Eric's Expert Take

Eric is our founder and CEO and has nearly 15 years of experience buying and selling used and junk cars in the state of Alabama. He is also a data nerd with a finger on the pulse of the cash for cars industry and salvage vehicle values.

Hi, I’m Eric with The Clunker Junker. We’ve recently reviewed our offers in Alabama and the average comes to around $404. Low end vehicles, such as the Honda Civic, typically have an offer of around $377. Pickup trucks, such as the Ford F-150, have the highest offers at approximately $490. In the middle range, SUVs and crossovers like the Honda CR-V have an average offer of $464.

Recently, The Clunker Junker has purchased an impressive 7440 vehicles and paid out a grand total of over $3,000,000! The most sought after vehicle in Alabama was the Nissan Altima, a sedan. The Nissan Altima is known to have some common issues that can be costly to fix, such as transmission problems or coolant system issues. Though owning such a dependable vehicle is a great feat, it would be more beneficial to sell the car than try to fix it.

It appears that the Alabama car market has been stable for the past year, with prices only fluctuating by a relatively small 2.1% every month. This steadiness in prices means that now is an ideal moment to sell your car since the market is unlikely to drastically shift anytime soon. I will continue to monitor the market and keep you informed of any changes that may be coming down the line.

How to sign your Alabama car title

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Alabama title when you are selling your vehicle. If there are multiple owners listed on the title, they must all sign the title unless the names are separated with "OR".

  1. Be sure you are using the "Assignment of title by registered owner" section on the top of the back side of the title. Do not sign or print in the dealer only sections!
  2. Sign the back of the title where it says Signature(s) of Seller(s)
    Always sign in pen on the seller line and never sign in the dealer section.
  3. Print your name on the back of the title where it says Printed Name(s) of seller
    Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

How to get a duplicate Alabama title

The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Alabama title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Alabama you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:

  1. Fill out the Alabama Application for Replacement Title form.
  2. Either bring your duplicate title application to your local Alabama DPS, or Mail your application to the AL division of motor vehicles at:
    Alabama Department of Revenue
    Motor Vehicle Division - Title section
    P.O. Box 327640
    Montgomery, AL 36132-7640
  3. The fee for a replacement Alabama title is $15.00 and usually takes between 10 and 15 business days from the time payment is processed.

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Alabama

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Alabama can be a difficult process. Unfortunately, you cannot just sell any junk car that ends up on your property if you do not own it. You'll need to follow the Alabama abandoned vehicle removal procedures. We have given a general overview of what that entails below.

You can read more about selling an abandoned vehicle in Alabama

  1. Attempt to locate the legal owner of the vehicle using the VIN 17-digit number.
    The person or entity in possession of the motor vehicle must send a notice of possession to the owner and/or lienholder on record via certified mail. You may also contact your local law enforcement office.
  2. An abandoned vehicle must be declared to the Department of Revenue (DOR) through their online portal.
  3. After submission, there is a (45) calendar day hold during which the last registered owner and/or lienholder may claim the vehicle.
  4. If there is no response, the vehicle is held for auction in the county it was last registered. After (35) thirty-five calendar days from the notice of public auction, the vehicle will be available for sale through their online portal.
  5. At the time of sale, an Abandoned Vehicle Bill of Sale will be given to use in applying for the vehicle’s title.
Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions in Alabama

Can you buy my car without a title in Alabama?

It depends. We can sometimes purchase cars and trucks in Alabama without a title if they are older than 2004. You will also need to be the legal owner of the vehicle and be able to provide a valid registration or insurance card that matches your photo ID. Also note that this is ultimately up to our third party buyers, and they always reserve the right to deny any vehicle for any reason, including documentation issues.

What if my title doesn’t look like the one pictured?

Alabama often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Alabama DOR.

Do I need to turn in my license plates?

Yes, unless you are transferring the plates to a new vehicle. You can return the plates to your local county title and registration office.

What should I do about my auto insurance?

You will need to notify your auto insurance company that you have sold the vehicle, so they can either cancel your policy if the vehicle was sold, or transfer/renew the policy on your new vehicle.

Is there anything else I need to do?

You may need to notify your local DPS that you have sold the vehicle. You can contact them with any additional questions or concerns about the transfer of your title.
