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

Hello there, I’m Eric Mitz, founder and CEO of The Clunker Junker. Having been in the cash-for-cars industry for over 12 years, I have a unique insight into the local trends in Louisiana. In the last month, we’ve made a generous amount of attractive offers for a variety of vehicles, amounting to an average payout of approximately $556.

Small compact cars, for instance, models akin to a Hyundai Accent, have been fetching closer to $480. There’s always a demand for these types of cars due to their fuel efficiency and city-friendly size.

On the other hand, pickup trucks like the Ford F-150, known for their durability and utility, have seen our highest offers, raking in around $795 on average. This likely stems from the significant demand for trucks given their versatility, particularly in industrious regions.

SUVs and crossovers, something along the lines of a Honda CR-V, have been sitting in the middle ground, with an average offer of $667. These vehicles often offer the best of both worlds, combining the practicality of a passenger car with the strength of a pickup truck, making them quite favorable.

Over the recent period, we’ve bought approximately 6087 vehicles, disbursing an impressive sum exceeding $3 million from our pocket to yours! The most commonly traded vehicle in Louisiana has been the Nissan Altima, a mid-sized sedan. It’s generally noted for common issues with its continuous variable transmission, which can be pretty costly to fix. Thus, instead of digging a hole in your pocket to repair it, selling it off to us for an attractive price might be a smart decision.

What’s encouraging is that the prices in the local auto industry have been displaying stability, with a slight monthly change of -0.8%. This is almost identical to what we observed a year ago, so I predict this pattern will likely persist for the coming time. Given the steady market conditions, now might be an ideal time to unlock the value held by your aged or unused vehicle.

As an expert in automotive trends, I’ll continue to monitor the industry and keep you posted on the latest changes. After all, The Clunker Junker is committed to getting you the best deal possible!

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.
