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

Hello there, it’s Eric Mitz, CEO and founder of The Clunker Junker. Let’s take a dive into our recent performance in beautiful Montana, a state known not only for its stunning landscapes but also for its diverse range of vehicles.

Over the past month, we’ve been offering an average of $459 for vehicles in the area. This price varies depending on the type of vehicle involved. For instance, for compact cars like the Honda Civic or the Toyota Corolla, which are often well-used and may have higher mileage, we’re seeing an average offer of around $267. These smaller cars are usually less costly and age more quickly, which results in a lower resale price.

However, on the higher side, pickup trucks are fairing considerably better. With models such as the Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado, our offers averaged around an impressive $772. The inherent sturdiness of these trucks, coupled with their day-to-deal utility, contribute to their higher market value.

As for SUVs and crossovers, including popular models like the Honda CR-V or Ford Explorer, they have a mid-range market value, averaging out at $593 in Montana.

During this past month, we’ve been pretty busy here at The Clunker Junker. We’ve facilitated the purchase of around 1,377 vehicles, totaling a payout of over a whopping 600 thousand dollars! Our most sought-after vehicle in Montana was the Ford F-150, which is a versatile and robust pickup truck. However, it’s worth noting that the F-150 often experiences potential issues such as brake failure and powertrain problems. In many cases, it can be more beneficial to sell the vehicle than to sink money into costly repairs.

Looking at the bigger picture, we’ve noticed a slight contraction in the local market with prices on a downward trend, decreasing by approximately 3.1% per month over the last year. This trend is likely tied to the boom in new car inventories, which often reverberates negatively in the used car market. Therefore, if you’ve been contemplating selling, now could be a prime opportunity before prices potentially spiral downwards further.

As always, I’ll be keeping my finger on the pulse of the market, and I’ll make sure to provide updates with the latest trends. With over 12 years of expertise in the cash for cars industry, you can trump my judgment and guidance when it comes to buying and selling used or junk cars.

How to sign your Montana car title

Required: The state of Montana 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 Montana 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. You'll want to sign and notarize the front of your Montana title in the section that says "Seller completes in ink". Don't put anything in the buyer section or the dealer sections on the back.
  2. First sign the front of the title where indicated by "Signature of owner or agent owner". This needs to be done in front of a legal notary.
    Always sign in pen on the seller line, and never sign in the dealer section.
  3. Print (don't sign) your name on the front of the title, where it reads "Printed name".
    Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.
  4. Make sure your notary signs and stamps the title in the notary section.
