Why Sell Instead of Repair

Being in the salvage business offers us the opportunity to buy and sell all types of items.  We specialize in repairable salvage of all types including:  Cars, Boats, Trucks, Heavy Equipment, and Motorcycles.  In addition, we handle some non-vehicle salvage such as furniture and electronics.  So yes, we are a full service salvage company.

About 90% of the time, we help owners of late model vehicles get the most money from their wreck.  In some cases, it may be possible to buy a new vehicle faster than repairing the wrecked vehicle.  With your insurance repair check and Farbe’s buying the salvage, we can in some cases put the owner in a new car with money left over.  We can arrange pickup from wherever the vehicle is located:  a tow yard , automotive body shop, or collision repair center.

When there is a collision and you are without insurance or have only liability insurance, we can help you through this difficult time.  We can advise you on the steps to make a smooth transition.  Because of our long standing in this business, we have the expertise and experience with many unusual situations.

Some things to know:

    • You have the right to decide on whether or not to repair your damaged vehicle.

    • Depending on if there is a loan involved, it may be to your benefit to repair your vehicle.

    • If your car is flooded and repaired, some states require disclosure when sold.  This means what you thought would be a clean title is now a water damaged title, and this changes the value of your vehicle.

    • License plates must be turned in before dropping your insurance.

Check with your DMV before letting the insurance company repair your flooded vehicle.
