Is it possible to purchase all of the damaged car parts that insurance companies collect?
"I'm curious what the companies do with all of the damaged car parts and if I can buy them in bulk. I want to use the parts for my own projects and I'm hoping to get a discount."
“The car insurance companies don’t actually receive any of the car parts from damaged vehicles. Instead, the repair shops handle them.
If you’re interested in purchasing these parts, you can ask local repair shops if they’re willing to sell to you or you can look for local or national companies that deal salvage parts.”

Do all types of car insurance cover bullet holes?
I was getting gas on a recent road trip. As I entered the gas station to pay, I heard some loud pops. When I went outside, I noticed my vehicle had been struck by three bullets. There was no damage to the mechanical aspects of the vehicle, but cosmetically, it's just not the same. Do all types of car insurance cover bullet holes?
