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

Hi there, Eric here from The Clunker Junker! I’ve been reviewing our latest data from North Carolina and what I’m seeing is interesting. We’ve got an average payout of approximately $522 for a variety of vehicles throughout the state. For compact cars like the Honda Civic or Volkswagen Golf, the payout tends to be slightly lower, averaging around $465. On the other hand, SUVs and crossovers such as the Ford Expedition or Toyota RAV4 are commanding higher prices, averaging around $650. Now, pickup trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado and Ford F-150 are not far behind, they’re fetching an average offer of approximately $644.

Moving on to the Clunker Junker records, over the recent weeks, we purchased nearly 18,557 vehicles and paid more than an impressive $10 Million. In North Carolina, our star vehicle has been the venerable Honda Accord, a dependable and well-respected sedan. However, older Accords are often plagued with issues, such as transmission failures and excessive oil consumption, making them costly to maintain over time. This is where selling your Honda Accord to us, rather than spending money on repairs, can be a savvy financial decision.

Now, when we talk about the “cash for cars” industry, understanding how the market price varies is crucial. In North Carolina, I’ve observed that the prices have been relatively steady, varying insignificantly by about 0.8% each month. This trend closely mirrors the market conditions we experienced last year and, in my expert opinion, I foresee this stability continuing for a while. This period of steady prices makes it an ideal time to consider selling your car, allowing you to capitalize on the current stable market conditions. Rest assured, as a devoted specialist in this industry, I will continue to monitor the market closely and keep you updated with pertinent trends and changes.

How to sign your North Carolina car title

Required: The state of North Carolina 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 North Carolina 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. When signing and notarizing your North Carolina title, make sure you are using the back of the title in the top section that says "Re-assignment of title by registered owner". Leave blank the section for re-assignment by licensed dealers and purchaser's application for new certificate of title.
  2. First sign the back of the title where indicated by "Signature(s) of Seller(s)" (see image). This may need 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 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.
  4. Have the title notarized, this is required by the state.
