Motorway provides vehicle sellers with a simple, online way to get the best price for their vehicle from Motorway’s network of verified car dealers.

How can you get more money than you expected for your car?

The claim “you could get more money than expected” is based on a survey of 40,343 customers who sold vehicles with Motorway between October 2021 and March 2022, analysed and independently verified by Blue Yonder Research. This independent analysis revealed 56.3% of customers achieved a final sale price for their vehicle that was higher than their agreed ‘reserve price’, i.e. the minimum price the customer was willing to sell their vehicle for.

How can you get £1,000 more for your car?

The claim “You could get £1,000 more” is based on a survey of 3,000 customers who sold vehicles on Motorway between 1st August 2021 and 28th Jan 2022, analysed and independently verified by Blue Yonder Research in January 2022. This revealed 51% of consumers achieved £1,000 or more with Motorway than their initial quote from other companies.

We analysed final prices achieved by individual Motorway customers, cross-referencing this with data they have provided in response to a Motorway survey, asking whether they received an alternative offer for their vehicle. We analyse this data, and the claim “You could get up to £1,000 more” is based on an analysis of the final sale price on the Motorway platform relative to offers received from other companies.
