Can I get Insurance for a car with a branded title?

Yes! Absolutely. After owning and selling branded title vehicles to family, friends, and valued customers, we are aware of only a few insurance companies that will not fully insure branded title vehicles. An insurance companies primary concern is knowing that every vehicle is safe and roadworthy. TJ Chapman Auto vehicles have been through a rigorous 150-Point Inspection and a state certified safety inspection, which will easily meet their criteria.

What is a branded title?

A “branded title” is an umbrella term for either a salvage or rebuilt/restored title vehicle.

A salvage title vehicle is sold through an insurance auction for a variety of reasons, such as theft recovery, hail damage, collision, water recovery or manufacturer buyback. Insurance companies opt to write off losses for a variety of reasons.

The designation of salvage title on a vehicle can mean different things in different states. In the state of Utah a salvage title vehicle is not legal to drive. It must pass a safety inspection through the state, then the title is changed to a rebuilt/restored status.

Rebuit/restored vehicles can be insured and financed.
