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 Texas. 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, the man behind The Clunker Junker. I’ve been analyzing our recent trends in Texas and wanted to share some interesting facts. Our current payouts for vehicles in Texas are sitting at an average of $761. Small cars, like the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla, are fetching slightly less, unfortunately — their average offer sits at around $688. On the flip side, pickup trucks like the Ford F150 and Chevy Silverado, are being snapped up for more, with an average price offered of $997. Your SUVs and crossovers — think Jeep Grand Cherokee or Honda CR-V — are being bought for a decent average price of $864.

At The Clunker Junker, we’ve had a busy period recently, with approximately 40,815 vehicles exchanging hands. The exchange has made car owners richer by over 30 million dollars — talk about a cash injection! In Texas, particularly, it seems the Nissan Altima, a four-door sedan, is a real crowd favorite. But you know, the fancy gadgets and comfort features of a Nissan Altima could sometimes come with their share of troubles — think faulty catalytic converters or malfunctioning oxygen sensors. In fact, these problems, among others, can be so troublesome that selling the car can often prove a more economically viable option than getting it fixed.

As a seasoned veteran in the cash for cars industry, I’ve got a solid grasp of used car prices and want to share my thoughts with you. In Texas, prices appear to be firmly anchored, shifting only by a small fraction of 0.3% each month. This stability mirrors what we saw a year ago and I anticipate it being the trend for some time. Given this strong market stability, if you’re considering selling your car, now’s the perfect time. Stay tuned as I’ll be keeping a keen eye on market dynamics and will keep you updated with all upcoming trends!

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

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.
