Torrential rain in the north west of England has done untold damage to houses and buildings in the area. In addition to damaging homes and businesses, flooding has caused significant damage to vehicles and cars, with some even being swept away.
Crews from the Royal National Lifeboat Institute and local firefighters were called in to help rescue drivers and deal with cars that were swept away by rising water levels. The rainfall, which was measured at a rate of 8mm per hour, was even moving cars which were still occupied, hence the cause for concern.
When freak weather occurs, the initial cause for concern is, of course, the safety of people and animals. It is often only after the storm has passed that people can re-gain access to their properties and assess how much damage has been caused.
The recent flooding in Manchester and North Yorkshire left many people needing repairs to both their homes and their vehicles. Although properties can recover from flood damage, often the damage done to cars and vehicles in such weather means that they can’t be repaired cost effectively.
In some instances, cars won’t start at all after being submerged in flood water whilst other may start but aren’t safe to drive for any significant distance. If your car has been affected by the bad weather and flooding, you may be considering how to dispose of it effectively.
