What are title brands?
If a vehicle is “branded”, it means that it had some kind of serious accident or incident and was written off as a “total loss” (it would cost more to repair than to replace).
Before you buy a used vehicle, it’s extremely important to check its title for brands. By law, once a vehicle has been branded, this becomes a permanent part of its title. A seller may rebuild or repair a branded vehicle to bring it back up to working order, but its title must always state its branded status.
