BMS Salvage will get you the best price for your model of Toyota regardless of its location or condition. We’ll arrange free collection and fast payment.
Toyota’s current motto is “Let’s Go Places” which is something that the Japanese manufacturer’s cars are typically very good at. Noted for their reliability and immense popularity (with the Corolla being the world’s best-selling motor) Toyotas can indeed get their drivers from A to B with little worry, but they’re not invincible. Wear and tear even affects these cars and there’s always the possibility that a lapse in concentration or another careless road user might write result in your car being written off. If the worst should happen, or time simply catches up with your car, you might be left wondering what you should do with it next. 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 Toyota valued now!

We bought this Toyota RAV4 after a catastrophic mechanical failure rendered it too expensive for the owner to repair. The price we offered was more than double the scrap price.
Why Are Toyotas Sold As Salvage?
Like every other vehicle on the market, Toyota 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.
Toyotas are known for being well-made machines, but there are a number of common problems that we see regularly when dealing with these cars. Corollas have notoriously vulnerable suspension which is susceptible to damage, while certain RAV4 models were prone to the dreaded head gasket failure. The Yaris, one of the company’s more popular models in the UK, often suffers with gearbox problems and struggles when shifting through lower gears. Many models, including the Yaris, Aygo and Auris are also prone to brake problems, even suffering with reduced braking performance in some cases!
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 Toyota 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 Toyota 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 Toyota 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 Toyota 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 Toyota 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.
We’ve seen just about every Toyota model from the past 30 years including the Yaris, Prius, RAV4, Celica, Avensis, IQ, and MR2 Roadster. The most common Toyota models we salvage are the Aygo, RAV4 XT-R and the Prius T Spirit. The average year of original registration was 2007, giving Toyotas an average 16 year lifecycle – slightly higher than many other models.
