UNDERSTANDING VEHICLE’S DAMAGE & WRITE-OFF LEVELS

Selling a broken or damaged car can be a confusing time and you may find yourself wondering whether people will want it, especially if you’re selling a WOF failure, a non-runner or need to sell an insurance write-off, but salvage categories have made it easier for people to understand the differences between broken and damaged vehicles.

  • D- Dismantled – Legitimate removal of components for use as parts.
  • F- Fire – Damage caused by combustion.
  • H- Hail – Damage caused by hailstones.
  • I- Impact – Collision of some type with an object, for instance, another vehicle, tree or pole.
  • M- Malicious – Intentional damage, for example, broken door locks, glass window or windows, paint, scratched or stripped of all or a combination of interior and exterior body parts.
  • W- Water – Damage caused by water such as a storm, river or flood.
