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 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, I’m Eric Mitz, the guy who steers the ship here at The Clunker Junker! I thought I’d flick through the latest data on offers we’ve made in Delaware and, you might be interested in what’s been going on. Taking a look at our figures for the past month, we’ve been shelling out roughly $618 on average for cars in The Diamond State. If we start slicing that data a bit, we find smaller cars are fetching a mean price of about $586.

We have different breeds of vehicles coming our way, like the compact Hyundai Accent, which might roll in with issues ranging from transmission snags to engine complexities. Often, these problems can be a little pricey to sort, which is why many folks opt to sell off these vehicles to us, as opposed to fix.

Let’s jump to the other end of the spectrum with pickup trucks. Those muscular machines have snagged the top spot in our offers, tallying up to roughly $907 on average. For instance, the robust Ford F150 with its intermittent electrical or brake line troubles is a popular choice. As the repair bills add up, many truck owners figure that trading these heavy-duty vehicles in for cash is more a rational move.

Sandwiched between cars and trucks, SUVs and crossovers pull in a decent figure too, averaging around $640. To give you an idea, the mid-sized Chevrolet Equinox is a frequent visitor. Known for its faulty ignition or pesky oil leak, a lot of folks reckon that trading in this problematic SUV saves them the headache of dealing with repairs.

Now to brag a bit: we’ve recently added an impressive 2289 vehicles to The Clunker Junker family! That’s not all, the cherry on the cake being we’ve paid out a whopping over a million dollars! The star of Delaware though, has to be the Nissan Altima, a stylish sedan. But hey, even stars have flaws: The Altima often boasts common issues like a failing transmission or CVT. When repair costs start nearing the car’s value, selling it to us appears to be a wise move for many.

On the market front, prices are holding pretty much steady in Delaware, showing just a slight downtick of -1.5% each month. It feels like déjà vu, as we were virtually at the same place a year ago. I anticipate this stable trend to continue for a bit. As such, now seems an opportune time to offload your car and cash in while the market remains steady. Rest assured, I’ll have my eyes glued on the market metrics to keep you updated on the latest trends!
