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

Greetings from Eric at The Clunker Junker! I’ve been reviewing our recent transactions in Indiana and it’s pretty interesting. On average, we’ve been paying fairly good rates for your vehicles, which hover around $491. Small cars, let’s say a Mini Cooper or Honda Fit, tend to fetch slightly less, with an average price of $445. On the brighter side, pickup trucks such as the Ford F-150 or Chevy Silverado, command a higher price, averaging around $566 in this region. SUVs and crossovers like the Dodge Durango or Subaru Outback, sit comfortably in the mid-range, with average rates of about $561.

Let me enlighten you with some more insights from The Clunker Junker. We’ve recently purchased approximately 12,075 vehicles! That’s a lot of metal, ehh? We dolled out more than $6 million for those vehicles. It’s curious to note that the most preferred vehicle in Indiana happens to be a sedan - the Chevrolet Impala to be specific. The Chevy Impala is no doubt a stylish sedan model, but it is purported to have common issues like power steering failure and faulty ignition switches. Sometimes, the cost of repairs might get out of hand, making it a wise choice to sell your car to us, rather than flushing cash down in mechanic bills.

As an experienced player in the “cash for cars” business, I’ve been keeping a keen eye on used car prices. Interestingly, the value of used cars in Indiana is demonstrating stability. There’s been a mere fluctuation of 0.8% month on month which indicates a steady market. This trend is reminiscent of the market scenario we had about a year back. Given this consistent pattern, I anticipate used car prices to maintain their stance for a while. So, if you’ve been contemplating whether or not to sell your car, this is an optimal time, as the market appears quite stable. Rest assured, I’ll stay on top of the market trends and keep you updated on the latest developments.
