Vehicle Categories Explained
Car insurance assessors use various categories of car insurance write-off to rank the seriousness of accident damage. Two categories represent very serious damage, but the remaining two categories are for 'economic write-offs' – where damage is expensive to fix but not dangerous.
We don't auction or sell
Category A: scrap only. For cars so badly damaged they should be crushed and never re-appear on the road. Even salvageable parts must be destroyed.
Category B: body shell should be crushed. Signifies extensive damage, although some parts are salvageable. Should never re-appear on road, although reclaimed parts can be used in other road-going vehicles.
We only auction:
Category C: the vehicle is repairable but the costs exceed the vehicle’s value. Can re-appear on road.
Category D: the vehicle is repairable but repair costs are significant compared to the vehicle value – including time delays to source parts. Can re-appear on road.
Category S: the vehicle is repairable but is structurally damaged. Can re-appear on road.
Category N: he vehicle is repairable but is non-stucturally damaged. Can re-appear on road.
Category X: This covers any vehicle that is not currently involved in a total loss, these vehicles are used not currently salvage, they are used but maybe faulty. Mostly they are HPI clear (UNRECORDED) but these vehicles may have been subject to a Total loss in their past, these will be marked on the auction as Previous Total Loss.
The ABI Salvage Code dictates that Category A and Category B cars should be crushed, with Cat B vehicles allowed to donate some safe and serviceable parts.
