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.

Hello, Eric here from The Clunker Junker. I’ve just been reviewing our numbers over the last 30 days for our cash for cars program in Louisiana, so allow me to share some of the insights with you. Our average payout for vehicles in this region has been approximately $554. For compact vehicles, like the Ford Fiesta or Honda Fit, the average value is a tad lower, around $486. However, larger vehicles such as pickup trucks, for instance, the Ford F150 or Chevrolet Silverado, are fetching higher prices with an average payout of about $838. Midsize vehicles such as SUVs and crossovers, think of vehicles like the Toyota RAV4 or the Honda CR-V, are well-represented with an average price of about $614.

During the past 30 days at The Clunker Junker, we’ve processed about 6,196 vehicles and paid out a substantial total of over $3 million! The most frequently traded-in vehicle that we’ve been seeing from Louisiana is the Nissan Altima, a comfortable midsize sedan. Although it’s known for its smooth ride and stylish interior, there are some common issues with Altimas. These typically include transmission problems, worn-out brakes, and oil leaks. Complications like these can sometimes cost more to repair than the value of the car itself. So, selling your Altima to us might be your best move, particularly when you can get a fair cash deal without any hassles.

From my expertise in the cash for cars industry, I’ve observed that the prices in Louisiana have been relatively steady, fluctuating only about 1.6% per month recently. This might remind you of the situation a year ago when prices were also very stable. If industry patterns hold true, these stable prices are likely to continue for a while. Therefore, it’s quite a favorable time to offload your used or junk vehicle while the market is in equilibrium. Rest assured, I’ll continue to keep a close eye on market trends and keep you informed about the opportune times for selling your vehicles.

How to sign your Louisiana car title

Required: The state of Louisiana requires that all titles are signed in front of a notary public!

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".

  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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:

  1. Fill out the Louisiana vehicle application. Complete the "Duplicate Title Affidavit" section.
  2. 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  
  3. 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

  1. Attempt to locate the legal owner of the vehicle using the VIN 17-digit number.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
Frequently Asked Questions

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?

Fill out the Notice of Vehicle transfer online form.
