Is there a transaction fee?
NO, here at Sellmycarfastuk.co.uk, we are proud to say that we are one of the very few online Car Buyers that do not charge any Admin Fees at all, if you choose to sell your car with sellmycarfastuk.co.uk.
What does subject to inspection mean?
Here at sellmycarfastuk.co.uk we have built a strong reputation. When you enter your details for an online valuation the details will be as accurate as possible so we can achieve the price that we have offered you online. As we have stated this can only be achieved if you have been honest and entered all the information correctly. This online valuation should not be construed as a contract.
When a member of our team arrives at your chosen place to inspect your vehicle please make sure you have all relevant documents available to be inspected. This needs to include a current V5 document in your name (the seller) a current MOT Certificate, if required service history and all relevant documentation that goes with your vehicle. If everything matches with what you have supplied online we will confirm the initial valuation was correct and happily do a bank transfer immediately into your bank account with no admin charges.
If we do find any discrepancies between your car and the details you gave online during our inspection or if we consider that it’s value is affected by any aspect of its history or condition or that the vehicle has been modified without informing sellmycarfastuk.co.uk at the time of your initial online valuation the price that we offer for your vehicle could differ from the online valuation you first received from sellmycarfastuk.co.uk.
What happens to the value of my remaining road tax?
The remaining value of your road tax is not taken into consideration when valuing your vehicle, this can be claimed back by yourself very easily by filling out a form from the DVLA, the form you require is a V14 Form, if you require a V14 Form, please ask one of our friendly sales team who will be happy to supply one to you, and if you require help to fill the form out we are happy to complete the form for you, at no charge.
I cannot find my car on your website:
Please do not choose the nearest model to your car in an attempt to obtain an online valuation, as this will not reflect an accurate valuation for your car. When we send a technician to value your car it will not match the details you have and it will delay the sale of your vehicle. If you are having trouble in locating your vehicle online for whatever reason please call one of our friendly sales team on 0333 320 8774 where we will be happy to help you gain an accurate valuation.
We will still purchase your car as long as it’s registered in the UK bear in mind those models and specifications vary from country to country so the price may differ from that of a UK supplied car in some countries.

I have outstanding Finance against my car, can you still buy it?
This is a very simple process and one that we handle on a daily basis. We can arrange settlement of any outstanding finance that you may owe on your car. For us to do this we will need you to provide an up to date letter detailing a current settlement figure from your finance company.
The settlement amount will be deducted from the amount paid to you for your car. We will pay your finance company on the day of sale however it may take your finance company 5-10 working days to credit the funds to your account and provide final clearance.
We will deal with your finance company and provide you with a copy receipt of the bank transaction to satisfy you that the payment has been settled in full. If you owe more on the finance than the value of the car we will still be happy to buy the car but you will need to pay us the shortfall by debit card when we purchase your car.
