Some salvage lots (a.k.a. junkyards) sell pre-owned vehicles that are still drivable. In many cases, these automobiles can be separated into two groups: those that have what is known as a “clear title”, and those that have what is called a “salvage title.” If you plan to buy a pre-owned vehicle from a salvage lot, it is important to know the difference between these types of car titles.
What is a Clear Title?
A clear title (a.k.a. clean title) indicates that there are no outstanding payments to be made on the vehicle. A clear title also indicates that the vehicle has never been reported as being heavily damaged or stolen. One of the easiest ways to ensure that an automobile has a clear title is to request a carfax report for the vehicle by visiting www.carfax.com and following the instructions.
What is a Salvage Title?
A salvage title indicates that the vehicle has been seriously damaged and/or assessed as a total financial loss by an insurance provider that paid an insurance claim for the automobile. Buying a used car that has a salvage title can be quite risky, as it could easily lack dependability due to the conditions that resulted in it being awarded a salvage title instead of a clear title.
