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

Hello there, Eric from The Clunker Junker here! I’ve been sifting through our latest data from Delaware and I thought you’d be interested in what I’ve found. We’re offering pretty competitive prices - on average about $597 for local vehicles. Naturally, the type of car plays a role in the offer. For example, smaller cars such as a Toyota Corolla or a Honda Civic are coming in a tad lower at approximately $568. However, if you happen to possess a pickup truck like a Ford F-150, you’re looking at more; around a sweet $788 on average. SUVs and crossovers, think Jeep Grand Cherokee or a Honda CR-V, hover in the middle, averaging at a comfortable $635.

Jumping right into some more interesting statistics, the tally of vehicles we’ve recently purchased tops out at around 2,303. This means we’ve pumped more than a million dollars right back into your pockets! Our star player in Delaware, you ask? That would be the Nissan Altima - a well-loved family sedan. Yet, the Nissan Altima has run into a fair share of common issues such as faulty transmissions and failing power steering pumps over the years. It’s these kinds of expensive repairs which make selling to us a smart move, rather than pouring money into the fix-up.

In terms of market trends, it appears that used car prices in Delaware have held their ground quite well. The marginal monthly variation of 0.7% suggests a firm market, similar to where we were a year ago. These stable conditions present an ideal window of opportunity if you’re considering selling your car. It’s definitely a seller’s market and is likely to stick around, so don’t rush. As your cash for cars aficionado, I’ll be here keeping a close watch on any market shifts and will bring you the latest intel. So, stay tuned!

Frequently Asked Questions

Additional information about selling your car in Delaware

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

Unfortunately not. All of our buyers in Delaware 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?

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