Harvey/Houston: Title washed cars will soon "flood" the market.../

caveat emptor, it's gonna happen again......should be exponentially a larger amount than Sandy or Katrina Due to the expanse of the flood.

Lots of new cars will be bought in Houston with insurance money.

Car sales business will be booming

Yep, but they didn't have VinCheck back then.

It won't stop 'em, but will make it harder for concealing salvages.

What these Bozos forget is that a Flood Salvage can also be a huge Biohazard.

This outlines what scams buyers should look for,

Btw, we were just taking about leasing a few multi-car tow rigs, closing up shop for a few months, and going out and doing some recoveries for the Insurance Companies.

Its sad that a Natural Disaster always has a business side to them.

That's why you never do business with someone that's not licensed, bonded and insured.

Btw, TX. is issuing expedited tow/recover licenses for out-of-state companies that have a background and experience.
