Salvage Vehicles DMV Title Registration Process

In most cases, vehicles sold throught AutoBidMaster are salvaged vehicles that may have other problems that we don't know about and are sold AS IS. Each state has strict laws pertaining to titling and registration of salvage vehicles. If you are not familiar with your state laws please contact your local DMV before you purchase a salvage vehicle. AutoBidMaster will not be responsible for problems that may arise due to your state's salvage laws and regulations.
