    Sell my car to a dealer online

    When selling your car, the first option that probably comes to mind is to find a car dealer – either for a direct transaction  or a part exchange. There’s a good reason for this – dealers have been buying used cars from motorists since combustion engines were brought to market! These days, though, most of us prefer the convenience of finding a buyer online. 

    This is where Motorway comes in. Selling your car with Motorway means over 5,000 verified dealers UK-wide have the opportunity to compete to offer you their best price for your car. It’s free, easy, and 100% online. You’ll find a dealer to buy your car straight from your phone!

    How do I sell to a dealer?

    Motorway can place your car in front of thousands of professional car dealers, so you’ll get their best price. There are, however, other ways to sell your car to a dealer, or at least a professional buyer: 

    • Instant car-buying sites – these are normally very quick, but can mean lower prices
    • Car classified ad sites – these can require  a lot of time and admin profiling and then selling your car
    • Driving to a dealership – it can be hard to negotiate a good price when talking with one dealership at a time, whether you sell or part-exchange 

    At Motorway, we’re constantly working to build the best way for people to sell their cars, straight to verified dealers, from their phone . Unlike these other options, we won’t make you choose between price and convenience – you can have both, with no extra effort. And it’s 100% free!
