The Selling Process...

How It Works

We understand that selling your car in Essex can be a stressful experience. Our team makes the process as simple as possible. Here are the steps we take to ensure a smooth experience throughout your selling process.
Call Us Directly
It all starts by calling our team (or using the contact forum). We are available 8AM - 7PM Monday to Saturday to discuss all your car selling needs.
Get A Quote On The Phone
On the phone we will ask you some questions. Some of these include the make, model, reg, and current mileage. We may also ask if the car is damaged in any way, including paintwork or mechanical problems.
Book A Home Visit
During our home visit we will inspect your car to check the overall condition. This is to ensure that there is no unseen damage that you may have missed.
Recieve Your Money
If you’re happy to go ahead with the agreed price, we will then take care of all the necessary paperwork (the logbook). You can then receive your money instantly before the car leaves the driveway.

Common Questions

How Do I Receive The Money?

All our payments are by bank transfer or cash, which is sent immediately. We find that most bank transfers are instant nowadays; however, this will depend on which bank you are with.

How Much is My Car Worth?

We cannot provide an accurate price without speaking to you on the phone. Even though 2 cars may have the same mileage, one may have damage to the bodywork or engine. However, we have a process for evaluating your car. Once we have all the necessary information, we can schedule a visit and provide a final price.

Do You Buy All Cars?

Our focus is on Audis and Volkswagens, However, that doesn’t mean we don’t buy other cars. If you’re unsure whether we will purchase your car, please give us a call and speak to one of our team.

How Long Does It Take To Sell My Car Essex?

We aim to purchase your car as fast as possible. In some cases, we can arrange a visit the same day. Otherwise, it will be the following few days. You can still get a quote over the phone by calling us directly.

What If I Don’t Have The Logbook?

The one thing we do require upon arrival is your logbook. If you cannot find it beforehand, we recommend ordering a new one. You can do this by completing a V62 form, which can be found here. Once you have sent off your V62, your new logbook will be sent within 10 days. Please keep in mind there will be a £25 fee when applying for a new V62 form.

Do You Take Cars For Scrap?

No. We only purchase used cars that are in working order. If you want to scrap your car, we may be able to refer you to somebody else.
