Common Questions

How Do I Receive The Money?

We offer payments through bank transfer or cash, which are processed immediately. While most bank transfers are instant these days, the speed may vary depending on your bank.

How Much is My Car Worth?

We’re unable to offer a precise quote without a phone conversation. Although two cars might share similar mileage, variations such as body or engine damage can affect their value. Nonetheless, we have a system for assessing your car. After gathering all the required details, we can arrange a visit to finalize the pricing.

Do You Buy All Cars?

We specialise in Audis and Volkswagens, but we are also interested in other makes of cars. If you’re uncertain about whether we would buy your vehicle, please don’t hesitate to fill the contact form and we’ll contact you to discuss your vehicle’s condition.

How Long Does It Take To Sell My Car?

Our goal is to buy your car as quickly as we can. In certain instances, we can even schedule a visit on the same day. If not, we’ll aim for the next few days. You can always receive an immediate quote by filling out our contact form.

What If I Don’t Have The Logbook?

Upon our arrival, we’ll need your logbook. If it’s misplaced, we advise getting a replacement by filling out a V62 form. After submitting your V62, expect your new logbook within 10 days. Please note there is a £25 charge for applying for a new V62 form.

Do You Take Cars For Scrap?

No, we solely buy used cars that are operational. If you’re looking to scrap your car, we can recommend someone else who can assist.
