Have insurance write-off categories changed?

Yes, Cat C and D no longer exist - the system changed in 2017. The categories are now Cat A, must be destroyed no salvageable parts, Cat B Breaker, the shell must be destroyed but parts can be salvaged. Cat S Structural damage and Cat N non-structural damage.
