How To Sell Car Privately

What do I need to sell my car today?

All you need today is your reg number, some photos and a few car details. When we come to collect, there are a couple of other bits we will need to complete the sale:

  • Your V5 logbook/registration certificate. This needs to be registered in the name of the current keeper.
  • Any service history/service books
  • Photo ID. E.g., drivers licence, passport.
  • A proof of address. E.g., a recent utility bill.
  • Car keys (including any spares).

We will also need the date of your car’s last MOT. If the current MOT runs out in under three months, we won’t be able to buy it.

Get The Best Price

Getting the best price and an accurate valuation

Aiming for the highest offer for your car? Let’s not pretend – who isn’t? Here’s a few things you can do to get a head start:

  • Accuracy is everything – The details you share lay the foundation. If there’s a mismatch between your description and the real deal when we arrive, we may have to rethink the initial valuation. So, be upfront about any imperfections, and make sure your mileage count is off by no more than 500 miles.
  • Keep a record – Whether it’s a stamped log book, paper receipts or a digital trail, being able to prove your car’s service history is a golden ticket.
  • A quick clean – Make sure your vehicle is free of any mud or dirt, just so we can complete the inspection properly.

We don’t like to faff around and prefer to keep things streamlined for you. So, for a hassle-free experience, keep your car’s description as accurate as you can. Should there be surprises, we might need to tweak or reconsider our offer. But, on the sunny side you’ll have a full 7 days to mull over any new offer we give.

Sell my car FAQs

How can I sell my car fast?

Head to the top of this page and enter your registration number! Provide us with a few more details (which can take as little as 10 minutes) and we’ll get back to you super fast with a generous valuation that’s guaranteed for 7 days.

1. Enter your registration number in the box at the top of this page
2. Provide us with a few photos

We’ll take care of the rest. Based on this information you’ll get a valuation from us that’s valid for 7 days, so you’ve got plenty of chances to mull the offer over. Once you’ve seen how good our valuations are, though, you won’t be turning it down!

Who will buy my car?

We will – it’s in our name, after all! As long as your vehicle has under 70,000 miles on the clock and is newer than 2015, we’ll purchase vehicles of all makes, models, shapes, sizes, and physical condition. Curious as to how much your car might be worth? Enter your reg details for a no-obligation quote today.

How much can I sell my car for?

This will depend on a number of factors such as:

  • The make and model of your car
  • Its age
  • The amount of mileage it’s done
  • If it has any service history
  • Current supply and demand levels
  • The condition of the bodywork and interior

What we do promise, however, is that the valuation we give is based on current market appraisals and that it will be extremely competitive.

Where is the safest place to sell a car?

The traditional way of selling a second-hand car through online classifieds or newspaper ads is full of potential pitfalls; the buyer tries to intimidate you to chip you down on price, they know where you live, and they can continue to harass you after the purchase has gone through. Obviously, none of this is ideal.

With BigWantsYourCar.com, we want to give you confidence in our method, so you’ll only see us twice; once when we come out to appraise your vehicle and the second when we collect your car at a time convenient to you – everything else is done via the secure website. 100% peace of mind, every time.

At what point should you sell a car?

That’s entirely your choice. People decide to sell their cars for all kinds of reasons, but whenever you decide to sell your car through us you’ll get a valuation that’s guaranteed for 7 days, so you’ll have plenty of time to consider it. Even if your car has outstanding finance, you’ll just need to show us proof of the outstanding figure so that we can settle up with the provider directly. It couldn’t be easier!
