Car Buying Process
The easiest way to sell your car in the UK!
- Using the CARtrader 3 minute online form, send us some initial details about your car. Don't forget to put your contact details in as well, otherwise we won't be able to make you an offer or arrange collection.
- You will then receive an e-mail confirmation with a unique reference number with our contact details on should you wish to get in touch straight away
- Alternatively one of the CARtrader researchers will call you as soon as possible to gather as much information on your vehicle, as we believe your vehicle is unique and therefore has a unique price.
- This phone call takes approximately 5-10 minutes, during which time we will make an offer on your car.
- Once the deal is agreed we will send you a copy of the vehicle appraisal as we have discussed.
- We will then arrange collection around your busy schedule.
- When a member of our team arrives we will carry out an on site appraisal and match this to the one provided over the phone. This should take around 30 minutes.
- If everything matches up we will then make payment via instant bank transfer. If there are any differences in the appraisals we will discuss this with you at the same time to ensure a fair price can be agreed. This usually takes no more than 10 minutes
- The CARtrader driver will then wait with you while you confirm that cleared funds have been received.
The whole process of selling your car to CARtrader is done in approximately 45 minutes. When we said selling your car to CARtrader was the easiest in the UK, did you think we could do it in less time than it takes you to advertise your car on Auto Trader?
