This video presents advice on the precautions of buying a salvage van. If you’re looking for repairable salvage vans for sale, you first need to figure out what you want. Do you want a cargo or a passenger van? Do you have a specific model in mind? The next thing to consider is whether buying a salvage title vehicle is right for your needs.
A salvage title means the vehicle was damaged beyond repair. The damage could have been caused by an accident or vandalism, but regardless of the reason, the van was deemed unfit for use by an insurance company. Salvage vans are typically accident vehicles with at least 75% damage sustained.
If you are looking for used vans and are not concerned with saving money on your premiums or resale value, buying repairable salvage vans for sale can make sense. However there are risks involved, but you can reduce the risk of purchasing a bad van. Scrutinize the van for signs of structural damage or poor repairs from previous accidents. Look for mismatched paint colors, dents, and dings. You may also need to call your insurance and find out if they cover salvage vans.
