Testimonials from Real Clients

I was skeptical of Damaged Cars because it was a company I was not familiar with and they pay with a check which I was uncomfortable with in a world where everyone is trying to screw you but after a lot of research and speaking with their kind reps I saw that it was a legit company with phenomenal reviews and A+ BBB rating.

Damagedcars gave me a fair price for my wrecked car. I called for an estimate and in less than a week the car was towed and a check was in my hand. A great service and I highly recommend it for anyone that needs to sell a wrecked car quickly.
