A vehicle that has been totaled can be sold for scrap and parts through junk yards or scrap metal yards. Also there are several businesses that will pay a small amount of money to take the scrap from a totaled car.

Can you rebuilt a totalled car?

You can, but totaled means "not worth repairing". You will spend more money repairing a totaled car than you would buying a new one.

How do you decide if a totaled car is worth salvaging?

It can just be a judgment call. Can you do the work yourself or will it have to be done at a shop. Usually if a car is totaled it is because it will cost more to fix than it is worth. As a car gets older it takes less to total one. If it costs half of retail that will probably be enough. If you do the work yourself it can make sense to fix a total. I do it regularly. On average, buying a totaled car and fixing it you will have about half of retail in it. Sometimes only third. You might think a given car is worth it and I wouldn't.

Why is repair preferred than replacement by the insurance companies?

If repair costs are up to 76% of the vehicles value then the vehicle is totaled. Whichever option is least expensive is the one they go with but you will never find one that is going to actually replace your car, just give you the estimated value at the time. If you have ever had a car totaled you know that you never get enough to replace it.
