Salvage Your Skoda Car

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

The Czech manufacturer Skoda has a sizeable foothold on the British automotive market, achieving good sales figures and populating our roads for much of the last century. Skoda is well known in its homeland for producing… almost every vehicle you see, from cars to trams! But, this trusted reliability doesn’t guarantee that your personal car is going to live forever. An accident could write it off immediately, but even if it avoids such a fate, wear and tear will surely get it eventually. What happens to those Skodas that 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 Skoda valued now!

Why Are Skodas Sold As Salvage?

Like every other vehicle on the market, Skoda 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.

Skodas may be one of the more reliable manufacturers out their, but they do still suffer with recurring problems. One of Skoda’s more popular models, the Fabia, suffered from stiff suspension that would regularly break, whilst also being plagued with fuel pump problems and an unreliable water temperature sensor. The Octavia also had issues of its own – the rear washer was known to leak, but more serious problems involved automatic gearboxes degrading at a rapid rate, while certain Octavias were even fitted with faulty rear wheel bearing that could shatter!

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 Skoda 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 Skoda 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 Skoda worth?

The value of a salvage Skoda 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 Skoda be collected?

We can collect your Skoda 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 Skoda 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 Skoda cars have you salvaged?
