Get cash for your junk car in Connecticut today!

At The Clunker Junker, we pay top dollar for cars in Connecticut and pick them up from you free of charge, paying you in cash on the spot. Why would you choose us, especially when you look at how complex it is to sell to our competition? The Constitution State is one of the most important in the history of America, having been the location where many decisions were made regarding the creation of the United States. With all of this history and talented locals, it’s shocking that doing something as simple as selling a junk car should be so difficult.

You’ll need to drive up and down Route 15 looking for a scrap car buyer between Stamford and Hartford, haggle for a realistic price and make the sale. You might as well mow their lawn while you’re there! Selling to a buyer is a hassle, which is why if you want to sell your junk car in Connecticut, you should sell to the Clunker Junker. Not only do we pay cash for cars in Connecticut, but we’ll also tow them away!

Connecticut also has a rich history with automobiles. In fact, the very first automobile law was passed in Connecticut in 1901 limiting the maximum speed of vehicles to 12mph! A lot has changed since then. Cars have gotten bigger, faster, and more reliable. Even still, sometimes it’s just time to sell your car and get something new with the latest technology, and maybe a fresh warranty! Before you trade in that vehicle to the dealer, give The Clunker Junker a call, we may be able to offer more than trade in!

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 Connecticut. 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 from The Clunker Junker. We recently took a look at the offers we are providing in Connecticut and saw that the average amount is about $660. This amount is slightly less for smaller vehicles like a compact car, which averages out to around $638. Our highest offers are for SUVs and crossovers, which had an average of $714. Pickup trucks fall somewhere in the middle at a price of $692. For example, a Ford Fiesta might get around $638 while a Jeep Grand Cherokee could get around $714 and a Chevrolet Silverado would get an estimated $692.

Here at The Clunker Junker, we have recently purchased around 7674 vehicles and paid out over 5 Million dollars! Our most popular vehicle in Connecticut was the Honda Accord, a 4-door sedan. Common problems that are typically encountered with a Honda Accord include engine misfires, faulty oxygen sensors, and spark plug issues. For these types of repairs, it is often more cost effective to sell the car instead of investing in repairs due to the fact that they can become expensive to fix.

It looks like used car prices in Connecticut have been steady, only increasing or decreasing by a small amount of 1.7% each month. We are in a similar situation to what we were experiencing a year ago, so these prices should remain relatively the same for the foreseeable future. Now is a great opportunity for those looking to sell their car since the market is stable. I’ll keep an eye on it and let you know if there are any drastic changes in the pricing!

How to sign your Connecticut car title

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Connecticut 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 "Transfer by owner" section on the top of the back side of the title. Do not sign or print in the Re-assignment by licensed dealer sections!
  2. First sign the back of the title where indicated by "Signature(s) of Seller(s)" (see image).
    Always sign in pen on the seller line, and never sign in the dealer section.
  3. Print (don't sign) your name on the back of the title, where it reads "Printed Name of Seller(s)". Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

How to get a duplicate Connecticut title

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

  1. Request the Connecticut Request for Duplicate Certificate of Title Application. Fill out the form when it arrives in the mail.
  2. A lien release must accompany the application if a lien was listed on the original title.
  3. Bring your duplicate title application to your local DMV or mail your application to the CT division of motor vehicles at:
      State of Connecticut
      Department of Motor Vehicles
      Attn: Title Unit
      60 State Street
      Wethersfield, CT  06161
  4. The fee for a replacement Connecticut title is $25.00. Requests through mail may take as long as 90 days.

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Connecticut

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Connecticut 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 Connecticut 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 Connecticut

  1. Attempt to locate the legal owner of the vehicle using the VIN 17-digit number.
  2. The vehicle can be towed away privately.
  3. You cannot apply for a title to an abandoned vehicle, however you may attempt to purchase it from the tower if the registered owner and/or lienholder release interest. The tower must complete the Affidavit of Compliance and provide an Abandoned Motor Vehicle Sale Notification (form H-110) to the new owner.
Frequently Asked Questions

Additional information about selling your car in Connecticut

Are you able to buy my car without the title in Connecticut?

Unfortunately not. All of our buyers in Connecticut require that the vehicle has a valid title. However, the legal owner should be able to easily obtain a duplicate title from your local DMV. Let us know if we can help you with this in any way.

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

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

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 DMV 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 DMV that you have sold the vehicle. You can contact them with any additional questions or concerns about the transfer of your title.
