Simply enter details about your vehicle and a few contact details about yourself. Then, within minutes we’ll email you an indicative valuation for your car. If you are happy with the valuation you just need to reply back to the email or give us a call to arrange a full inspection of the vehicle where a final offer will be calculated based on vehicle condition and paperwork present. Please see our How it works page for further details.

You will need two forms of identification. At least one form of identification should be photo and one must be for proof of address. We cannot accept one type of identification for both forms. An example being if you provide your driving licence as proof of photo then you must provide another proof of identification for your address such as utility bill or bank statement dated within 3 months. We will also need to see your bank card showing your sort code and account number in order to make payment into your account.

If correct identification is not provided, we will not be able to proceed with the appointment.

Unfortunately we do not buy vehicles without a V5C Registration Document. We suggest you contact the DVLA to order a duplicate document, more information can be found on the DVLA website.

We’re happy to buy your car with its cherished plate still on. However in the more likely event that you want to keep your plate, it’s easy to put it on retention. We can do this on your behalf when you sell your car to us. However there is a £80 DVLA fee which will be deducted from the purchase price of your vehicle.

Of course. We deal with finance settlements everyday, our team will guide you through the process when booking you in for a full inspection of your vehicle.

Certainly not. There are no transaction or administration fees when you choose to sell to us regardless of the value of your vehicle.
