Should I scrap my car?

If you’ve ever been involved in a car accident (fingers crossed you haven’t) then the amount of damage to your car will determine whether or not it is a write-off.

Car insurance assessors will use four different categories of car insurance write-off to determine the seriousness of the damage to a car.

By placing a car that’s had an accident into one of these categories, it helps people to know whether they can still buy and sell a type of written off car.

Up until recently the four categories where A, B, C, D and the level of damage would decrease by category starting from A. However, category C has now changed. But what has it changed to?

What is a cat S?

Formerly known as a category C, the category S is what it is currently referred to under the new salvage categories. The old salvage category C meant that a car was repairable but the repair costs exceed pre-accident value.

Under the new salvage category S, this means that a car is structurally damaged but it is still repairable.

If your car is deemed to be a category S, you’ll be glad to know that this can be repaired by engineers who have the right skills, but sadly that won’t stop the car from retaining that for the foreseeable. Although this might make it less appealing to some buyers, it won’t to us!
