Frequently asked questions

How much is my van worth?

The value of your van is determined on a number of different factors. When you get a quote from BMS Salvage we ask for a number of details like mileage, wear and tear, any existing faults. You can even provide us pictures from your device and WhatsApp. We take all of these into account for accurate pricing.

When do I get paid? Do you pay in cash?

We complete payment on the day your van is picked up. Once the car is transported away then we get confirmation of its accuracy and release payment. Payment is made via bank transfer that same evening. It is against the law, according to the Scrap Metal Dealers Act of 2013, to pay in cash for scrap or salvage vehicles.

Can my van be salvaged as an insurance write off?

Yes, we can still under certain circumstances salvage an insurance write off. This depends on the nature of the fault/damage to your van. It is however more likely that your van will be scrapped at an ATF (Authorised Treatment Facility) that will dispose of the van and its components , recycling where possible.
