What is a Write off Car?

A written-off car is a vehicle that is damaged extensively and the cost to fix it exceeds 60% of its market value and also a vehicle that is dangerous to be on roads. Even if it is safe to drive, cost of cosmetic damage may still be too much so insurance companies decide to write it off. A vehicle can also become written-off just by sitting on a driveway and rotting. Written-off cars are registered in the New South Wales system and they are not allowed to be registered again.


When does insurance write off a car?

Insurance companies have certain guidelines that they adhere to. Their job is to fix the car to how it was before the accident happened. However, in serious accidents where the car is heavily damaged, it costs more than 60% of the car’s value to fix it so they end up writing the car off.

Even if there isn’t extensive damage all over the car but one single expensive part is damaged, the vehicle can still be written-off. Prices of the parts and mechanic labour will play a role whether a car is getting written off or not. For instance, if a car gets a scrape on one side, the cost of repainting and repairing the car might be too high compared to its actual value. This is why there exist various categories of write-offs. It allows people to know which vehicles can still be sold or bought.
