Why Body Shops Want to Take Your Damaged Vehicle Apart?

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 14, 2014

More commonly referred to as a "tear down" for its' similarity to ripping off the bad parts until you get to the good ones. Most collision repair shops do it to determine if there is hidden damage that they should include in the repair estimate that they agreed to perform at NO CHARGE. It only becomes a problem if the shop tears apart your vehicle and you elect to SELL YOUR DAMAGED VEHICLE instead of repairing it! That is because the collision shop will now ask to be reimbursed for the tear down charges, plus the tow, plus daily storage fees and you are effectively prevented from selling your damaged car because they have you over a barrel financially.

You might even have to forfeit your wrecked vehicle just to get out of having to write another check.

If you have had an accident and you are undecided on what to do, remember that you have the right to sell your car "as-is". The body shop will not give you a competitive price to buy your car because they don't have to and you can't remove the vehicle without paying them. Your car is now in pieces and you are stuck with what they give you, right? WRONG! DamageMAX.com will tell you straight up what your damaged vehicle is worth in it's wrecked form, where it sits. At DamageMAX.com we value hundreds of damaged vehicles per day ABSOLUTELY FREE and PAY MORE than other damaged vehicle buyers because our network of buyer is the biggest and best.

Don't Fix Your Wrecked Vehicle!

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 08, 2013

If you were "saving" money by raising your deductible or dropping insurance coverage on your vehicle to liability only, don't try to fix your car on the cheap! You can't cut corners on a collision repair and while many people try, you are spending good money after a bad cause.

Before you fix a wrecked vehicle, consider:

  1. Accident History - a wrecked vehicle usually has a CARFAX that will hurt your vehicles' value substantially. Repairing it is simply restoring a car that will never again be worth what it was before the accident. These are lost dollars that cannot be recovered. Fixing a wrecked car is a zero sum game.
  2. Paint & filler – older vehicles have paint that is extremely difficult to match and it is very visible even to the untrained eye. Paint work on a vehicle denigrates the value substantially.
  3. Cheap parts & materials – OEM recycled parts are a good choice if purchased and installed correctly. Don't use just any parts to restore your vehicle, non-OEM especially can de-value the vehicle post repair.
  4. Save now, pay later – if you saved by cutting your insurance coverage or raising your deductible you will most likely be a candidate for "saving the deductible". This is the fine art of cutting more corners and making cheap repairs to your vehicle so you may not have to write a check for your deductible. Wrong, wrong, wrong! Don't make cheap repairs to your vehicle, you get what you pay for and you will not get your money back on resale, in fact you may cost yourself an opportunity to sell your vehicle and be stuck with it – poor repairs and all! Some vehicles are best left damaged and sold.

DamageMAX pays top dollar for damaged, wrecked and inoperable vehicles. We buy any car, anywhere in the USA.
