Get Cash For Your Clunker

The Cash For Clunkers program was a wildly successful federal initiative introduced in the summer of 2009. Designed to bolster the U.S. economy and the auto industry during the Great Recession, thousands of Americans took advantage of it. Individuals traded in older, less gas-efficient vehicles for newer ones with better mileage and more safety features.

Although the government program was only in place for a few months, many Americans have hoped that it would be reintroduced again. Talks of resuming Cash For Clunkers in 2020 have begun, but nothing has been proposed yet.

Luckily, if you have a clunker you want to trade in for cash, you still have options. Learn more about what you can do with an old or damaged car and how you can sell it in the sections below.

There are plenty of places to sell your junk car depending on your goals and timeline. For instance, you could trade a junk car in at a dealership to help you get a new vehicle faster. However, keep in mind that dealerships don’t specialize in damaged or junk cars. Therefore, the trade-in value may be lower than if you went elsewhere.

You could also sell your car to a junkyard or scrap yard. This might be the easiest way to sell your car, as long as you contact a yard near you.

Yards often buy vehicles based on the scrap metal value of the car. In some cases, they will have flat fees for vehicles of certain sizes. It’s a good idea to contact different yards and get a few quotes.

In some cases, you can get the most amount of money by selling your car privately to an individual. However, this depends on your car’s make and model as well as your location. Additionally, you’ll have to negotiate times for potential buyers to come see the car. In many cases, this will take you the longest amount of time.
