The Car Buying Service You Can Really Trust

Established in 2007, SellCar has been a core part of the online car purchasing sector since the sector started. We are not a new kid on the block; we have not needed to rebrand (normally due to poor customer reputation). We have experienced year on year growth every year since we started trading, organically – as a result of extremely hard work and an uncompromising approach to our customers.  Transparency is at the heart of everything we do, meaning that there really is no “catch” when selling your car to us.
People generally use this method to sell their car for one of two reasons: either they require quick cash for their car or they do not want the hassle of selling privately. Whilst we obviously receive enquiries from customers who require quick cash for their car, this is not really our target market. As we offer a free of charge collection service and also an instant cleared funds payment method, our process tends to lend itself to the busy professional who just doesn’t have the time or inclination to sell their car privately and whose work lives are too busy to take time off work to go to one of our competitors.  We are, in effect, a concierge service to this type of customer.
Please take time to read our many customer reviews – they speak far more for us than we can.

Although I would obviously have liked more money for my Laguna I believe the price you offered to have been fair and probably the best I could have got at this time. Perhaps more importantly it was a pleasure to deal with you as everybody was friendly and courteous; the collection of the car went smoothly and the money was in my account in less than 10 minutes! I shall be happy to recommend you to anybody. Well done!

Very clear and professional visit. The person seemed knowledgable and asked a number of relevant questions. Would use this service again.

I have just sold my car to and from start to finish I have received a very efficient and professional. Zyllah in admin is so pleasant to deal with and respond very quickly to emails, even out of hours, making the process seamless. Today I was greeted by Richard who was the representative and arrived as arranged at 7.45am. Richard is an extremely professional and honest person and as long as you are transparent with them in terms of the condition of the car then you will have no issues. The few negative reviews you will read are from people that have not declared damage or defects and therefore get offered less than originally quoted. Overall I am very pleased and will recommend the company to anyone looking to sell their car. All in all the process took 2hrs and the funds were in my account immediately with no fees on top to pay. Thanks again to Mark, Zyllah, Clare and Richard, all are a credit to
