What is a write-off?
A vehicle is considered a statutory write-off if it is declared as a total loss e.g. has severe structural or other damage or deterioration that prevents it from being driven safely on a road.
A vehicle is considered a repairable write-off if it has been assessed as being too costly to repair, but subject to state laws may be re-registered for road use if it has passed a vehicle safety and identity check.
