How can I sell my used car?

Wondering what to do when selling a car…? We'll tell you!

  • The first step is to prepare all the necessary documents: MOT, V5C and service bills are the main ones. The more detailed your service book, the better it shows that the car has been looked after well.
  • Next up, find out how much your vehicle is worth. With our online services, it is easy to receive an exact assessment of your car's market value. You'll receive three different prices: one for a private sale, a car dealership price and a third scrap-parts cash price. These will be based on your car's make, age, mileage and more. All you'll need is your registration number to obtain a free valuation.
  • Ready it for sale. Start by removing all personal touches from the car, including your information from the onboard computer. Find all the necessary keys and accessories and fully clean out the interior.
  • Consider removing any small dents or scratches if possible. Selling your vehicle online involves making it appealing to potential buyers. Making the exterior look better will attract more buyers immediately.
  • Tackle a market. When searching "how to sell my car" online, you will find plenty of avenues to choose from. Figure out which work best for you. Most often, this means deciding between posting classified ads for private sales, contacting auto traders or finding dedicated avenues where you can sell it for parts. There is no single best approach. It depends on your car's current state, how fast you want the trade to happen, model and more.
  • Making a sale online has never been easier, and it creates a digital trail for further reference. Remember to notify the DVLA of completing the car transfer, as it could help you get a refund for vehicle tax.
