Best Answer

most of the time, if an insurance company "totals" your equipment, it will pay it off or pay you and then sell it to a junk yard for as much as they can get for it.

However, you do have the option to buy your bike at the same price the salvage yard would pay.

If the insurance company totals your car do you have to accept it or do you have an option to have it fixed?

In most cases, you can get it fixed yourself. When the insurance company totals out a car, that is all they themselves are willing to pay. If you want to pay to have it fixed yourself, most won't care, but your rates may still change depending on the circumstances of the accident.

If it was their fault, their insurance company will cover the damages of your vehicle. I would hope that the person at fault has filed the claim already but you need to make certain. I also hope that a police report was done at the time of the accident.

Can you buy back your totaled financed car lets say my car is financed and I get into an accident that totals my car. I know the insurance will pay out the bank but can i still buy it back after?

Yes, you can usually but it back because it is then between you and the insurance company. But keep in mind your insurance company normally pays the ACV (Actual Cash Value) which may not be what you actually owe on the vehicle unless you carry Gap insurance. Gap Insurance is an additional coverage that covers the balance of the loan between the ACV and remaining Balance.


What does gap insurance in Virginia do?

It is different from regular insurance because it covers you for the difference between your car's value, and what you owe on it if you have an accident that totals the car, or the vehicle is stolen. If you are making payments on the vehicle, and you owe more than its value, your GAP insurance will cover the difference.

Can you get insurance on a reconstructed title car?

The insurance company will not know that the vehicle has been reconstructed unless you tell them up front. The problem comes if you have an accident or claim which totals the vehicle. The value of a vehicle that been a total loss is far less than a vehicle that has not so the company will evaluate the value of your vehicle at a far lower amount when time to pay you in a total situation. This is a fact that you need to be aware of in case you do total the vehicle again. The company is obligated to pay you the value of the vehicle at the time immediately before your accident. This is fair as you pay far less for it versus buying an undamaged vehicle but you will pay premiums the same as anyone else.
