It is devastating to deal with the aftermath of a van accident. Going through the hassle of working with insurance companies to figure out what to do next is stressful. And saying goodbye to your van for good is never easy. As a consumer, you have a lot of good options to choose when your van is completely totaled. Here are a few:
- Take the Money
Your insurer or the driver at fault will let you know the value of the vehicle after an auto accident. The company will decide whether or not to deem the van totaled once the company knows the value of the van and the cost to make all the necessary repairs. The company will write a check for the value of the van if it can’t be fixed or is not worth fixing.
- Keep the Van and Repair It
Your van might be smart to keep it if it can still be driven safely or towed to a repair shop. Make some necessary repairs on your own expense instead of filing a claim.
- Sell Your Van to a Junkyard
If you sell it to an auto salvage yard you can get Cash for Cars. Find a licensed junk van buyer who will tow your van for you for free and pays top dollar.
- Keep the Van But Do Not Repair It
Sometimes minor cosmetic defects on your van do not affect its performance. You can still drive a van if it has a dented hood and roof due to hail damage. Keep driving because cosmetic damage can cost a lot to repair.
- Donate the Van
Schedule a time with your local donation services to have your van towed for free. The company will sell the van parts to raise money for the charity. You will also get a tax deduction for the depreciated value.
- Keep the Van and Sell for Salvage
If you believe you can get more money for your van than your insurance company is offering to pay you then you can sell it to auto salvage yards.
Each of these options have their own pros and cons. If you are still confused what to do with your van then contact Paul Car Removal Sydney and our friendly staff will help you make a wise decision. We are leading Car Wreckers Sydney wide. Call Us at 0466 879 131.
