My car has outstanding finance, can I still sell my car to you?

Absolutely! A large percentage of the cars we buy every day have some finance remaining on them. A study by SMMT, the country's main source of vehicle data for the motoring industry shows that since 2018 car finance has been used in over 90% of all new car purchases every year from 2018 to 2021.

Consequently, we buy cars that have outstanding finance every day of the week and so we are used to dealing with this type of purchase.

If your car has outstanding finance on the day that we purchase your vehicle, we will deal directly with your finance company on your behalf and pay off all of the remaining debt using money from the purchase price. Any balance remaining will then be paid directly into your bank account via instant bank transfer.

Once the sale of the car has been agreed and you have received your payment, our vehicle purchaser will take the vehicle's keys and we will arrange for our transport team to collect the vehicle.
