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

Hey there, I’m Eric from The Clunker Junker and I’ve recently taken a look at the average offers we make in Minnesota. In general, the going rate is about $481. Small cars, such as a Ford Fiesta or Honda Civic, tend to be on the lower end of the scale at roughly $433, while pickup trucks, such as a Chevrolet Silverado or Ford F-150, are more valuable with an average offer of $626. SUVs and crossovers, like a Toyota RAV4 or Honda CR-V, come in at around $539.

Our company, The Clunker Junker, has been busy these past few months, purchasing and subsequently paying out over 8582 vehicles, amounting to more than 4 Million dollars. Our most sought-after car in Minnesota was the Chevrolet Impala—a four-door sedan. Unfortunately, this model is prone to a variety of issues throughout its lifetime, such as transmission problems, stalling and a dramatic loss of power. This can make repairs quite expensive and difficult to manage. Selling it instead of trying to fix it is often the better option in this case.

It appears that car prices in Minnesota are remaining consistent and only fluctuating marginally by -1.9% a month. This is identical to the market we were seeing a year ago and I anticipate that this steadiness will continue for some time. If you’re considering selling your car, now is an ideal time given that the market is stable. I’ll be monitoring the status of the market and will let you know of any changes that may occur.

How to sign your Minnesota car title

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Minnesota 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. To start, find the section titled "Assignment by seller (transferor)" on the front of the title. This is where you'll want to sign. Never write or sign anything on the back of the title in licensed dealer sections.
  2. First, print (don't sign) your name on the front of the title, where it reads "Seller's printed name(s)".
    Always sign in pen on the seller line, and never sign in the dealer section.
  3. Next, sign the front of the title where indicated by "Seller's signature(s)".
    Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

How to get a duplicate Minnesota title

The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Minnesota title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Minnesota you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:

  1. Fill out the Minnesota Application for duplicate title or registration form.
  2. Or, fill out the Michigan Application for Vehicle Title form.
  3. Bring your duplicate title application to the DVS office or mail the application and payment to:
    Driver and Vehicle Services - Central Office 
    Town Square Building 
    445 Minnesota Street, Suite 187 
    Saint Paul, MN 55101-5187
  4. Please note that there may be a waiting period before a duplicate title can be issued and the cost is $8.25 plus an additional $10.00 filing fee.

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Minnesota

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Minnesota 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 Minnesota 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 Minnesota

  1. To have an abandoned vehicle removed from your private property, you must request your local law enforcement to dispatch a towing order for the abandoned vehicle.
  2. To apply for the title, you must first attempt to locate the last registered owner and/or lienholder for the vehicle. You may do this by using the 17-digit VIN number and doing a record search at your local DVS.
    Otherwise, the vehicle will be sold at public auction after (15) fifteen days since a notice has been delivered to the last registered owner of the vehicle.
Frequently Asked Questions

Common questions

Can you buy vehicles with no title in Minnesota?

Yes! While we do not guarantee that we can purchase every car, we have purchased many vehicles without title in MN. Our buyers generally require a registration or insurance card that matches a photo ID of the legal owner. Don’t be surprised if your offer is lower without title, as resale options are more limited for our buyers.

What if my title doesn’t look like the one pictured?

Minnesota often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Minnesota DVS.

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 DVS 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?

You will need to complete the online Report of Sale form within 10 days of selling your vehicle.
