VEHICLE TITLE INFORMATION
Arizona specifically identifies odometer mileage and brand of the cars on the title as one of each of the following categories:
• BOX A – Actual Mileage.
• BOX B – Mileage exceeds the mechanical limits of the odometer.
• BOX C – True Mileage Unknown.
Left blank – no brand, which means the State of Arizona has not recognized an incident to this vehicle that would brand it a salvage vehicle. This in NO WAY means that the state has not erred in recognizing a vehicle’s previous salvage brand in another state. Please do your DUE DILIGENCE in researching the title status of a vehicle prior to bidding.
Restored Salvage – vehicle was previously salvaged and has been brought up to a road-worthy status per state regulations and requirements.
Salvage – vehicle has had one or more incidents (such as a total loss from theft/recovery, flood/water damage, fire, severe accident) such that its condition requires the state to brand the vehicle as not road-worthy.
