Ever wondered how we buy cars? Watch our short video to see how online vehicle buying works and to find out how we go about transferring cash for cars we buy.
You may be wondering who pays the most cash for cars these days, and you’d be right to question it. With more and more methods to sell your car, particularly online, it’s hard to know where to go and who will give you the most money.
Here at Trusted Car Buyers, we pay cash for cars from one to ten-years old and with up to 80,000 miles on the clock. That’s a promise.
Provided your vehicle is in good condition, following an inspection at your nearest branch, we will buy any car regardless of make and model. So whether you own an Audi, BMW, Mercedes or Vauxhall, we will work to get you the best possible price online.
If your car is over ten-years-old, we will judge the vehicle on its condition, service history and MOT checks. We’d expect some minor scuffs and scratches on a car of this age, so don’t worry too much if it isn’t spotless.
Tyres are particularly important on a vehicle of ten-years or more, so we might check those a little more thoroughly, should they not have been changed for quite some time.
We will still pay good cash for cars with over 80,000 miles on the clock. However, age of the vehicle becomes a greater determining factor upon its value. For example, if your car is close to ten years-old or more, we’d expect it to have racked up a figure of 80,000 miles plus.
We base rough figures on a typical average of 8,000 to 11,000 miles a year for a run-around car that tends to make many short journeys, whether to work or to the shops. For a car that does quite some motorway-driving, you’d expect on average 15,000 to 17,000 miles per year.
So, if a young car of a year or two has reached the 80,000-mile mark already, we would certainly expect the vehicle to be spotless, inside and out, aesthetically and mechanically.
We pay cash for cars via CHAPS bank transfers. This is a same-day payment at no additional charge to you – absolutely free. We are particularly proud of this, as we know some other online car buyers o charge for this service, as well as admin fees.
If your car is too old to keep running on the road, we will pay scrap value for the vehicle and dispose of it for you. We do not, however, offer a pick-up service, so we’d probably advise going to a vehicle scrapping service instead who will gladly offer cash for cars in a poor or non-starting condition.
