When the torrential downpour they called “Sandy” tore through the Northeast, it wreaked unprecedented havoc on a very large and populated area of the United States, destroying buildings and ruining thousands of vehicles. MSN reported that over 230,000 vehicle were damaged during the storm, with some of the cars being submerged under flood waters, while others were damaged by falling trees or other debris. Suddenly thousands of people were in need of at least one replacement car. Unfortunately, many of the same people were also without paychecks because a large number of the businesses they had been working for were also destroyed during Sandy. It was a horrible dilemma. One way some people were able to solve this problem was to purchase inexpensive salvage cars through SalvageReseller.com, which is a Copart registered broker. Of course, there is a bit of irony involved here as many of the vehicles that these people had owned probably ended up as salvage cars after being destroyed by the storm. However, these people know that salvage cars at auction aren’t just limited to heavily damaged, stationary vehicles. Many cars at the auction are older, slightly damaged vehicles that can be easily repaired. In addition, buyers can also sometimes find repossessed cars in excellent working order on SalvageReseller.com. By choosing to purchase repairable salvage cars in relatively good condition, these people were often able to save thousands of dollars. While you hopefully will never have to locate an inexpensive vehicle in a pinch like this, it is at least good to know that you can find cheap, drivable salvage vehicles at auction if you ever needed one.
