That's what I want to know, why weren't they recorded how did this company come across them, isn't it illegal not to declare them write offs?

A write off in one mans opinion may not be a write off in anothers.

But surely they can not be offering more than the insurance company would give them? in some cases half the RRP of the vehicle? Obviously it's not a write off, slap a new slam panel on and new bumpers £14,000+ car

It's not an anything thread. You have posted no information whatsoever in the first post and THEN have the nerve to tell someone not to "spoil" your wonderful thread.

Useless poster.

But in answer to your question....."un-recorded" means that it wasn't entered on MIAFTR by the insurance company. It could be that their engineer saw it, deemed it to be beyond economical repair but the customer perhaps didn't proceed with the claim and it wasn't logged on MIAFTR.

Id it's not on MIAFTR it's not registered on HPI as a write off.

Most insurers ALWAYS enter "write-offs" but ocassionally there are circumstances where they aren't

So, it's not really anything to be worried about. It may need an MOT though and you'd need to check the seller has the full V5 too.

Its possible the damage is done whilst not insured, therefore no one to report it to. It can also be that the person decides tto sell on rather than claim and again it would not be recorded..
Not saying that either of these are the case but just two ways it can happen..

Nothing to worry about? Are you on something. A car that's probably had a very bad accident will be bought and repaired (probably bodged) then sold to some unsuspecting punter as an A1 motor, never had an accident etc. They later have an accident and are killed as the chassis is severely weakened. Back to the good old days of cut n shut.

Not sure why this is exired.. but anyway the unrecorded cars that have been damaged, and are owned by a company who run there own insurnace, like Hertz of somewhere like that. The issue with these cars is they often get repaired in some backstreet shop on the cheap then sold on. The buyer will never know it was previousley crash damaged as it was not recorded.
