VALUATION TOOL AND CAR PURCHASE

Any valuation given to you by us is based on the information you tell us about your vehicle and on the following general assumptions we make about your vehicle:

  • it has over 6 months MOT;
  • it is not an import, i.e. it is a right-hand drive vehicle with UK registration plates;
  • it has not ever been subject to an insurance write off or used for private hire, rental, driving tuition or as a police vehicle;
  • 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;
  • it has no damage, including interior and mechanical;
  • it has an engine which starts and it can idle on its own, i.e. it is not a "non-runner";
  • you have two sets of keys for the car.

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 vehicle.

A valuation is not an offer by us to purchase the vehicle. It is simply a tool to enable you to estimate the value of your vehicle and the price which we may be willing to pay for it.
We always carry out a physical inspection of the vehicle before we agree to buy it. After you have received your valuation, you may book an appointment for an inspection.

If, on inspection of the vehicle, we consider that the value of the vehicle 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 vehicle, which was not apparent to us when we gave you the valuation, the price that we may be willing to pay for it following an inspection is likely to differ from the initial valuation. We are not obliged to purchase any vehicle which we have given you a valuation for. 

Purchase Contract
A binding agreement to purchase the vehicle will only be made between us once you have signed our standard written purchase contract. 

Hand-over Requirements
At the time of making the Contract, we will expect you to provide us with:

  • all copies of the Car's keys you have;
  • the vehicles registration document (together with appropriate proof of purchase if requested by us);
  • the vehicle's service history (if any);
  • the vehicle 's MOT certificate (if any);
  • the vehicle '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 vehicle once the contract has been concluded. We will not be responsible for any personal items lost once the vehicle 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 vehicle with immediate effect.

Our guarantee:
We guarantee we are willing to buy every vehicle we value. So that we don’t waste your time, if there is a change in the market value of your vehicle resulting in a reduced valuation, then we endeavour to let you know what the new valuation is at least 24 hours before your appointment, so that you have the opportunity to cancel, if you choose to do so.
