How Much Is My Junk Car Worth In Louisiana, And Why?

Your car in the Sportsman’s Paradise State will be worth different amounts of money depending on its condition.

Parts cars

A bayou dwelling clunker that is still drivable will net you a fair amount of money. Even if it’s fully rusted, the spare parts can be useful. We’ll hand you between $100 and $300 for these cars.

Clunkers and Junkers

True junker cars won’t even run. They’ll still be useful to sell for scrap metal, though. You might not get that much cash, but you probably got a lot of mileage out of the car. We typically pay out the going rate for scrap metal, minus towing fees for the most broken down junkers.

Cars that aren’t really

Cars that are still looking decent and in working order can be taken off your hands too. We’ll even pay you up to $15,000 if the car is nearly ready for resale. You can use your cash payment to buy a new ride!

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.

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.

    "The car runs but has lost oil pressure and is blowing smoke. The transmission was rebuilt six months ago. The body, interior and glass are in excellent condition. There's very minor damage to the right front corner of the bumper, and the headlight and turn light are undamaged and working. It has alloy wheels and all-terrain tires with a good spare tire. The car was my daily driver until yesterday. The interior is complete, and nothing is missing. "
