Why Inspecting A Used Car For Water Damage Is Important

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have made way through the states, leaving many used cars damaged by floods. It is estimated that over 300,000 claims will be filed with insurance companies for flood damaged vehicles. As it is not illegal to sell these vehicles, there is a good chance many of these vehicles will end up in the used car market through auctions and salvage yards. Considering some loop holes in the reporting agencies, there is a good chance some of these cars will end up in our market without being titled as flood damaged.

Things To Keep In Mind When Inspecting A Used Car For Flood Damage

There is no doubt that some of these flood vehicles will end up in used car lots across the country. It is best to always buy from a reputable used car dealer, but if you are unsure or have any doubts, inspecting a used car with a professional is always a good idea.
