Are the vehicles on this website that have only a dent or scratch and are priced at $1,000 or $2,000 really in good condition to purchase?

Each vehicle has unique damage, with most coming from insurance companies and classified as salvage due to the extent of their damage. We encourage you to carefully review each listing and contact us at (215) 289-0300 if you have any questions or need a second opinion. For more information, visit our “Reasons for Salvaging” guide.

Can the extent of the vehicle’s damage be clarified?

Unfortunately, due to the nature of auto auctions, the auction houses themselves do not conduct thorough inspections or mechanical evaluations of the vehicles on offer. Similarly, as we at RideSafely operate remotely and do not have the capability to be physically present at all auction locations, we are unable to provide detailed assessments or guarantees regarding the extent of damage on any vehicle. It’s important for our customers to understand that all vehicles are sold as-is, and we strongly encourage doing as much research as possible, including reviewing available photographs and vehicle history reports, to make an informed decision before placing a bid.
