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 Florida. 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 behind The Clunker Junker. Given my 12-years experience in the cash-for-cars industry, I like to keep my eye on market trends so I can offer you the best deals possible. Over the past month, I’ve been particularly attentive to our dealings in the vibrant state of Florida. Here’s what I’ve found so far.
On average, we’ve been paying approximately $663 for vehicles in the Sunshine State. Compact cars, such as the popular Toyota Corolla, have been fetching slightly less averaging about $637. Despite being smaller in size, these cars serve as excellent workhorses and are perfect for city dwellers who prioritize fuel efficiency and maneuverability.
Moving up in size and price, we have crossovers and SUVs like the Kia Soul and Chevrolet Suburban. These capacious vehicles accommodate more passengers and luggage, making them perfect for family trips. For these categories, we’ve been offering an average price of $718—a competitive figure given their increased utility.
On the upper end of the price spectrum, we have pickup trucks, securing hefty average payouts of around $754. These machines, like the Ford F-150, are a blend of power, durability and functionality, making them ideal for heavy-duty tasks.
Now, pulling from our recent transactions, we’ve found that the Nissan Altima—a mid-size sedan—has been the favourite among Floridians. Known for its comfort and fuel efficiency, the Altima unfortunately also carries a reputation for issues with its Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). These repairs can cost upwards of $3000, making many owners opt to sell instead of pouring money into fixes. It’s decisions like these where The Clunker Junker jumps in with an easy and lucrative solution!
Over the last 30 days, we’ve proudly added roughly 26,912 vehicles to our growing inventory, amounting to payouts exceeding the impressive $20 Million mark! With vehicle prices in Florida remaining stable, with a minor fluctuation of 0.5% each month, it seems the market is quite consistent. We’re even finding ourselves in a similar position to where we were this time last year. As a result, I firmly believe that now is an excellent time to sell your car while the market remains steady.
Rest assured, my team and I are constantly keeping tabs on the market, and we’ll be sure to provide you with the latest trends and insights. Trust in The Clunker Junker to always keep your best interests at heart! Until next time, drive safe.
How to sign your Florida car title
We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Florida 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".
- On a Florida title, the seller needs to sign on the front in the section that says Transfer of Title By Seller. Make sure you don't sign in the dealer only sections on the back!
- First sign your name on the front of the title where it reads "Seller Name (sign here)"
Always sign in pen on the seller line and never sign in the dealer section.
- Next, print your name on the front of the title where it reads "Seller Name (print here)" Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.
How to get a duplicate Florida title
The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Florida title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Florida you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:
- Fill out the Application for duplicate or lost title form (HSMV 82101).
- Bring your duplicate title application to your local county tax collector office or mail your application to your local county tax collector office.
- The fee for a replacement Florida title is $75.25 for electronic titles or $77.25 for a physically hard copy, which you will need to transfer ownership. Rush titles through mail are $82.25

Frequently asked questions about car sales in Florida
Can you buy cars in Florida if I don’t have my title?
Yes, in many cases! However, you will need to prove that you are the legal owner by providing photo identification that matches the name on your current registration. Note that not all buyers in Florida are willing to buy cars without a title, and your offer may be significantly lower without one.
What if my title doesn’t look like the one pictured?
Florida often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Florida 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 after I sell my car?
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.
