    Sell my car frequently asked questions

    Frequently asked questions about selling your car

    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.

You’ll receive your highest offer from our online daily sale, and if your car is as described during profiling, you’ll receive every penny.
