Branded Titles

Branded Titles

“Ugh, I’m not buying a salvage car!” Is that what you are thinking? Well, let us end that “salvage” stigma.

 

WHY BUY A BRANDED TITLE, OR PREVIOUS INSURANCE VEHICLE?

Let’s face it, we all know vehicles depreciate in value, so why not minimize your loss by buying a car that has already depreciated by a significant percentage off of market value, but is the same quality as any other vehicle.

It’s simple, the less money you spend = the less money you have to lose.

 

WHAT IS A BRANDED TITLE OR AN INSURANCE OWNED VEHICLE?

Branded Title is a term used to distinguish a vehicle once owned by an insurance company for one of many different reasons, including hail damage, theft recovery, vandalism, manufacture buyback, collision, lemon law, weather damage, and/or rejected repair. This does not mean that the car was damaged to disrepair, as most people think. To put it into more perspective… Each year, over 500,000 vehicles in the United States are declared a total loss, but are retained by the owner and fixed without going thru the insurance loss process, which could very well mean that no one will ever know that the vehicle was “totaled”. The rest are rejected by the owner and get written off by the insurance company. As for the vehicles written off, a large percentage of them are drivable and can easily be repaired, but not economically by the insurance company. A “brand” on a title simply means the state mandates sellers to disclose previous loss or damage history, instead of it sliding under the rug, like the 500k+ other ones do. Let us say it again, just because the vehicle was declared a salvage, does not mean it was damaged to disrepair!

 

WILL A BRANDED TITLE VEHICLE BE THE SAME QUALITY AS ANY OTHER?

Our 121-Point Inspection was based on most manufactures “Certified Pre-Owned” inspections because we wanted to provide the same quality vehicle, only with a better price tag! We look at every vehicle in detail to make sure that it has not sustained major damage to make it unsafe or unreliable. After that vehicle has been inspected and repaired to our standards, it is then inspected and approved by the State of Colorado to be safe and roadworthy at which point a “Branded” title is issued. Once this process is complete, it can be registered, insured and enjoyed just like any other car on the road.

We are so confident in the quality and value of our vehicles, we encourage our customers to get a third party opinion or inspection, just to give you that extra peace of mind and confidence.

 

CAN I GET INSURANCE?

Of course you can! Once the vehicle has been inspected and re-titled by the State of Colorado as a “Branded” title, most major insurance companies will offer the same coverage, at the same price, just like any other car.

 

CAN I GET A SERVICE PLAN OR WARRANTY?

Ohh yeah! Since our vehicles are rebuilt and inspected at the highest quality, our extended service plan partners offer factory-like coverage on our vehicles! You can choose any coverage that fits your driving habits and budget. You can choose coverage on anything from just your main powertrain components, all the way up to a comprehensive coverage which will cover all parts of a vehicle except named exclusions. Please see the Warranty Tab under Dealer Services for more information on our plans.
