Frequently Asked Questions

Who Will Buy My Truck With A Blown Engine?

CarBrain will be happy to make a fair market offer for your truck. We buy trucks “as-is” with no repair needed. Repairing your vehicle after an accident can be an expensive, stressful, long and complicated process. Even after your vehicle receives the best repair possible, it still will likely take a big hit in value, typically to the tune of up to 30%. When it’s time to sell your truck, finding a buyer can be a challenge — up to 55% of people won’t buy a previously damaged car. Selling your car to CarBrain may be a great alternative to repair. Submit your online request for an offer for an offer today.

How Much Can I Get for My Truck if It's Damaged?

The process is simple. Go to any page on our website and click "Get an Offer." For most cars, you’ll receive a guaranteed instant online offer. In some cases, we may need a few more details about your car. In that case, you will receive a call from one of our car buyers shortly after you submit the form. They’ll give you your offer over the phone and email it to you.

Where Do You Buy Trucks?

CarBrain buys and picks up your damaged vehicle from virtually everywhere in the contiguous United States. Click here to visit our “Areas Served” page to verify we service your ZIP Code.

What's the Value of My Truck that Doesn't Run?

CarBrain takes into account a variety of factors when making you an offer for your vehicle. For example, your location, the wholesale value of your car pre-accident, the extent of damage or mechanical and electrical problems, the current market demand for your vehicle and its parts, its make, model, mileage and age all play a role of deciding the value.

For example, some cars, like a 20-year-old sedan that doesn’t start or run, won’t get the same offer as others, like a low-mileage two-year-old sports car with collision damage. Some vehicles fall in-between, like a high-mileage ten-year-old SUV with electrical problems. The best way to find out what your vehicle is worth is to fill out the form and get a quick quote.

There are no “book” values for damaged or salvage cars. However, at CarBrain, we have over 30 years of experience in buying less-than-perfect vehicles. We strive to provide a fair offer to every customer.

What costs will I be responsible for? Are there any charges for CarBrain?

CarBrain is a free service. There are no charges for evaluations and offers. If you sell a car with CarBrain, we pay for pick up and towing. We have no hidden costs. When you sell your car to CarBrain, we pay you, not the other way around.

You are responsible for any storage fees or repair expenses incurred before selling the vehicle to CarBrain.

Does CarBrain work with my insurance?

The insurer is required to prepare a thorough estimate of the damages and will be responsible for paying the vehicle’s owner this amount. Whether you repair the vehicle is usually up to you. Once the insurance company determines how much they owe, tell them you want to keep your car. Once you've received your insurance payment, you can go to CarBrain. We will then pay you the residual value of your damaged car prior to repairs.

The vehicle owner can receive two payments: one from the insurance company for the damage settlement, and a second from CarBrain for the full salvage value of the vehicle. These amounts can then be combined to purchase a new vehicle.

Why should I choose CarBrain? 

Repair isn’t always your best option. In some cases, the cost of repairing your damaged vehicle can exceed the cost of replacing it. In that case, you're better off selling your vehicle and getting a replacement. CarBrain can help you make that happen. We buy all less-than-perfect cars, no matter what condition they're in.

At CarBrain, we make the process fast, safe and easy. All you have to do to get started is get a quote. Our offers are guaranteed for seven days, so you can take some time to think it over. Once you're ready to sell, we can help you schedule a pick-up in under 48 hours. You won't have to worry about any hidden charges or fees. Once the tow truck driver arrives to pick up your car, you'll get payment handed directly to you. It's that simple. Why wait? Get a quote and get started with CarBrain today.
