What Are Salvage Cars
Salvage cars are generally newer cars that have either been writen off or have a damaged engine for example. These cars are usually newer than 2002 and are popular cars that can be repaired and re used or have value in their parts. Salvage cars are worth more than scrap cars which generally range from £200 - £10000 depending on the vehicle and fault.
For instance a 2001 fiat brava with a gearbox problem is not classed as a salvage car because they are being scrapped daily and have no re sale value. But a 2002 fiat punto with a gearbox fault is a salvage car because it does still have a re sale value or can be used for parts.
