Used Cars

Salvage Cars and when to buy them.

Salvage cars are those that may require extensive repair works and the expense for that repair is greater than the price/ value of that car. Whenever this situation arises, the car is declared salvage. In certain cases, if there is a significant damage on the frame of the car due to an event like accident or hurricane, it is also determined to be salvage by the inspection agency. In some cases cars with no damage, like a theft recovery are re-branded and titled as salvage.
