What is a salvage car?
But what is a salvage car? Put simply, this is a car is usually one that has been written off by the insurance firm because it’s too expensive to repair.
After paying you out, the car still belongs to you and you are free to sell it or repair it – though there are restrictions on this and these are known as categories. For example:
- Category A: These are salvage cars that must be scrapped
- Category B: These are salvage cars that cannot be repaired, but some of the parts can be reused
- Category S: This designation is where the structural frame of the chassis has been damaged and the car can be used for salvage purposes.
- Category N: The salvage car has no structural damage and it can be repaired and put back on the road.
Selling your salvage car for money
When it comes to selling your salvage car for money, you need to appreciate that the category of salvage is important and whether it’s a late model.
That’s because there’s a premium offered to marques such as BMW, Jaguar and Mercedes because quality used car parts from these cars are in high demand for customers to repair their own vehicles.
Along with those salvage cars that must be scrapped and vehicles that have reached the end of their operational life, these must be taken to an authorised treatment facility for correct processing, so the car is depolluted properly.
