A junk car can also be called a decrepit car, junker, scrap car, old car, totaled car, parts car, jalopies, old unwanted vehicles, clunkers, and economically nonrepairable vehicles. According to Section 19.015 a nonrepairable vehicle is one that has no resale value as anything other than parts or scrap metal and was stripped when recovered from theft, has been completely burned, or the owner has declared the vehicle nonrepairable for a reasonable cost or is completely nonrepairable.

    Yes, Junk Car Medics offers free junk car removal in Santa Ana and all surrounding areas. Junk Car Medics works with local towing companies to offer junk car removal in all suburbs and neighborhoods of Santa Ana including the 4 most popular suburbs and neighborhoods.

    • Laguna Woods, California: Laguna Woods borders the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. As such, there is little tolerance for junk cars in public view in Laguna Woods. If one were to get a parts car, project car, or historic car and intends to store it for some time they would need to have or erect a garage first.
    • Seal Beach, California: Seal Beach is  mostly middle class families and students attending the nearby university. As such there are many used vehicles purchased in the area. This makes junk car removal in Seal Beach extremely important and prevalent.
    • La Palma, California: La Palma is the Santa Ana suburb with the lowest cost of living. It is also a short commute to the myriad of available jobs in downtown Santa Ana. Because of this many low-income families and households on fixed incomes are prevalent in La Palma. Most people are renting their homes or apartments. La Palma residents often buy very old used cars or rebuilt salvage cars that reach the end of their lives and must be towed by a tow truck in La Palma.
    • San Marino, California: San Marino is a favorite suburb of Santa Ana for average middle class families. These households are much more likely to have later model vehicles, but they are also still likely to purchase those vehicles used. This means that a lot of vehicles end up needing repairs too costly to make such repair possible. These junk cars should be promptly recycled for cash in Santa Ana to put toward another used vehicle.
    • Thornton Park, Santa Ana: Thornton Park is the place to settle for middle class families that want to stay within the Santa Ana city limits. It has many of the same perks and needs as San Marino, although the close proximity to Santa Ana junk car buyers allows them to pay more cash for decrepit cars in Thornton Park.
    • Shadow Run, Santa Ana: Shadow Run is an older, beautiful neighborhood in Santa Ana filled with affordable single family homes. Most of those homes are owned rather than rented. This is because the affordable homes and cost of living in Shadow Run are perfect for starting families and other first home buyers. These households are also more likely to buy very old used cars and to need more frequent junk car removal in Santa Ana.
    • Bristol-Warner, Santa Ana: Bristol-Warner is a neighborhood for struggling families. Public transportation is prevalent and many residents of this Santa Ana neighborhood do not own vehicles. Those who do own vehicles usually purchase rebuilt salvage cars and other old decrepit vehicles that do not last long before needing to be recycled.
