We understand that the way people want to sell their cars has changed. This is why we've teamed up with the guys at Motorway to offer you a safer, more convenient and hassle-free way of selling your car from home, completely online.

How it works


So, how does it work?

Together with Motorway we'll get you a competitive price from a verified dealer.

More and more people are selling their cars for cash which is why there are plenty of online car buying companies that will gladly take your car off of your hands. However, this means that they're dictating what your car is actually worth.

We believe this is wrong and that your car is worth what people are prepared to pay for it. Therefore, it's the used car market that should determine its true value.

All you have to do is simply enter your registration, add a few photos and tell us about the condition of your car. It's that simple!

You're under absolutely no obligation. It's totally up to you whether you accept an offer or just walk away. If you are happy with the offer then the dealer will contact you to arrange payment and collection.

Frequently asked questions

It's only natural to have a few questions. This is why we've answered the more common ones below.

We can't tell you how much your car is worth until you provide us with some details about your car. Just enter your registration along with some photos and details about the condition of your car. We'll then show your car to our entire network of trusted car dealers. Any dealers that are interested in buying your car will then offer you their best price. What this does is place you firmly in control. You can either accept the best offer available or simply walk away with no obligation.

No. You are under absolutely no obligation to accept any offer. If you feel that the highest offer made is not acceptable then you can simply walk away, no questions asked.

As soon as you agree to sell your car to a buyer you will arrange a date for collection. No buyers will be able to pay you in physical cash. Instead you will be paid via a secure bank transfer. The majority of buyers offer same day payment and it's only when the funds are in your account that your car leaves your drive. This gives you complete peace of mind.

Yes. When you agree to sell to a buyer you will arrange a collection date. The buyer will come and collect your car and is usually free of charge, from wherever you want. So, it could be from home, from work or even at a family member's house. The buyer will either come in person or have it collected via a vehicle collection company. Remember, your car will not leave your drive until the total amount of funds have been deposited into your bank account.

No. There are absolutely no fees or charges associated with this service.

All we require is:

1. The Number Plate (VRM)
2. Current Mileage (Odometer Reading)
3. Service History - full or part, main-dealer or private garage.
4. Answer some questions about the condition of the car.
5. Some photos of your car or use your smartphone's camera.
6. Your phone number and email so potential buyers can get in touch.

To use the service you will need to tell us your name, telephone number, email address and postcode. Your details will be held and used in accordance with GDPR. Motorway require these details to get in touch with you about your sale, including the highest price they've found from their network of dealers. Once you have accepted an offer from a dealer, Motorway will pass your details on to them. They can then get in touch with you to arrange collection and payment. Always remember, you are under no obligation to sell your car at any point.

Together with Motorway it's our aim to get as much money for your car as possible. We think it's wrong to accept an offer from a single car buying company. By showcasing your car to thousands of potential buyers and knowing the best offers you're sure to get the best possible price. Buying and selling cars is a question of deals and we think that there should always be a fair deal between buyers and sellers.

All potential buyers on the Motorway network must sign up to a code of conduct. All buyers are continually vetted to ensure that they give the same high levels of service that we all expect. If they fall short of this level of service then they are removed from the trusted network. If, at any time, you feel that you have been treated unfairly by a buyer then you can contact Motorway on 0203 988 2266 or email them at sell@motorway.co.uk. They promise to immediately take all necessary action to rectify your situation.
