Looking for the best cash for cars in Utah? Look no further than The Clunker Junker!

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, Eric the founder of The Clunker Junker here! I’ve been analysing our recent car dealings in Utah, and I wanted to give you an update. Across the board, for all types of automobiles, our average payout is sitting right around $573. For an economical compact car like a Ford Fiesta or Honda Fit, we pay slightly less, around $508. However, if you own a sturdy pickup, such as a RAM 1500 or a Ford F-150, we’ve been offering considerably more, averaging about $826. Mid-range SUVs like the Jeep Cherokee and crossover types such as the Toyota Rav4, are fetching closer to an average of $675.

The Clunker Junker has been busy lately, having acquired approximately 5960 used vehicles and shelling out more than 3 million dollars in return! In Utah, the Honda Civic, a compact sedan well known for its fuel efficiency, topped our list as the most commonly sold vehicle. While this model is generally praised for its reliability over time, it can develop typical issues associated with used vehicles such as engine problems, deteriorating suspension, and brake wear. Despite these problems, the Honda Civic still holds value which is why, instead of spending on costly repairs, trading it in with us could be a smart and profitable move.

As a longstanding veteran in the cash-for-cars industry, I’ve been keeping a close eye on market trends. Currently, the Utah car market is showing remarkable stability. Prices have stayed more or less constant, fluctuating by a slight -0.2% each month. We’re in a very similar position to where we were last year, and I anticipate that things will remain steady for the foreseeable future. Therefore, if you’re considering selling your car, now is a great time to take the leap while the market is stable. Rest assured, I’ll continue to track the market and keep you updated with the latest developments.

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".

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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:

  1. Fill out the Application for Duplicate Utah Title
  2. 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
  3. 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.

  1. To get an abandoned vehicle removed from your private property, you must first contact your local law enforcement office.
  2. 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

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.
