Here’s how much you can sell a junk car for in Rhode Island

There’s a pretty wide range of possibilities when it comes to what you can earn for your clunker.

Is That even still a Vehicle?

These are the junkers that saw their hey-day come and go many years ago. These are recycled for raw materials and usually don’t have any parts worth salvaging or saving. You have no use for a car or truck in this condition, so why not get some cash for it? Vehicles like this can get you anywhere from $50 to $125.

It’s Not So Bad, is It?

These are the clunkers that are definitely not seeing the road again, but still have some sought-after parts that can find new homes in other vehicles. Junk cars like this will net you a little more than the ones in the “pure junk” category.

Still Kicking

We aren’t limited to junk cars only. We also buy used vehicles and can usually pay even more than other junkyards in RI. For a car or truck like this, you can see anywhere from $200 to $10,000 depending on the condition and model.

How to sign your Rhode Island car title

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Rhode Island 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 back of your Rhode Island title is a section that says "Transfer by owner". This is the section you should use when you sign and print. Ignore the sections that talk about dealer reassignment. Anything you write there could make the title unusable.
  2. First sign the back 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 back of the title where it reads "Hand Print Name(s) of Seller(s)".
    Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

  2. Bring your application to the DMV headquarters in Cranston (Duplicate titles are only handled at the headquarters).

Will you buy my car in Rhode Island if I don’t have the title?

In many cases, yes! We can’t buy every car without title, but our buyers do make tons of offers on vehicles without documentation everyday. However, the offers are much lower and you’ll be required to present photo identification to prove you own the vehicle. It has to match a valid registration.

Yes, unless you are transferring the plates to a new vehicle. You can return the plates to your local DMV office.

    "This vehicle was a gift from my child's mother. Now, we are in an ugly custody battle, and every time I see this thing, it reminds me of her. I want to junk it. It runs absolutely great, and it's drivable all day on and off of the freeway. It fires right up. It's worth $1,500 according to Kelly Blue Book."

  • Matheo's 1999 Honda Accord Coupe EX V6

    "The reason I am junking the car is that I just moved to another state. I have no money or job at the moment, and I'm needing the cash, especially with a four month old. The title is not in my name, but it is on there as the buyer. I paid $800 for it. It drives well, and it seems to be a good car. It has four used tires and a new donut tire. It has front-end damage, minor hood damage, and the bumper is broken, but it's easily fixable. "

    "The control arms on both front sides need to be replaced. All of the tires are near the end of their lifespan, and the back passenger tire is completely deflated and came off of the rim. I want to junk it for cash because I just graduated from college, and it is time to get a new car."

    "The back window is missing, and that is all that's wrong with the glass, lights and mirrors. The car will start, but there is an electrical problem. We replaced the spark plugs, and it started up but died 30 seconds later. It will turn over, it just will not start."
