NO, salvage value is subjective. The salvage price is usally set by bids. Depends. If it's salvage the price is very subjective. If it's salvage but reconstructed (i.e. roadworthy) it's typically worth 60% of the value of a comparable car with a clean title. Use and to determine appx value.

Salvage value is an estimate of the value of property at the end of its usefulness. It's the price that you'd get for it when you can't use it productively. How you use the property and for how long affect salvage value. If you let go of property while it's still in good operating condition, then the salvage value might be high. If you let go of property when it's not usable, its salvage value is its junk value. For more information, go to for Publication 534 (Depreciating Property Placed in Service Before 1987).

1. Estimated salvage value is the amount which is expected to be received from disposal of fully depreciated asset after useful life of asset.

Any vehicle, whether a total loss or not, has a value. A totaled vehicle, of course, has a significantly lesser value (assuming the actual total loss has already been settled with the vehicle owner). This value can be anywhere from 5 - 25% of the pre-loss value of the vehicle. If you decide to keep a totaled vehicle after settling with an insurance carrier, they can legally remove the salvage value from your settlement. It shouldn't be much, and you can request that they actually get a salvage quote from a salvage yard. The idea behind this is that you can't legally profit from a loss. In your case, if your totaled vehicle has a salvage value, and you're keeping the vehicle, the insurance carrier must deduct that salvage value. Otherwise, you will get a full settlement, and still retain a vehicle with some value. But...try working with the carrier on what that salvage amount is going to be. Sometimes they'll adjust it to get the loss settled, since you never "really" know what the salvage value is going to be until the vehicle is sold at a salvage yard auction.

Salvage vehicle value is highly subjective but if the car was properly reconstructed and is roadworthy it is worth roughly 60% of a comparable clean titled car. Go to to get an idea of the car's value. If it's salvage but not roadworthy, maybe 25% of the value of a comparable clean titled car.

The salvage value will always be more in the case of written down value method as compared to straight line method. Presently written down value methods are given importance.
