What is vehicle salvage?

Vehicle salvage refers to buying and reusing vehicles that have significant damage. They reuse their parts, or fix them up and resell them.

Usually, the vehicles they buy are insurance company write-offs. They help by removing the car, truck or motorbike from its premises. Then, you get money for its recyclable value.
