How can I buy a wrecked car directly from an insurance company?
I've heard that you can buy a wrecked car directly from some insurance companies—I have a little experience with car repair, and I'm on a very tight budget, so I figure this is my best chance of being able to buy a car. I'm just not completely sure how to go about it. How can I buy a totaled car directly from an insurance company?
- Call a tow yard near you
- Check your local paper
- Look online—these days, many auto auctions are fully virtual!
- Also cheap
- Easier to repair (although you’ll want to check to make sure it’s in good condition before you buy)
- Easier to get insured
