Eric's Expert Take
Eric is our founder and CEO and has nearly 15 years of experience buying and selling used and junk cars. He is also a data nerd with a finger on the pulse of the cash for cars industry and salvage vehicle values.
Hello, everyone! I’m Eric Mitz, the CEO and proud founder of The Clunker Junker. I’ve spent more than a decade immersed in the cash for cars industry, buying and selling all types of used vehicles. Today, I’ve poured over our recent data from across the country, and here are some interesting details!
In general, we’re paying an average of about $587 for different types of vehicles in various regions. Small cars like, say, a Honda Civic, tend to fetch a bit less, averaging at about $547. This may be due to their ubiquity and lower maintenance costs. Why not sell your old Civic to us instead of dealing with frequent repair bills?
On the upside, pickup trucks like the sturdy Ford F-150, are fetching the finest offers, with our average payout hovering around $733. After all, its robust build and unquestionable utility mean we can guarantee a fair price for your truck.
SUVs and crossovers, vehicles like the Chevrolet Traverse, nestle somewhere between small cars and pickup trucks, with an average offer from us at around $654. These versatile vehicles offer a blend of comfort and functionality that makes them quite popular on the used car market.
From our recent records, we have purchased around 494,141 vehicles! Yes, you read that right. And in the process, we have pumped more than 300 Million dollars back into the economy. Noteworthy in our repertoire of purchases is the Honda Accord. This popular mid-size sedan, despite its comfortable ride and fuel efficiency, comes saddled with recurrent transmission issues and brake problems. Consequently, selling it to us may be a better option than digging into your pockets for never-ending repairs.
Taking a bird’s-eye view of the market, prices have remained relatively steady, with a minimal change of -0.2% each month. This echoes the trend we observed a year ago, and I foresee this stability sticking around for a bit longer. This puts you, the seller, in a fantastic position to cash in on your used vehicle while the market remains stable.
As I continue to monitor the industry trends, expect regular updates on important stats and insights. If now seems like a great time to turn your used vehicle into cash, that’s because it is. Remember, at The Clunker Junker, we’re here to help you jettison your junker effortlessly and enjoy a smooth ride to your bank!

This is what we're most proud of
We bought Shannon's 2008 Saturn Outlook
"Seriously, the most easy and fast way to sell an unwanted car. I received an offer, within 24 hours I had a check for the agreed amount, and the car was picked up from my home. If you are expecting top dollar for your car because it runs you are better off selling on Craigslist because that is not how Clunker Junker works. It is all about demand! Receiving an offer is so painless might as well see what you can get."

Wendy Sold us her 2004 Chevy Suburban
"We highly recommend The Clunker Junker to anyone looking to get rid of an old car in less-than-stellar condition. After a minor issue submitting our car on the website, I contacted the owner and received a reply in less than 10 minutes. (And this was at 4:30 in the afternoon.) We had a satisfactory offer within half an hour, and were contacted later that evening to arrange for pick-up. Our car was gone and I had check in hand by lunchtime the next day."

Guaranteed Cash For Your Car
We put our reputation on the line to back you up
The Clunker Junker stands by our service 100%. If for any reason you do not receive payment from one of our car junkers near you, we will work closely and personally with you to resolve any payment or service issues. If payment from the buyer still cannot be arranged, The Clunker Junker will pay you cash for your car in the full amount accepted as part of our junk car removal service guarantee.
Please note that our service guarantee applies only to vehicles that have been successfully picked up and towed away with proper ownership documentation (e.g, title) provided. The Clunker Junker and our car junker partners reserve the right to retract on our offer at the time of pickup if the vehicle is not as described by the seller or if the seller changes or updates information after an offer has been accepted.
FAQs about selling your car for cash
Your questions, answered
Do I need a title to sell my vehicle?
It depends on a few different things like the location, age of your vehicle, and what other documentation you may have available. We can buy some cars without titles in some states, but you will usually need a photo ID that matches a valid registration and/or insurance card to prove ownership. Sometimes additional documents will need to be signed and notarized. We cannot purchase abandoned vehicles or vehicles that have active liens under any circumstances. We will also not pay for impound fees if they are required to release a vehicle.
Does the title need to be in my name?
Yes, to legally sell your vehicle you must be the legal owner. That means a title or registration in your name. Any titles that are "signed over" to you cannot be used until ownership is fully transferred into your name. This is a state law in all 50 states, and "title jumping" (selling a car without transferring ownership first), is technically a felony.
When can you pick up my vehicle?
The Clunker Junker makes every effort to be or work with the fastest and best junk car buyers in your area. Once we collect all the required information (and photos in some cases), we'll forward it to our carrier or buyer immediately and they will reach out to you to schedule an exact day and time for pickup. Our carriers usually respond within a few business hours but can sometimes take longer. Because The Clunker Junker does not directly handle scheduling, we cannot fully guarantee any specific time or date. With that said, however, most of our pickups happen within two business days and many even happen on the same day as submission.
