Eric Mitz

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 Tempe, AZ. He is also a data nerd with a finger on the pulse of the cash for cars industry and salvage vehicle values.

Hello there, I’m Eric Mitz from The Clunker Junker, where we make it easy for you to turn your used or junk car into cash! Having been in this business for more than 12 years, I’d like to share some insights about our recent transactions in the Tempe, Arizona area. On the whole, the average price we’ve paid lately for vehicles in this area has been around $752.

Take for instance a compact car, such as a Honda Civic, which has a slightly lower average payout of around $693. These cars are popular due to their fuel efficiency and make perfect sense to sell to us, especially if the cost of repairs outweighs the vehicle’s current value. On the other end of the scale, pickup trucks like the Ford F-150 are edging out at a higher offer, with the average coming in around $1202. These trucks, known for being workhorses, can start needing extensive repairs as they age making them perfect candidates for a quick sell to us.

Then, looking at the SUV and crossover segment, like the Chevrolet Equinox, these fell in the middle, with an average selling price of about $819. Given their popular demand, it’s a good idea to cash in your used SUV or crossover now, especially if the cost of upkeep has become too burdensome.

In all, during the previous 30 day period, we bought roughly 386 vehicles, which totaled up to paying out over $300,000. It’s interesting to note here that the Nissan Altima, a mid-size sedan, was the most popular vehicle we encountered from sellers in Tempe. The Nissan Altima, while generally reliable, does have common issues such as problems with the CVT transmission or excessive oil consumption that can become costly to fix. So, trading this vehicle in sooner rather than later, before these repairs are needed, might be a smart choice.

Now, onto market trends, we’ve noticed prices have remained steady in Tempe, fluctuating only by a marginal 1.3% each month. It’s almost the same scenario as a year back with no radical changes to the prices. Therefore, right now could be an opportune time to let go of your car, with the market being stable. Rest assured, I’ll keep my finger on the pulse of the market, so as to best inform you with the latest trends in the cash for cars industry. Stay tuned!

    The Clunker Junker is the Best!! Filled out for an online quote for a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica, they offered more than anyone else, came the next morning, paid what they offered and picked up the car. Would definitely use them again!

FAQs about selling your car in Tempe, AZ

Your questions, answered

Do I need a title to sell my vehicle?

Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Tempe, AZ. Sorry about this! Arizona has very strict laws around vehicle ownership and we are at the mercy of following those regulations. You would need to obtain a replacement or duplicate title from your local DMV (see below). Once you have your title in hand we'll be happy to buy your junk car!

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.

Does my vehicle need a catalytic converter?

Stolen catalytic converters are an increasingly common problem. The converter is not technically required, but your offer may change significantly if it is missing or has been replaced with an aftermarket part. All offers are subject to change when the converter is missing or replaced with aftermarket.
