Vehicle salvage – getting yourself a real bargain
Motor vehicle salvage has for years been a popular way of either, getting yourself a nearly new car at a fraction of retail prices or a way of making some good money while enjoying the vehicle salvage repairs process. It can be so exciting when you find a car you want then source all the parts and get it repaired by a qualified vehicle salvage repairer like us.
A high percentage of cars these days are written off by cost not because the vehicle was too badly damaged to be repared. The trick to doing profitable vehicle salvage (if there is a trick) is to get your parts as cheap as you can. Insurance companies will not allow accident repair centres to use pre owned parts hence why some cars get written off. You can use quality pre owned parts to repair your car as long as they are cut off and welded back on correctly with safety being paramount over cost.

Not all vehicle salvage can be or should repaired!
Please bear in mind when looking for your vehicle salvage gem, not all vehicles can be repaired, some should be scrapped. If in doubt walk away. It is always better to buy a car that you have physically seen and you can make a rough assessment. Hear it running and make a note of the main parts. Just be careful of bad salvage auction photos, ask for more if needed and call the salvage agents up to get more of information.
We are happy to quote you repair costs once you have the vehicle and parts. We will not quote you pre buying, as this ties up our time and gives us less time to repairs vehicles. The choice is yours, do your homework and don’t buy on a whim!
