We make it easy for you to sell your car — for the best price and with the least hassle — payment sent within 48 hours


Great company. Gave me a lift to the station, car sold the next day, cheque arrived 48 hours later.

Most painless car sale I’ve ever had and was sold for the right price.

3 simple steps to sell your car or commercial vehicle

Watch this video and see how our auctioneer helps Sally sell her car at our auction.

1 – Come along to our car auction offices

Please bring your:

  • Car
  • V5 Registration Document (Log book)
  • Spare Key
  • MOT Certificate
  • Service documents if you have these

We are just 2 minutes from junction 10 of the M20 – Map and Directions

2 – Complete a simple entry form

  • We can help you with this and will be pleased to help you set a reserve price.
  • You can pick up an entry form when you visit our office or download an entry form here.

3 – Fast secure payment

When your car sells we will post you a cheque 2 working days after the auction.

Or, if you prefer, we’ll pay the money directly to your bank by BACS – this will credit your account 4 working days following the sale. We’ll need a copy of your bank statement or paying-in book so we can verify your details and avoid any delays.

Our auction fees will be deducted from the sale proceeds so there’s nothing for you to pay now.

That’s it – all done

We sort out all the DVLA forms for you letting them know you have sold the vehicle and cancelling any remaining road tax.

We will then

  • List your car on our website where it will be seen by thousands of buyers that view our website every week.
  • Help you fix a reserve when you deliver your car — this is the minimum price you are happy to sell your car for.

And only takes a minute or two.

The benefits of selling by auction

  • You are in control.
  • You choose when you bring your vehicle in for sale.
  • There is no waiting around for potential buyers to turn up.
