BMS Salvage will get you the best price for your model of Renault regardless of its location or condition. We’ll arrange free collection and fast payment.
French cars have a bad reputation. Whether it’s deserved or not, isn’t for us to say – every driver has their favourite and least favourite manufacturers and it’s safe to say that Renault might feature on the latter for more people than the former. Regardless of reputation, it’s a fact of life that one day these machines will give out and their owners will be left looking for a way to exchange their broken car for something that’s still in working order. What happens to those cars once they can no longer be kept running? 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 Renault valued now!

We bought this old Renault Clio when the owner decided it was finally time for something new. The price we offered was more than double the scrap price.
Why Are Renaults Sold As Salvage?
Like every other vehicle on the market, Renault 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.
There are, perhaps unsurprisingly, quite a few common problems that we see in the Renaults that we purchase. The immensely popular Clio is notorious for suffering with ABS issues, a problem that could even end up being a dangerous one, whereas the Megane has been the subject of not one but three major product recalls after it was found to have a faulty catalytic converter and serious fuel leaks! There are even some bizarre ‘problems’ that Renault deliberately installed in the name of security, like the late-90s Scenic having to have its engine started within 30 seconds of it being unlocked, or else the vehicle would ‘play dead’ and refuse to start at all. While that strange feature may not have solely resulted in someone salvaging their vehicle, we’re sure it might have led to a few embarrassing breakdown recovery callouts.
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 Renault 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 Renault 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 Renault 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 Renault 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 Renault 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.
