Did that old clunker fail yet another smog inspection? No problem, make a quick grand or more by selling it to the Cash for Clunkers program from the state of California! Oddly enough, they want and need your old jalopy.

Cash for Junk Cars Government Program

The cash for junk cars government program is a division of the California Department of Consumer Affairs. The special department is under the California Bureau of Automotive Repair. The specific program’s name that buys your car is CAP Vehicle Retirement.

The point to the state of California buying your car is to get it off the road because it’s lived its life and is now a polluter. How do they know it’s a polluter? It just failed a smog check and it’s going to cost a lot of hard-earned cash to get it to pass. It is best to just put it down, meaning down the throat of a car cruncher. So, how much are they going to give you?

You will receive either $1000 or $1500 depending on your income. If you meet the state’s low income requirements then you will receive $1500. Finally! It literally pays to be poor and all your efforts were not for naught. Being low income is defined by 225% x the Federal poverty guideline. Here is a 2018 chart that gives all the answers.

But! This program is for everyone. If you don’t meet the low income guidelines and you want to sell it to CAP instead of giving it to the junk yard, you will receive $1000.

Of course, there are a bunch of criteria that need to be met. All the different points that you need to meet are spelled out in detail on their CAP Vehicle Retirement brochure page.

You can finally make your family happy by contacting this cash for junk cars government program. End your children’s embarrassment and sell that clunker.
