Eric Mitz

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 Virginia. He is also a data nerd with a finger on the pulse of the cash for cars industry and salvage vehicle values.

Hello there, I’m Eric Mitz, the guy behind The Clunker Junker. I’ve had my fingers on the pulse of the cash for cars industry for the better part of 12 years, and today I’d like to share some recent insights and figures specially related to Virginia.

To give you a rough idea, we come around to an average payout of about $562 for vehicles we acquire in Virginia. This isn’t a hard and fast rule, though; the size and type of the vehicle play a critical role in determining the offer. For instance, we generally see smaller cars like the Ford Focus or Toyota Corolla tapering off slightly lower with an average offer price of $533.

On the flip side, that Ford F-150 or Chevrolet Silverado in your driveway could fetch the higher side of our payout spectrum with average offers for pickup trucks soaring to about $636! SUVs and crossovers such as the Toyota Highlander or Ford Escape fall just a bit shy of this, averaging around $630 in offers.

Looking back at our recent records, we have already given new homes to 13,882 vehicles and returned over 8 million dollars to our beloved customers- all this in the past 30 days! Among these, the Honda Accord, a ubiquitous midsize sedan, emerged as the most popular vehicle of choice. While the Accord is generally a beloved car, they’re not without their share of mechanical ailments such as automatic transmission failure, engine shutdown problems, and brake wear. When the repair costs start adding up, it might be a smarter move to consider selling the Accord instead of pouring more money into its upkeep.

Jumping over to the market dynamics, I am observing a steady trend in the prices within Virginia, reflecting a minuscule growth of just 0.1% month-on-month. This is more or less the same situation we were in around the same time last year, and I foresee these price points holding their ground for a while longer. So, if you have been sitting on the fence about selling your old car, now might just be the perfect time to go for it while the market is still steady.

Keeping tabs on the market trends comes with the territory, so you can count on me to circle back with any fresh developments. Until then, happy selling!

How to sign your Virginia car title

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Virginia 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. When you sign your Virginia title make sure you do so on the front where it says "Assignment of title by owner" (section A). Leave the back of the title completely blank or you could end up voiding it.
  2. First sign the front of the title where indicated by "Signature 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 front of the title where it reads "Printed Name of Seller(s)".
    Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Virginia

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Virginia 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 Virginia 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 Virginia

  1. To have an abandoned vehicle removed from your private property, you must first use the 17-digit VIN number to locate the last registered owner and/or lienholder. You must begin the Abandoned Vehicle Process (AVP) at your local DMV with a $25.00 fee.
  2. The DMV will inform the last registered owner and/or lienholder via certified mail that they have (15) fifteen days to remove the vehicle.
  3. If the owners/lienholders of the abandoned vehicle fail to remove the vehicle in the allotted time frame, you may post a (21) twenty-one day long intent to auction the vehicle through the DMV website. After the posting period ends, you apply for the title the vehicle, sell it, or have it demolished.
Frequently Asked Questions

Frequent questions we get in Virginia

Can I sell you my car or truck in Virginia if I don’t have the title?

Sorry, we would love to, but in most cases we can’t. Not many of our VA buyers are currently buying vehicles without a title. As the legal owner you’ll need to obtain a valid title before you can sell the vehicle to us, or to anyone else. Let us know if you need help with that process!

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

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

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 DMV 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.

Is there anything else I need to do?

You may need to notify your local DMV that you have sold the vehicle. You can contact them with any additional questions or concerns about the transfer of your title.
