Dropping your car off

When you get to your local branch, you’ll need to have a few things with you…

Excellent. Great communication and professional service

From contacting the company to collection of the vehicle, the service provided was great. Communication was good throughout and Kevin who collected the vehicle was professional, efficient and friendly. An excellent service all round.


Excellent service, easy to use. I got a good quote for my car, once accepted they were in touch to arrange collection. Collection was quick and easy. Within a day I'd received the money and certificate of destruction of my vehicle. Very well organised company.

Very friendly, very easy to use service

From the chap on the phone, to the very helpful truck driver who picked up the vehicle, a pleasant experience throughout, unusual for the motor trade some might say..thanks to all involved.

Excellent service

Very quick from start to finish, was contacted quickly after filling in the online form, collection of my car was by a lovely gent, very professional, happy especially for 8:45 in the morning

Great service!!

Amazing service! Quick and easy! However I sold my car to CarTakeBack 1 week and a half ago and have not received confirmation of reporting it to the DVLA. Other than that, amazing service, received the money straight away.
