How long does it take to sell me car through Cash For Cars?

You can get a quote in seconds – simply add your vehicle registration, mileage and post code to enable us to give you our best quote for your vehicle. Then provide a couple of div and you will have your quote in seconds.

How quickly do you pay me?

You will be paid by “Faster Payment” secure bank transfer directly into your nominated bank account at the point of collection of your vehicle.

Do you really come and collect from my door, no other company offers this!

Yes we can collect from your home address or place of work, we can also collect from a garage or recovery yard should your vehicle be damaged/broken.

What do you use to give me a quote, it seems lower than others

We use the industry standard called CAP to value your vehicle plus our extensive experience in car buying so you get the very best price. This is accompanied by a few qualifying questions by our Vehicle Evaluation Agents and will result in the Cash For Cars final offer. Providing you have told us everything about your vehicle, this final offer is what we will pay on collection. No further reductions will be made (unlike other operators).

What if I need to change the time you come and collect my vehicle

If you give us notice the day before we are due to collect we can arrange with transport another suitable time for you.

Can I drop my car in anywhere?

Yes, if it is more convenient for you to drop your vehicle off rather than have it collected, you can arrange to deliver your vehicle to one of our 15 Cash For Cars partner locations across the UK, just speak to one of our team of advisors.

What if I change my mind?

Providing you give us notice before we arrange collection we can keep your quote for 7 days, if you have had a better offer then please give us chance to discuss it. We often find our customers end up selling to us at Cash For Cars because the initial ‘offer’ they receive from other car buying services turns out to be very different to the actual amount they would get at the moment of sale. We have no added fees, and of course, if you want, we will collect your car from you for FREE any where in the UK. No other supplier can do that!
