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

Hello! Eric Mitz here, CEO and founder of The Clunker Junker. Let’s have a look at some of our recent transactions and trends in the Idaho area from the past 30 days in the world of used and junk cars.

Typically, we’ve been seeing an average payout of about $462 for various vehicles in the Idaho area. The spectrum varies based on the type of vehicle you have. Take small cars for example. These cozy little rides average around $347 on a recent count. Just last month, a 2005 Honda Civic, with a faulty transmission and high mileage was sold to us and its owner happily pocketed the average payout.

In contrast, our higher end payouts generally circle pickup trucks. On average, these heavy-duty vehicles fetch approximately $865 with us. Picture an old 2003 Ford F-150 with rusted bodywork and recurring brake issues. Instead of pouring money into repeated repairs, the owner decided to sell it to us, and walked away with a nice sum in their pocket.

For the SUV and crossover owners out there, your athletic road warriors are expected to secure around $516. As an example, we recently bought a 2008 Toyota RAV4 that had its fair share of wear and tear. Rather than spending a small fortune on the frequent fixes, the owner chose to sell it to us.

Since our start, we at The Clunker Junker have bought around 2416 vehicles and proudly paid out over 1 million dollars to satisfied customers. A notable favorite among the Idaho residents is the trusty pickup, the Ford F-150. Being a pickup truck, the Ford F-150 is a versatile workhorse that’s perfect for heavy-duty tasks. However, they often struggle with common problems such as ignition coil failure and spark plug issues. Instead of draining your wallet with never-ending repair costs, it’s often wiser to sell the truck for a chunk of cash.

Looking at the bigger picture of the used car market, it appears there’s a slight downward trend in prices in Idaho. We have noticed an approximately -5.2% decrease per month over the last year. This is likely due to the increase in new car inventories which tends to negatively influence used car prices. This makes it the perfect time to consider selling your car before the value decreases further.

Rest assured, I’ll keep my finger on the pulse of the market. I’ll keep you posted with the newest updates and trends. Till then, if you’re considering to sell, remember we’re here to give you the best possible deal for your used or junk car.

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Idaho

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Idaho 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 Idaho 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 Idaho

  1. If a vehicle has been abandoned on your property, you may contact your local law enforcement office and they will dispatch a towing company to remove the vehicle.
  2. To apply for ownership of the abandoned vehicle, you must first attempt to locate the legal owner of the vehicle using the 17-digit VIN number at your local DMV office.
    You must claim an exemption under the Driver Privacy Protection Act to receive this personal information. The fee for this service is $7.00.
  3. If the owner is found, you may request and begin applying for the title. If they do not have the title and do not wish to apply for one, they may sign a Power of Attorney to allow you to apply for the title.
    If the owner is unknown, you may wish to acquire an attorney to guide you through small claims court and to see if you may apply for a quiet title.
Frequently Asked Questions

Common questions from our Idaho customers

Can you buy vehicles in Idaho without a title?

Sorry, we probably won’t be able to buy your vehicle if you don’t have a valid title. However, we would be more than happy to help you through the process of obtaining a duplicate title through the Idaho DMV.

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

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

Fill out a notice of release of liability form within five days of the sale of your vehicle.
