Another benefit is the value for money you can get from a salvage vehicle, some insurance companies can declare a car as written off for minimal vehicle damage as the cost to repair it is far more than the car is worth, therefore, you could buy a fairly new car with minimal damage for the fraction of the price as a new one.
