A branded title means the vehicle was branded “salvage” at one point but was rebuilt to roadworthiness. A branded title vehicle must pass safety and anti-theft inspections and other state-mandated standards to return to the road.
A vehicle goes to a salvage yard after an insurance company has decided it will cost less to replace than to fix. The current market value of the cars and the estimates from local repair shops are the factors affecting the decisions made by the insurance companies. If the vehicle’s repair cost is 50% greater than its current market value, it should go to a salvage auction.
NOT all wrecked cars can be “salvaged,” and NOT all salvage cars are severely damaged. Even if the insurance companies deem them “totaled” or a “total loss.”
A vehicle will carry the salvage title after the damage, but once the car is restored, the title changes to “branded” or “rebuilt.” This “brand” has nothing to do with the current condition of the automobile.
Regardless of how great the car runs and looks after having the damage removed and returned to new, the title will remain branded forever.
Branded title cars sell for lower prices despite being professionally rebuilt, reconditioned, and rigorously inspected. This gives wise savvy car buyers a tremendous cost-saving. This value proposition is why branded title cars have become so popular and are now harder to find.
