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

Hello, Eric from The Clunker Junker here. I was taking a look at the recent data from North Dakota, and I can say that the average price we’ve offered for vehicles in the region is around $347. If we delve deeper, offers for smaller vehicles such as compact cars or sedans are slightly lower, averaging at about $255 - think models like Honda Accord or the Toyota Corolla. On the other hand, pickup trucks command the highest average offers at around $531. In the pickup segment, models like GMC Sierra or Chevrolet Silverado are in frequent rotation. SUVs and crossovers are placed comfortably in the middle, with average payouts coming at about $437. For example, we recently bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Ford Explorer, both fitting in with these numbers.

Switching gears a bit, let’s talk about our recent purchases. The Clunker Junker has successfully procured close to 849 vehicles in the recent past, which has led to an impressive payout exceeding 300,000 dollars! The belle of the ball in North Dakota has been the Ford F-150, a sturdy and reliable pickup truck. However, like all vehicles, it has its own set of common issues. These problems can range from brake and rotor wear to transmission failures, which is why sometimes it’s a more financially sound choice to sell the truck, rather than pouring money into repairs.

Now, let’s discuss the “cash for cars” market in North Dakota. The current trends indicate a stable market, with the prices varying only slightly by a tiny margin of -3.0% each month. According to my data from the same time last year, such a trend continued to remain almost constant. Hopefully, this indicates that the prices should remain steady for the foreseeable future. This could be an opportune time to sell your vehicle, considering the market stability. I would also recommend keeping an eye on this space, as I will continue to keep you updated as the market fluctuates or other significant trends emerge.

How to sign your North Dakota car title

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your North Dakota 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 front of your North Dakota title is a section that says "Assignment and warranty of title". This is the section where you will want to sign and print your name. Make sure to leave the buyer/transferee lines blank, and don't write anything on the back in the dealer reassignment sections.
  2. First sign the back of the title where indicated by "Signature of Seller/Transferor" (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 back of the title, where it reads "Hand Printed Name(s) of Seller(s)".
    Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

How to get a duplicate North Dakota title

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

  1. Complete the SFN 2872 Application for Certificate of Title and Registration.
  2. Complete a lien release if needed.
  3. Bring your completed duplicate title application to the DOT office (except Williston).
  4. Please note that there may be a 1 to 2-week waiting period before a duplicate title can be issued, and the cost is $5.00. (Paid to the ND Department of Transportation).

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in North Dakota

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in North Dakota 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 North Dakota abandoned vehicle removal procedures. We have given a general overview of what that entails below.

  1. To have an abandoned vehicle removed from your private property, you must first contact your local law enforcement office.
    If the vehicle is missing vital interior components, more than (7) seven years old, and does not display valid license plates, the vehicle will be immediately disposed of. If the vehicle does not meet all (3) three requirements, law enforcement will attempt to locate and contact the last registered owner and/or lienholder.
  2. If the last registered owner and/or lienholder have failed to respond or certified mail has returned undeliverable, the vehicle will be sold at public auction.
Frequently Asked Questions

Can you buy vehicles without a title in North Dakota?

As much as we’d love to, we can’t. Our buyers in North Dakota do not currently buy without title. However, if you need help getting a duplicate title, The Clunker Junker would be happy to help! Once a replacement title is received, we could then buy your car.

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

North Dakota often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your North Dakota 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 may need to notify your local DVS that you have sold the vehicle. You can contact them with any additional questions or concerns about the transfer of your title.
