End of life Vehicles
The BVSF have been passed a document relating to the Metal recycling sector, primarily to do with end of life vehicles and felt that it was prudent to place this on the website for all to see. The writer, Tania Tucker has recently spent the day with me at a members premises seeing for herself differences in Vehicle Categorisation.
I will of course advise as further news is available as the scheme progresses.
Should any members have any comments or questions please feel free to ask in the normal way.
Salvage Code & VIC Abolition
"The BVSF have just received the following letter from the Department for Transport, all members are to be advised that the fight for "realism" continues, we, at the BVSF will not support the the "new" Salvage Code of Practice until sense is seen, clearly the existing document is written by the Insurers, for the Insurers with no thought for our industry. We need a Category A, we need to be able to sell underplayed and tested airbags and we don't need a notation on the V5 of Category N vehicles, amongst other issues. One good thing that appears to have come out of this fiasco is that the VIC scheme is no more and that V5's will no longer be available on "break only" vehicles."
