The Carwow website was launched with the mission of creating the ultimate online car buying and selling experience. It has helped over 12 million users compare offers from trusted dealers for their used cars. Carwow can provide you with the best valuations for your car, meaning you can skip the hassle of selling privately and get paid the same day.

It has become one of the most influential names, and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon.

How Carwow do it

All you need to do is head over to their website, where you’ll be able to enter your vehicle registration, along with some basic details about your car. After that, you’ll also be asked to enter your email address, as well as your name, number, and postcode so that you can receive offers, news, and advice from Carwow. This also means that they will be able to pass your personal information over to their dealers so that they can provide you with an offer for your car.

Once you’ve entered all of the above, you’ll be able to retrieve your list of quotes from the wide range of dealers that they work with, who are ready and waiting to provide you with an offer. When you find an offer that you’re happy with and you accept it, your chosen dealer will simply make an appointment with you so that they can come and inspect and collect the car from you.

It’s only after this has been completed that you will receive the payment directly for your car. There will be no haggling and no need to worry about any fees for you to pay either. The price you’re offered is the price you get if you’re happy with it. There’s no need to worry about any delayed payments or a middle man getting in the way either.

How are we different

Here at Jamjar, we have adopted a slightly different process for selling your car. We were tired of seeing how hard it was for people to find the right deal for their vehicle. So we created the solution: a fully transparent comparison service that no longer requires your personal information.

That means if you simply want a value for your vehicle, that is what you’ll get. We don’t need it and we won’t ask for it until you want to offer it to us until you’re ready to take the process further and sell your car. It’s that simple.

Carwow History

Founded in 2011, Carwow was founded by James Hind. The company originally launched as a car research site, Carbuzz. It offered expert and user reviews along with much more as it helped those who were looking to purchase a new car until 2013 when it re-launched as Carwow, a car-buying platform. Having grown to a network that now enables you to buy the right car and sell your car for the right price to a dealer, Carwow shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Carwow has excelled with its number of YouTube channels, with most of them being presented by Mat Watson, the channels feature plenty of car reviews, as well as drag race videos.

How we work

While at the heart of what we do here at Jamar is similar to that at Carwow, we thrive off being able to make the car selling process even easier for you. We focus purely on you being able to sell your car, for the best price, as quickly and safely as possible.

You’ll be able to retrieve an instant valuation for your vehicle and compare the best online car buying offers from around the UK, without having to enter a single piece of your private information. It doesn’t get much better than that. This means you’re in control from the get-go and that you can decide who you want to sell your car to, for how much, and also when you want to give us your personal information.

Very helpful & friendly advice. The purchase price was very competitive & much more generous than all the other websites that had quoted. Very convenient collection service too.
