Liberty Mutual’s New Vehicle Replacement Program – What a Great Idea!

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 20, 2014

By now you have seen one of Liberty Mutuals New Vehicle Replacement ads….if not here are links to both spots:

http://www.ispot.tv/ad/7yvo/liberty-mutual-new-car-replacement

http://www.ispot.tv/ad/7yPK/liberty-mutual-new-car-replacement-and-accident-forgiveness

We love the concept but it begs the question; why only for vehicles less than one year old?

Liberty Mutual obviously gets an “A” for the idea, but an “F” for execution because only a small percentage of the vehicles on US roads are less than 12 months old. If you read the disclaimer in their ad which appears for roughly 5 seconds of the spot, its for new or current model year vehicles only. This gets them a bunch of exposure on the marketing side because consumers will check in with Liberty Mutual for a rate, but very few people will actually be in position to use the new car replacement option because is new car buyers only. What about the other 230 million people on US roads ? What if they want a replacement program? What option is available to them?

While no insurance company offers a vehicle replacement program for a used vehicle, there are several companies that buy damaged cars “as-is” and allow the consumer to keep their repair check and go get a new vehicle. This isn’t a true replacement program, or a total loss, but its the next best thing. In fact, many insurance carriers offer a hybrid of this program “off the radar” for their best customers. DamageMAX.com launched it’s Courtesy Total Loss Program 18 months ago and currently accepts customer referrals from 3 major insurance carriers.

If you just wrecked your car and you want to get something new, keep the repair check and call DamageMAX for a free, no obligation quote. We buy vehicles “as-is, where-is” all over the Continental United States.

Who Buys Wrecked Cars?

Joseph Coupal - Sunday, July 14, 2013

You just wrecked your car and decide to sell it instead of fixing it up. You go to the dealership but they wont take it on trade. They tell you it’s best to sell on your own. You go to that big used car lot but they wont take it. It seems the only place for your wrecked or damaged car is the scrap yard and they specialize in rock bottom prices. Surely there has to be someone who will buy your wrecked vehicle and pay above scrap? Well DamageMAX is that company! Damagemax buys ANY and ALL wrecked vehicles and will even pick it up for FREE.

You just wrecked your vehicle?

How to deal with the storage / tow yard

You just wrecked your car… your vehicle is blocking traffic, leaking fluids everywhere and the rubberneckers are glaring at you - some honking as they steer around accident debris and speed off. You wish you could do the same, but you have no choice but to wait for the police to come and sort things out. You are now a victim of “the process” and have no control over what happens next.

Upon arrival at the scene, the police officer will call for medical assistance (if necessary) and dispatch tow equipment to clear all vehicles from the roadway. He is going to follow procedure which means the towing company is pre-selected by the jurisdiction over that thoroughfare at the scene of the accident.

The police do not care about who picks up your car, where it is towed or how much it costs. One thing for certain, they are not going to wait for AAA and your tow bill will be 3 to 4 times what you would normally pay, in fact, the rates may not even be regulated. In some cities the average tow & storage bill is close to $1,000.

Unscrupulous impound yards and body shops often pay tow truck drivers a bounty to deliver them wrecked cars. Once the car is there the impound yard or body shop begins charging daily storage - anywhere from $20 - $75 per day plus an administrative fee (blue sky for services not rendered). We have seen administrative fees as high as $175 tacked on to tow & storage bills which in many jurisdictions is illegal!

All these charges can build quickly and some yards will demand “cash only” to get your vehicle released. In some cities like Chicago, this is quite common. If you can't pay, they demand the title for your vehicle!

Body shops will often waive or reduce this charge if you repair the vehicle at their facility. Seems like a nice gesture, right? Yes and no. If the body shop is reputable and performs quality repairs, you should be fine. If not, they will hold the storage and tow charges over your head to bully you into repairing the car there, even if you don't feel comfortable with the shop.

You may not even feel comfortable repairing the car. You just want to sell it and get a new vehicle. If this is the case, you must act quickly to stop the storage charges. The faster you can get your car out of storage, the more you save –especially if your insurance company wont cover these costs. DamageMAX will buy your car, pay off the storage/tow charges and you keep the insurance check. We can't help you if you don't call though. The faster you call us, the more money that will be in your pocket.

It’s your right not to repair your vehicle. You may request the settlement check and elect not to repair your vehicle. If you wrecked your car and simply 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!
