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.

If by reconstructed title you are referring to a vehicle that had a prior salvage title, I would think you could, contact an agent in your area. == Absolutely! No problem whatsoever. Keep in mind that a reconstructed car is worth roughly 60% of the value of a similar car with a clean title so if you total the car you will get less than real market value but hopefully you paid less for the car so it won't matter.

Hmmm... you bought a car without getting a title? NOT a good idea. The title will state whether the car is clean or salvage or totaled/reconstructed. If you didn't get the title when you purchased the car you better make sure the car wasn't stolen. Call the state DMV with the VIN number for starters. They'll be able to give you some info on the car and the title.

What is a reconstructed title mean?

A reconstructed titled car is a car that was severely Damaged/Totaled and then a repair person or shop builds the car back up well enough to pass inspection. One should be very carefull if buying a vehicle like this because seller might not take it back or give refund. Vehicle might look fine at first but fit and driving ability may be weak or altered and when you get ready to sell the car yourself, it may be difficult or you may have to take a huge loss. NEW ANSWER A reconstructed title is a salvage car that has been repaired to be roadworthy. They are not always severely damaged, it just depends on the value of the car at the time of damage. It doesn't take much to total an older car, it takes a lot to total a new one. Personally, I would only buy a reconstructed vehicle that was at least 8 yrs old and I'd get it inspected by a pro prior to purchase. Sometimes a small fender bender will total an otherwise decent car. Keep this in mind though: a reconstructed car is worth about 60% of the value of a comparable clean titled car.

If one is the primary driver for the car in terms of insurance but does not possess the title for the car is the insurance valid?
