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 quote, no chipping prices 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.

Top Take Back service

It was a very positive experience. The price they offered was better than the other quoted valuations I obtained. The online process was straightforward and efficient. Finally the collection of my vehicle was fast and friendly. So altogether a great experience!


Quick and easy to get a quote. The only downfall was waiting a week for it to be picked up, but the pick up driver was very helpful and polite towards me. Overall would recommend this company.

A great service

Car Take Back is a great service and I got a very good price. Once I had discussed all the details with the agent the price was fixed with no issues after that. Very friendly team that picked it up.

Good service

I thought this service was spot on: they came on time, took my car snf give me £220. I thought this was a decent amount for scrap as my car was a write-off. No hassle at all.

Great service

Excellent service Super friendly pick up drive that found my car which unfortunately was in a lay-by but found me with my three words app... payment was was quick the next day

Great service.

Easy to use, straightforward process to book the collection and receive payment. I'd recommend, especially if you're not able to take your car away yourself.

Very Straightforward and Professional

Very easy and straightforward to use the car buying service. Good prices offered..Good communication. Very professional. Would definitely use the service again.

Prompt reliable no hassle service

Very simple, fair price paid for vehicle, prompt collection and certificate of destruction received promptly. Glad I found them as many other firms won't take very old cars.

5 stars

Very easy to deal with this company, they did every thing they said , payment was within 24 hours. And a good price paid. The collecting driver was very friendly & courteous, altogether an excellent transaction
