Types of salvage cars

As established by Fasecolda it is possible to identify various types of rescue vehicles. These are:

Salvage for damages

They are vehicles that suffered a total loss due to damage , that is, the cost of repair is greater than 75% of the commercial value of the vehicle at the time of the accident. They can be purchased to be used as spare parts for other cars.

Theft rescue

They are those cars that were stolen and recovered by the authorities . When the insurance company makes the compensation of the car, it becomes your property, therefore you can allocate it to what you consider most appropriate.

Other salvages

They are salvage cars that do not fall into the previously defined categories. They are vehicles that need a very complicated repair process or that were not repaired satisfactorily . Based on these inconveniences, the insurer decides to pay the compensation and keep the vehicle.

Where to buy a salvage vehicle?

The ideal when buying a salvage vehicle is that you approach the insurance companies, since they have several cars available. The sale of insurance salvage is very popular for the prices they offer to the public, usually with discounts of 40% to 60% in relation to the commercial value of the vehicle .

You can also buy it through an auction. In these cases, you have to make sure that the auctioneer has a certain reliability.
