Some Frequently Asked Questions...

Q: Why doesn't D & A Auto Body repair these damaged vehicles? A: We are normally booked 1-2+ weeks out with insurance work. Sometimes, during the summer months, we will repair some of these vehicles if insurance work is slow.

Q: Why do a lot of these vehicle have Salvage titles? A: We buy quite a few of our vehicles from the Chicago area. Due to a state law, the State of Illinois gives all vehicles that are considered 'totaled' by an insurance company a Salvage title. Vehicles 'totaled' in Michigan can retain Clean titles, but in many cases these vehicles have far more damage than other 'totaled' vehicles with Salvage titles from Illinios and Michigan. Michigan's insurance companies are very inconsistent when assigning title status to 'totaled' vehicles.

Q: Do you sell parts? A: Yes and No. We normally don't sell new OEM parts, but once in awhile we'll have something used available. We will sell new, aftermarket parts for our cost + 10% extra for handling to buyers of our repairable vehicles. Also, we always suggest buyers use the website www.car-part.com for factory, OEM used parts. This is the best website available and it will connect you directly with your local salvage yard that has the part(s) you're looking for. Also, when dealing with deployed airbags, try www.myairbags.com to get air bag control modules reprogrammed for a fraction of the price of a new unit.

Q: Do you have repair estimates on these vehicles? A: No, we don't write repair cost estimates on these vehicles. Our estimators are usually busy writing insurance work estimates. Repair costs will depend on where you get your parts and who does your work. The more work you can do yourself, the more money you will save. Labor costs are many times half of an insurance quality repair estimate.

Q: Do you ever get repairable trucks for sale? A: Yes, but not as often as we would like. A lot of the damaged trucks we see are either hit hard and need frames, or they are rolled over and need most of the sheetmetal. We're selective along the lines of damage when purchasing our vehicles.

Q: Are you a dealer? A: Yes, we are a registered Michigan used car dealer.

Q: What additional fees are collected when a 'repairable' vehicle is purchased? A: For Michigan residents, we collect 6% sales tax and a $15 title fee. A purchaser will only pay sales tax once to the State of Michigan for each vehicle purchased. For out of state buyers, we only collect the purchase price of the vehicle. Sales tax will be collected by their state of residence when applying for a new title.

Q: Do you charge a 'processing' fee when selling a car? A: No!! Most dealerships will charge a 'processing' fee (usually between $100-$200+) to type up and process paperwork. We've always felt that's a rip off.

Q: Will banks finance vehicles with Salvage titles? A: In almost every instance, the answer is no. However, some people have arranged for 'personal loans'. Also, once a vehicle has been repaired and assigned a 'rebuilt title', then most banks will loan money on that vehicle.

Q: Do you take requests for specific vehicles? A: In most cases, no. We try to keep an inventory with a variety of quality vehicles, but a search for a 'specific vehicle' can take a long time and never seems to work out.

Q: How do I contact a Salvage vehicle inspector (for Michigan residents) for a Salvage vehicle recertification? A: A list of Salvage vehicle inspectors, by county, can be found at www.mi.gov. Search 'Salvage vehicle inspector' in the provided search bar. When viewing the results, a link for a blank inspection form can also be found at the same location.

Q: Do you take trade-ins? A: No.

Q: How do you price your vehicles? A: We reference NADA.com for pricing on our newer vehicles along with taking into cosideration the damage and our investment. On older vehicles with lower miles, NADA pricing is somewhat referenced, but in many cases we price vehicles along the lines of what we feel they're worth.

Q: What does FWD mean? A: Front Wheel Drive. Q: What does RWD mean? A: Rear Wheel Drive. Q: What does AWD mean? A: All Wheel Drive Q: What does 4x4/4WD mean? A: Four Wheel Drive.
