  1. Get a free valuation

    It all starts with a smart Motorway valuation! Our valuation tool is very clever, built on data from our very own marketplace and the wider industry. That means the price you get is based on how cars just like yours really have been selling. To get started, we just need your reg and mileage and you’ll get an instant valuation. If you like what you see, then it’s always recommended that you act — the car market is changing all the time and your car’s value might be very different in a few weeks’ time!

    Motorway is the stress-free way to sell your car, and that means no long-winded car descriptions for you to write. We’ve made it easy for you to share all your information with our dealers, in fact, you can do it in just a few minutes and a couple taps of your phone. We’ll ask you simple questions so we can build your car profile, and we’ll walk you through the angles dealers will want to see too, easily shot and shared right from your phone.

  3. And now we wait

    But not for long! We’ll upload your car to our sales platform and invite our dealers to view it. Our sales run daily and if dealers like what they see, then they have to offer their best price, and hope other dealers don’t beat them to it. And that’s how we make it the dealer-vs-dealer and not dealer-vs-seller way to sell your car. No stress, no haggling, easy. You could get a great price for your car in as little as 24 hours and we’ll be in touch as soon as the sale ends.

  4. Your dealer will collect your car from your home

    No need to go anywhere, your winning dealer will collect your car from your home. They’ll give it a quick inspection to make sure it’s accurate to your profile and then they’ll pay you through secure bank transfer. You can usually see funds appear in your account within one business day.

  5. Done!

    Go you, you’ve just sold your car the Motorway way!

A bit about London Taxi

The London Taxi Company was founded in 1919 and was known for producing the iconic London black cab. Based in Coventry, the car manufacturer originally built vehicles using Austin components. While London taxis still remain a key feature of the capital, the company itself went into administration in 2013 before being picked up by Geely. Under this new ownership, the company was revived as the London EV Company, producing electric-powered London cabs and continuing to operate from Coventry but at a new site.

The London Taxi Company in its original form was founded in 1919 and counted MG and Alvis as among their first major customers. It wasn’t until the 1930s that the brand concentrated on taxis, when, after the war, the brand negotiated with Mann & Overton to take over the manufacturing of the Austin FX3 taxi. Over 7,000 taxis were made in ten years, and in 1954, the brand was taken over by the BSA, which placed it under the Daimler car manufacturer. During this period, the London Taxi Company concentrated on both private vehicles and taxis, though by the ‘70s, taxis became the mainstay of the manufacturer.

In 1973, the brand was sold to Manganese Bronze Holdings and efforts were made to create a new taxi purely developed by the brand, but costs meant this new model, the FX5, had to be abandoned. This meant that by the 1980s, the brand had only the FX4 among its offerings despite attempts to launch new models including a Range Rover and a Ford vehicle. In 1984, the FX4 model was further built upon to create the LTI Fairway.

Modern touches were given to each update of the London Taxi Company’s vehicles throughout the ‘90s and ‘00s, including ramps for wheelchair users and swivel-out seats. However, the brand was hit by financial issues in 2012. Saved by Geely who already held 20% of shares in the company, the brand was remodelled to match the modernisation of the London cab. As of 2017, the company is known as the London EV Company and produces electric vehicles to serve as London taxis, the first of which was the LEVC TX.
