Frequently Asked Questions and Mini Works information

Do Mini Works take part exchange cars?

We would be pleased to consider your car in part exchange but you are likely to get a better price for it by trying to sell privately so try that first.

Do Mini Works offer a warranty?

All of our Mini's are provided with a comprehensive three month warranty which covers a wide range of mechanical failures and includes roadside assistance provided by the AA. Our warranty terms can be extended if required at a small additional cost.

Do Mini Works provide finance?

We do not provide finance for used cars. Please enquire at your bank or other lending institution about personel loans for cars. If your lender requires any information about the car you are interested in please ask us.

Are Mini Works cars well priced?

Our used Minis have been lovingly prepared and offer good value for money. The chart below shows the average asking price for a Mini Cooper by the year of registration as a guide to trends in used Mini prices.

Accident damaged cars

Some of the Minis we sell are cars that have been lightly accident damaged. These cars are classified as Category S (structural) or Category N (non structural) cars.

A car classified as Category N, the least serious insurance category, has been damaged enough for the insurance company to consider it uneconomical to repair. Category N Vehicles have suffered light bodywork damage and repair costs are considered by insurers to be less than the market value of the car.


 A Category N car won’t necessarily have sustained serious damage: because of how insurance claims are assessed, a car can be judged a write-off after a simple car-park scrape that would cost a few hundred pounds to repair. A Category S car is similar but the accident damage my extend to suspension parts as well as bodywork damage. We do not work with category S cars.


It is perfectly legal to repair such cars providing that repairs are carried out in a professional and responsible manner and that the car has been issued with a V5 document by the DVLA.


At Mini Works any accident damaged cars are professionally repaired using genuine BMW Mini parts and repainted by an insurer accredited body repair specialist. Each car is thoroughly mechanically checked prior to obtaining a 12 months MOT certificate.


Cars are presented for sale with a V5 document, a new 12 month MOT, a full report of past accident damage and details of the repairs that have been carried out. All repair and parts bills are available and we encourage potential buyers to carry out a full inspection by an independent engineer, the AA or RAC for example.
