What to expect at your appointment

  1. Arrive with your vehicle at your chosen branch location and at your scheduled appointment slot. Our vehicle purchaser will be waiting to greet you.
  2. You can accompany our purchaser while your vehicle is inspected. This includes a short test drive where the purchaser will move the vehicle several meters forwards and backwards.
  3. You will be offered a price for your car.
  4. If you do decide to sell your car, our purchaser will run through all the relevant paperwork with you and arrange for money to be paid into your chosen bank account. You have the option to upgrade your payment to receive the money faster (charge may apply). The paperwork to be completed includes:
    • Notifying the DVLA of the sale to allow you to receive a road tax refund
    • Updating the vehicle logbook (V5C)
    • Paying any outstanding finance using an in date settlement letter.
  5. After completing your appointment, you will be sent a unique link for tracking your payment. The Payment Tracker link provides information on progress, including an estimated payment date.

If you do decide to sell your car, please ensure that you have made arrangements for your return journey.

All appointments are free, with no obligation to sell.
