Salvage Cars

Welcome to this Directory of Salvage Cars. It can be very difficult to find ‘Damaged repairable cars’ and ‘Salvage cars’ and we will endeavour to provide more meat and less bones. We are only listing Businesses that actually ‘have’ cars as opposed to the many agencies who want to find a car and then take their slice 🙂 Also note that we have not included the scrapping of cars or scrap-age unless the Business listed deals with these sectors also.

You can try a text search by ‘Area’ or ‘Town’ or ‘Postcode’ and if we have missed you out, please contact us.

Salvage cars come in all shapes and sizes. See if you can grab a Bargain Today!
