    Sell your Bedford vehicle today

    At Motorway, we work with a network of 5,000+ verified UK dealers. This means that when you sell with us, we can usually find you a car buyer the very same day!

    1. Get a free valuation now – with Motorway, you can get a valuation that is instant, free, and based on real-time market information. Our valuations aren’t just plucked out of the air – they are based on wider industry trade statistics and our own online sales. So, our car valuations are as accurate as possible – and based on how Bedford cars and vans just like yours have been selling. To get started, all we need is your reg and mileage. Because our valuations are based on online sales from the used car market it means that they can change quickly – so, the valuation you receive today may look very different to one you receive in a few months’ time. Once you’ve received your valuation, if you like what you see, why not start selling your car the Motorway way?
    2. Create a bespoke car profile – Car profiles can be tricky. How do you go about showing your car in the best possible light whilst still being completely honest? Should you mention scratches or dents in the bodywork? How long should the profile be? And how much detail is it best to go into? With Motorway, we’ve made profiling your car a simple, straightforward process. You answer a few easy questions, and we guide you through which photos you should provide of your car. That’s it. Usually, it can all be done from your phone – and in a matter of minutes.

      When it comes to presenting your car to our dealers, you really don’t have to worry about hiding dents, scratches, or any minor cosmetic damage. They are all very experienced and will expect a used car to have some imperfections. It is best to just be as honest as possible when describing your car. If your profile is not accurate, it’s likely that the sale will fall through after the buyer comes to inspect it.

    3. No haggling and no fuss – just wait to hear from us – our customers love how simple it is to sell cars and vans using Motorway. Most of the good reviews we receive mention the simplicity of selling vehicles using our free platform. When you sell with Motorway, there is no haggling, no negotiation and no dealers chipping away at your price. Once your vehicle’s profile is created, we alert our dealers that it is entering an online sale and invite them to make their best offer. That’s it. It couldn’t really be much easier!

      If the best offer you receive works for you – perfect! You can go ahead with that sale! If you think you can get a better price elsewhere, that’s great too! At Motorway, we will never pressure you to sell. You’re never locked into anything. That’s not the Motorway way!

    4. The dealer with the best offer collects your car for free – Unlike some other car-buying websites, we’ll never ask you to drive your car to some out-of-the-way dropping-off point and then ask you to make your own way home. With Motorway, your winning dealer will come to your designated pick-up point, give your car a quick inspection to ensure it matches the details you’ve added in your car profile – and then they’ll pay you the agreed price by secure bank transfer. In most circumstances, the payment will arrive in your bank account on the very same day.
    5. Congratulations! You’ve sold your car the Motorway way! – no fuss, and your car has been sold – and for the best price. Now all you have to do is think about what you’ll do with the money!

    A bit about Bedford:

    Bedford Vehicles – more usually known simply as Bedford – is a car brand based in the town of Luton in the UK. It was set up in 1931 by Vauxhall Motors, a subsidiary of US-based automotive giant General Motors (GM).

    Most well-known for building commercial vehicles; during its lifetime, Bedford Vehicles has been a leading international lorry brand, with substantial export sales of light, medium, and heavy lorries across the globe.

    Before the creation of the Bedford brand, GM would assemble trucks in Britain with parts manufactured in Canada. This enabled the US company to import vehicles into the UK under the terms of ‘Imperial Preference’ – under which, products from the British Empire paid significantly lighter import duties. These trucks were branded as ‘British Chevrolet’.

    When GM purchased Vauxhall Motors in the mid-1920s, the production plant was re-sited to Luton in Bedfordshire. The early trucks off the production line – such as the AC and LQ models – were styled as ‘Chevrolet Bedford’, named after the county town of Bedfordshire.

    These early models were used for a variety of roles, including lorries, ambulances, vans, and buses. In 1931, the ‘Chevrolet’ was dropped – and the first Bedford vehicles were marketed.

    During the Second World War, the British Army only had about 100 tanks, most of which were obsolete and inferior to the new German ones. Accordingly, Bedford Vehicles were asked to produce a superior heavy tank. In May 1941, the first ‘Churchill tank’ went into production in Luton. More than 250 of which later saw active service on the Eastern Front, helping the Allies to win the war.

    In the 1950s, commercial vehicle manufacture was moved to the newly built Bedford Dunstable plant, where production lines were famously over a mile long. This included the launch of the popular S type trucks – known as ‘Big Bedfords’ – the first of the company’s 7-ton range.

    Only production of vans and smaller commercial vehicles remained at the Luton plant. This included the Bedford CF, which the company brought to the market to compete directly with the Ford Transit. Whilst it was used by many national companies, it ultimately proved less popular than the Transit which was seen as cheaper to both run and maintain.

    In the 1980s, the company brought out the Bedford TM – the largest of all the modern Bedfords. Though popular, the TM could never compete in terms of payloads with competitors like Volvo and Scania.

    In 1987, GM halted Bedford’s core heavy lorry production, renaming that part of the business AWD Trucks. The Bedford brand continued for light commercial vehicles and vans – but it was ultimately retired in 1991.

    Bedford used a similar Griffin logo to Vauxhall Motors on its badges. Later designs show the Griffin holding a flag carrying the letter ‘B’, for Bedford, instead of ‘V’ for Vauxhall.
