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

Hi there, I’m Eric Mitz, CEO and founder of The Clunker Junker. I’ve been doing a little bit of analysis on our recent car offers in West Virginia and thought it might be interesting to share some insights with you. The general average we’re putting forward for vehicles in the area hovers around the $432 mark. If we breakdown that number further, you’ll notice some differences based on the type of vehicles. For instance, smaller cars like the Honda Fit or Toyota Corolla fetch a slightly lower average price that sits around $365. On the other end of the spectrum, pickup trucks, say a Chevy Silverado or a Dodge RAM, are managing to attract our highest offers, averaging about $599. Then you have your SUVs and crossovers, your Ford Escapes and Honda CR-Vs for example, nudging towards the upper end of the scale at an average of $503.

Moving onto some more findings - in our recent exchanges, we have successfully purchased and helped owners part ways with approximately 2143 vehicles. Now, if you do the math, that translates to us having paid out over an impressive $900,000! When it comes to favorites, it seems like West Virginia has a soft spot for the Ford F-150. Now, this is a highly robust and popular pickup truck. While it is known for its durability, like every vehicle, it carries its own set of common issues. These can range from ignition coil failure to problems with the power window. Sometimes, the cost of addressing these issues can surpass the truck’s value itself, making selling it a more economical option.

Drawing on my 12 years of experience in the “cash for cars” scene, here’s a bit of an industry forecast. I’ve noticed that vehicle prices in West Virginia have been pretty consistent, adjusting by a negligible 0.9% each month. It’s almost as if we’ve hit a rewind on our journey and found ourselves in the same spot we were a year ago, price-wise. My instinct tells me that this pricing stability will linger for a little while longer. So, in the grand scheme of things, now might be an opportune time to sell your car. You can bank on me to keep a sharp eye on the market movement and keep you posted with all the latest updates and trends.

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in West Virginia

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in West 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 West Virginia abandoned vehicle removal procedures. We have given a general overview of what that entails below.

  1. To have a vehicle removed from your private property, you must first contact your local law enforcement office.
  2. You cannot apply for the title to the vehicle, but if the last registered owner and/or lienholder do not show interest within (25) twenty-five days, the vehicle may be sold by law enforcement at public auction or to a salvage yard to be destroyed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you buy cars in West Virginia without a title?

Nope, sorry! We don’t currently have many buyers willing to make offers on vehicles with no title in West Virginia. You would need to obtain a replacement through your local DMV office. It’s fairly easy, and we can help you with that if needed!

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

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