For businesses in the auto trade (garage mechanics, breaker's, etc.), as well as auto enthusiasts, Alcopa Auction organises auctions of non-runner vehicles, which are not roadworthy as a result of a breakdown or an accident.
Whether it is at an auction centre or on our website, you will find a wide choice of non-runner cars (total damage or technical damage). Vehicles of all makes and types (vans, lorries, 4x4's, etc.), which have been in an accident, available for sale at auction. You can recover the spare parts from these write-offs which you can pick up with or without registration documents.
Non-runner vehicles with bodywork in perfect condition, which have suffered technical faults, are also available for sale at auction (broken engine, broken clutch or broken gearbox). The opportunity to acquire a very good-looking model at a cheaper price.
How are non-runner vehicle auctions run?
Most of the sales in the auction centres begin with the viewings of the non-runner vehicles. During our auctions of non-runner vehicles, some undergo a "VE" (damaged vehicle) procedure or a "VEI" (write-off) procedure. Consequently, some models may have some bodywork damage while nevertheless being considered to be a runner vehicle. Other vehicles at auction, which have been in an accident, may have technical problems with a broken engine and are considered to be non-runner vehicles. These vehicles fall into the "salvage" category.
A detailed description is drawn up for each car with a list of the damage and its technical characteristics. On the Alcopa Auction website, you will have access to many photos so that you can evaluate these damaged or non-runner vehicles at auction for yourself.
