About Sella-car.co.uk

Sella-car.co.uk was set up when we realised it was becoming increasingly difficult for private sellers to sell their cars. As you may be aware, the motor trade in general has gone through a lot of changes in the past few years.

There have been several buy my car companies come and go over the years. We have been helping customers to get cash for their cars since 2005 and going from strength to strength.

We work on the simple idea that we treat our customers the way we would like to be treated ourselves, with respect. It really is that simple. If we look after our customers they will look after us.

In the past when it came time to say “where can I sell my car” you probably thought of the following:

Part exchange for a new car:

This is OK if you are going to buy from the same manufacturer, and you should get a fair trade in. If you decide to buy a different brand of new car the salesman is likely to bid you a very low price for your car.

Ask a Dealer to pay cash for your car without buying something else:

Driving your car from forecourt to forecourt asking somebody to buy your car is not a nice experience. You are on their territory and they know this. They will find every excuse to put your car down and offer you a pittance for it. All in all it can be a horrible experience. Some other companies offering to buy your car will try this as well, be careful as once you get there you never get what the online offer was.

Sell by private advertising

Private adverts have got really expensive over the last few years and the response from them is a fraction of what it was 5 years ago. I remember Autotrader advertising ‘Mr J Bloggs from Hull had 46 phone call and sold his Mondeo on the first morning of publication.’ Now Mr Bloggs would be lucky if phone rings at all. You could also try eBay but you really have to have your wits about you with everyone trying to scam you these days.

This, coupled with having complete strangers picking and poking your car to bits and then wanting to take it out (probably uninsured) on a white knuckle ride, is not a nice way to spend your Saturday afternoon.
