Insurance companies set a threshold for repair costs based on the value of your car. If the total repair cost is close to/ in excess of this threshold, your vehicle may be deemed as a total loss. In this instance your insurance company may give you the option to retain the salvage. If you agree to this, you will need to arrange collection of the vehicle from our site. If not, we will contact you to arrange collection of any personal belongings before a recovery company collects the vehicle.

You will need to contact your insurance directly to enquire about any funds you may be entitled to.
