Get cash for your junk car in Utah today!
Maybe your car is no longer Bonneville Salt Flats worthy, or maybe you wrapped it around one of Pando the Trembling Giant’s large roots in Fishlake National Forest. Either way, The Clunker Junker is here to help you get cash for cars in Utah! Our process is time tested, and our customers love how efficient we are. We buy cars in Utah and promise the best rates for your car regardless of the condition (as long as it’s complete!).
We’re the best car buyers in Utah
Of course, you do have other options when you want to sell a junk car in Utah. You could take your time with the tire kickers on sites like Craigslist. Keep in mind, you’re not selling a desirable car in top condition. The number of people actually interested in a wrecked car, or a car with mechanical issues, is very limited. We’ve got buyers next to every national forest, so in Utah’s case, that’s buyers in every county.
You could also drive your car to that guy with the sign on the side of the road that says he buys junk cars. Except, your car doesn’t drive, so you’ll have to pay for a tow. That’s pricey. And you know what will happen if you don’t like the offer he gives you? You’re going to be paying for a tow home. With The Clunker Junker, you’ll know what your offer is up front.
I guess you could also just drive it into Bingham Canyon mine, though that’s probably frowned upon by law enforcement. We do not condone that kind of behavior. Plus, with about 300 sunny days a year, why would you ever want to spend them locked up?

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 Utah. He is also a data nerd with a finger on the pulse of the cash for cars industry and salvage vehicle values.
Hi there, this is Eric from The Clunker Junker. Upon taking a look at recent offers in Utah, it appears that our average payout is around $546. In particular, small cars such as a Toyota Corolla or a Honda Civic may earn our customers a little less at $509 on average. The highest offers we have are for pickup trucks, like a Ford F-150 or a Chevy Silverado, which can reach around $744. Meanwhile, SUV and crossover vehicles, say something like a Honda CR-V or a Ford Escape, fall somewhere in the middle at $596.
Here at The Clunker Junker, we have purchased more than 6,800 vehicles in the past months and paid out over four million dollars! Out of those vehicles, our most popular in Utah was the Honda Accord sedan. Honda Accords are known to be reliable cars but can be prone to certain issues such as the timing belt failing and transmission problems. In many cases, it can be more cost-effective to sell the car to The Clunker Junker rather than investing in costly repairs.
It appears that the used car market in Utah has been quite consistent over the past year, with prices shifting only slightly month-to-month by approximately 0.5%. This suggests that prices should remain consistent for some time to come, making now an ideal time to sell your car for a good price. I’ll keep an eye on market trends and let you know if and when something changes.
How to sign your Utah car title
We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Utah 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".
- On the back of your Utah title, look at "Section A" at the top where it says "Assignment of title by registered owner", then find the section labeled "Seller". Here is where you should sign and print your name. Leave the buyer section and everything in section B blank.
- First, sign the back of the title where indicated by "Signature of Seller (and joint seller)".
Always sign in pen on the seller line, and never sign in the dealer section.
- Next, print (don't sign) your name on the back of the title where it reads "Print name of seller".
Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.
How to get a duplicate Utah title
The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Utah title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Utah you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:
- Fill out the Application for Duplicate Utah Title
- Bring your duplicate title application to your local MVD or mail your application and title fee to the UT motor vehicle division at:
Division of Motor Vehicles Mail and Correspondence P.O. Box 30412 Salt Lake City, UT 84130
- Please note that may be a waiting period before a duplicate title can be issued and the cost is $6.00. (Paid to the UT motor vehicle division).
How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Utah
Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Utah 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 Utah 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 Utah
- To get an abandoned vehicle removed from your private property, you must first contact your local law enforcement office.
- If the last registered owner and/or lienholder do not claim interest in the vehicle within (30) thirty days from the date of seizure, the vehicle will be sold at public auction.
Frequently asked questions in UT
Can you buy cars with no title in Utah?
Sure can! Not every car, but we can buy some. It’ll depend on how old your car is and the exact location. No matter what, you’ll need to prove ownership with a matching photo ID and registration or insurance card. Also, your offer will probably be much lower without title.
What if my title doesn’t look like the one pictured?
Utah often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Utah MVD.
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 MVD 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.
