Should I scrap my car?

There are so many services out there that value to your car way too high and when it comes to them buying it from you, they cut the price down until they’re basically stealing it form you. We’ll make sure that we give you a fair, accurate valuation for your car, regardless of whether you’re selling it, scrapping or you’re holding on to it for a bit longer.

What other services ask for

One of the biggest problems that you’ll find that most of these car valuation services will let you enter all of your car’s details and then, at the last second, make you enter your name, phone number, email address and your mother’s maiden name just to get your valuation. This is only made worse by the fact that you’ll then get a month’s worth of emails over a 4-day period asking you if you’re still selling your car or if you’d like to use another one of their services… Is there anything worse? There is but this is still annoying.

We’ve taken a new approach to this and made it even easier to get an instant car valuation without having to enter any of your personal information.

So what information does Jamjar need?

All we need is your REG number, the mileage, a collection postcode, the MOT date and how much service history you have. This means that we won’t need to take any of your personal information. We won’t ask for your name, email or your phone number. We won’t follow up with endless threads of emails, you can just get your valuation and leave if you wanted to.

Why don’t you need any information?

We don’t take your personal information because it’s the car that we’re valuing, not you! If you are trying to sell your car, you can do it through is too. All we need then is a few pieces of your information so that we can put you in touch with our network of trusted dealers and buyer that will reach out to you to organise the next steps.
