This website at motorway.co.uk (the “Website”), is operated by, or on behalf of, Motorway Online Ltd (“Motorway”, “we” or “us”) to provide users a free online car dealer buying service for car-related transactions (“Services”).
1. Contacting us
If you have any questions you can contact us at International House, 24 Holborn Viaduct, London EC1A 2BN or email us at email@example.com.
4. Our Services
Motorway works with a range of car buying partners to deliver the Services. Such car buying partners include those engaging through the Motorway auction platform for eligible cars (“Dealer Partners”), and, where cars are ineligible for the Motorway auction platform, car buying partners who will engage through a traditional sales process (“Online Car Buyers” and, together with Dealer Partners, “Car Buying Partners”).
This Website provides the Services through which you may:
- Submit details of your car or another vehicle (including via our document capture feature) and your personal contact details to get an online valuation via one or more of our Car Buying Partners; and
- Submit your personal contact details in order for us or our Car Buying Partners to contact you about your car valuation, and/or a potential transaction regarding your vehicle.
You accept that any online valuation shown on our Website is indicative only and is based on a set of assumptions about your vehicle. You understand that the actual price offered and/or paid for your vehicle by a Car Buying Partner may change following further discussion with, or inspection of the vehicle by, one of our Car Buying Partners. Submitting your details to our Website does not oblige or bind you to sell your vehicle to any of our Car Buying Partners.
Specific services that we offer, or make available to you from time to time, through the Website may also be governed by additional or alternative terms and conditions with us, or other third parties (including third party privacy policies). Where you take up any such services, please review these additional terms and conditions carefully.
5. Motorway Car Buying Partners
You acknowledge that the valuations on our Website (and, if applicable, any subsequent purchase of your vehicle) are offers from our third party Car Buying Partners, not from us. You are not contracting directly with us for the provision of any car buying services and those services do not form part of the Services. Although we select our Car Buying Partners carefully (to attempt to provide you with the best possible price for your vehicle, and the best possible customer service), we are not party to your transaction with any Car Buying Partner. As such, we do not make any representations, guarantees or warranties of any kind that the prices provided to us by our Car Buying Partners are accurate, or representative of the true value of your car.
All communications between you and any of our Car Buying Partners is subject to the terms and conditions of that Car Buying Partner, and we accept no responsibility for any deal, car purchase, payment or disputes that may arise between you and the Car Buying Partner.

11. Pricing claims
The aim of the Motorway service is to provide vehicle sellers with a simple, online way to get the best offer for their vehicle from Motorway’s network of Car Buying Partners.
We conduct analytical research on historic car buyer offers shown on our website, actual sale prices from completed sales, and pricing variations over time.
Where we make a claim such as “You could get up to £1,000 more”, this is based on an analysis between the highest and lowest offers from our Car Buying Partners across a large sample of enquiries, ensuring a significant proportion of customers achieve a variance of at least this figure if selecting the highest offer over the lowest.
Comparison pricing data analysed always excludes offers from scrap or recycling firms, so that offers are compared on a ‘full value’ basis.
Any claims relating to this research are subject to change over time and variance in samples. Research and related claims are updated regularly.
For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
