Before offering a price for the car, the buyer should find out why the car was salvaged and what kind of damage was sustained. Cars can sustain damage from various things such as natural disasters, car theft, car accidents and other scenarios. If a buyer finds out that a car sustained water damage and the damage is the cause of the salvaged title, one may want to keep looking for another car as there may be hidden and costly electrical damage. A car may have smoke damage which unfortunately results in a smell that may be hard to get rid of. However, theft cars can be good investments as long as the thief did not strip the car of accessories, interior, or wheels.
