One of the biggest names in the automotive industry, Ford has been at the top of the game since cars were a thing.

But, with millions upon millions of Fords driving around, and with the inevitability of car’s expiring at some point, it’s no surprise that we provide quotes to Ford owners on a daily basis. If your car or van is starting to struggle, just give BMS Salvage a call on 023 8000 8800 and we’ll get your Ford valued straight away!

We bought this crash damaged Ford Fiesta when the owner’s insurer considered it a Category N (non-structural) write off. The price we offered was more than double the scrap price.
Why Are Fords Sold As Salvage?
All vehicles have a shelf life, and sooner or later even the most ardent of vehicle owners is going to have to accept that it’s just not worth the hassle keeping their Ford on the road any longer. Whether it’s crash damage or a mechanical fault that’s caused you to fail an MOT, there are many reasons that can result in your Ford needing to be salvaged.
Despite its reputation as one of the biggest car brands in the world, Ford has had some mechanical defects over the years that have affected a number of car owners. The Focus, for example, was subject to two recalls in the space of three years across the turn of the millennium, with models in 1999 having airbag issues, and then a brake hose fault on RS models in 2002. That same year, Fiestas were recalled due to faulty welding on the rear axle, an area that caused another recall 10 years later when the mounting bolts in 2012 were not up to specification.
A car that would be considered a write off by your insurance company might fetch more as salvage if you were to retain it and sell it yourself. Of course, if it’s been involved in a particularly serious smash, it’s unlikely that there will be much left to salvage, so the scrap route might be more appropriate. If your motor has only suffered isolated damage however, components from other areas should still be in working order and able to be stripped out and reused in other cars. If it’s deemed safe to do this, you could end up with a better price for your car than you anticipated.
Your Ford could also have suffered a major mechanical fault or MOT failure which will leave you with a huge bill to pay. In this instance, many drivers simply sell their car as salvage as they can’t afford the repairs and it would be almost impossible to find a serious buyer for it privately.
On the other hand, you might have a car that’s in decent condition that you just don’t need anymore. If you fall into this category of drivers but don’t want the hassle of trying to sell the car privately, you could have it shifted and money in your account within just a few days by getting in touch with BMS Salvage.
Frequently asked Questions
Salvaging is the process in which someone buys car ‘as is’ as its value is likely higher than the scrap price. Whereas scrap prices are based on weight, your Ford could be salvaged if the car as a whole or parts of the car are in high demand from buying agents throughout the UK. Selling your car for salvage is nearly always guaranteed to get you more money for your end of life vehicle.
The value of a salvage Ford can be impacted by a number of factors. The age, mileage and general condition of the vehicle will have an impact on how much you’ll make from your car when it’s time to sell, with cars that contain more reusable parts typically worth more than a similar model that’s got less components left in it to be transplanted to other vehicles.
We can collect your Ford as quickly as 24 hours after completing your booking with us. However it’s more likely that the collection would happen 48 to 72 hours after booking. We’ll have a professional car collection agent inspect and safely pick up your car from its location.
Payment is released in full on the day your Ford is collected. This usually happens within a few hours of collection but could be processed at the end of the working day. When your vehicle is collected the collecting agent will inspect the vehicle to ensure it is as described. So long as the vehicle matches our records then payment is made via BACS and with you the same day.
