Junk cars, wrecked cars, salvage cars… the names we give to old, damaged cars aren’t exactly flattering. But what exactly is a salvage car? A lot of people refer to salvage cars as junk cars. But junk cars are actually cars that are literally ready to be shipped off the the car dump yard, because they are totally useless and they can’t be fixed anymore. When people say they are looking for cheap junk cars for sale, they are actually referring to salvage cars. A salvage car is something completely different than junk cars. They can usually be fixed up so that they become drivable again.
Cheap Junk Cars For Sale – Rebuild Them To Save Thousands!
Once an insurance company has a look at a damaged car and judges that the repairs would cost more than the car itself, the car is going to be officially listed as a salvage car. This instantly decreases the price of the car by a great margin. But just because the insurance company says it’s not worth the effort to repair a car, doesn’t mean that everybody has to agree. You might have an old car that’s in mint condition. Then, when you are involved in an accident where the car sustains significant damage, the insurance company might say the car is totaled.
If you are like me and you like to fix up cars and perhaps sell them off for a profit, then you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for any car auctions near you. Because that’s where you can find a lot of these cheap ‘junk’ cars for sale. The prices of these cars are in most cases no more than a couple hundred of dollars. A price like that is a real joke for a car that can be fixed up by a person who is good at it.
You’ll have to keep in mind that not all salvage vehicles are created equal. Some of them are truly junk cars that are so worn that you’d have to replace all the parts. In this case, you might as well not buy that particular car. But other salvage vehicles are simply worth their weight in gold. Some of these cars are in pretty good condition. They’ll only have a few dents and a damaged drive train or something like that. Those cars can be fixed up and be made drivable again. I’ve even sold repaired salvage cars for up to prices as high as $2000!
