The Association of British Insurers (ABI) has published its updated Code of Practice for the UK insurance industry to handle vehicle salvage incidents. The code, which came into effect on 1st October 2017, was much needed as the previous code was last reviewed a decade ago.
The ABI spent two years engaging with various stakeholders about how the new Code of Practice should be designed. Everyone from insurers and vehicle manufacturers through to police and professionals within the vehicle salvage industry were asked to contribute to create a code of conduct that’s fit for purpose today and in the years to come.

If you don’t have a bottomless pit of money, the chances are you may well be priced out of the new car market. That’s not the end of the world however. Purchasing a brand-new car is not always the most sensible investment given that its value falls markedly from the moment you drive it off the forecourt.
A more cost-effective alternative to purchasing a new car – one which offers fantastic value for money – is to acquire a salvage car.

At ASM, we help modern motorists manage their driving finances. Car salvage auctions are one of the main services that we offer, our online salvage auction offers over 2,500 cars, vans and motorbikes for sale every week and we have a further 1,500 vehicles for parts dismantling. Today, we’re going to explain how any driver can benefit from purchasing a salvage vehicle from us.
Put simply, a salvaged car is one that an insurance company no longer considers fit for use on the road in its current state. If a vehicle has been in an accident, stolen or weather-damaged and repairs will cost more than the vehicle is worth, the insurance company will write it off and take possession.

A lot of people still aren’t aware of the potential money they can make from recycling their car. For too long recycling facilities or scrap yards have been labelled as places visited by people looking for a quick fix or wishing to use the area as a dumping ground for their old vehicles.
But at ASM Auto Recycling we have always championed the value in used car parts and how motorists can save significant maintenance costs and be good to the environment just by making the most of salvage parts from end-of-life or damage-repairable vehicles.
