The first thing you must do is pick out the vehicle that you want to buy. It is good to have a budget in mind, as well as an idea of what you are a looking for in a vehicle.

You can also search online, using our donated cars page or looking up directories of local business for locations that have salvage cars.

 

As you would with any vehicle, you need to keep track of all the information you can regarding the vehicle. The documentation you have, including things like receipts must be kept safe and secure. These records should also show what changes and repairs were made to the vehicle. Along with documentation, be sure to take some photos of the vehicle itself. Photos can be used to show what repairs and replacements were made to the damaged areas of the vehicle. They can reduce the amount of paperwork for you and make the inspector’s job easier.
