How much can I sell my junk car for in Alaska?
Even if your vehicle is in a terrible condition we’ll still be willing to buy your junks cars for cash in The Last Frontier State and if there are still some valuable parts it might be worth far more than you think:
Cars beyond repair
For cars that are mostly rusted out with no valuable parts in them we typically pay between $25 and $75. These vehicles have little value and are therefore priced based on how much they weigh. We’ll even pay you in cash for junk cars with no title whenever possible.
Vehicles with usable parts
You might classify your vehicle as a junk car, but if it’s still got usable parts it’s valuable to us. In this case we’ll often pay you far more than you’d get for the scrap metal value because some of the parts can often be reused or sold.
Used cars that are still drivable
While we specialize in buying junk cars, we also buy vehicles which are still trucking along even if they are on their last legs. For these vehicles we can pay up to $5,000 meaning that you might be letting a gold mine gather dust in your garage!
How to sign your Alaska car title
We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Alaska 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".
- Be sure you are using the "Assignment of vehicle title by owner" section on the top of the back side of the title. Do not sign or print in the dealer only sections!
- Sign your name on the back of the title where it says "Seller (signature)"
Always sign in pen on the seller line and never sign in the dealer section.
- Print (don't sign) your name on the back of the title where it says "Seller (name)" Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.
- You will need to fill out the notice of vehicle sale transfer. This should be attached to the bottom of your title, but you can also find Form 820 here.
How to get a duplicate Alaska title
The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Alaska title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Alaska you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:
- Fill out the Alaska Application for Replacement Title form #809. This document must be notarized.
- Either bring your duplicate title application to your local Alaska DMV, or mail your application to the AK division of motor vehicles at:
The application should have the following information:
State of Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles ATTN: CORRESPONDENCE 1300 W. Benson Blvd Anchorage, AK 99503
Your name (printed) Complete/Correct Serial Number (VIN) Description of the item that you need the title for Signature (Must be notarized)

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Alaska

Frequently Asked Questions in Alaska
Can you buy my junk car without a title in Alaska?
No, unfortunately we cannot purchase vehicles in Alaska unless you have a valid title in hand. However, the legal owner of the vehicle should be able to easily obtain a duplicate through your local DMV. See instructions for a duplicate title above.
What if my title doesn’t look like the one pictured?
Alaska often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Alaska DMV. In general you want to sign and print in the assignment of title section (not dealer!) on the signature of seller and printed name of seller lines.
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.

"The vehicle has overheated, it started smoking, and it quit accelerating. I presume that the engine is blown. It started and ran after being towed home, but the oil cap must have blown off or something, because it's long gone."
"The front end strut and axle need to be replaced, and I don't have the cash to replace it. I am in need of transportation to get to and from work, so I need the cash. I've replaced the radiator, alternator, brakes, serpentine belt and hoses. Also, the battery is brand new."
"The vehicle has a rebuilt engine that I did for a guy who didn't pay. The engine and transmission are good with 0 miles. The vehicle also has all new internal parts. I want to junk them together or I can separate the car and the motor and transmission. "
"The vehicle needs a tune up, brakes, and someone needs to disable a security cut off issue when you put the key in the ignition. It sometimes doesn't recognize the chip in the key. We bought a new vehicle, and that is why we are junking this one for some cash."
"The water leaked in through the backed up water drains near the sunroof and damaged the wiring harness under the floorboards when it collected there. This ruined the wiring harness and the transmission."
"I haven't used the car in two years, and I need to get it out of my driveway. It needs some work (the brakes sounds like they have rusted from sitting), and I don't want to put any cash into it."
