Selling A Non-Running Car With Us

Most car buyers will not buy the cars we buy because they cannot repair them, which is why our unique blend of advanced mechanical engineering and an easy sales process is so appealing.

At Selling A Cat N Car, we are always on the lookout for category n cars for sale, or preferably cars that are about to be declared “cat n”. The cat n car status often refers to when water has entered the vehicles engine. Once inside, the water has then caused it to hydraulic and fail. This can leave you with a non-running vehicle and an unsatisfying insurance claim. That is, unless you have the bright idea of selling your car to us instead! Our engineers previously worked at McLaren and for other performance car brands, so we know all kinds of cars inside out. We painstakingly restore damaged cars and sell them on for a small profit, so that you get a better deal than just writing the car off as cat N. We give cars a new life and save them from the scrapheap, so some customers hire us to repair cars. However, due to the extensive damage that has been caused to some vehicles, they can require very expensive parts and incur heavy labour costs, so selling to us is usually the best option.

Understanding The Cat N Meaning

We don’t expect that everyone will immediately know what the cat n car meaning is. Once your car’s engine has become defunct, for example from water damage, this is what qualifies it as a cat n car. The “N” means non runner, as in the engine will not run, making the car useless without repairs or a new engine. A lot of insurance companies will write off cars as category N, just because they either cannot find specialist repairs garages, or it is not worth it financially. Our high-performance engine specialists can save your car from being declared cat N, and sell it on as a repaired car that is road legal and safe. The costs of these repairs are usually too high for customers, which is why insurance companies want to declare the car a write off, but you can still profit by selling to us.
