    Default Car insurance. When your car is a write off...

    Does anyone know if you get to keep your car when it becomes a write off after an accident? (after making an insurance claim)

    As a general rule, no but in some instances you can buy it back from the insurance company.

    As Tinks said, generally accepting the payout makes the car the property of the insurance company.

    you can however find out where they auction off wrecks (Pickles Auctions for example and buy it back at the auction.
