The primary reason for selling a car is to get funds to put towards a new one, but many people sell their car in order to get some much needed cash. You might not be that desperate for the money, but it is more likely you would prefer the cash now rather than later.
In such occasions, unless you already have someone wishing to buy your vehicle, a car buying service is going to be the quickest way of selling it. Simply putting your car details on a classifieds website or sticking a 'For Sale' sign in the back of it and crossing your fingers is never going to bring you a quick return. However, utilising a service that buys cars like yours every day of the year will give you the turnaround you need. There are also a number of tactics you may use to expediate the process, and ensure that your vehicle is sold in a timely manner.
One vital thing you need when selling your car is your V5C logbook. It may well be buried along with lots of other paperwork, but you will need it in order to sell your vehicle, so you should dig it out long before starting your car selling process. If you've lost or cannot find your logbook you will have to get a new one issued by the DVLA, and this can take weeks. So, making sure you have this document to hand is your first step for a quick sale. Should your details be wrong on the V5C, you will also need to get a new copy, so make sure it is up-to-date.
Additional paperwork you will need are an item of photographic ID (such as your driving license or passport) and two pieced of documentation with your address featured. Should you not have such documents to hand, then you will need to order them, which can add more time to your car selling process. Make sure you keep proofs of address to hand and up to date (they must be no less than three months old). When all your paperwork is ready you'll be able to have your vehicle inspected and valued, and then all that stands in your way of payment is for you to accept the offer.
Should you really need to sell your car quickly, you should arrange an appointment with us as soon as possible. Due to the working week, the majority of appointments are available on weekdays, with weekends being pretty busy and sometimes difficult to get appointments on. If you can arrange time off work for an appointment then it is more likely your car is sold sooner. So, to start your speedy car sale, enter your registration plate in the form at the top of the page, and make sure all your documentation is available and up-to-date.
