How to Sell your Car by Auction

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

Remember, unlike other services, it is our job to get you the highest price for your car or van.

Three simple steps to sell your car or commercial vehicle

1 – Come along to our car auction offices

Please bring your:

  • Vehicle
  • 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

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 you may download it now.

3 – Fast, secure payment

3 – Fast, secure payment

When your car sells, we will post you a cheque two 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 within six working days of the sale.

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.

Great company. Car sold straight away, cheque arrived 48 hours later. Most painless car sale I’ve ever had and was sold for the right price.

The benefits of selling by auction

  1. You are in control.
  2. You choose when you bring your vehicle in for sale.
  3. There is no waiting around for potential buyers to turn up.
  4. Our experienced auctioneer will give you a guide to the value of your vehicle and help you set a reserve price.
  5. No money worries – we’ll pay you from our bank so no worries about collecting your money from the buyer.
  6. We have been in business for over 170 years; you can rely on us.
  7. And perhaps most important of all – It’s our job to get you the very best price!

Start here

Once you have completed our simple online entry form we'll arrange to list it on our website where it will be seen by thousands of buyers that view our website every week.

When you deliver your car our auctioneers will help you set a reserve price - this is the minimum price you are happy to sell your car for.

How much does it cost?

It cost nothing to enter your car in our sales. When it sells we charge a commission from the sale price. If your car does not sell there is nothing to pay.

There's no need for you to worry about adverts, letting people test drive your car, dealing with payment or any problems after you have sold your car. We deal with all of that for you.
