This customer purchased this 2003 Nissan Altima S as a Salvage Vehicle that was written off as a complete Salvage by their Insurance Company. The Customer purchased this car for her son to go to college then he got in an accident and she brought the car to Dr. Jay.
When the customer told Dr. Jay that they wanted to keep the car and asked if there was anyway Jay could help, Dr. Jay suggested a unibody repair and safety damage check to fix all safety components. This helped bring the car back to a safe driving condition, but was left with cosmetic paint scratches. Something the customer could live with until a later date. This saved a lot of money for the customer and put her back on the road in her car again.

The Crash Doctor - Dr. Jay has a wide array of Options to help keep your Salvaged vehicle on the road and running safely.
If your insurance company estimates the damage to your car at more than what the book value is then you have an option to retain the vehicle and receive a reduced payment. The vehicle will then most likely be written off as a Salvage job. Dr. Jay has Options for you such as:
Get your car back on the road safely and affordably now!
Keep your car and make it safe to drive by repairing only the safety damage. The car will stil have exterior cosmetic remedies needed but you will be able to safely drive your car until such time as you have the finances to do a complete paint job.
Dr. Jay's Unique Money Saving Options:
Insurance generally total a vehicle at 70% of value. There are two types of total jobs:
1 - Unrepairable
Economic loss value 2 - Damage
Exceeding 70% of Blue Book your vehicle's Value.
An insurance company also takes into account rental car costs and open items.
An insurance company will total a car with less that 70% damage if there is potential hidden damage.
Often a person retaining the salvaged car will get paid much more than the repair costs. Also an insurance company needs to include all damage and some damage is just cosmetic that the customer can live with. Examples are scratched paint, minor damage to wheel, small dents.
At ABU when we repair a salvage vehicle we have a few rules:
1 - Necessary Safety Parts:
We do all necessary safety repairs including all frame and unibody repair, Mechanical and air bags.

3 - Money Saving:
No paint saving hundreds of dollars.
