Saying goodbye to your beloved car is never easy. However, there are times it becomes inevitable and you just have to part ways. Unknown to many people, there are a number of things you can do to your car in the event that it is totaled. It is good to know these options so that when you find yourself with a totaled or a wrecked car, you already know what to do with it.
Here are some of your options with a totaled car:
Following an accident, your insurer or the insurer of the at-fault driver will value the car and make you an offer based on the price of the car, while also considering the total cost of restoring the motor to its condition just before the accident. When a car is totaled, it doesn’t have to look like a burnt out shell worth nothing but the value of the SCRAP METAL. One option you have is to accept the insurance valuation of the cost of the car & accept the money and let them retain the ownership of the car.
If, after a collision, you are still able to drive the car or TOW it to a repair shop, you may want to keep it. If the car simply suffered some cosmetic damages and was totaled, there is no need to let it go if you feel that you can fix the damages without breaking a leg for them. Simply get the repairs done and continue enjoying the use of your car.
There are certain minor damages that might make a car to be totaled. For instance, a hailstorm may damage the body of the car and leave it looking really ugly and this may be enough to get the car totaled. In such a condition, the car won’t have very nice looks but still will be fully operable. If your car is totaled under such circumstances, you may decide to forgo the cosmetics and continue using it just as before.
Though you may not get a lot of money than your insurer would have given you if you decide to Sell the Car to Dismantlers, it is always a good approach if you need quick cash for the car. ‘Prime Auto Dismantlers’ in Sydney are ready to give you top offers up to $9,999 if you have such a car you would wish to get rid of.
