What else can you find out with a van check?

If the van has been written off, there are some categories that we should consider before buying. Usually Cat D is the most preferred because it has non-structural damage, mostly small dents and scrapes along with damage that doesn't really affect the van's road worthiness.


If a van is damaged structurally, it would be in the C category (it has structural damage and requires more money than car's actual price to fix it). A Cat B van is most likely to be salvaged, since it would cost too much to repair and a Cat A is something you should stay away from because there is nothing left to salvage and the van should be set for scrapping.


There is a category F for vans and pickups that have been damaged by fire, which the insurer can refuse to repair, since it is not just a simple damage, there are situations where the fire damage might have screwed up crucial parts; metal embrittlement that goes unnoticed is dangerous.


There is a change in the way Cat C and Cat D are now represented, they are better known as Cat S and Cat N respectively. While performing a van check, make sure that you know what category it belongs to. A free car history check can help you make an informed decision while buying used vehicles.
