Nicknamed the “Crossroads of America,” Indianapolis is the state capital of Indiana and home to a rich sports heritage thanks to the Colts, Pacers, and of course the legendary Indianapolis 500 race. And with an area of over 368 square miles, a working and reliable car is an absolute must for anyone living in Indianapolis. If your old junk car is quickly getting past its prime, then it’s probably time to sell it off and upgrade.

But local junkyards and Indianapolis junk car buyers can often be hard to deal with. You might have to tow your car across town, just to have multiple buyers offer scrap prices, or put up ads in the paper and hope you can find a private buyer. It’s a frustrating and time-consuming process, and it’s absolutely unnecessary. Because with CarBrain you can get a guaranteed online offer in less than 90 seconds, without leaving the comfort of your home or office.
