About us

webuyanycar was founded in 2006 with the aim of offering a simple, user-friendly car-buying service – and an alternative to selling privately, to a dealership or through part-exchange.

Since then, more than 3.5 million drivers have chosen to sell their car with us – and helped to cement our position as the UK’s favourite car buying service!

Drive to your local branch for your appointment and our buyers will confirm your valuation. If you’re happy with our offer, we’ll arrange payment to your chosen bank account!

Early years (2006-2009)

webuyanycar was founded in 2006 by Noel and Darren McKee with the aim of offering a fast, dependable car buying service – and an alternative to part-exchange and traditional private car selling.

Our intuitive website and convenient service quickly caught on with the motoring public. In 2009, we launched our very first TV ad campaign, which featured a breakdancing newsreader. As brand awareness grew, so did demand; in the same year, our 100,000th customer sold their car with us!

webuyanyvan joins the family (2010)

In 2010, we expanded into a new market – and started offering used van owners the same proven service as our car-selling customers through our sister website, webuyanyvan.

Continued growth and success (2013-2019)

In 2013, webuyanycar was sold to the used car marketplace, British Car Auctions (BCA) – and in 2015, BCA was floated on the UK stock market.

In November 2019, private equity group, TDR Capital completed the purchase of webuyanycar’s parent company, BCA.


3.5 million customers and beyond (2022-2023)

After many months of hard work, we finally launched our fun-packed ‘Just Sold My Car’ TV and radio campaign on Christmas Day 2022. The ads feature impressive footwork by Mufasa and a line-up of everyday superstars – and a catchy reimagining of ‘Friday’ by Riton and Nightcrawlers.

By the time we welcomed 2023, the irresistible jingle had already become a hit with the viewing public. (It even made it to the terraces by the summer when a creative West Ham fan reworked the lyrics to honour Lucas Paquetá!)

We hit another big milestone in October 2023, when our 3,500,000th customer sold their car with us. Here’s to many more!
