Common Questions

How Do I Receive The Money?

All our payments are made via bank transfer or cash, which are processed immediately. We have found that most bank transfers are instantaneous; however, this may vary depending on your bank.

How Much is My Car Worth?

We can only offer a precise price by knowing the specifics of the vehicle. Even if two cars share the same mileage, one might have bodywork or engine damage. Nonetheless, we employ a time-tested method to assess your car. After gathering all the required details, we arrange a visit and offer a definitive price.

Do You Buy All Cars?

We specialise in Audis and Volkswagens, but that doesn’t imply we exclude other cars. If you’re uncertain about whether we’ll buy your car, please fill out our contact form and our team will be in touch.

How Long Does It Take To Sell My Car?

We strive to buy your car as quickly as possible. In certain instances, we can organise a visit on the same day. If not, it will be within the next few days. You can also obtain a quote over the phone by calling us directly.

What If I Don’t Have The Logbook?

Upon our arrival, the one item we need is your logbook. If it’s missing, we suggest ordering a replacement. This can be done by filling out a V62 form, available here. After submitting your V62, expect your new logbook within 10 days. Remember, there is a £25 charge to apply for a new V62 form.

Do You Take Cars For Scrap?

No, we only buy used cars in Basildon that are operational. If you need to scrap your car, we can recommend someone else.
