Common car sales questions

What's the difference between the sale price and valuation?

Motorway provides an instant real-world valuation for your car based on live market data and vehicle information. A reserve price is then agreed upon by adding details about the car's specifications, service history, condition, and any damage.

Your vehicle is then shared with their nationwide dealer network, which will start making offers to you. You can choose the highest bid and proceed with the final sale price, which could exceed the reserve price.

Can I sell my car if it failed its MOT?

Yes, but you have to make sure you notify the buyers. Car dealers and private sellers are allowed to sell vehicles without a valid MOT certificate. 

Is selling my car through Motorway free?

Yes! It's completely free to you! Motorway makes money from the dealers who buy the cars by charging them a fee, so there's no cost to list and sell your vehicle.

Should I repair my car before selling it?

It's up to you! While fixing up your car may increase its value, it could also prove more costly than it's worth. Some repairs, like expensive bodywork or big engine parts, may not add enough value to justify the cost.

If you're unsure, you can list it in its current condition to test the market and see what the response is and what offers you get.

Can I sell a car with outstanding finance?

Yes! Motorway works with over 5,000 car dealers with experience buying used cars on finance. When the dealer buys your car, they'll pay off any remaining outstanding debt. Read our in-depth guide on this topic.

What paperwork do I need to sell my car?

To sell a car, you'll need the V5C logbook, service history, MOT certificates (although this can be checked online), insurance repair records, and parts receipts.

The latter may not be essential but would help answer any questions the dealership may have. These documents provide essential information about the car's history and ownership.

How does Motorway compare to selling a car privately?

When you sell your car privately, you pay a small fee to place an ad on a classified ads website and hope that someone will respond. You then meet them to show off and test drive the vehicle before agreeing to a price with you.

If you don’t mind strangers showing up at your house and would prefer to sell your car for the most money possible, this is the best method. But be prepared to haggle!

Selling privately also comes with uncertainty, as you just won't know how long it might take to find a serious buyer. With Motorway, all of this hassle is taken away from the process - just list your car, watch offers come in, and accept one that you're happy with!

How long does it take to sell through Motorway? 

With a little organisation, you can have cash in the bank and your car collected in as little as 24 hours. On average, the entire process, from initial inquiry to payment, takes two to seven days, giving you ample time to plan the next adventure with the money you've made.

Best of all, you'll work out the timing of collection and payment directly with your chosen dealership after finalising the sale.

How safe is it to sell my car online?

Selling your car through Motorway is very safe because they work with a network of over 5,000 expert car dealers nationwide.

Say goodbye to the stress of dealing with anonymous online buyers and enjoy a seamless, professional experience.

When will I receive payment for my sold car?

Most Motorway customers sell their vehicles, arrange a collection and get paid within 24 hours.
