Nissan claims that there cars feature “innovation that excites” and generally speaking, this is true – the Japanese manufacturer is known for bringing new technology to the automotive world; after all, this is the company that gave the world the pioneering LEAF electric vehicle. However, no matter how modern or revolutionary a vehicle is, it’s inevitable that one day it’ll fall behind the times of the ever-progressing tech world. Or, it might end up breaking down after severe wear and tear, or even being written off in an accident! What happens to those cars once it’s time to take them off the road? Many of them are sold as salvage, and yours can be too. Just give BMS Salvage a call on 023 8000 8800 and get your Nissan valued now!

We bought this Nissan Note after it had aged to the point that its owner no longer wanted it – instead, they sold it to fund a newer motor! The price we offered was more than double the scrap price.
Why Are Nissans Sold As Salvage?
Like every other vehicle on the market, Nissan cars are sold as salvage for numerous reasons. The most common reasons include vehicle damage, likely suffered after an accident, and excessive wear and tear after years of use.
Nissan might have some of the best selling cars in the UK, but that doesn’t mean they’re invincible. Some of the more common problems found have included issues with Nissans stalling and refusing to restart along with faulty gearboxes that continuously slip across a number of models. We’ve also seen Nissans with clutch issues, with the Juke and Primera notorious for suffering premature wear. Certain Qashqais also had serious problems which still lead them to be salvaged, like front suspension failure that can cause the car to lose control and a susceptibility to oil and fuel leaks on diesel models specifically.
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 Nissan 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 Nissan 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 Nissan 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 Nissan 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 Nissan 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.
