Frequently Asked Questions


What kind of vehicles do you buy? 


We pay cash for trucks, vans, cars, semi truck, box trucks, tow trucks, and SUVs. We purchase vehicles of most condition, year, make, and model. We will also buy your boat or RV, year 1995 and newer. Here is a general list of reasons customers choose to sell their vehicles to Colorado Junk Cars:
•    I got in an accident. We specialize in buying wrecked cars.
•    My car broke down. What should I do? Many times it doesn’t make sense to spend $1,000-$5000 on a mechanical repair for your car. Sell it to us and you not only save the money you would have spent on the repair but we also pay you cash for your vehicle.
•    To avoid dealing with selling on Craigslist. Let’s face it you can get some great deals on Craigslist but you can waste a lot of time with people not showing up when they say.


How do I get a quote to sell my car? 


Quick & hassle-free! You can use our Get A Quote form to receive an offer on your car in minutes or you can simply call us at 720-279-0229.

Will you buy junk cars that are damaged or missing parts? 


We do attempt to make an offer on your vehicle, even if it is damaged, but most vehicles need to be complete. We buy wrecked cars and a lot of the times they may be missing a bumper or fender as a result of the accident. We can still buy your wrecked car but we can’t buy cars that have parts removed by individuals. In other words, if you attempted to part out your vehicle we probably aren’t interested.

Will you pick up cars directly off the highway? 


We might be able to pick up a vehicle that is on the highway and interstate. BUT we would have to contract another company to do so and your vehicle may be towed before we can get there. 

Do you sell parts from the vehicles you buy? 


At this time, we do NOT sell any parts whatsoever.

Do you buy auto parts? 


We do NOT buy auto parts. At this time, we only buy complete vehicles.

Generally, if your vehicle is being scrapped than not having keys isn’t a problem. However, if we are paying over scrap metal value then we may require keys. Especially when buying wrecked cars.

What if I have a title but I am not the owner of the car?

What Happens To My Vehicle After it’s Sold?


Our industry is very organic. As a result, your vehicle could be used in any number of ways, mainly determined by market needs.
•    Useable, mechanical parts may be remanufactured or sold as is.
•    Body panels, cladding, lights, glass, and doors can be used by automotive collision/body shops.
•    Older or less market friendly vehicles are recycled. Scrap metal is a huge parts of the automotive salvage.
