Places you can sell cars that have been written-off and the legal terms related to such issues
- To reduce the growing rates in cases of stealing and theft of vehicles, along to improve road safety and consumer protection, the Government of New South Wales (NSW) passed a new law. The law has been in effect since the 31st of January, 2011.
- According to this new law, a car that cannot be repaired and has been entirely written-off by way of an assessment cannot be registered, and it has to be used as scrap metal or for its parts.
- This law applies to cars, motorcycles, trailers, caravans, etc. and all other light-vehicles that are up to 15 years old, in NSW. A vehicle that has a weight of fewer than 4.5 tonnes gross vehicle mass (GVM) and can be registered is known as a light vehicle.
- The number of vehicles that are written-off every year is more than 3000 vehicles, in just NSW. The frequent purchase of old cars, cosmetic repairs and sale of the same cars at higher prices was one of eth main reasons that led the government to realize that a change was needed in the existing law.
- This law is strictly enforced in cases of cars that have been written-off, and presently, the new term used for RTA is RMS. This offers an opportunity for car wreckers to purchase the written-off cars and use its parts and scrap metal.
