Features of the purchase of a damaged car

Such a purchase will cost 30-40% cheaper, despite the innovations in the legislation on customs clearance in 2020. The price reduction is due to the fact that the sale of damaged cars is carried out through open insurance auctions.

The insurance company estimates the cost of repairs. If the amount is significant (more than 50% of the amount for a new car), then the sale is cheaper. It is important to get the maximum amount of damage information from the seller in order to understand what problems will need to be fixed and the cost of repair work and spare parts must be preliminarily laid.
