NEVER Sell Your Wrecked Vehicle to the Body Shop

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Rule #1 - if you drove it in for an estimate, don't leave it there – ever! Possession is everything and you have only one option when they have your vehicle – to sell it to them, right? Wrong! DamageMAX is your "equalizer" and can quote your damaged car anytime, anywhere. Whether its at the body shop, a storage yard, a tow or impound facility or even your neighborhood car dealership lot DamageMAX
will give you a fast quote and pick up your car for free.

Rule #2 - If your vehicle was towed from the scene of the accident and is not drivable BEWARE! Storage charges will build very quickly and the tow operator will throw all kinds of hidden charges in the bill to encourage you to give them the title to your vehicle. DO NOT GIVE YOUR TITLE TO ANYONE without calling DamageMAX first! We will make sure that you get the most $$$ for your damaged vehicle and put more cash in your pocket. We will even pay your tow and storage fees.

IF you ever get any pressure to hand over your title because it's "too far gone" or the "damage is severe" the light bulb should immediately go off and you should take control by calling DamageMAX for an immediate price quote.

Let's face it folks, Body Shops know how to fix a car and they know what they are worth. They have the edge and if they have your car, they have "all the cards". DamageMAX is your Ace in the Hole, don't hold it – use it, now!

Call 888-629-2137 or visit www.damagemax.com for a fast, free quote.

Don't be a victim for a storage yard or a body shop.

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 18, 2013

Sell your vehicle, FAST, FREE and SAFELY

When it's time to sell your wrecked vehicle, make sure you think about the options that suit your needs.

Consider your time - what is it worth? Will the amount of time it takes to sell it your self result in a higher price? Is the general public the right audience for your damaged vehicle? Is craigslist really your best option? There are lots of unscrupulous fraudsters on craigslist that operate scams to take advantage of less-than-savvy sellers. If you are not an experienced car trader, don't do it!

Here is a stark reminder of how someone risked life and limb for a better deal. Read more...

Is your vehicle a NTL non-total loss

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 12, 2013

Most people are familiar with the term "total loss" and if you are fortunate, you've never had one! The insurance claim game has changed however as third world demand for vehicle parts, damaged & inoperative vehicles and raw metals have given insurance carriers a way to reduce their claims settlement expense on total losses. Because they can sell your wrecked vehicle for top dollar, they are more inclined to total it and pay you fair market value. For a more in depth explanation on the total loss decision process see http://damagemax.com/value.htm#panel-1.

So what is a Non-Total Loss (NTL)? It's pretty simple…any vehicle with an insurance claim that does not meet the state mandated total loss threshold. This will include damaged vehicles, theft recoveries, hail, flood & fire damaged units, storm damaged vehicles, etc. These units will generally be drivable, but also include units with damage that are far beneath the total loss threshold. Your insurance carrier will be in "fix" mode on these vehicles almost 100% of the time and there is very little probability that you can convince them to total your vehicle.

DamageMAX wants your NTL! We specialize in NTL's - IT'S WHAT WE DO! Make the right move and call DamageMAX now for a free price quote on your Non-Total Loss vehicle. We buy any car, anywhere.

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 08, 2013

You just wrecked your vehicle and it's been towed from the accident scene. No injuries, thank heavens.

You Can't Hide a Wreck from CarFax

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 24, 2013

I love it when people advertise their vehicle for sale "NO CARFAX HISTORY" or "CLEAN CARFAX REPORT" and they are selling a recently wrecked vehicle.

They will brandish a CARFAX REPORT on the vehicle and circle the Vehicle Identification Number and happily send you a copy via email. Indeed the CARFAX report will show that there are no accidents and no stigma history which would dramatically reduce resale value in the future.

NOTE: This is evidence for how CarFax Negatively impacts the value of a damaged vehicle – we said this before…

There is a slight problem however…

CarFax procures data from law enforcement, tow and other governmental agencies and there is a lag in time.

Example:

"Customer A" skids off road and hits a tree - a single vehicle accident. A tow is required to recover the vehicle. Police arrived on the scene and dispatched the recovery vehicle. Customer A decides to not report the accident to his insurance company and declares CLEAN CarFax. CarFax pulls data on vehicle tow from participating police municipality several weeks later and reports MAJOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT HISTORY – vehicle towed from scene.

In this example, the customer misrepresented the vehicle "knowingly" and they told you about it which takes them off the hook if you buy their vehicle in either damaged or repaired form. When the CarFax report comes through, don't be surprised - "CarFax Knows"!

DamageMAX can keep you out of harms way. Sell your wrecked vehicle fast with DamageMAX and leave the liability & disclosure compliance behind. DamageMAX will buy your wrecked vehicle for cash, wherever – whenever and give you the freedom to get a replacement vehicle and the peace of mind that you deserve after having an accident.

If you have comprehensive insurance coverage and your repairs are covered, you have the right not to repair your vehicle. You may request the settlement check and not repair the vehicle. If you wrecked your vehicle and simply just don't feel comfortable driving the car again, please consider selling your damaged vehicle to DamageMAX. DamageMAX will buy your wreck and you keep the insurance check! Thought you could not have your cake and eat it too? Not so with DamageMAX!

DamageMAX will buy your wreck and you keep the insurance check!

The Sum of the Parts are Usually Worth More than the Whole, Especially in the Damaged Vehicle World

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 24, 2012

DamageMAX announces education series for consumer awareness.

The sum of the parts are usually worth more than the whole, especially in the damaged vehicle world.

Here are some great examples:

  1. The Engine from a 2006 Nissan Maxima is worth about $500
    • FALSE – an complete engine assembly sells for $1500 on average
  2. The Right Front Door from this car is worth:
    1. $250
    2. $500
    3. $650
    4. $850 – if you guessed $850 you are correct
  3. The transmission from this vehicle is worth:
    1. $500
    2. $750
    3. $1500
    4. $2000 – yes, on average the transmission will fetch $2000

2/3rds of all accidents are front end collisions which creates demand for those parts from the windshield, forward. That includes the engine and the transmission in almost all configurations. If your vehicle has a good engine and transmission and the miles are below 85,000 it has significant value left that you can convert to cash. Sell your wrecked vehicle to DamageMAX and get a head start on a replacement vehicle.

DamageMAX will buy your wreck and you keep the insurance check!
