Its a bit difficult to say exactly - it depends how old the car is and where the damage is? A £6000 car could be advertised at £3000 to £4000

How it depreciates is a harder question to answer. If the repairs are done to a high standard it shouldn't make a huge amount of difference on the resale, the depreciation should be the same as a normal car.

Reselling your car can prove difficult too as many won't want to buy a cat n,s car - Cheap to buy and cheap to sell

Some good cheap bargains can be had, sometimes about 30 to 50% lower price than non damaged used cars

However - some insurance companies won't insure either category. Some insurance companies require a structural engineer to inspect your car, others just ask for another MOT test.

Oh deep joy
