BMS Salvage will get you the best price for your model of Honda regardless of its location or condition. We’ll arrange free collection and fast payment.
Hondas, while perhaps known as somewhat of an ‘old person’s car’, at least when it comes to the Jazz, can certainly hold their heads high when the conversation turns to reliability. While the Civic, the S2000 and the NSX tries to bring Honda’s excitement up a level, there’s no denying that the Japanese brand is seen more as a sensible, dependable option. However, no matter how well a car is built, it isn’t indestructible and even Hondas can become difficult to maintain in their later years. Thankfully, you can get rid of these headaches by selling your Honda as salvage. Just give BMS Salvage a call on 023 8000 8800 and get your Honda valued now!

We bought this Honda Jazz after it failed an MOT and its owner was unable to get the problem repaired. The price we offered was more than double the scrap price.
Why Are Honda Sold As Salvage?
Hondas, like any manufacturer, are sold as salvage for a number of reasons, the most common of which will be as a result of accident damage or mechanical woes – particularly ones that have caused, or will cause, an MOT failure.
Despite their renowned reliability and build quality, there have been a few occasions where Honda has slipped up. This is particularly prevalent on the Honda Jazz, which has been subject to no fewer than two product recalls in its time, although neither of these pertained to the actual mechanical operation of the car, but some of the peripherals that are equally as important when driving – these being the power of the headlights (caused by a wiring problem) and rear seatbelts not locking correctly. Additionally, the Civic has been known to suffer from manifold cracks on models fitted with the 2.2 iCTDI engine.
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 Honda 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 Honda 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 Honda 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 Honda 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 Honda 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.
