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

Hello there! This is Eric Mitz from The Clunker Junker. I’ve been crunching some numbers from our recent transactions in Missouri, and I thought I’d share with you what I’ve discovered.

On average, we’ve been handing out approximately $494 for a range of vehicles in the regiion. Cars of a more compact nature tend to be slightly less than this average; however, at an average of $461, it’s still a fair amount. An excellent example of this is the sedan Chevrolet Impala; they seem to be incredibly popular in Missouri. As a sedan, the Chevrolet Impala has space limitations compared to larger vehicles but still provides adequate comfort and efficiency. The vehicle frequently demonstrates recurrent complications such as faulty transmission and electrical system failures. Repairing these issues can be quite a pickle to your wallet, and that’s where we come in. Offering a reasonable cash purchase can often make a lot more sense financially than pouring your resources into an ageing car.

Meanwhile, SUVs and crossovers are garnering our heftiest offers, clocking in at an average of around $561. For example, models such as the Ford Expedition carries much value due to its utility and spaciousness, making it a hit among Missouri residents. Pickup trucks aren’t far behind either, averaging at $554. Trucks like the Ford F150, designed for both practicality and performance, have been an attractive investment for us due to their durability and reigning popularity among a wide range of consumers.

In the recent past, my team and I have bought approximately 11,644 vehicles, adding up to a whopping total of over 6 million dollars in payouts! Now, that’s a lot of metal! The numbers tell us that Missourians love their Chevrolet Impalas. I can confidently say that we’re always ready to provide a fair cash offer for these cars, regardless of condition.

On a broader scale, I’ve noticed that market prices in Missouri are maintaining a steady hold. There has been minimal fluctuation, with a small monthly drop of just -1.6%. Looking back at the trends from last year, things seem quite comparable, and I’m anticipating these prices to sustain their poise for some time. With stability such as this, now is an excellent opportunity for you to sell your used car.

As I continue to navigate this industry, I’m committed to ensuring you’re updated with the most recent market trends and data. This is Eric from The Clunker Junker, your trusted expert in the cash for everything from cars to trucks and SUVs. Looking forward to helping you make your next vehicle selling decision, easy, profitable and worry-free.

How to sign your Missouri car title

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Missouri 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 the top of your Missouri title is a section that says "Assignment". This is the section you should sign and print. Make sure you don't put anything in the license dealer only sections!
  2. First sign the back of the title where indicated by "Signature of all seller(s)".
    Always sign in pen on the seller line, and never sign in the dealer section.
  3. Print (don't sign) your name on the back of the title, where it reads "Hand printed name(s) by seller(s)".
    Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you buy junk vehicles without a title in Missouri?

Yes, we can sometimes buy vehicles without the title. Vehicles are worth less if they don’t have a title, and we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to purchase every vehicle. Our buyers will at minimum require photo identification that matches your registration or insurance to complete the sale.

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

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

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 DoR 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?

Complete a notice of sale or transfer for your vehicle and return it to your local department of revenue office.
