Get it in front of 160+ million buyers.

If you are the type of person who likes to put work into your vehicle, buying a restoration or salvage car can be a great way to enjoy your hobby and save some money. Luckily for you, eBay sellers have dozens of cars in various stages of life from which you can choose.

What is a salvage car and who should buy one?

A salvage car or truck is one that has been damaged in a manner that would cost more to repair than the car is worth. Such a car is often deemed to be “written off.” But just because a car has experienced significant damage does not mean it’s necessarily a bad idea for you to purchase it. Salvage vehicles can come in many shapes and sizes and feature a range of issues, some of which are cosmetic. If you are willing to roll up your sleeves and put in a bit of work, you might be able to buy parts and accessories online and fix the issues yourself at a reasonable cost. Alternatively, salvage cars can contain parts that you can use to finish other projects. In the end, it all comes down to weighing the odds and costs you will incur going forward. Are you going to have to buy an engine or other major part? Is the car a significant risk for needing more work? Take all of these elements into account when browsing the salvage cars on eBay. You might just find an opportunity that’s too good to pass up.

What to consider when starting a restoration project

Getting elbows deep in the guts of an old car in an effort to restore it can be a whole lot of fun. But it can also be very expensive if you don’t take adequate time to prepare for what needs to be done. The first thing you need to do is assess the damage that’s been done to the car. This involves much more than a cursory look at its interior and exterior. Really take your time and dig deep to make sure you’re not biting off more than you can chew. As you’re doing this, try to figure out just how comprehensive a job you want to do. Do you want to get the car back to being ready to drive regularly? Or do you simply want to display it? Finally, make your plan. Write down all the things you need to do, what you will need to get the job done and how much it will cost. Try to adhere to this plan as closely as possible during the restoration process.  Putting in the work on a restoration or salvage car can be a rewarding experience in more ways than one. Check out all the options available right now on eBay and set your sights on your next project.
