Is Keeping Your Car After A Total Loss A Good Idea?

In some cases, it is a good idea to keep your car after a total loss.

If you get into a car crash after an accident, there’s a good chance your car insurance company will declare the vehicle a total loss. In most cases, they will assume ownership of the vehicle and cut you a check for the cash value of the car minus your deductible.

However, you have the option to keep your car and sell it yourself for a profit after a crash. You may be able to make more money for your car than your insurance would have given you.

If you believe your insurance company is undervaluing your car, it is a good idea to try and keep the car so you can sell it yourself. This is often the case if your car is in good condition or you believe it still has a relatively good resale value for a wrecked car.

How To Keep Your Totaled Car After A Wreck

To keep your totaled car after an accident, you must contact your insurance company and let them know that you want to keep the car. In most states, they will transfer the title over to you as a salvage title.

You will still be paid by your insurance company if you ask to keep the car after a wreck. In addition to subtracting your deductible from the check, the insurance company will also subtract how much they expected to profit from the vehicle if sold at an auction. This is typically between $300 and $500, depending on the vehicle and its location.

Once you receive the check and the vehicle’s title from your insurance company, you can begin looking for places to sell your wrecked car.

The Best Places To Sell A Wrecked Car

There are lots of places that you can sell a wrecked car for profit. However, the best place depends on your goal.

For instance, it is relatively simple and quick to sell your car to a junkyard or scrap yard. However, they typically will only offer you the scrap metal value of your car, which means you may not make any more than the insurance company would have made.

Another option is to sell your wrecked car privately to an individual. In some cases, depending on your vehicle’s make and model as well as your location, this is the best way to earn the most money for your wreck. However, you must schedule times for potential buyers to come see the vehicle. Additionally, you and the buyer must negotiate who will cover the cost of towing the vehicle once it is sold.

The easiest way to sell your car quickly and for fair market value is to go online. Online buyers can offer you quick quotes for your car within minutes, without leaving your home. They typically include free towing so you don’t have to worry about transporting your vehicle, and in many cases you can get better prices than you would at junkyards.
