. It was designed to encourage Americans to junk older, less fuel-efficient vehicles and purchase newer, safer cars in order to help improve the economy during the Great Recession.

The program ran from June to November 2009 and helped junk more than 700,000 cars in the United States. Although California has introduced a similar vehicle retirement program, the Cash for Clunkers program is no longer running.

How Can I Junk My Car For Cash?

If you want to sell your junk car for fast cash, you still have several options to do so. For instance, you can:

  • Sell your car to a junkyard
  • Sell your car to a scrap yard
  • Sell your car online

When you sell your car to a junkyard or scrap yard, you will receive an offer for the scrap metal value of your car. The yard will most likely break your car up into parts. Usable and profitable parts, like the engine, may be resold to other companies or customers. Non-usable parts will be sent to recycling centers.

When contacting junkyards and scrap yards, it’s important to ask if they will operate in your area. If you call a yard that’s far away, it might charge additional fees or refuse to tow your car. Additionally, make sure to ask if there are any fees for using their service. If there is, you should choose a different yard.

Another way to junk your car is to sell it online. Many online buyers will accept junk cars and then send them to auctions, recycling centers or yards in bulk. In some cases, you can get paid more than just the scrap metal value of your vehicle. Additionally, it’s generally easier to determine if an online car buyer will operate in your area compared to a junkyard or scrap yard.

What Is The Best Way To Get Cash For Junk Cars?

The best way to sell your junk car is to go online. Online car buyers can help you get a quote faster and with less effort. You don’t need to bring your car anywhere to get a quote, and you can quickly compare your options without leaving your house.

However, not all online car buyers are the same. Some may offer you a preliminary quote that changes when the tow truck driver arrives to pick up your vehicle. Others guarantee their offers ahead of time, so you know you won’t get a bait and switch.

Additionally, you should always make sure to ask about any charges or fees. Some buyers might offer you a high quote, but then charge you for the cost of towing your car away. Therefore, even when you’re selling your junk car online, you should always make an effort to compare quotes and policies to determine which company is the best one for you.
