I Just Wrecked My Car, What Do I Do?

Joseph Coupal - Friday, July 12, 2013

If you just wrecked you vehicle and don’t know what to do next, DON’T PANIC! The first thing you need to do is get it out of the storage yard. Storage yards charge daily fees and if your car sits there long enough you will end up having to hand over the title and relinquish the vehicle as payment. Once the vehicle is in a STORAGE FEE FREE environment, check and see if the engine is still running. If so, there is still value left in your car! If the miles are not too high, the engine and the transmission are the most expensive and most desirable components and will bring a “pretty penny”.

DamageMAX advises against listing your damaged vehicle for sale on Craigslist.com. The site is free which is a benefit, but loaded with predators and scammers that lay in wait for “first –timers” like you that they can take advantage of in many ways! Additionally, Craigslist does not value damaged vehicles and most buyers wont even touch one with existing collision damage, nevermind if it’s been in an accident and repaired previously! Your best option is to call DamageMAX today at 888-629-3127 or visit DamageMAX.com for a FAST, FREE, NO OBLIGATION quote on your wrecked vehicle. DamageMAX offers top dollar on your wrecked vehicle and will even pick it up and handle any title paperwork FREE of charge.

DamageMAX never adds any hidden fees or charges – ever!

Engine or Transmission Bad?

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 31, 2013

Don't spend thousands fixing a worn out vehicle,
sell it to DamageMAX as-is and get yourself a new ride!

If your car is older than 2005 or has more than 85,000 miles, chances are its worth more "as-is" than the cost of the repair itself!

When a vehicle is sold for parts, the most sought after components are the engine and the transmission. First off, they make the car "move" and give the vehicle it's value. As a rule, a vehicle that can be used for transportation is always worth more than a vehicle that will be sold for parts. When the engine or transmission go bad, your out-of-pocket investment is several thousand dollars just to make it worth "average" book value. If your vehicle has a bad engine or a bad transmission, you can throw "book value" out the window – its a parts car!

If you don't owe any money on the vehicle you still have equity, even if it's inoperable. Just because it doesn't drive, doesn't mean it's not worth anything. DamageMAX pays top dollar for damaged, broken and inoperable vehicles anywhere. Here's a great example:

2003 Nissan Murano SL – bad transmission

Value of your car with bad transmission = $0
Cost of used Transmission = $3000
Value after repair = ?
DamageMAX Purchase Price = $3,100

EASY CHOICE! Sell your car to DamageMAX!

DamageMAX buys broken vehicles for top dollar and we can help get your last bit of equity from that older high mileage car.

Call 888 629-2137 or visit damagemax.com for a fast, free, no obligation price quote.

Car is Totaled?

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 19, 2013

Take Full Insurance Settlement, Don't Retain the Vehicle!

Many auto insurers encourage their policyholders to keep their vehicles even after declared a total loss. One major insurers boasts that nearly 25% of their total loss claims result in the salvage being "retained" by the policyholder. It works like this - policyholder gets check for the full value of the claim and then purchases the vehicle at a reduced (salvage) value from their insurer. Seems like a great idea for the insurer and the policyholder, right?

Wrong!

Many insurers are under the impression that there is "goodwill" associated with the owner- retained option since the policyholder did not want to scrap the car. Policyholders sometimes like this option because they are attached emotionally to the car or can't afford to replace it even with a full settlement. What policyholders often don't anticipate is the impact of a salvage title on their car's value - the title brand, but it will reduce the value by up to 50%!

Additionally, many policyholders believe they can repair the vehicle themselves based what seems to be an inflated damage estimate. However, many policyholders end up abandoning the project and liquidating the dismantled vehicle at a loss. Or, they fix the vehicle inadequately and drive the vehicle with sub-standard repairs.

There are success stories with owner-retained vehicles, but more often than not the policyholder ends up dissatisfied. When a policyholder asks DamageMAX to bid on their owner retained vehicle we decline to make an offer. Instead, we encourage the policyholder to take the full settlement and shop for a new vehicle.

However, many policyholders are in a more difficult situation - their vehicle is wrecked but not totaled and they can't or won't repair it. In this case DamageMAX will buy the policyholder's vehicle AS-IS.

Don't be taken, call DamageMAX for a fast, free, no obligation quote. It only takes a few minutes of your time to get MAX value for your Damaged Car. Please call 888-629-2137 or visit http://damagemax.com/contact-us.htm.

DamageMax is on LinkedIN

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Thanks for viewing the DamageMAX LinkedIN site. DamageMAX is the leading buyer of damaged, inoperable and problem vehicles.

Our goal is simple: change the paradigm in auto body collision repair and damaged vehicle replacement. DamageMAX is changing the way consumers think about auto accidents and collision repair. Just like broken household appliances are replaced instead of repaired, the new economics of collision repair now dictate that many broken vehicles should be sold instead of repaired.

DamageMAX buys damaged, wrecked and mechanically distressed vehicles anywhere in the United States. It's all done virtually with no physical inspections. We work off digital images & estimates (when available) and a brief physical description from the owner of the vehicle. We buy any vehicle, anywhere regardless of condition or value. We also provide guidance to consumers so they can make informed decisions.

70,000 people wreck their vehicles in the US each day - almost 1 every second. Each one of those people is unprepared for an accident and they have no idea what to do or who to call. They are victim to a process they have never experienced and have no control over! Half of these drivers will be under-insured, un-insured or at fault and will get no reimbursement for repairs. To add insult to injury, their vehicle will most likely be towed to an unsavory impound yard and held hostage for storage at predatory rates--most tow yards will only take cash as a form of payment.

DamageMAX is a game-changer!

We help people make fast, informed decisions about their damaged vehicle and get them some financial relief. For decades, most people just handed the title of their vehicle over to the storage yard or body shop and walked away. Most damaged vehicles are worth more than you think if you can make a quick decision and get it moved before the storage charges mount.

So the bottom line is…

  • DamageMAX gives consumers cash for damaged vehicles they don’t have the desire or means to repair
  • DamageMAX helps consumers deal with vehicle storage/impound yards
  • DamageMAX helps consumers trade their damaged car if you owe more than it's worth
  • DamageMAX can helps consumers find a good repair shop

Please let your colleagues and stakeholders know about DamageMAX. Our customers are raving fans and our unparalleled track record speaks for itself.
