Common Questions

How Do I Receive The Money?

We make all payments either through bank transfer or in cash. Many bank transfers are completed within minutes, although the speed may vary depending on your bank.

How Much is My Car Worth?

We need to learn more about your vehicle to make an offer. Even two cars with identical mileage can differ if one has body or engine damage. We have a thorough process for assessing your car. After gathering all the essential details, we can arrange a visit and give you a final price.

Do You Buy All Cars?

While we specialise in Audis and Volkswagens, we’re certainly interested in other makes as well. If you’re wondering whether we’ll buy your car, simply contact us via our contact form, and one of our friendly team members will get in touch.

How Long Does It Take To Sell My Car?

Our goal is to buy your car as quickly as possible. Sometimes, we can even manage to visit on the same day. If not, we’ll aim for the next few days. You can also obtain a quote directly online by filling out the contact form.

What If I Don’t Have The Logbook?

When we arrive, we’ll need to see your logbook. If it’s not available, you might need to apply for a new one by filling out a V62 form. After you submit your V62, expect to receive the new logbook within 10 days. Please note, there is a £25 charge for processing a new V62 form.

Do You Take Cars For Scrap?

No, we only buy used cars that are fully operational. If you’re looking to scrap your car, we can potentially point you towards someone who can help with that.

Forget the long waits and disappointment from private buyers. When you contact Car Buyers Essex, you can get a quote right from your sofa!
