Used, accident damaged automobiles and motorcycles can be found in virtually any city in the world. There are also many different companies and individuals who buy used, accident damaged automobiles and motorcycles, so they can salvage the good parts from them and resell them. Always inspect an accident damaged vehicle or motorcycle before purchasing one.
Accident Damaged Automobiles
Used, accident damaged automobiles can be purchased from auto dealerships, junk yards and even individuals. Automobiles in this condition may have major damage to them, or damage that is not visible to the eye. Mechanical damage can be found in the engines, transmissions, computers, or even brakes and cylinders of automobiles. Mechanical damage, since it is more easily missed on inspections, can be much more dangerous when driving the automobile. A licensed mechanic should be with a person that is planning on purchasing a used, accident damaged automobile. Avoid buying the automobile if the person or company selling it refuses to allow an inspection.
Accident Damaged Motorcycles
Used motorcycles that have been accident damaged are less expensive to purchase than a non damaged used motorcycle, but the cost of repairs may push the cost up higher than purchasing a new motorcycle. Motorcycles can sustain a lot of unseen damage when they are involved in an accident. Wiring, and internal springs can be damaged and not even known about until the motorcycle is travelling at a high rate of speed. A trained motorcycle mechanic should be with anyone that is planning on looking at and possibly purchasing a used, accident damaged motorcycle. Handlebar, shocks, and bent rims are all damages that can be clearly seen on a motorcycle.
The cost of a used, accident damaged automobile or motorcycle may seem like a great deal until the cost of the repairs is figured out and added to the cost. Many times, unseen damage can raise the price of a used vehicle to the point that it would have cost less to purchase an undamaged vehicle. On average, the cost of a used, accident damaged automobile is around R9 000, and the price of a used, accident damaged motorcycle is on average around R6 000.
