A lot of people think that cheap old junk cars are worthless. The reality of the situation is that they can actually be quite valuable. In case a car is so banged up that it's just a pile of metal scrap, only then has it lost all of its value. Once a car has nothing but broken parts, you might as well buy a brand new one. In case a car only has a lot of damage, it may still be repaired. After fixing it, you can either choose to drive it or sell it off for a profit.

Insurance companies are usually the ones to judge a banged up car's worth. They will list the car as a salvage vehicle, in case the car's repairs would cost more than the car itself. This will instantly decrease the value of the car quite a lot. However, just because an insurance company thinks the car is worthless, doesn't mean everybody has to agree. A car fixing hobbyist might still see value in the car.

I like to fix up cheap old cars myself. Salvage cars have great value for me for this reason. The fact that salvage vehicles are low priced, allows me to repair cars for very little. Most of the times, I fix the cars up until they can be driven again. I like to drive the salvage cars that I've repaired, until my eye catches a new one. Then, I sell off my repaired car and start fixing my newest salvage vehicle.

If you think this would be a great hobby for you as well, then please keep the following tips in mind. Not all salvage automobiles are created equal. Some of them are more junk cars than they are salvage cars. When you're looking to buy cars that are useful for your repair hobby, make sure they still have at least a few parts that are in working order. It may be a cheap hobby, but you still don't want to waste any money. If you want to sell your fixed cars for profit, it's essential to watch your spending. The fewer you spend on salvage cars, the greater your profit margin will be.
