Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work if my vehicle is on a PCP contract?
Not a problem. This will be factored into the buyer’s valuation and they will clear any outstanding finance and pay you the difference. If the finance agreement is in negative equity then you will have to pay the buyer the difference; however, you may have rights that help you with this. I’m happy to advise you on the best option.
What if my used car is older than 10 years old?
It’s worth getting in touch anyway. If you have a classic car or something a bit special, I’m happy to come take a look and see if I can find a buyer. Failing that, for a flat fee of £99 I can create a professional ad for Autotrader (or similar) to help you sell your pre-owned vehicle quickly and for the best price possible.
What does your appraisal / condition report cover?
I could tell you but then I’d have to kill you. Rest assured, it’s one of the most thorough and detailed used car appraisals out there. It also includes high-quality photographs to do justice to your pride and joy, ensuring you get the best price for your previously owned vehicle.
