What Should You Do if You Wreck Your Vehicle without Insurance coverage?

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, June 06, 2013

Whether you choose to sell or repair your vehicle, the key is to make a fast, deliberate decision about what to do with the vehicle and keep the storage charges to a bare minimum.

The storage yard is the enemy of the consumer with a damaged vehicle. It is their job to get as much of your money as they can and prevent you from getting your car back. Storage yards are predatory by nature but DamageMAX is their only natural enemy! Folks, the storage industry does not like DamageMAX and they do not want you to sell us your vehicle because it is bad for their business. The average storage and tow bill paid by INSURANCE COMPANIES is almost $500. Insurance companies have literally thousands of employees and vendors working to make sure your vehicle gets off the clock at the storage yard. If you don't have insurance coverage, nobody is on your side. The insurance company can't help you and once the storage yard finds out that you have no coverage, you are going to get sacked – big time! We see it every single day, hundreds of times a day!

What can you do?

First, if you wreck your vehicle, DO NOT tell the storage yard anything! It is not their business if you have coverage. Take charge and be decisive.

Second, call DamageMAX immediately for a fast, free price quote. We will buy any damaged vehicle, anywhere and we will take your car out of storage and tow it for free. We even pay the storage charges when we buy your car!

Third, don't procrastinate ! Your car is wrecked and you need to make a decision TODAY – fix it or sell it! DamageMAX can help make that decision quick and easy by consulting with you – absolutely free! We will tell you what your wrecked car is worth, what the fair market value of the vehicle is after repairs and help estimate the cost of repairs so you can decide within minutes the best course of action for you!

DamageMAX is on your side. Call 888 629-2137 for a fast, free no obligation price quote or visit www.damagemax.com for more information.

Please call us for any reason if you have had a wreck and are not sure what to do. Our damaged vehicle consultants are standing by ready to assist at no cost.

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!

Vehicle Value Guidebooks and Your Wrecked Car

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Your car has been in an accident and you need to sell your wrecked car.

How do you sell your wrecked car? Where do you start? The experts at DamageMAX can tell you where NOT to start…

Don't start with Kelley Blue Book - KBB's values are inflated specifically for Auto Dealers to use on window stickers for their used vehicle inventory. Kelley is notorious for very high retail figures that the dealer can discount deeply and make the customer feel better about the purchase price (like they got a better deal). Consider this…would you PAY Kelley Blue Book Price for a used car on a dealers lot? No! Then why would you ask Kelley Blue Book for your used car? Why emulate a process that you seek to avoid? Start high & work down? Car dealers get a bad rap for this same exact sales tactic but the average everyday person presumes to resort to the same strategy?

Folks the process is broken and due for an overhaul…

NADA Retail is more realistic and a guidebook that utilizes transactional data that comes from New Car Dealers in the US. That said, NEVER use retail as a starting point for pricing any damaged vehicle because that vehicle will never be CLEAN again, nor will it be RETAIL material.

CARFAX will show vehicle history that the vehicle has been in an accident. This is called STIGMA history and it is indeed derogatory.

Car Dealers will not want your vehicle for trade-in, and they will unfortunately avoid giving you a trade-in figure at all costs. They will have no choice but to tell you it is better to sell on your own, because the number they are forced to give you will be so low, you will most likely leave the dealership incensed. Is this the dealers fault? No. Did they treat you unfairly? Absolutely not. Your vehicle is no longer worth what it was after a collision and it never will be. No matter how much you owe, or how attached you are to your car, it's worth at least 30% less after the repairs. This is proof that DIMINISHED VALUE exists and can be substantiated in every state.

Whether your wrecked vehicle is repaired or not, the best way to trade-in the vehicle is with a firm offer from DamageMAX – the damaged vehicle experts. Our Clean-Break TIP (Trade-in Program) lets you walk away from your wrecked car and ride today in a new vehicle at any new or used vehicle dealer in the USA!

It's your right not to repair your vehicle. You may request the settlement check and not repair the vehicle. If you wrecked your car and simply just don't feel comfortable driving the car again, please consider selling or trading-in your damaged vehicle to DamageMAX. DamageMAX will buy your wreck and you keep the insurance check and ride today in a new car!
