37. Category of Salvage
All vehicles sold by Douglas Valley Breakers Ltd are categorised as
A,B,C,D,U,X where Douglas Valley Breakers Ltd have indicated the category
this may not be the actual category that is applied to the vehicle. It is
the buyer's responsibility to ensure that they make an HPI GOLD check on any
vehicles so that if a category is added at a later date or a category
changed then recourse via HPI's Insurance scheme can be made by the buyer.
The buyer should also check with the DVLA that the vehicle can legally be
returned to the road and that the Secretary of State for Transport has not
refused the issue of a replacement registration document.
Douglas Valley Breakers Ltd will not be held liable for any category changes, wrong categories applied to vehicles via our web site, auction disposal sites or physical sales site or references made by sales staff to categories. The liability is placed with the buyer for vehicles that are not categorised or not shown on HPI and these vehicles may in the future appear as categorised. On occasion vehicles may be categorised twice on HPI as the claim involves two vehicles and two separate insurance companies. This can result in the vehicle being listed as a category D by one insurer and a Category C by another for the same claim.
Douglas Valley Breakers Ltd will not be held liable for category changes, wrong categories, or double categorisation or consequential loss or damages suffered by a category change or addition.
All vehicles are sold as scrap for spares or repair and no warranty is given to the scrap or to the category applied to the vehicle. Douglas Valley Breakers Ltd will also accept no liability for previous categories applied to a damaged vehicle. Often vehicles have been written off several times and it is the buyers responsibility to make all the necessary checks with HPI, Experian and the DVLA into the vehicle's history. It is also the responsibility of all buyers to make sure that a VIC inspection is not required for the vehicle, this can be done by calling or writing to the DVLA. Douglas Valley Breakers Ltd accept no liability for vehicles sold that require further VIC inspections to obtain the registration document.
If the buyer is in any doubt after making the various checks then DON'T proceed with the sale. In order to prevent vehicle crime, categories may not be recorded but then added at a later date. Target vehicles exist and are often not categorised. These vehicles may then be subject to police and DVLA inspections before the V5 is issued. Douglas Valley Breakers Ltd will not be held liable for the costs of an inspection or addition of the category on a target vehicle.
38. Privacy Statement
If you send us correspondence, including emails and faxes, we may retain such information in the records of your account.
