    How much is my car worth?

    Car prices are changing all the time, so what your car is worth today may be very different this time next year, or even next month. There are consistent factors that will always affect your car’s depreciation; its age, mileage, condition, and service history often being the most impactful. 

    In recent times, external factors have meant both new and used car prices are high in the car market, which is having a significant effect on the value of every car. In the 2020s, it’s been more important than ever to be aware of your car’s changing value. 

    Motorway’s smart valuation tech uses live data from the UK car market and daily sales info from our own network, so no matter when you check your used car’s value, your estimated selling price will always be accurate. Click here for a free car valuation.

    Where can I sell my car?

    There are several online and in-person ways to sell your car, including: 

    • Classified car selling sites – mostly subject to fees, and time-consuming
    • Part-exchange – the price may not be as high as selling your car outright
    • Instant car buyers – can mean lower prices, admin fees, and driving to hubs
    • Motorway – more than 5,000 dealers compete to give you their best price. Sell your car from your phone, with free home collection and fast payment. 

    What paperwork do I need to sell my car?

    Dealers need to see some key paperwork and official digital records before they finalise a sale and collect your car, including:

    In case you don’t have a V5C document, you can get information on selling your car without a V5C. However, we recommend you try getting one before selling.

    There are many car buying sites out there, but the Motorway way is uniquely quick, easy, and rewarding. When you sell your car in Motorway’s daily online sale, more than 5,000 verified car dealers from across the UK compete to give you their best price.

    Can I sell my car on finance?

    Yes, you can sell your financed car, with Motorway if it’s on a Hire Purchase (HP) or Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) agreement.

    You don’t have to have paid off all of the finance already; but subject to your contract, there may be a minimum repayment before you have the right to sell.

    If you’re ready to sell on finance, the first step is to get a settlement letter with the ‘settlement figure’ from your lender, and get a car valuation. Read more in our guide to selling your financed car.

    Is it better to part exchange or sell your car?

    Trading in, or part-exchanging a car, has traditionally been seen as an easy solution – you get rid of your outgoing car, in exchange for a discount on your next one. You don’t have to advertise your car first, deal with strangers on your doorstep, or take anyone on test drives. However, part exchange is often not the way to get the best price. You may be able to make more by selling it outright, such as with Motorway

    Some car finance contracts encourage part-exchanging at a certain point, especially Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) finance deals. However, what you might not know is that you actually have the right to sell your financed car, as an alternative to part-exchanging.

    For more information, read our guide on how to part exchange a financed car.

    How long does it take to sell a car with Motorway?

    Selling your car can be done quickly and easily with Motorway. When you get your free, instant valuation, if your car is eligible to be sold via our nationwide dealer network, you can proceed to profile your car on our app or website.

    You’ll be guided through how to take photos on your phone that show all your car’s key angles, condition and any damage. It will enter our next available daily online sale (often the next day), and dealers will compete to give you their best price.

    To complete the sale, we’ll send you their highest offer to buy your car, to accept or decline. Your buying dealer will then set a date with you for a free home collection, and that’s when the sale is completed and money is transferred into your bank account with a fast payment.

    Typically, the whole process from valuation to collection takes between two and seven days, but it can also be done in as little 24 hours. Our customers usually accept their best price on the day they receive it, after the daily sale is complete.

    How does service history impact selling my car?

    Keeping records of all your service history will help you get a fair and accurate price once you’re ready to sell your car. When you can prove you’ve maintained your car well and fixed any issues early, your buyer will have confidence in the vehicle’s condition inside and out.

    Can I get more money selling online than part exchange?

    Selling your car on Motorway in their online daily sale means that a network of over 5,000 verified dealers has the opportunity to offer their best price. This is much more competitive than a typical part-exchange deal you can get from a dealer, where your sale and your purchase are rolled into one transaction.

    Does Motorway have an app to sell your car?

    Yes, Motorway has an Apple iPhone and Android app, that makes it even easier to take photos, profile and complete your sale from your mobile device.
