What is a Branded Title?


For the most part, a branded (salvage) title means that the vehicle could be repaired, but an insurance company instead chose to write of their losses and simply replace it with ta new one depending on the original customers preference. A branded title car is a vehicle sold through an insurance auction for a variety of reasons, including theft recovery, hail damage, collision, water damage manufacturer buyback, reject repair, and ? or lemon law. The designation of salvage title on a vehicle  can mean different things in different states. In some states the term salvage means that the car has not yet been approved to be sold. In other states, salvage titles can be a designation that it was just a hail damage, collision or other damage in which an insurance auction wanted to recover a salvage value from the car, rather than try to get it repaired. Because of the different definitions of the salvage designation, we prefer to use "branded" and go on to disclose and educate customers on the reason that the vehicle was branded.
