Nothing like that unfortunately, would be good as the repair of some written off motors I've seen leaves a lot to be desired! What's even worse is some of the newer more expensive motors that have taken a good smack but were never written off!I thought a Vic check measured chassis/body geometry?
It completely depends on the value of the car, a £500 snotter would be Cat C with not too much damage, a £25,000 motor would need a bit more than a couple of panels replacing to warrant the same category.My golf got cat c and I took to damage was just body work :/ it silly what they cat c some stuff
It used to be like that but it's not like that any more you do get the odd ones but the hardest ones can be cat d because of the value of the motorIt completely depends on the value of the car, a £500 snotter would be Cat C with not too much damage, a £25,000 motor would need a bit more than a couple of panels replacing to warrant the same category.
It hasn't changed at all.It used to be like that but it's not like that any more you do get the odd ones but the hardest ones can be cat d because of the value of the motor
It all depends on the assessor if he thinks it should be cat c or d but some of them dnt no there elbo from there bum
Category A Insurance Write Off - the vehicle must scrapped and no parts or components can be sold other than for scrap. Amounts vary but Category A Insurance Write Off vehicles can be very valuable.

Category B Insurance Write Off - the vehicle must not be used again but non- structural and roadworthy parts and components may be recovered for use in other vehicles. Care must be taken to ensure that they are not critical components with important safety functions. Again there are several online companies who will offer significant amounts of money for Category B Insurance Write Off vehicles.
Category C Insurance Write Off - the vehicle is repairable but the parts and labour would exceed the value of the car. This is a tricky situation as there are plenty of amateur and professional mechanics who could use second hand parts to repair these vehicles at much lower prices than the list costs for parts and labour. Discuss this with your insurance company if you want to keep the car rather than have it written off.
Category D Insurance Write Off - the vehicle is economically repairable but other factors are involved that cause the insurer to declare the vehicle a write off. Perhaps the replacement car hire is too costly or it will take too long for a specialist part to be delivered. Again, discuss this with your insurance company if you want to keep the car.
