How are vehicles titled salvage vans?

It is pretty self-explanatory, however, salvage vans are titles this way usually because they have damage beyond repair or damage that is so big and serious that the previous owner or insurance company consider the cost of service not worth the investment or bigger than the price of the van. Salvage vans are often vehicles that have been through an incident or accident. With that been said, auctions for salvage vans are not necessarily selling a pile of scrap for pennies. Interestingly enough, sometimes you are able to find salvage vans for a great price and not that much of serious damage that can be repaired without a big cost.
