Common Car Selling Questions

Do I need to tell the DVLA?


When you sell or buy a vehicle, you need to make sure that you tell the DVLA so that they can update their systems.

You can do this using your V5C document/logbook or use their online portal. We've even got a DVLA guide for you too.

How much can I sell my car for?


How much you're able to get for your car will depend on a few things which are why it's always best to get a professional car valuation. The trouble is that many will lowball you in the hope that you sell to them and they get to make a profit, whereas we make sure that you're getting the best offers possible.

Why not just get a valuation to get started, it costs nothing!

What affects the price that I'll get for my car?


The price that you get for your car can be impacted by so many things.

The market - Using data from the current market gives you a good idea of what similar cars have sold for recently.

Age - Older cars are often worth less because they're seen to have more wear and tear and damage.

Mileage - Often, the higher the mileage the lower the value of the car because this indicates more wear and tear too.

Condition - The amount of damage to the car will also dictate its value. If your car, no matter the age is very damaged you're likely to see the value drop a lot.

Service history - Service history is a good way to tell how well the car has been looked after. If it's regularly serviced and well maintained, your value will often be higher.

Other ways to sell your car


Private sales

Private sale is one of the most well-known ways to sell or buy a car. The trouble is that this creates a whole host of hassle when trying to get the best price for your car. You yourself have to manage an advert of a selling platform and often you have to pay for that privilege too. It can take a while for someone to show interest in your car and even then it’s not a guaranteed sale by any means. This is a very time-consuming method and everyone haggles which means; the chances are that you’ll have to settle for less than you wanted to sell your car for.

Part-exchange with a dealership

This is a very common way to get rid of your old car and just replace it with a new one. The dealer will often offer to purchase your old car and take its value from the price of your new car or even use it as a deposit. This does make it a little easier for you in the moment and allows you to drive off in your new car right away. However, you still have to haggle and more often than not, the dealer will offer you a very low price for your old car instead.
