How Much Can I Sell My Junk Car For In Idaho?

From Shoshone Falls to the Bruneau Dunes, Idaho is filled with natural beauty. But just because we’re The Gem State doesn’t mean your car has to be a gem. Even a car with extensive damage can still sell for a pretty great price. What kind of vehicle do you want to sell?

My Car is in Terrible Condition

We buy cars which don’t run, can’t move and are just generally in terrible shape. Most of the value of these cars is from their raw materials. We typically pay between $35 and $125 for these types of cars, depending on their size and weight.

My Car is in Okay Condition

These cars aren’t in great shape, but they’re not total junkers, either. Instead of selling these cars for scrap at an Idaho auto salvage yard, we part them out. As a result, we can offer more money to you. Depending on the specific usable parts, we can usually pay a few hundred dollars or more for cars in okay-but-not-great condition.

My Car is in Good or Great Condition

We buy more than just clunkers and junkers. If you’re looking to sell any type of vehicle, check out our offer. Many times we’ll pay you more than an auto salvage yard or dealership. Plus, we’re often the fastest way to sell any car in Idaho.

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.

How to sign your Idaho car title

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Idaho 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".

    Always sign in pen on the seller line and never sign in the dealer section.

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.

    "The vehicle has a new starter, alternator CD-player, radio, tinted windows, new seat covers and brakes. I bought a good, used set of tires and can provide a set of running boards."

  • Carey's 2000 Hyundai Elantra

    "The engine light was on, but it didn't pass emissions check. I got a new vehicle, and the Elantra has been sitting in our driveway for years. We thought we might fix it one day, but we never did. We're moving now and just want to junk it for some cash. The battery is dead."

  • Roman's 2000 Kia Sephia

    "Getting rid of it because the transmission went out, and it's about $400 just for the cheapest part. I don't consider it worth putting more money into it. New front CV axles just put in before the transmission went."

  • Jen's 1998 Chrysler Sebring
    1998 Chrysler Sebring

    "The engine needs some work. The previous owner tried to take some parts off of it, and it looks like they put them back in the wrong order. To my knowledge, the parts are all there for the engine, but they're not installed correctly. The vehicle does not currently start as a result of that. The tires are inflated. There's some damage to the canvas top around the edges. There's a small area of damage on the rear bumper, but it's purely cosmetic. We purchased the vehicle from a friend to help him out with the intention of fixing it up for ourselves so that we could have two running vehicles, but we simply do not have the time between our jobs. We are junking it because we have another vehicle and could use the cash."

  • Ashley's 2000 Volvo V70

    "I do not have the key. I lost it. I bought the car a month ago for less than $1,000. The car overheated but still turned on, but my keys are now lost, and I need to junk the car for the cash. I don't want to put any cash into this car. "

  • Zac's 1994 Ford Explorer

    "I recently had $2,000 worth of work put into the vehicle. It has almost new $600 all-weather tires and a decent aftermarket stereo. I just can't afford to drive it, and I have to get it off of my friend's property. One rear taillight and blinker need to be replaced."
