Every state in the US has different policies and regulations when it comes to salvage cars. Some even may bar you from legally driving a salvage vehicle or even purchase it before it is considered roadworthy by an authorized inspector.
When you are in the market for a fixer-upper, it is worth it to bring along a trustworthy mechanic with you. A salvage car could look virtually undamaged but in reality, be suffering from irreparable damage. Only a thorough inspection by a car expert can allow you to accurately assess the extent of damage a salvage titled car suffers from and whether it is a wise idea to buy it or not.
To make the process of re-titling and registration easier, make sure to obtain bills of sale for every major component you purchased while restoring the salvage car. Not only will it serve as proof of complete ownership for the vehicle when you go for its registration but also save you headaches when it comes to passing inspections for re-titling.
