Salvage Your Hyundai Car

BMS Salvage will get you the best price for your model of Hyundai regardless of its location or condition. We’ll arrange free collection and fast payment.

While Hyundai may be known for its well built cars today, it used to have quite a different reputation in the UK. The cars were somewhat ridiculed in the ’90s, rarely being listed on recommended vehicle lists unlike their hugely successful models of today. If you’ve got one of these old Hyundais, chances are it’s beginning to come to the end of its usable life, and it’s quite likely that offloading will be the most sensible and cost-effective option for you. Just give BMS Salvage a call on 023 8000 8800 and get your Hyundai valued now!

We bought this crash damaged Hyundai Getz 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 Hyundais Sold As Salvage?

Much like all vehicles on the roads, there is a wide range of reasons a Hyundai will be sold as salvage. Some of the more common reasons could include irreparable damage from an accident, or simply the car reaching the end of its usable life.

While Hyundai may enjoy a good reputation for well built cars and its unlimited mileage warranty, it wasn’t always the case, and it’s fair to say that it has some skeletons in its closet when it comes to mechanical maladies. Not least was the i30 when its handbrakes were prone to getting stuck, leading to a product recall. Other struggles include immobiliser problems creating difficult starting conditions for the i10 and the i20, which is known to have power steering issues. The older models, such as the Getz and Accent are also known to have stiff gear changes and ignition coil failure respectively.

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 Hyundai 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

How is salvaging different to scrapping?

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 Hyundai 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.

How much is my Hyundai worth?

The value of a salvage Hyundai 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.

How quickly can my Hyundai be collected?

We can collect your Hyundai 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.

How does payment work?

Payment is released in full on the day your Hyundai 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.

Which Hyundai cars have you salvaged?

We’ve seen just about every Hyundai model from the past 30 years including the Hyundai i10, i20, i30, i40, ix20, ix35, Tuscon, Terracan, Santa Fe, Veloster, and Ioniq. The most common Hyundai models we salvage are the i10 Classic, i10 Comfort and i20 Comfort. The average year of original registration was 2011, giving Citroens an average 12 year lifecycle.
