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.

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.

Hey there, this is Eric from The Clunker Junker, curtailing the hassle of selling your used or junk car in Connecticut. Recently, we’ve analyzed our offering patterns in your state and here’s what our data reveals. Our typical payout for vehicles in Connecticut comes in at an approximate average of $665. When we break down the valuation by type, we find that compact cars receive a slightly lower offer, averaging out at $636. These might include models such as the Ford Fiesta or Toyota Yaris.

In contrast, SUVs and crossovers are often met with higher offers, specifically around the ballpark of $734. Vehicles like the Honda CRV or Chevrolet Equinox typically fall into this category. Slots between these two categories are pickup trucks, such as the Ford F-150 or Chevy Silverado, with an average payout of $686.

At The Clunker Junker, we’ve been actively engaged in buying around 7885 vehicles over the last few weeks, disbursing over 5 million dollars in the process. Interestingly, the Honda Accord has emerged as the most sought-after model in Connecticut. This midsize sedan, known for its spacious interior and smooth handling, seems to be a favorite. But like every machine, it has some common issues, such as brake wear or problems with the transmission. Sometimes, the cost of fixing these issues could lean towards being overly expensive rather than resourceful, tipping the scales towards selling it off as a more suitable option.

In my 12 years of experience in the cash-for-cars industry, I’ve learned that timing is everything when selling your car. Currently, used car prices in Connecticut present an optimal ground for sellers. Yes, it’s true that prices have only seen a very slight, nearly negligible dip by -1.9% each month, but rest assured, this is something we’d categorize as a ‘stable market’. This means that the present pricing environment closely resembles the one from around a year ago, solidifying my belief that the market will continue in the same vein for a little while longer. Therefore, if you’ve been pondering on selling your car, now’s the most opportune moment. As we journey together in this sector, I will make sure to consistently update you with the latest market leads and trends, helping you make the most informed decisions for your vehicle.

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.

    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.
