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

Greetings, I’m Eric Mitz, the CEO and founder of The Clunker Junker. I’ve spent over a decade in the cash for cars industry, and today I wanted to share some insights on our recent transactions in Kansas. Currently, the average offer we are making for vehicles in the region is around $451. This fluctuates based on the vehicle type, so let’s dig a little deeper.

Compact car models, taking into account the smaller size and lower demand, are averaging a somewhat lower rate of approximately $385. As an illustration, consider the Honda Civic - a reliable and efficient compact car. It, however, faces numerous common problems such as transmission failure and brake issues. As the expenses to rectify these issues increase, selling these cars makes more financial sense than fixing them.

Moving up in size, pickup trucks are fetching the highest offers from us, with an average price of about $547. The Ford F-150, a staple in the pickup truck category, has seen an especially high demand. That being said, the majority of these trucks often come with maintenance issues such as engine problems and brake system malfunctions. The costs of repairs can mount quickly—making selling a practical option.

Now, let’s discuss SUVs and crossovers. Their average price is nearly neck-and-neck with pickup trucks, falling slightly behind at $542. Let’s consider the Jeep Grand Cherokee as an instance; this robust SUV often falls prey to issues with their electrical systems and engine cooling systems. These repair costs can quickly escalate, making it wise to consider selling to a reputable business like us.

Reflecting on the recent business, we’ve purchased around 4633 vehicles and paid out more than 2 million dollars over the last 30 days! Curiously, the most popular vehicle among Kansans during this period was the Chevrolet Impala, a comfortable and spacious sedan. Despite its solid build and popularity, this car is regularly faced with power steering failure and problems with the ignition switch. Consequently, selling it might prove more beneficial than holding on to it with increasing maintenance costs.

Notably, we’ve observed a minimal monthly price change of just 1.4% in Kansas. The market standing this year aligns with where we found ourselves a year ago. Predicting the upcoming market trends, I foresee these prices maintaining their stability for some time yet. So, if you’re considering selling your car, seize this opportunity while the market remains steady. Rest assured, I’ll keep monitoring market trends and ensure to keep you posted with the latest updates.
