New Mexico junk car removal services like The Clunker Junker can help keep your front yard looking clean and tidy in the Land of Enchantment, while also putting cash in your hand. And it only takes three easy steps to get cash for cars in New Mexico:

  1. 1. Tell us what you know about your junk car
    In order to sell your junk car in New Mexico, you’ll need to know a few things about your old junker before it can be towed away. First, the basics: tell us the exact year, make, and model of the car you wish to junk. This clarification will give us a general idea on how much we can offer you before we get to the nitty-gritty.Even if your ride isn’t exactly road-ready, there’s no need to worry: we still pay top dollar for junk cars in New Mexico.
  2. 2. Accept our cash offer
    Once the details are entered our software will generate an instant offer for you in most cases. If you like the offer we’re giving you, just click “Accept.” After that, we’ll go about the business of connecting you with our junk car removal specialists in New Mexico and schedule a time for pickup.
  3. 3. Wave goodbye to your car
    After you accept our cash offer, we’ll schedule your vehicle for pick up within three working days in many cases. When the junk car removal specialist comes knocking on your door, he or she will give you your cash or check payment for your keys, title (if required), and vehicle. Towing is free, so you can rest easy knowing there are no hidden fees.

You can sell your junk car in New Mexico for a lot of money!

We buy junk cars in New Mexico, and virtually every junker that comes our way is accepted as long as all the parts are there. However, we do separate our junk cars into three separate groups when we figure out how much to offer you.

The Tin-Cans-on-Wheels Category

The rusted-out-and-beyond-repair cars make up our first sorting group. These cars have seen far better days, and because of this will probably be recycled by New Mexico junk car buyers and junk yards for raw materials, so size and weight of the vehicle will determine the price. You might expect anywhere from a $50 to $200 cash amount or check from us before we take it to an auto salvage yard.

Those Cars That One Day May See the Road Again

But if your car isn’t necessarily rotting away at the shocks, then it’s what we call an “in-betweener.” These cars might need a few repairs to get back on the road, or at the very least still, have usable parts. We usually can’t give an exact price on these right off the gate, but we’ll offer you more than those in our first category.

The Car You Still Use to Pick Up the Kids

If you’re still doing the school run in your so-called junker, then congrats: you have what we call a “This car isn’t junk!” kind of whip. For cars like these, we may offer you anywhere from $200 to $10,000 for it.

How to sign your New Mexico car title

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your New Mexico 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. Towards the bottom of the front of your New Mexico title is where you'll want to sign and print to transfer ownership. Make sure you sign as a seller and not a buyer, and don't write anything on the back in the dealer assignment sections.
  2. First sign the front of the title where indicated by "Signature(s) of Seller(s)" (see image).
    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.

How to get a duplicate New Mexico title

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

  1. Fill out the New Mexico Application for Duplicate Certificate of Title.
  2. Bring your duplicate title application to your local MVD location.
  3. Please note that there may be a two to three week waiting period before a duplicate title can be issued and the cost is $16.50. (Paid to the NM motor vehicle division).

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in New Mexico

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in New Mexico 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 New Mexico 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 New Mexico

  1. To have an abandoned vehicle removed from your private property, you must first contact your local law enforcement office.
  2. A person or company may claim an Abandoned Vehicle Lien on a vehicle that was abandoned on their property for at least (30) thirty days.
    If the vehicle is more than (8) eight years old, it may be disposed of by a licensed dismantler. If the lien claimant chooses to sell the vehicle and it is more than (8) eight years old, the lien claimant must follow instructions on titling through the lien process. If the vehicle is less than eight years old, is repairable, or if the property owner wishes to retain it for his own use or to sell it, the property owner must proceed to make claim for the vehicle through the abandoned vehicle lien process to obtain a title.

Frequently asked questions in NM

Can you buy cars in New Mexico without title?

Only under limited circumstances. We certainly cannot purchase every vehicle that is submitted to us without title. There are certain restrictions such as age and location, and it’s ultimately up to your local buyer. In the cases where we can purchase without title, the offer will be substantially less.

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

New Mexico often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your New Mexico MVD.

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 MVD 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 should complete the notice of vehicle sold form and return it to your local MVD office.

    "The driver side-view mirror is missing. The car runs, but the battery is dead at this moment. It takes a little wiggle to start the ignition. I couldn't afford the insurance and had to turn the plate in which are the reasons for junking the vehicle."

    2003 Volkswagen Jetta

    "This car has a clean body, and the engine was running fine last time I drove it. I had to go away to school for four months, and the car was left parked outside where, apparently, via a previously unknown leak, rain was able to get into the car. The interior has extensive water and mold damage. My guess is that the battery is currently dead, since it hasn't been driven in months, but I haven't tried to start it because there is too much mold for me to feel comfortable getting into the car. I am now moving, and I need to junk the car for some cash fairly quickly."

It has new wheel cylinders in the rear and new window motors on both sides. It has new door handles (driver side is installed, passenger side needs to be put in, but I do have it). It has new window switches and a new heater control panel. It has new rotors and hubs in the front on both sides. It has a new starter. I replaced the battery cable down to the starter. I rebuilt the transmission two years ago. It has new air shocks. Most of this is within the past five months."
