Sell My Damaged Car
Looking to sell your damaged car?
If you are looking to sell your damaged car, then often the car will have been involved in an unfortunate accident so is an insurance write off, failed an MOT and you feel the cost to repair the car to pass the MOT is not worth it, or the car has stopped running due to a major fault like a gearbox failure or complete engine failure.
A damaged car can fall into the following types of damage, damage to the bodywork, to the engine or to the interior.
The time to get these damages sorted out can be very time consuming so depending on your circumstances you may look to a professional scrap car buyer or buyer of salvage vehicles.
The good news when you are thinking should I sell my damaged car and you decide to sell it, the price offered for this type of scrap car will be higher as it may be classed as a salvage car.
A salvage car is valued more than a scrap car. A scrap car is one that will be disposed of and recycled for metal, a salvage car is one that ism damaged in some way, may be a higher prestige make and model, can have its parts sold or can be repaired to be road worthy again.
A typical example of a salvage car is an MOT failure. If your car has failed its MOT then you may also think should I sell my damaged car.
Selling a car can be hard but trying to sell a car that has recently failed it’s MOT test or has no MOT will make it much much harder. Most of us looking to buy a car will be wanting a car to buy and drive home but without an MOT this isn’t possible.
Shall I sell my damaged car?
Here are the levels of damaged cars:
We are damaged car buyers, we buy all sorts of cars and vans whatever condition they are in, even if they are badly damaged or broken for salvage.
Your car may have an engine failure, you may have badly crashed your car or just have major issues with it, whichever we will buy your damaged car.
The reason why can be explained here - So if you have had a crash in your vehicle and you have badly damaged the bodywork this damage would classify the vehicle as damaged.
Depending on how badly damaged the vehicle is, your insurance may consider the cost of repairing the vehicle as uneconomical to do.
But just because an insurance company thinks its uneconomical to repair the damage, doesn’t mean it cannot be repaired. In this instance whilst the shell of the car has sustained the damage, parts of the car can still be reused for spares and repairs in other vehicles.
Another example would be if you were selling a non-running vehicle without an MOT certificate. In this instance the vehicle would be classified as broken as it isn’t actually working. But just because the car is broken, doesn’t mean it’s unusable. The body of a broken car may be perfectly fine which means that the car can be repaired if the parts which are broken, are changed or fixed.
