  • ALL VEHICLES ARE SOLD ‘AS IS’ without a warranty and have SALVAGE TITLES, unless noted.
  • All descriptions and comments are written to the best of our knowledge.
  • We do NOT have repair estimates for our repairable vehicles, as this will depend on where you get your parts and who completes your work. Try WWW.CAR-PART.COM for used parts.
  • For Michigan customers, PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE SALES TAX or TITLE FEES.
  • Credit Cards ONLY ACCEPTED FOR DEPOSITS up to $500, but NOT for full payment of vehicle (A credit card will be accepted for a balance due on a purchased vehicle for an additional 3 percent above total sale price. We do not accept American Express).
  • All vehicles with deposit/down payments must be paid in full within 1 week. We do NOT finance vehicles. Please call first for vehicle availability before driving from a great distance.
  • Effective March 22nd, 2017, the State of Michigan requires an additional Salvage vehicle inspection requirement (for Michigan residents) indicating that any repairs performed on a Salvage titled vehicle were completed in a ‘workmanlike manner compliant with acceptable industry standards.’ This does NOT mean that only ‘certified’ repair facilities can purchase and repair Salvage titled vehicles. Anyone is still eligible to purchase and repair a Salvage titled vehicle. Form TR-13A requires that a properly certified mechanic/body shop technician sign off that repairs were not ‘cobbled/hacked’ in a poor manner. The updated TR-13A is available at www.mi.gov by using the search bar at the top of the page.
  • D & A Auto Body is licensed to complete the additional TR-13A inspection form (after repairs are completed) at NO ADDITIONAL COST for vehicles purchased here.
  • VEHICLE HOLD POLICY: When asked, we will ‘Hold’ a vehicle from the time you call to let us know you’re getting in your vehicle and leaving your location. You will be required to give us your cell phone number and we will estimate the time it will take for you to arrive here. We will NOT hold it past that time. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy. A credit card will NOT hold a vehicle, unless you wish to purchase the vehicle. In that case, we will consider the vehicle ‘SOLD’ at the current advertised price and all deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE. We strongly urge you to come and view any vehicle in person before committing to purchase.
  • Aftermarket parts are available for many vehicles listed below and can be purchased at D & A’s cost + 10% extra for handling.

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. 

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.
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.
No, we don’t write repair cost estimates on these vehicles. Our estimators stay 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. Many times, labor costs are half of an insurance quality repair estimate.
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 structure & sheetmetal. We’re selective along the lines of damage when purchasing our vehicles.
Yes, we are a registered Michigan used car dealer.
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.
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.
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 many banks will loan money on that vehicle.
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.
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.
No. We estimate about half of the vehicles we purchase have batteries that will survive, while the other half will need to be replaced due to age or the effects of cold weather.
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.
