Sell Your Old Car With CarTakeBack!

If it’s time to say goodbye to your old car, CarTakeBack will give you the best price. Whether it’s ready to be scrapped or it’s still got some miles left in it. CarTakeBack buys any old cars, whatever the condition.  

Our process is hassle-free, saving you the time of selling privately or searching car dealerships to find out the best deal. We instantly find you the top price in the local area for your old car – you only need to tell us your registration and postcode.

3 easy steps to sell your old car

  • Find out how much money you’ll get for your old car with our instant, online quote tool.
  • Choose to drop your car off at a local branch or arrange collection.
  • You get paid and we help to sort out the DVLA paperwork.

Get the best price for your old car

To get a free, no obligation valuation for your old car, we simply need you to tell us your car registration and postcode. It's free to get your instant quote, plus we'll guarantee it for a week!

Our quotes are tailored to your individual car. Your registration tells us the type of car and we use the postcode to determine its location. You then see the top price to sell your old car to local CarTakeBack buyers.

When you get a quote, you may be asked a few questions about the condition of your car and if you've given us accurate info, you'll get an accurate price, no chipping for things like scratches to the bodywork, or missing trim.

Choose car collection or drop off locally

We aim to make selling your old car as hassle free as possible so we offer free car collection. If you have a preferred time and date, you have the opportunity to tell us. We’ll also try and agree to as short a time-frame as possible for collection.

If you’d prefer, you can drop your old car off at a local branch. There’s no need to make an appointment, simply drop by during the opening hours and bring along your reference number to confirm the details of your quote.

Official paperwork sorted

We have an expert Customer Services Team to help you along the way with selling your old car and we even help to sort the necessary DVLA paperwork.

We’ll help you to notify the DVLA correctly using your registration certificate (V5C), ensuring you avoid any fines and freeing you from the responsibility of your old car.
