What To Do After Your Car Is Totaled?


One of the worst things that can happen to anyone is to get into a car accident that results in their car is totaled.

Although it’s not ideal to have a car totaled, the reality is that this isn’t always the end of the link for the owner of the vehicle because they do have options.

In this article, we will cover some of these options so that you will know what to do next if your vehicle is totaled.

Do This If Your Vehicle Is Totaled.

  • Challenge your insurance provider’s valuation – The first thing you can do if your vehicle is totaled is to invest the time in challenging their Oregon ruling. To do this you must show proof that the cost to repair your vehicle isn’t more than the adjuster’s estimation.
  • Negotiate a higher settlement offer – To do this, you must find out what people would be willing to pay for your vehicle in the local area then go back to your insurance company and ask if they would be willing to settle for more money.
  • Keep your vehicle and sell it yourself – Last of all, but most important, you can keep your vehicle and choose to sell it yourself. If you go with this option, you will need to contact your insurance company and they will need to subtract the salvage value of the vehicle from their payout.
