We know and appreciate that cars over time and continual usage will in some form or another receive damage in various ways. This may include a simple door, bumping into your car when you are in a car park, this was an accident and certainly unintentional by the other car owner but your car has now got a small bump. It is also very easy to curb your tires, which will leave scratch marks on the alloy wheels or miss an entrance only slightly and before you realise you now have a situation where there are several external scratches or dents that will devalue your car unless you pay an Panel Beater.
Likewise, if you have children or dogs you may find that there are a number of internal scruffs and scratches to the seats, dashboards and steering wheel all of which might be difficult to repair and certainly more difficult to provide an accurate valuation by simply completing he valuation for that is found on the home page. But there is good news, as we know that buying an older car will mean that there will likely be some sort of damage and that you can still sell your damaged car to us. When completing the home page valuation form, try to add as many details as possible to allow us to provide an accurate valuation for your car before we see your car.
Please remember that our free valuation that you receive is only a guide price that we will offer and is based on the following assumptions:
- Your car has more than 1 months MOT remaining.
- Your car isn’t an imported from abroad.
- Your vehicle has not been subject to an insurance write off or used for private hire, rental, driving tuition or as a police vehicle.
- Your car does not have a personalised registration number plate.
- Your car is not damaged in any way, including interior and mechanical.
- Your car is not a non-runner
- You are in possession of two sets of keys
- You have the option at the price presentation page to notify us any of the above assumptions being different on your Vehicle.
This is why we will only buy a car if we physically see the car and are able to examine it with our on-site inspection. We believe that having an on-site inspection is the fairest valuation method for both parties as this allows us and yourself to agree on any dents and scratches that might be present and a rough guide to the cost of repairing them will be taken into account.
Remember the best way to make sure that your car has the highest resale value is to make sure it has no visible internal or external damage when you come to our branches for an on-site inspection.
