Salvage Title: cars you find on auction sites with salvage titles are cars that are damaged due to accident. They may be minor or major, so you need to ascertain the level of damage beforehand. This enables you determine if it could be easy to fix in Nigeria.

Clean Title: Clean title cars are cars that are very OK. But the drawback of cars in this category is that they are a bit pricey than salvage title cars. Clean title cars may in some instances have minor dents or scratches on the body.

Enhanced Vehicle: These are cars that have been modified due to accident or have certain parts changed to perform below par or according to prior users taste and style.

Buy It Now: The price for the car you want to buy. The exact price you pay for the car. The price you pay for the car is fixed.

Bid: The price is not fixed as you are required to bid on the amount you want to buy the car. The highest bidder for such cars get the car.

Cars To Avoid When Buying Cars On Car Auction Sites

There are cars which you should avoid buying because the cost of fixing such cars in Nigeria would be very high. In some instances they cannot be fixed.

Avoid the following cars;

Flooded vehicles. They usually have high electrical faults and chances of fixing them are very low.

Accident vehicles with damaged front end which affects the engine bay.

Vehicles with bad and damaged frames.

Cars with bad or damaged airbags. Airbags must be intact.

Why Cars On These Auction Sites Are Cheap

Here is one of the secrets car dealers do not want you to know. Most of the cars imported into Nigeria are accident vehicles which could be easily fixed in Nigeria. They buy them at very dirt cheap prices, fix them in Nigeria and sell them at a very high prices.

80% of cars imported in Nigeria are salvaged vehicles. Custom duties on these salvaged vehicles are also very low. Not all vehicles are accident vehicles though. Some are cars with minor dents or scratches.

Besides, owners of these vehicles had them insured and when they have an accident will have the insurance company write the car off as Offroad. It means the car cannot be driven anywhere in the country where it had the accident except outside the country. The insurance company will then sell off the car to auction sites as off road vehicles. The fact that it has been tagged “off road” vehicle in the US or Canada does not mean it cannot be driven in Nigeria. After all, you do not dump your car in Nigeria just because it had accident, you try to fix it and bring it back to the road.

In some instances, owners of these vehicles are just car freaks that want a newer model and cannot afford to have both cars in their garage with the accompanying car charges.
Imagine what happens when someone buys a new phone and sells off his old phone at a cheap price, or needs to sell off old phone to make up money for a new phone.

Those are some of the reasons why some cars come cheap on those car auction sites.
