Five Types of Damage National Salvage Manager for Farmers Insurance, Mark Binder, identifies five damages that supports a salvage title on any vehicle. 1.Hail Damage As the name suggests, vehicles that suffer any damage in a hail storm may bear a “salvage title”. Some states have a “hail damage” title assigned to a vehicle in such circumstances. Thoroughly examine the vehicle under such damages before you purchase it. Check electronic parts, the engine, and all nook and corners for damages. 2.Flood Damage


Any vehicle that bear any damage due to floods carry a “salvage title”. Some vehicles bear a “Flood Damage” title if the state identifies this as a salvage title. Flood damaged salvage cars need in-depth examination to check the condition of the vehicle, especially the electronic parts. 3.Vandalism If someone spray paints or overturns a vehicle to cause enough damage, it may bear a “salvage title”. It is, however, important to note that no state has “vandalism” as a definite salvage title. Ask questions about the salvage title to get a detailed description of the damages and make sure the repair cost does not overshoot your budget. 4.Theft Recovery A stolen car, when and if recovered, can be sold by giving it a “salvage title”. Many auctioneers provide a “Theft Recovery” title depending on state and authenticity of the auction. Inspect the vehicle and ask for all documents of the vehicle. Evaluate the repair cost and make sure it is not above your set budget. 5.Non-Repairable Vehicles with “Non-Repairable” title are severely damaged and non-operable. Such vehicles have no resale value, but may have some value for parts that are in good condition. Some states give these vehicles a “Junk Title”. Choose such salvage titled vehicles after inspecting the parts you need to repair in another vehicle. They are affordable and serve their purpose. Conclusion A vehicle can bear a salvage title in different situations, such as accidents, theft, flood damage, or hail damage. When buying vehicles from car auctions, inspection of every vehicle is specific to its salvage title. It is, therefore, crucial for you to understand different kinds of damages and what to inspect in each situation. Run a VHR and clear all doubts before finalizing your decision. Make sure you do your research and choose a reputable and reliable auto auction to buy salvage cars.
