Salvage vehicles in Nevada are issued an orange-colored Salvage Title. A salvage vehicle may not be registered or operated on any public street until it has been rebuilt and inspected.

Non-Repairable vehicles are issued a Certificate and may not be restored to operating condition.
Vehicles 10 model years old or older are not considered salvage vehicles if the only repairs needed are a limited number of items. Specifically, the hood, the trunk lid, and/or up to two of the following: doors, grill assembly, bumper assembly, headlight assembly and taillight assembly.
If the vehicle requires more repairs than this, the 65 percent damage rule applies. For example, the 65 percent rule would apply if the grill, front bumper and one headlight assembly were replaced.

Doing this can sometimes involve a slightly complicated process. Because the vast majority of salvage listings come from insurance auctions which are closed to the public, online salvage auctions must act as a broker between you and the insurance auction. By placing a bid in most listings, you are essentially authorizing a licensed dealer to bid on your behalf.
Online auction cars for sale are not unlike other online bidding sites, such as eBay. You simply place your maximum amount and compete with other similar bidders. The major difference is that you must confirm your bid with a partial deposit as a sign of solvency and good faith.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles considers a vehicle salvage once it has been wrecked, destroyed, or damaged to the extent that the insurance company considers it uneconomical to repair. For most insurance companies, this means that if the cost of the repair exceeds the value of the car, the vehicle is not repaired and the owner is issued a payout, usually the pre-accident value of the vehicle.
