Rebuilt Wrecks


A worrying thing on TV tonight. They raided a car chop shop where they cut wrecks in half and make one out of two and sell them interstate as good cars.

There looked like about 5-6 X-Trails in the yard as well. Can there be such a market in wrecked X-Trails?????

That is the way the insurance companies now fix cars and we have Jamie as an example, where half of the exy is gonna be sent to him from Sydney.

At least this transaction is legal, but who knows where half of that exy came from emoticon

Re: Rebuilt Wrecks


Owning a Wrecking Yard, I see this kind of activity everyday.

We are regularly at the the Salvage Auctions, and I must say - each auction I go to, there is at least 1 to 5 X-Trails there, which are listed as repairable write off's. These get bought by regular civilians and get repaired. Usually involving a front, or rear cut off another Xtrail donor car. I sell at least 3 cuts a week (not Xtrails - we only do Commodores). So it is a normal thing that people do to repair wrecks - legally.

I can point out 3 XTrails - just by looking at the ads on carsales that would be on REVS, or would at some stage been a repairable write off.

Keep in mind, when doing a REVS check on a car when buying, all repairable write off's wont be listed. eg. If a car was written off in VIC, it will not be on the NSW register for written off vehicles. The federal government is looking at have a single nation wide register, or at least have all the states linked up.

Rule of thumb - if a car is too cheap to be true, there is more than likely something behind it.

Best of Luck! emoticon
