God bless those of us who have been devastated by the flood.
Last week many of us Staten Islanders were down in the devastated areas to help our brothers clean out basements and pump water out. We also needed to gut homes so they could try out and begin rebuilding.
The one thing that struck me was the amount of cars damaged. Every car that was in these areas experience salt water flooding. Thousands of cars. I was in the local VW dealer who stores 200 cars in the area. He told me the dealership had no damage but they found the cars on top of each other. 200 new cars destroyed. Unbelievable.
I've had 5 customer call or come in with salt water flooded cars. 3 can't start the cars, 2 have started and using their cars but 1 has already experienced electronic problems. The experience of salt water flooded cars is unfortunately documented as recently as Katrina. These cars are not salvageable. Call your insurance companies and start the settlement process. I can help you on value so you get the right price for your car. Please, don't hesitate call me with any questions.
