Selling your car can be time consuming and stressful if you choose to sell privately. If you have never sold a car before, this could be particularly daunting. For starters, calculating an accurate car valuation can be tricky without the knowledge and experience of a seasoned car trader. If you underestimate the value of your car, you could end up losing money. And if you overestimate the value of your car, you could end up in an awkward situation and needing to haggle with potential buyers. No one wants to end up struggling to sell their car!For those of you that have sold their car via part-exchange and want to process the transaction quickly, this is where our service shines! We offer all the speed and convenience of a part-exchange, just with none of the downsides.
With webuyanycar.com, you can receive a car valuation in under 60 seconds, and by ensuring the details you enter about the history and condition of your vehicle are comprehensive, you can be sure your valuation is accurate. This is just one of many benefits of selling your car to webuyanycar.com. Let’s examine the traditional methods of selling a car, and see how they compare!
Selling your car privately may seem like a quick and simple solution to offloading your vehicle to a local buyer. However, as most sellers quickly find out, the process can be long, complicated and frustrating.
Firstly, there are often costs involved if you wish to advertise the car for sale, be it in local newspapers or with online car markets/exchanges. Not only does this take a bite out of the money you’d receive from the sale, but there’s also no guarantee of sale, potentially leaving you out of pocket and no closer to selling your car.
Secondly, selling a car privately opens you up to anyone who’s looking to buy, many of whom will be looking to haggle on price. You also will need to make yourself available at the buyer's convenience, when they’re available to view the car. This can end up cutting into your valuable private time, resulting in late-night phone calls and knocks at the door. If you find yourself thinking: “I want to sell my car, but don’t want the hassle of a private sale”, then webuyanycar.com are the answer you’re looking for!
We have a strict ‘no haggle’ policy; we ensure our prices are fair and accurate based on the value, condition and history of your vehicle. This takes away the worry about losing value, as can often happen with a traditional part-exchange. Most of webuyanycar.com branch managers come from car servicing backgrounds, and not car sales; we believe this is crucial in offering our customers a fair price based on the condition of the car, ensuring no ‘salesy’ methods are used during the purchase.
Part-exchanging a car can understandably look like a great way to offload your previous vehicle during the process of purchasing a new one, but much like the private sale, there are downsides to selling your car via part-exchange.
Firstly, it’s common for car dealers to offer you a less-than-fair price for your old car during the part exchange process. The result is that the quote value is often less than you would receive when selling the car via other means. This is particularly true if you’re selling a car from a different manufacturer to a branded dealership, for example, part-exchanging a MINI at a Ford showroom. So finding your ideal next car and part-exchanging your last model could result in you losing a significant value in the exchange.
Secondly, part exchanging an old car instead of putting down a cash deposit won’t put you in as strong a position to negotiate a better price on the new car. Cash buyers often receive better offers or rates of interest on financed car purchases. This means that selling your old car and using the cash from that to put a down payment on your next car could allow you to negotiate a better price, as well as avoiding a loss of value on your previous vehicle!
This is another common-sense reason to sell your car to webuyanycar.com: not only can you sell you use the cash you receive to score a great deal on your next car, but by having the option to sell your car quickly and receive the cash the same day, you can head straight to the dealership ready to buy your next car!

To ensue you can sell your car to webuyanycar.com, you’ll need to get certain documents in order and bring them along to your appointment.
These documents allow us to cross-reference the paperwork with the information you entered during your online car valuation, and confirm how much your car is worth. Some of the documents are also essential for when the car then goes on to resale in future, ensuring that the eventual new owner will have all the information they need on the car’s past.
Here’s a simple checklist of items you should bring to your appointment when selling your car:
And here’s a quick video about to expect at your webuyanycar.com appointment
You may not know that the value of a car can fluctuate throughout the year. While you’re generally better off selling as soon as possible to avoid car value depreciation based on age and usage, you may be able to get a better price for your car if you take advantage of seasonal price increases.
For example, sports cars and convertibles are often higher in demand on the approach to, and throughout Summer; conversely, all-weather vehicles such as 4x4s are more popular during winter months, and often fetch a better price at resale.
Holding out to make a sale in these cases could be beneficial but it’s also important to recognise that waiting too long could reduce the overall value of your car even further. Firstly, if you continue to use the vehicle excessively during the extra time you wait to sell, running up the mileage or increasing ‘wear and tear’ on the car, it will likely be worth less to the next owner.
Secondly, the annual ‘plate changes’ can also affect the value of a car, as the vehicle becomes a year older following the release of the updated plates. Be sure to look up when your car’s registration plates will become a year older, and opt to sell before then if possible so you can sell your car at its current age.
