We saw the sad pictures on TV following the floods in various parts of the country. People’s homes were wrecked with thousands of pounds of damage caused to furniture and possessions.

Thinking of a change but unsure as to the best way to finance your car? Then you need a copy of my car finance book, Car Finance – A Simple Guide by Graham Hill. Click on the link below to buy the best car finance book on the market, available as a Kindle Book and Paper Back.

But what about all the cars we saw up to their bonnets in muddy water. Many would be subject to insurance claims and be paid out with a large number being written off according to the AA. And if a car is written off they are subjected to some very stringent rules before, if ever, they are allowed back on the road.

But it would seem that many drivers either didn’t make a claim or couldn’t because their policy didn’t cover them for flood damage. They simply dried the car out, maybe changed the carpets and have been selling them privately or through auction, possibly ending up on dealer forecourts.

Amazingly 70% of all cars that have been submersed in water are written off due to engine damage or electrical safety problems. Water can also seriously damage air bags and catalytic converters, something you may not notice when buying a used car. So be very careful if you are buying a used car, you might find yourself buying an ex flood damaged car. By Graham Hill
