We Buy Any Car
- C (8th Jun 2021 18:20:32)

Just wondering if anyone has used We Buy Any Car? I'll be replacing my car soon and WBAC are offering quite a bit more than the dealer's trade in value.

However, I have heard that the value WBAC advertise is then reduced when you turn up with your car for them to inspect and you don't actually get their headline valuation.

Has anyone had a good experience with this company or any of the other similar ones?

Yes, expect to lose £1k off of your price.

If your brave enough and not in huge rush wait another few weeks and your new valuation could go up but also could go down depending on demand for your car!!!

Hi C,

We used WeBuyAnyCar last year, they gave us a very good price online, so we took our car to a location in Aldershot where they examined the car and adjusted the price by a few hundred pounds due to some damage to the rims and some scratches.

All very reasonable, you have the option to proceed or abort after an initial examination. We returned a week later to drop off the car and received the funds a few days later, really simple and easy to use.

We had a great experience with them, so yes, I would recommend them if you want a quick and simple way to sell your car without hassle.

Kind regards,
Pete

Don't use them. I once had an old car that I wanted to sell. Went on to the website and they quoted me £75. I sold if privately for £750, and it was worth that money.

I too have used this retailer, a couple of times albeit a few years back.
Both experiences were positive or I wouldn’t have repeated the exercise.
They didn’t test drive either cars,it was all very straight forward,and I received the funds as estimated and quickly.

Thank you everyone, very helpful. I will probably take the car to the Aldershot site and see what they offer but be willing to leave without accepting.

Have just sold a car with The Car Buying Group who were excellent. Matched WBAC's price, no additional fees, and a very secure payment process before the car title was transferred. They also sent a professional driver from Leeds to collect.

Thank you Paul, I'll contact them too.

Just to follow up on this:

I took the car to We Buy Any Car in Aldershot, but as expected they made quite a reduction in their headline offer, so didn't go with this.

However, The Car Buying Group made a very good offer and they have collected our car today after a few checks here followed by a bank transfer of the full amount - this was 16% more than the dealer was offering as a trade in. Very professional and highly recommended.

@C - great to hear The Car Buying Group was a good experience for you too! As I wasn't sure who they were I did some research, and they were formed last year out of 2 (or 3?) large corporate fleet and car auction companies. They seem to know their stuff, and like you the whole process was straight forward and payment was instant.

Great to see any kind of new business doing well and getting good feedback.
