If a car has been in an accident it may be written off because the cost of repairs will likely exceed the value of the car.
It will be given a Cat S listing, which until October 2017 known as a Cat C listing, if it is uneconomical to repair because it has suffered structural damage to any part of the vehicle's structural frame, including the chassis.
But a Cat S write-off can be repaired and can be perfectly safe to drive.
Insurers often sell Cat S write-offs for salvage. Many people opt to buy write-offs such as these or to have their own Cat S write-off repaired, reinsured and put back on the road.
There are many reasons for this. If you already own the car, it may hold sentimental value, be one of a kind, or you may think the former write-off would be cheaper to repair than buying a new car - because of that, many people are looking for cheap Cat S motor insurance.
