Terms and Conditions


Prices Quoted by Us

Whenever we quote a price, that price is in Pounds Sterling and is inclusive of United Kingdom-rated
VAT where applicable. You are responsible for the disclosure and payment of any duties or other taxes
which apply.
Whilst we try to ensure that all prices provided are accurate, mistakes can sometimes occur. If we
discover an error in the price we will contact you as soon as possible and give you the option of either
reconfirming your Offer at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat
the contract as being cancelled.
All prices quoted are subject to current market data. In the event that the market data used when making
an offer becomes out-dated, we reserve the right to amend the valuation accordingly.
All prices quoted in the valuation are given in good faith and are derived from a combination of factors including the information supplied by the Seller. The provision of inaccurate, false or misleading data by the Seller will result in an inaccurate valuation which cannot be relied upon by the Seller.
Any significant increase in mileage by the Seller from the date the valuation is provided to the date of collection / delivery of the vehicle will result in the valuation provided being incorrect. A revised valuation may therefore be required. A significant increase is defined as 1000 miles.
We will pay for the vehicle by sending the money to your nominated bank account by instant bank transfer at time of collection or delivery. Cash will only be considered where the purchase value is under £1000 and 24 hours notice is provided of the request.
The Seller expressly warrants that all the information supplied during the on-line and telephone valuation process is accurate and true.
The Seller warrants that the vehicle is not subject to undisclosed finance.
The Seller warrants that the vehicle has not been an insurance write-off or involved in any other serious accident that required substantial remedial repairs.
The Seller warrants the mileage reading on the vehicle is true and accurate and that the odometer has not been tampered with.
The Seller warrants that there are no undisclosed physical defects with the vehicle that a prudent purchaser would want to be informed about (including cut and shuts, mechanically unsound or inoperable, unroadworthy and/or chassis damage).
The Seller warrants that there are no undisclosed "title defects” with the vehicle that a prudent purchaser would want to be informed about.
The Seller warrants that they are the legal owner of the vehicle, have the right to transfer the full unencumbered legal title and full ownership of the vehicle to the Company.
Complaints and Liability
If you have any queries or complaints please email sales@CARtraderltd.com
We, our directors, employees and other agents shall not be liable for damages of any kind including without limitation, direct, indirect, special or consequential damages, loss of income or profits, loss of or corruption of data, loss of or damage to property or claims of third parties, arising out of or in connection with our purchase of the Car or our late or non-collection of the Car. In any event subject to the paragraph below our total liability to you will never exceed the price.
We do not limit or exclude our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or any rights you may have as a consumer to the extent that such liability and rights may not be limited or excluded under applicable law
Vehicles subject to Finance
It is the responsibility of the Seller to disclose to Car Trader ES Ltd any existing finance associated with the vehicle.
Car Trader ES Ltd may agree to settle the existing finance in lieu of payment (or part payment) of the vehicle to the Seller at its absolute discretion. Car Trader ES Ltd has no duty to pay such finance and will only undertake to settle such finance at its absolute discretion.
If the finance settlement figure is lower than the purchase offer, we will pay to the seller the difference between the two figures at point of collection or delivery. The finance will be cleared simultaneously and followed up by us until we have received confirmation that there is no further financial interest in the vehicle.
If the agreed purchase price of the vehicle is lower than the settlement figure required to fully settle any related finance, the Seller must pay Car Trader ES Ltd the difference between the settlement figure and the agreed purchase sum, by cleared funds, in advance of Car Trader ES Ltd settling the outstanding balance on the finance. Failure by the Seller to pay such a sum at point of collection will automatically render the contract between the parties terminated.
The Seller remains liable to the finance company in respect to the related finance at all times until the credit agreement has been legally terminated. Car Trader ES Ltd does not accept any liability with respect to the related finance at any time or for any reason.
