What Is a Car Write-Off Check UK?
When a car is involved in an accident or stolen and then recovered, insurance companies will assess the damage or loss and decide whether to repair the vehicle or write it off. If the cost of repairing the car is more than its value, the insurance company will declare it a write-off and pay out the market value of the car instead.
What kind of information does your Write-Off check show?
A typical Car Write-Off Check would provide the following information:
- Whether the vehicle has been declared a total loss by an insurance company
- The category of write-off assigned to the vehicle (such as Category A, B, C, D, S or N)
- The reason for the write-off (such as damage, theft or fire)
- The severity of the damage, if applicable
- The date of the write-off
- The current status of the vehicle (such as if it has been repaired and is back on the road)
- Details of any outstanding finance on the vehicle
- Any previous owners of the vehicle
- Mileage readings and MOT history, if available
- Any other relevant information about the vehicle’s history that may impact its safety, value or legality.
