DamageMax Informational Videos Featuring the Car-Diologist Released to the Public

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 01, 2013

DJ Harrington, renowned collision industry veteran releases informational videos to assist consumers in making decisions about their damaged vehicles.

ATLANTA AND NEW YORKDJ Harrington's long awaited informational video spots for DamageMAX are being released to the public today on DamageMAX.com and YouTube.

Dr. Harrington represents DamageMAX at industry events, in advertising campaigns and on the internet. Known as the "CAR-diologist", Dr. Harrington has over 37 years of automotive industry experience.

Dr. Harrington chose to represent DamageMAX because of its many benefits to damaged vehicle owners: "For years I have worked with car dealers and body shops--9 times out of 10 they unable to assist consumers that can't afford to, or simply don't want to repair their wrecked vehicle. DamageMAX solves this problem for the consumer as well has collision repair facilities and automotive retailers."

Not only does the CAR-diologist advise consumers when to sell their damaged car to DamageMAX, he also guides the viewer through scenarios when it does make sense to repair their wrecked vehicle. Based on vehicle model, year, equity position and prior history, DJ objectively advises damaged vehicle owners of their best options. For example, DJ informs viewers about a collision industry secret - that you don't have to repair your car just because a repair check was provided in an insurance settlement. You can take the repair check from your insurer and the check DamageMAX gives you for your wrecked vehicle and buy a new car.

Dr. Harrington stresses the best short and long-term solutions for vehicle owners facing tough decisions regarding whether to repair or sell their damaged vehicle. For example, selling a vehicle with a "Bad CarFax" can result in up to a 16% reduction in selling price - and this is after spending the money to repair the wrecked car. Repairing a damaged vehicle may seem like the best decision because it is cheaper than replacing the vehicle. Dr. Harrington stresses that it may be cheaper in the short run but can cost a lot more in the long run because of increased depreciation associated with the accident, post-repair.

Dr. Harrington will promote DamageMAX's ubiquitous slogan, "DamageMAX will buy your wreck and you keep the repair check." He will release new informational videos for DamageMAX throughout 2013, exploring new topics to assist consumers in each spot.

How CARFAX kills Wrecked Vehicle Resale Value (WVRV)

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Vehicle history reports such as CarFax and AutoCheck are a critical part of the used vehicle transaction. If you are selling a vehicle with a "Bad CarFax" you can expect to see up to a 16% reduction in selling price - and this is after you've sunk the money into repairing your wrecked car!

Nearly a quarter of a billion (250 million) vehicle history reports are purchased every year in the United States. That's one for every car on the road. However, that statistic is somewhat misleading - the average car for sale has 4-5 vehicle history reports pulled - by multiple potential buyers (consumers and dealers). An independent consumer study indicated that 3 out of 4 used car buyers bought a vehicle history report as part of their research.

What do these incredible statistics mean? Even if you repair your car after a collision, there is no way to hide the accident from potential buyers. Even if the car was repaired to your manufacturer's specifications, its value is impaired permanently because virtually every buyer will know it was wrecked and they assume the worst. This is called STIGMA history - a scarlet letter for the wrecked vehicle owner.

It is time for a PARADIGM SHIFT on handling your vehicle post accident. Just as you would not repair a broken television, clock or microwave, don't repair your wrecked vehicle. Sell it to DamageMAX and let us worry about what to do with your wrecked car. We buy damaged vehicles every day and specialize in your once-in-a-lifetime problem.

It 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 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!
