A scrap title is a branding given to a car if it has one or more wrecked parts like body, bumpers, doors, fenders, frame, engine, hood, tailgate and transmission. The title is not put in the open like on the windshield. Instead it is indicated on the vehicle’s documents that show that the car has reduced in value which may be due to a collision or any other disaster.
The scrap title suggests that the expenses of repairing such a car would amount or exceed its value. Other than that, it has two different objectives:
The Scrap Title Discourages Theft
Altering a vehicle’s identification number is a common auto fraud. What these criminals do is to put a VIN of a damaged vehicle on a stolen one to hide identity. If the vehicle is entirely wrecked, its documents are valuable to people who deal in stolen cars. If anyone is planning to sell the stolen car, the stolen VIN shows a low value hence it reduces profitability, thereby deterring theft.
The Title Serves To Protect Consumers Or Buyers From Wrecked Vehicles
A previously wrecked and repaired vehicle easily finds its way into auctions. If this car was already branded the title, though rebuilt, it could still have a major part like the mechanical systems still damaged. Such a car is in a non-roadworthy condition and using it may harm you or other road users.
