    How do I get cash for my car?

    Selling your car with Motorway couldn’t be easier, and you’ll get your best price paid straight into your bank account. Here’s how it works:

    • Get your initial free valuation on the Motorway homepage or app. Simply type in your reg and mileage, and see what the market-price for your vehicle truly is, based on real-time sales data from the Motorway marketplace as well as the industry at-large.
    • Profile your car from your phone. Using Motorway’s app, available on the App Store and Google Play Store, select the correct answers to questions about your car’s spec and condition. Then, use the photo tool within the app to take perfectly-angled photos of your vehicle, ideal for impressing dealers.
    • With a reserve price in place that reflects your vehicle’s current condition (usually slightly lower than your first valuation) your car goes into Motorway’s daily online sale, where dealers place their blind bids, ensuring competitive pricing. 
    • At the end of the sale, your best price will be sent to you over email, to approve with just a click. 
    • Once your motoring documents have been checked (e.g. your driver’s license, V5C, etc.) all that’s left to do is agree a date and time for free home collection with your buyer.

    Who buys cars for cash near me?

    For a quick car sales paying in cash or an instant bank transfer, there are lots of options out there including instant car-buying sites, that operate all over the UK. However, many of these companies buy vehicles at low prices in order to resell them at trade auctions and make a mark-up. You might find that you make considerably less than your car’s true value. 

    Your other options include:

    • Finding a private buyer –  expect a lot of admin and hands-on sales work if you go down this route
    • Visiting dealerships – you may have to drive around several dealerships to negotiate a price you’re happy with, but a sale should be quick and relatively easy
    • Scrap –— for particularly old vehicles, you can sell your car for scrap, often getting paid either in cash or instant bank transfer
    • Motorway – the easy, fast, and free way to sell your car for its best price, and have the cash paid straight into your bank account. 

    Not only are we totally online, connecting sellers and dealers from all over the UK, but our customers also benefit from:

    • Free car collection from home or work, at a time that suits them
    • Fast, secure payment — 83% are made the day of collection
