What to look for

Not all insurance write-offs get scrapped. But even if they're repaired, they're worth a lot less than they would be otherwise.


Imported cars are harder and more expensive to insure. Check where your car comes from before you buy it.

Engine size

Powerful engines tend to be more expensive to insura. Some insurers won't cover big engines at all.

Insurance groups

All UK cards go in an insurance group between 1 and 50. Higher groups tend to be more expensive to insure.

MOT history

Cars become about 20% less valuable without an MOT. Before you buy, make sure there's a valid MOT.

Transferring insurance

When you buy a new car, you can usually switch your insurance over. But it can be a lot more expensive.
