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 Louisiana. He is also a data nerd with a finger on the pulse of the cash for cars industry and salvage vehicle values.
Hi there! My name is Eric from The Clunker Junker. We’ve recently been making some great offers in Louisiana and our average payouts are around $552. Small cars like a Honda Civic or a Chevrolet Spark tend to go for around $500 while pickups, such as a Ford F-150 or a Chevrolet Silverado, generally earn an average of $793. For something in the middle, SUVs and crossovers such as a Toyota Rav4 or a Honda CR-V are going for about $578.
At The Clunker Junker, we have recently acquired over 6,274 vehicles, and paid out more than 3 million dollars. Our best-selling car in Louisiana was the Nissan Altima, a mid-size sedan. Common problems with the Nissan Altima include transmission issues, electrical problems, and engine failure. These complications can be expensive to repair, so it’s often a better idea to just sell it for cash rather than putting more money into fixing it.
It looks like used car prices in Louisiana remain steady, changing by just 1.1% month to month. This is similar to the market conditions we saw this time last year, and I expect these prices to continue trending in the same direction for the foreseeable future. Now is a great opportunity to take advantage of this market stability and get the best possible value for your vehicle. I’ll be sure to keep you updated with any new developments!
How to sign your Louisiana car title
We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Louisiana 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 Louisiana title, you will want to sign and print on the back of the title in the section that says "Assignment of title by registered owner". Never write anything in the "re-assignment by licensed dealer" sections.
- First sign the back of the title where indicated by "Signature(s) of Seller(s)".
Always sign in pen on the seller line and never sign on the buyer or transferee line
- Print (don't sign) your name on the back of the title, where it reads "Printed Name(s) of Seller(s)".
Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.
How to get a duplicate Louisiana title
The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Louisiana title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Louisiana you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:
- Fill out the Louisiana vehicle application. Complete the "Duplicate Title Affidavit" section.
- Bring your duplicate title application to your local OMV office or mail your application and payment to:
Office of Motor Vehicles P.O. Box 64886 Baton Rouge, LA 70896
- The fee for a replacement Louisiana title is $18.50, plus an additional $8.00 handing fee.
How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Louisiana
Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Louisiana 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 Louisiana 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 Louisiana
- Attempt to locate the legal owner of the vehicle using the VIN 17-digit number.
- Contact your local law enforcement office to have them affix a (24) twenty-four hour notice of removal on the vehicle.
If the vehicle remains on your property for longer than (24) twenty-four hours, it may be towed and stored as law enforcement seeks out the legal owner.
- If the vehicle has remained unclaimed by the registered owner and/or lien holder for a period of more than (3) three months, it will be sold at auction or destroyed, determined by an appraisal.
If sold at auction, the new owner of the vehicle may apply for the title.
Do you buy cars in Louisiana without titles?
Sometimes, yes! Your vehicle will have to be older than 2006, and you’ll be asked for proof of ownership. This is generally a registration or insurance card that matches your photo ID. Offers without title are generally lower than if you had a valid title. We do not guarantee that we can buy every car in every city without titles.
What if my title doesn’t look like the one pictured?
Louisiana often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Louisiana OMV.
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 OMV 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?
