What's the difference between a scrap car and a salvage car?
When you enter your number plate, our advanced pricing technology can recognise whether your car is potentially 'better than scrap''. For cars that are typically less than 12 years old, or are more sought after due to rarity or are in high demand by exporters, our website will identify these as having higher value than scrap cars. A salvage car is more valuable as it can either be re-used (repaired where necessary) or can have more valuable parts salvaged and re-used.See what your car is worth - Get your Scrap or salvage quote now.
