Trading Your Damaged Vehicle

Trading your Damaged Vehicle is fast and easy with the DamageMAX Clean Break Trade-in program.

How it works:

  1. Contact us via phone or email and ask for a quote
  2. Send us your collision estimate via email to estimates@damagemax.com
  3. We’ll send you a guaranteed purchase quote for your damaged vehicle good for 7 days
  4. If you accept, we can pick-up your vehicle and get it moved to storage free environment
  5. You now have the freedom to shop for a new vehicle with cash in hand without the pressure of having to make a snap decision

If you have an outstanding loan balance, the dealer you select will be able to pay that off as part of your new or used vehicle replacement transaction. We provide you with a Bill of Sale and DamageMAX Purchase Agreement to prove that your vehicle is pre-sold. Your dealer will assign an actual cash value (ACV) to your trade and potentially give you more allowance + discount. Since you will be trading your vehicle for the purposes of the transaction, you will benefit from tax savings on the cash difference.

For example, DamageMAX values a wrecked 2005 Honda Accord EX 4 Cyl for the trade-in at $3,000 - see how it saves you money on a new 2012 Nissan Altima:
