Answering 5 FAQs about Online Auctions featuring Salvage Cars for Sale

The popularity of online car auctions is increasing by the day, as they give people an easy way to buy any car they want without stressing their finances. But as the concept is still growing on people, potential buyers often have a lot of questions and concerns. While the perks of cars auction online are simply unquestionable, this blog post clears the smokescreen by answering five frequently asked questions about online auctions featuring salvage cars for sale. Read on.

1. Are the cars in working condition?

The inventories of the websites that auction salvage cars for sale have a mix of both. Though deemed as “total loss” by insurance companies, some of the cars are in working condition, and if they are, it is usually specified in the description provided on the website.

2. Do the cars come with keys?

Although most of the vehicles sold in online auctions do not have keys, buyers can easily get the keys made by contacting the manufacturer or hiring a locksmith. On a lucky day, you can find some vehicles with keys too, and this information will also be provided on the website.

3. Can I inspect the cars before buying?

Yes, most of the leading auction houses allow potential buyers to inspect the vehicles or send someone to inspect them, before buying. Inspections, however, are usually an optional paid service, for which buyers have to pay a nominal amount.

4. Does the listing have any clean title cars?

Yes, in addition to featuring cars with salvage title, most of the leading websites in the domain also feature cars with other titles including clean. Other titles listed include police seized, bank repossessed, and flooded.

5. How do I get a repair cost estimate?

As stated earlier, the platforms hosting cars auction online give you the option to opt for a paid inspection visit. If you want to get an estimate of their repair cost involved in the vehicle you have shortlisted, simple hire a service professional who can take up the task for you.
