Curious how much you can sell a junk car for in Texas?

We offer to buy your car for cash, and each car will have a different value. To best decide what your car may be worth, check out these three groups and decide which one your vehicle might fit into:

1. The Rust Bucket

Texas’ hot, humid weather has taken a toll on these cars. Typically, these are crushed and sold to auto salvage yards. What we pay is dependent on size and weight. There are not usually many usable parts left. Expect between $75 and $300 for these clunkers.

2. The So-So’s

While these cars aren’t classified as junk or scrap, they will be used to salvage parts that may be of value before the rest of the body is crushed for scrap at the junkyard. We pay better rates for these vehicles.

3. Used cars that still drive

Hey who said we exclusively bought clunkers? If you have a car that you’re not happy with, but it’s in good condition, we can pay more cash for your car in Texas depending on their condition. We’ve been known to pay over $10,000 for used cars that can be re-sold, even beating dealer trade in many cases.

How to sign your Texas car title

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Texas 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. Texas is unique in that you should sign both the front and the back of your title. Make sure when you sign and print on the back, you use the "assignment of title" section and not any of the dealer re-assignment sections. If you do that, you could void your title and need a new one.
  2. First sign the front of your title where it says "Signature of owner or agent".
  3. Next sign the back of the title where indicated by "Signature of seller/agent".
    Always sign in pen on the seller line, and never sign in the dealer section.
  4. Print (don't sign) your name on the back of the title, where it reads "Printed Name (same as signature)".
    Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

How to get a duplicate Texas title

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

  1. Complete the Texas Application for a Certified Copy of Title.
  2. If your vehicle is newer than 10 years old, provide an odometer reading.
  3. Bring your duplicate title application to your local DMV or mail your application to the TX division of motor vehicles at:
    1601 Southwest Parkway, Suite A
    Wichita Falls, TX 76302
  4. Please note that there may be a waiting period before a duplicate title can be issued and the cost is $2.00 by mail and $5.45 in person.

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Texas

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Texas 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 Texas 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 Texas

  1. To have an abandoned vehicle removed from your private property, you must submit an Application for Authority to Dispose of a Motor Vehicle to a Demolisher to the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) with a $2.00 fee.
  2. There is a (20) twenty day holding period while the (TXDOT) attempts to contact the last registered owner and/or lienholder. If neither shows interest towards the vehicle, the (TXDOT) will issue a Certificate of Authority which grants authority to have the vehicle disposed of or salvaged.

Frequently asked questions in TX

Can you buy my car with no title in Texas?

It’s definitely possible! It’s ultimately up to our individual local buyers, but many do buy without title in TX. Some have to offer a bit less for the vehicle because the options for resale are limited, and you’ll need to prove you own the car. This is usually done by showing a matching registration and photo ID.

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

Texas often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Texas DPS.

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 DPS 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.

What should I do after I sell my car?

After the sale, you’ll want to make sure you fill out a notice of transfer to release liability on the vehicle. This ensures you won’t be held responsible for things like toll or parking violations.

    "The front windshield is cracked, and it needs a battery. It also needs a full paint job. The interior is extremely worn. The vehicle is drivable. It was given to my 16 year old, but we have decided to purchase a newer vehicle."

  • Cristal's 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190

    "I bought the vehicle as a restoration project, as it is a rare turbo diesel model. Years later, I still have no time to work on it. I have signed the title and vehicle transfer form from the original seller."

  • Edward's 2003 Saturn Vue
    2003 Saturn Vue

    "I had an exhaust pump and a fuel filter put in the vehicle almost three weeks ago to fix a stalling problem, but the mechanics at the dealership say I now need to install a master engine controller that "might or might not" solve the problem. That would cost around $1,500 which I don't have, and even if I did, I don't want to spend that cash on this vehicle. Also, there are some superficial scrapes on the right side doors of the vehicle but no dents or rust. "

  • Margret's 2004 Nissan Altima

    "The vehicle was in an accident where it rear-ended another vehicle. The bumper, both lights and the radiator are damaged. The hood is bent, the front bumper and radiator are bent, but it's not leaking yet. Both front lights are damaged. It's driveable at the moment, but the radiator will go out eventually. "

    "The engine is taken apart, but all of the parts are there I just don't have the time to put it back together. It needs a new head gasket, but other than that, it should be easily fixable."

  • Charles's 1997 Ford Escort

    "The vehicle doesn't run because it has been sitting for several months without being started. It was checked out about six months ago. It needed some work, and it wasn't worth it to us to fix it."
