Salvage Direct Now Includes Commercial Lines Division

February 24, 2006

Salvage Direct reported the launch of its new commercial lines division, adding more construction equipment and heavy machinery to Salvage Direct’s current roster of salvaged vehicles and boats.

The new division will include tractors, trailers, dump trucks, off-highway equipment, ditch diggers and other commercial vehicles which have been salvaged, usually after sustaining damage in an accident or severe weather. The addition of more commercial vehicles is a natural progression for the Titusville, Pennsylvania, company, which began auctioning cars, trucks, motorcycles and boats over the Internet in 1998.

Since Salvage Direct first began pairing state-of-the-art technology with the salvaged vehicle industry, the company has auctioned off thousands of vehicles over the Internet. Salvage Direct sells vehicles on behalf of insurance companies, rental car agencies and other financial institutions to licensed salvage dealers and dismantlers.

Looking at Salvage Direct’s Web site (, buyers may find everything from snowmobiles, jet skis, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, sport utility vehicles, all-terrain vehicles, and various watercraft—with the occasional tour bus thrown in—to the more traditional lines of cars and trucks. Vehicle damage ranges from minor to so severe the vehicle has been certified “unrebuildable.”

Salvage Direct’s format enables buyers who log onto the Web site to see photographs and descriptions of available vehicles, bid on those that interest them and purchase vehicles for which they place the winning bid.

Predominantly in the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions, the Salvage Direct network includes clients in Texas, California and Washington.
