We have no control over and take no responsibility for the content of those sites or resources and are not responsible for any services or products accessed via any such sites.



We are the owner or the licensee of all intellectual property rights in our Website, Valuation Widget, Services and all material published on it. Those works are protected inter alia by copyright laws and treaties. All such rights are reserved.

You may print off one copy, and may download extracts, of any page(s) from our Website or Valuation Widget for your own personal use.

You must not modify the paper or digital copies of any materials you have printed off or downloaded in any way, and you must not use any illustrations, photographs, video or audio sequences or any graphics separately from any accompanying text.



Any valuation generated by the Valuation Widget (an “Online Valuation”) is based on the information you tell us about your car (the “Car”) and on the following general assumptions we make about your Car (the “Assumptions”):

  • You have the V5 document;
  • The vehicle has at least 2 sets of keys;
  • The vehicle is in good condition, i.e. it has no damage, including interior and mechanical;
  • The vehicle has an excellent service (franchise) history;
  • The vehicle is not displaying any warning lights;
  • it has not been used for private hire, rental, driving tuition or as a police vehicle
  • it is not an import, i.e. it is a right-hand drive vehicle with UK registration plates;
  • there are no major mechanical faults with the car;
  • it does not have a personalised registration plate, or, if the vehicle has a personalised registration plate it will remain with the Car and no value is assigned to it; and
  • it has an engine which starts and it can idle on its own, i.e. it is not a “non-runner”;

You have the option at the Online Valuation presentation page to amend any of the Assumptions and provide us with some further detail about your Car for us to adjust the valuation.


An Online Valuation from the Website or Valuation Widget is not an offer to purchase the Car. It is simply a valuation to enable you to estimate the value of your car and the price which we may be willing to pay for it.


We will always carry out a physical or AI inspection of the Car before we agree to buy it. After you have received an Online Valuation, you may book an appointment for an inspection at one of our branches or via a phone call (an “Appointment”).


If, on inspection of the Car at the Appointment, we consider that the value of the Car is affected by any aspect of its history or condition, including any unusual feature or customisation or anything which affects or limits the Assumptions we made about the Car, which was not apparent to us when we gave the Online Valuation, the price that we may be willing to pay for it following an inspection (the “Price”) is likely to differ from the Online Valuation.


We are not obliged to purchase any Car brought to an Appointment (in particular we reserve the right to turn you away from an Appointment if you are selling the Car for commercial purposes, e.g. in the course of a motor trade business) and neither are you obliged to sell any car brought to an Appointment.


Price Guarantee

Subject to our inspection of the Car (as explained further above) and any significant change in the market value if your car, the Online Valuation is guaranteed for 7 days from the date and time which you receive your valuation on the Website.


If there is a change in the market value of your car resulting in a reduced valuation, we will use reasonable endeavours to contact you before your Appointment to let you know the new valuation and so that you have an opportunity to cancel your Appointment if you wish to do so.


Hand-over Requirements

At the time of making the Purchase Contract, we will expect you to provide us with:

  • all copies of the Car’s keys you have;
  • the Car’s registration V5 document (together with appropriate proof of purchase if requested by us);
  • the Car’s service history (if any);
  • the Car’s MOT certificate (if any);
  • the Car’s user manuals (if any); and
  • any accessories there may be such as a locking wheel nut, radio fascia or remote controls.

We will also expect you to remove any personal possessions from the Car once the Purchase Contract has been concluded. We will not be responsible for any personal items lost once the Car is in our possession.


In the event that you fail to comply with these hand-over requirements, you agree that we have the right to withdraw any offer to buy the Car with immediate effect, to rescind or terminate any Purchase Contract with immediate effect, and/or to indicate a revised Price at which we will be prepared to purchase the Car. If we elect to rescind the Purchase Contract, we will return the Car to you, and you will refund the Price to us.


Transaction Fees

There are no transaction fees applicable on our purchase of a Car


Payment Options

Eligible customers selling their vehicle can choose to have the payment made by a Same Day Faster Payment to your account, at the point you agree to sell your vehicle to us.
