Wondering "Who pays Cash for Junk Cars Near Me"?

You're probably wondering, how that vehicle could possibly have any value at all being that it doesn't run? And if it's completely trashed, why on earth would we pay you cash for it?

Well, the simple answer is, this is what we do! Our business is buying, removing and recycling cars, trucks, vans, minivans and SUV's. We take pride in knowing that what we do not only helps folks in general, but helps our communities and the environment as well.

Fact: According to the Automotive Recycler’s Association (ARA), founded in 1943, "Approximately 86% of a vehicles material content is recycled", and "every new ton of steel made from scrap steel, conserves 2,500 lbs. of iron ore, 1,400 lbs. of coal and 120 lbs. of limestone", and "each year the industry collects and reuses or recycles an estimated 8 million gallons of gasoline, 24 million gallons of motor oil, 8 million gallons of engine coolant, 5 million gallons of windshield washer fluid and 96% of all lead acid batteries."

EPA Guidelines

We follow a strict vehicle recycling process, according to current EPA guidelines, and can assure you that your end of life vehicle will not end up polluting the environment!

There are 3 ways your vehicle offers value to you, and allows us to pay you cash for it.

1. If the vehicle is running and is only in need of minor repairs, and we have the parts available, we'll have one of our skilled mechanics repair it and we'll sell it as an inexpensive beater or possibly a decent first car for an excited new driver.

2. If the vehicle is not running that great, or not at all, and the repairs will be too expensive, we'll test, remove and recondition working parts that can be sold as an inexpensive alternative to our customers.

How to Get Rid of That Old Car for Cash

In order to make the process go as smoothly as possible, please be sure to describe the vehicle, and answer all questions as accurately as you can.

3. If the vehicle is completely trashed, and most if not all parts have either been removed or are not in working order, what remains of the vehicle will be recycled as scrap metal.

All we need is some basic information. Let us know the year, make, model and overall condition of your vehicle, title or no title, and we'll make you a top cash offer, on the spot. We'll give you a fair price for your vehicle, come to your location, remove it for free and put cash in your hand.

Chicago Area Scrap Vehicle Buyers

We've got it down to a science! Here's how it works.

After we finalize the purchase and make the pick up, the vehicle will be taken to our processing facility, where it will be thoroughly evaluated.

In cases where the unwanted vehicle is in decent running condition, but is in need of minor repairs both visually and mechanically, it may be repaired and sold as a high quality, low cost vehicle, or may be sold "as is" for a "fixer-upper."

In other cases where the vehicle is running but not that great and the repairs would be too extensive, useful parts that are in good working condition will be removed, reconditioned and offered for resale.

In yet other cases where many of the parts have already been removed, or are no longer in working order, or the vehicle is completely destroyed, what's left of it will be scrapped.

Throughout the years we have recycled over 30,000 unwanted vehicles and in turn, have not only exchanged cash for the vehicle, but have also helped our communities by removing and eliminating unsightly and potentially toxic materials from our neighborhoods, which is why we've become known as one of the best recyclers in this area.

Of course, you could attempt to fix the vehicle and sell it on your own. Or you could try to remove each individual part, test them to make sure they're in good working condition, clean them up and list them for sale. Or, you could hire a tow truck to bring the vehicle to a local scrap yard and see what they'll offer you for it.

Or, you could just contact us today. Whether you give us a call or fill out our simple online form, we'll put cash in your pocket and provide a no hassle resolution to that unsightly pile of rust by tonight. How's that for fast service? We're waiting for your call!

We ask that all personal belongings be taken out of the vehicle prior to it being removed. Once it has been towed away, there will be no way to get these items back.

Wondering "Can You Sell a Car Without a Title in Illinois?"

To be able to sell a vehicle without a title, used to be somewhat tricky, especially since the law requires confirmation of a vehicle's ownership before a transaction can take place. But now in the digital era, it's no longer a major problem for a licensed scrap processor. We can quickly, easily and legally buy it from you, even without the title.

While a title is preferred, it is not necessary as long as the following is true: 1. You have possession of the vehicle's registration that is in your name. 2. The vehicle is 10 years old or older. 3. You have the ability to provide other forms of vehicle ownership.

We will simply run the vehicle's VIN number and match that to your identification and any forms of ownership you provide us.
