That is normally something that would need to be negotiated before accepting the settlement. They might accept you doing so if you were to get another Mini interior to fit in its place, but really, once an offer is accepted, the vehicle including all its fittings and accessories becomes the property of the insurance company.can I take out the interior as its excellent or does the car have to be complete?.
I can't see why anyone would feel the need to retain the keys and plips - the insurance company will ask for them as they are added value for the salvage - the locks and alarm system don't have much value to a breaker without them......And #I do not think you have to give them all the keys and fobs either ..........Do not forget to ask for the certificate that is required when a car is scrapped
As the car has been written off by the insurance company, and they are paying out, it becomes their property, so a copy of the certificate of destruction will be issued to the insurance company (it may not be issued for a while - it will probably go through a salvage auction and then sit in a breakers for some months.
The insurance company will require the complete V5C, so once it has been taken, the tax disc should be returned to DVLA Swansea. It should be accompanied by a completed form V14, and a covering letter stating that the vehicle has been declared a total loss by the insurance company, and that it and the V5C have been passed to them (and giving the company details in the letter). Failing to do this could result in problems if the insurer or ultimate buyer of the salvage don't do their paperwork correctly.
