What information do I need to get a car valuation?

To make the process even simpler for you, we ask that you provide a few mandatory details so that we can make your buying experience even easier. All we ask that you provide is:

  • Your vehicle's registration
  • The current mileage of your car
  • Basic contact information

When it comes to having the car inspected by one of our advisors, we will need you to provide some further information and documentation. On assessment you will need:

  • Your Driving Licence
  • A bank statement – addressed to your name and current home address dated within 3 months
  • Vehicle Registration V5 Document
  • The service history records (if applicable)
  • Valid finance settlement letter - showing final settlement figure and finance company bank details (if applicable)
  • All keys - including spares
  • Any accessories related to the use of the vehicle i.e. user manuals, locking wheel nut key, memory cards etc
Can I still sell my car if it still has a remaining finance balance?

No problem, if you still have a remaining finance deal, we can still buy your car from you. We will arrange a settlement for your current agreement and our helpful advisors will guide you through the process. There are a few options available to you, but essentially the settlement amount will be deducted from the sum we pay for your car.

If you are interested, there are also several ways that we can help you finance your next car, with a number of credit options we can find a finance option that best suits you. This can all be discussed with us on the day of selling if you so choose.
