Inter Auto Center

Inter Auto Center is family-owned licensed, independent car dealership and licensed salvage car rebuilder that specializes in clean and former salvage cars for sale. We are primarily located in Virginia, but travel across the country to insurance auctions and other sources for clean title and salvage cars. Our buying power and salvage car experts enable us to offer affordable inventory of rebuilt cars, trucks and SUVs.

Inter Auto Center strives to offer the best discounts, convenient ordering and a smooth transaction process. We offer an alternative car buying experience that is transparent and honest. We understand that buying a former salvage vehicle with a rebuilt title can lead to uncertainty, that is why we offer all clients before/after pictures and a 3-Month/3,000 Miles limited warranty.  All repairs and maintenance are provided by experienced and professional technicians that work for our collision center, Inter Auto Service. Clients can also review repair and inspection receipts.

About our Inventory

We offer a selection of cars, trucks, and SUV’s, with a wide range of damages including collision, recovered theft, hail damage and other types of insurance losses. We do not purchase fire, flood, or extremely damaged vehicles. Our goal is to purchase vehicles with minor cosmetic damage, so that our clients have a reliable vehicle at a lower price. Some of the vehicles we offer can carry a clean title. Included in this category are lease returns, bank repossessions, and former rental cars.

A salvage title is assigned to a vehicle that has been declared a total loss from collision, flood, theft, fire or vandalism. A salvage vehicle cannot be registered until vehicle is repaired, salvage inspection is completed, and a standard title with a status of “S” ? meaning previous salvage ? is issued.


In the state of Virginia, insurance companies have the authority to declare a vehicle a total loss if an automobile is in an accident. If the insurance claims the total loss or the word salvage has been stamped on the title, it is illegal in some states to operate the vehicle on any road until it has been restored or has passed the state salvage inspection.

If the vehicle is restored, it has to be inspected before a Rebuilt Title will be issued. A rebuilt vehicle with a VA Salvage Rebuilt Title can be driven on the highways. Please note that vehicle can’t be re-titled until it passes a Salvage Inspection.
