BMS Salvage will get you the best price for your model of Land Rover regardless of its location or condition. We’ll arrange free collection and fast payment.
Land Rovers are known for their rugged capabilities and their quality in driving over jagged terrain as well as the manicured tarmac of main roads. However, while they may be durable, they are just as susceptible to breakages, be it from an accident or just mechanical woes. Despite their known qualities off-road, Land Rovers do not have the best reputation when it comes to reliability in general, and if your Land Rover is teetering on the edge, then selling as salvage might seem like the best option for you. Just give BMS Salvage a call on 023 8000 8800 and get your Land Rover valued now!

We bought a Land Rover Discovery just like this one 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 Land Rovers Sold As Salvage?
A Land Rover, just like any vehicle, is subject to general wear and tear, and sooner or later will finally reach its own specific breaking point. This could be because of an accident, or it could be technical issues that could force it to fail an upcoming MOT – if it hasn’t already done so.
While physically Land Rovers can hold their own against almost any car manufacturer on the market, they have been known to suffer from the odd electrical gremlin over the years. For example, the electric handbrake on the Discovery has been known to fail, whilst the Range Rover can often find the motors for the front door locking mechanism giving up on it. The Freelander has been most prone to issues, however, with electric windows failing and a stuck sunroof the most common culprits, along with uneven tyre wear and a rear aperture seal that regularly lets in water.
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 Land Rover 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 Land Rover 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 Land Rover 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 Land Rover 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 Land Rover 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.
