Purchase price can vary widely, according to many factors

When it comes time to sell your damaged or salvage car, you may find yourself searching for information about how much your second hand car could be worth. The answer is that the purchase price can vary widely, according to many factors that will be assessed by your salvage vehicle buyer.

At 1800 Salvage, we offer fast and competitive valuation on a wide range of second hand, damaged, and salvaged vehicles. Read on to find out how your salvage or damaged vehicle will be assessed for a purchase price offer.

Car Condition

The condition of your second hand or salvage car will be the biggest factor in its valuation price. The car buyer will assess the condition, status, and damage of your vehicle, as well as the odometer and car history.

Make and Model

The make and model of your salvage vehicle will greatly affect its purchase price. This is due to its availability and demand within the market. It is important to make sure you work with a salvage car buyer that purchases your brand of vehicle.
