Just sold my car: The story behind our new campaign

Earlier this year, we decided on the theme for our latest TV and radio ad campaign: a celebration of that air-punching moment when you’ve sold your car - and the cash is on its way!

We knew that the soundtrack had to be instantly recognisable and catchy enough to get everyone dancing in their living rooms. After trawling through our playlists, we decided that Riton and Nightcrawlers’ ‘Friday’ captured the vibe perfectly – it just needed reworking to convey our message. Our studio team did us proud and quickly turned around a fresh take on ‘Friday’ (featuring our own lyrical twist), which can be heard throughout our new TV and radio ads.

We had our second ‘Eureka’ moment when we remembered who made ‘Friday’ such a hit in the first place - Mufasa (a.k.a. Jeff Obeng). No other star can match the energy, humour and dancing swagger of the man behind the ‘Friday dance’ – which is precisely why we recruited him to launch our campaign.

However, although Mufasa will be kicking things off in his inimitable style, in a departure from our previous star-powered campaigns, we also wanted to shine the spotlight on our customers - the everyday superstars who make the car-buying world go round.

To pay tribute to our customer base, who hail from all demographics and drive every car model you could imagine, we created five relatable shorts, featuring true-to-life characters navigating the car-selling process - and reaching their own ‘Just Sold My Car’ moments!

The new faces of our campaign include:

  • A lively family, including a mum, dad, two kids (and their cheeky dog) who can’t wait to upgrade to a roomier car.
  • Pete and Jane – a quirky couple with ‘moves like Jagger’.
  • Mark, a luxury car owner – and his friend Dave, who can’t quite believe we’re buying his prestige motor.
  • Rebecca, a high-flyer who secures the best price for her car with our buyers.
  • Ava, a city professional who sells her car with outstanding finance to trade up to her dream soft-top.

Watch out for all these characters and their car-selling stories on your TV screens in early 2023!

'30-second quote' featuring Naomi & family

In this lively ad, we meet a busy family (mum, Naomi, dad, Chris – and the kids, Amber and Lisa) who are visiting their local webuyanycar branch. With their cheeky dog, ‘Barley’ on board, the family are struggling for room in their standard hatchback. Luckily, their space shortage woes will soon be over …

“It only took 30 seconds to get a quote!” says Naomi.

“What does that mean?”, asks Amber.

“We’re getting a bigger car!” Chris exclaims.

The whole family (including ‘Barley’) can’t resist celebrating there and then; Naomi, Amber and Lisa even break into dance!

It all started when Naomi got a 30-second quote from webuyanycar.com.

'3 simple steps' featuring Pete & Jane

In this fun-packed ad, we join Pete and Jane, a cheerful couple who have driven down to their local webuyanycar branch. Pete can’t quite believe how easy it was to sell their car - and recounts the ‘3 simple steps’ from their car-selling journey:

  • Get a quote in 30 seconds

    First, Pete got a 30-second valuation for his car by visiting webuyanycar.com and entering his reg number and mileage!

  • Drive to your local branch

    Next, after booking an appointment, Pete and Jane made the 13-minute drive to their nearest webuyanycar branch.

  • Cash in the bank!

    Following a quick in-person valuation with our friendly buyers, Pete sold the car – and the cash was sent to his bank account on the very same day!

    Pete has a spring in his step (and even busts a few impressive dance moves) as he hands his keys to our buyer.

    Want to sell your car without the hassle? Follow Pete’s 3 simple steps to get the cash in your account without delay.

 

‘Better than a part-exchange’ - featuring Rebecca

In this upbeat ad, we meet Rebecca, a high-achiever who is ready to make the switch to a brand-new car. At first, Rebecca thought part-exchanging at her local dealership might be the way to go, but didn’t want to rush into anything before she had considered all her options.

A quick online search led her to webuyanycar, which turned out to be a real game-changer.

First, Rebecca entered her reg number and mileage to get a quote in under 30 seconds. The price was right, so she made an appointment and drove to her local branch with her friend in tow. Finally, she sold her car to one of our friendly buyers at a price she loved.

Now, after realising the sale’s in the bag - and the money’s on the way to her bank, Rebecca can’t resist throwing a few shapes!

So, if like Rebecca, you’re ready to sell your motor, make sure you get a free car valuation from webuyanycar before committing. You just might be glad you did!
