When i buy a car that says “Damage type: Water Flood”, does it mean that i can not fix it? Do most of the customers that get those kind of cars are able to fix them or they just use them for Parts?

Water/Flood vehicles can be fixed. Please be very aware that depending on extend of the water damage/water level in the vehicle, parts such as engine, electrical etc may be severely damaged. Most of the flood vehicles would not sell as “Run and Drive” just to prevent engine from starting in the case it may have water in it. Read more

How much it will cost to repair a hail damage at a Hyundai car? Can we pay this reparation at you or can you recommend somebody? My understanding is that I cannot registered a car with a salvage title for hail in MD (I am a student and just arrived here in US)

It would really depend on the extend of the damage. Usually involves doing body work and repaint. You would not be able to register any salvage car (doesn’t matter what damage type is) until you do reconstruction on the vehicle. You would need it fix it and made it road safe and have it inspected by either your local police station or DMV (depending on your location).

Unfortunately, we do not have any body shops we work with directly, so you would have to find someone local in your area. Read more
