I Just Wrecked My Car with a Lien on It!

Joseph Coupal - Monday, October 28, 2013

Did you just wreck a car that you are still making payments on? Even if you get it repaired the car will never be worth what you have left to pay off. All is lost right? WRONG! You can take that insurance check and instead of getting it repaired put it towards the loan and sell your car to cover the rest!

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 24, 2013

Your “old reliable” broke down and you were focused on fixing it rather then selling it. You had grand plans to get up early on Saturdays and start the repairs, but the days turned into weeks- weeks turned into months and months into years and you still haven’t gotten around to it. Now you’ve decided to sell it, but who is going to buy a car that’s been sitting in your back yard for years?

I Let My Registration Expire; Can I still Sell My Car?

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 18, 2013

A very common question we get here at DamageMAX is… can you still sell a car if the registration has expired. YES YOU CAN! The registration is something nice to have if you want to drive around and not get pulled over, but if you stopped driving it and its been sitting in your garage you don’t need to renew before you sell.

Can I Part Out My Wrecked Car if I don’t have the Title?

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 17, 2013

You just wrecked your car and you are still making payments on it. It no longer drives and you owe too much to walk away and get something new. You also can’t afford to get the car fixed and decide to sell the usable parts that are still worth something. STOP RIGHT THERE. Parting out a car that has a lien on it is an ILLEGAL practice known as “conversion”. You are greatly diminishing the value of something that you do not own. You wouldn’t go into your neighbor’s house and sell his stuff without telling him right? This is the same premise as “parting out” a car that does not belong to you. This is also something you need to watch out for online too. If you are looking for car parts, do not EVER buy from someone who is “still paying and will continue to pay” on the car. You are buying STOLEN parts.

Don’t EVER Buy a Car with a Salvage Title!

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 16, 2013

You need a new car. You bop around town and visit the used car dealerships. Just when you are about to give up, you spot a late model with low mileage for a rock bottom price! You waive over one of the salesmen to find out why it’s so low. He tells you that the car was in an accident and has been rebuilt. He assures you that the damage was minimal but the salvage title is kind of a formality and “an insurance thing”. Surely this all sounds good and it was fully repaired – now ready for a new owner. You should buy it right? WRONG! Don’t EVER buy a car with a salvage title. It takes A LOT of damage for an insurance company to brand a vehicle “salvage” and even if it is repaired the value of the vehicle takes a hit of 60% or more. Not to mention the lingering issues that could remain from the effects of the accident and a possible structural issues.

The most common reason for a salvage title brand is the insurance carrier protecting itself from future liability. That salvage title is a RED FLAG to alert you that the damage was EXTENSIVE and was disproportionately high in relation to the retail value of the vehicle. No matter how good the deal looks, you will lose money on resale if the vehicle has a salvage title. DamageMAX recommends that you RUN from salvage title vehicles.

No One has to Buy a Car that’s been in an Accident, But You have to Sell One

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 15, 2013

You just bought a new car and are looking to sell your old car online. It was recently in an accident but still runs and drives. You put it on a few websites and the offers don’t come. You wait a about a week and still no one has even called about it. Selling a car that’s been in an accident is harder then you thought. Is there anyone that makes selling a wrecked car easy?

Towing & Storage Yards - "Your Neighborhood Loan Sharks"

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 10, 2013

Today I watched another would be DamageMAX customer get duped by a storage yard in Boston, MA. He had a 2006 Mazda 6 with low mileage that was in a wreck. Unfortunately he dropped his collision coverage shortly before the wreck and his vehicle would cost far more to fix than he & his wife were willing to spend on an 8 year old vehicle. The good news is, the vehicle was worth quite a bit of money damaged, even though it was not drivable…

When we first started our conversation, Bob was on a mission to get the best price he could for what was left of his car. He thought he had lots of time to shop the internet and hit several companies including ours. Our first question was "where is the vehicle being stored?". The purpose of this question is purely for the benefit of the consumer (Bob) because we know the storage yard will always get their pound of flesh. We are always relieved when the customer tells us that the vehicle is at their home or some other "friendly" location where a daily storage tab is not amassing. Bob told us that the vehicle was stored at a body shop that tows cars and that he knows the owner who assured him "not to worry about storage". This is an IMMEDIATE red flag to DamageMAX because we see hundreds of customers each month with scenarios exactly like this one where the shop turns on the customer and hits them with a bill when they try to remove the vehicle from the property.

So Bob ended his week-long pursuit of getting top dollar for his damaged Mazda 6 with DamageMAX being the highest bidder! He figured he had lots of time to shop for the best deal and accrued 7 days of additional storage charges, unwittingly.

So here's the punchline…the Tow Yard hit Bob with a $700 storage bill and forced him to sell his car to them for far below the price that DamageMAX offered. Bob got less money after all the work he invested and all the haggling because he let his guard down and did not make a quick decision. If your car is wrecked and in a Body Shop / Towing / Impound facility, you are always getting charged. There is "rarely" an exception and if the shop that has possession of your car, they have control of it and it is a paycheck whether or not they get a chance to fix the vehicle. It's pretty sad that shops look to offset a lost repair opportunity by gouging an unsuspecting consumer. Especially, after that consumer has been told not to worry about storage charges. What they should say is what they mean…"I promise not to charge you if you do exactly what pleases me"!

State Farm says ‘We don’t do that!’

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 08, 2013

We had a customer this week who had wrecked her vehicle and wanted to know what her options were. A certified DamageMAX agent instructed her instead of getting the car repaired with the insurance check to ask if she can keep the repair check, sell her car to DamageMAX “as-is” and go buy a new vehicle. The customer liked the sound of that but her State Farm claims person said she could not do that. Wrong! It is your car not your insurance companies. You pay your premiums and you can do whatever you want with that insurance check if you ever get into an accident.
