Should I scrap my car?

It’s time to put your accident behind you. If your car has taken the majority of the impact when you had an accident and the car insurance assessors have declared your car a category D, you might be wondering exactly what this means.

Not to worry as we’re here to help with that. If your car has been placed into this category, it firstly helps people to know whether they can still buy and see 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 D has now changed. But what has it changed to?

What is a cat N?

Formerly known as a category D, the category N is what is currently referred to under the new salvage categories. The old salvage category D meant that a car was repairable but the repair costs didn’t exceed pre-accident value.

Under the new salvage category N, this refers to vehicles that have sustained some damage but not to its structural frame. If a car is placed within this category, this means that the insurance company who has handled the claim has deemed that repairing the car would have cost more than replacing it.

You can sell on your category N car and if you’re wondering who to, then look no further.
