January 2017 was the first month since the Brexit vote to see new car sales rise. And with new car registration plates being available from today it could be another busy month for new car sales.

So we're all busy buying new cars, but what about when it comes to selling our old cars? CarTakeBack have found that selling an old car privately isn't as easy as it could be.

Our survey showed us that 31% of the private car sellers described selling their car as time consuming, 29% thought it was stressful and 14% said it was irritating. The reoccurring issues for people were worrying about strangers turning up to view the car, having their time wasted by tyre kickers, and buyers wanting to haggle over the price.

More people are turning to the internet to sell their old car and with CarTakeBack you can relax knowing that we won't haggle over the price and your car will be bought quickly. You don't even need to leave your home, just fill in your registration and postcode to get an instant valuation for your car, and you'll be able to arrange for your car to be collected at a time to suit you!

Racing driver, motoring journalist, and presenter of TV show Fifth Gear, Vicki Butler-Henderson, had this to say:

"Brits find it so hard to sell an old car because of time wasters… almost a third of people coming to look at your car want to haggle over the price… CarTakeBack totally take the stress away from selling a used car…"

Hear what she had to say about it all.
