In this case, state agency designates the "branded" title to the vehicle's documents.

Branded Title Car

At TJ Chapman Auto, the majority of our inventory is branded title vehicles, simply because we can Save You Thousands of Dollars on a vehicle.

You need to pay attention to the following tips when you buy a branded title car.
 
  • First, you need to have knowledge of the vehicles history. Almost half of the vehicles sold have some certain damage, however you can only have access to the used car report from CarFax and Autocheck, who only have access to public records. This means if a vehicle has accident history and was repaired privately, there is no official record of the damage.

  • Be confident in the dealership you are buying from! Choosing a good dealership is very important especially when you consider a branded title car. We know the branded title cars are sold through insurance auctions because of many reasons, such as theft recovery, water or hail damage. Our advantage is that we provided a third party car inspection company to inspect all our used cars. The inspection process can ensure you have a whole picture of the car you are going to buy. Report details can be found by entering the last six digits of the VIN number at https://www.bluestar.com/
