Get valuation

‘Sell Your Car’ is our quick, easy and free way to sell your car online. We aim to give you a great price for your car without the hassle of haggling and time wasting.

If you’re looking to part-exchange your car, we’ll work out how much it will contribute towards the value of a car you’d like to buy from us.

How does it work?

On our website, you’ll see a handy valuation tool that is designed to give you a quick and fair estimate for your car based on the information you tell us about it. We’ll also factor in the current market value of your car, to make sure you get a fair valuation for it.

To get your valuation, you'll need to fill in a few details about your car in our valuation tool, including:

  • Registration number
  • Number of previous owners
  • Service history
  • Colour

Once you've entered these online, we'll show you how much we think your car is worth.

When you arrive for your appointment

You'll be offered a drink and a chat about how everything works. One of our trained associates members will inspect and test drive your car to confirm it’s value. 

What you need to bring with you

To make the process even simpler for you, we ask that you provide a few mandatory details so that we can make your buying experience even easier. All we ask that you provide is:

  • Your vehicle's registration
  • The current mileage of your car
  • Basic contact information

When it comes to having the car inspected by one of our advisors, we will need you to provide some further information and documentation. On assessment you will need:

  • Your Driving Licence
  • A bank statement – addressed to your name and current home address dated within 3 months
  • Vehicle Registration V5 Document
  • The service history records (if applicable)
  • Valid finance settlement letter - showing final settlement figure and finance company bank details (if applicable)
  • All keys - including spares
  • Any accessories related to the use of the vehicle i.e. user manuals, locking wheel nut key, memory cards etc
All of our cars have been given a 128-point inspection by an AA technician

They'll be checking:

  • Tyres
  • Paintwork
  • Dents
  • Performance

Once the inspection is done, our associates will take a look at your documents and give you a final offer for your car, which should only be different from your online valuation if there’s any extra damage or discrepancies in your car’s history. If you’re happy to sell, great! We’ll take the car, fill out some paperwork and get the cash on its way to your bank account.

Once you've sold

We'll help you inform the DVLA that you've sold your car to us. Hand over the keys and we'll send your payment. That’s it!
