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.

Satisfied customer

Very fair with their offer and on time with their collection Offer was way higher than other other offers and payment was quickly transferred to my account.M Woods

Great service

Simple, quick and reliable service that lets you compare best rates for scrap. Booked, and sorted hassle free. No issues with payment. Will use again and recommend

Smooth process

All went really smoothly. I completed all details online then received a call within 10 minutes to confirm my answers and to confirm price etc. Car was collected within 2 days and I was paid about an hour after collection. Would recommend.

Car pick up

Easy process booking, but arranged pick up day missed, with no contact. Picked up next day. Few days delay in receiving payment, but eventually sorted.

Unnecessarily worried

Quick and easy. I was a bit worried that I wouldn't be paid or the car wouldn't be reported as scrapped to the DVLA, but I was paid within 24hrs and the vehicle has been scrapped. The guy who came for the car was friendly and helpful.

A nice and easy service.

A nice easy service to use. Get your quote, they collect the car, you get paid. Nice! Driver doing the collecting needs to cheer up a bit, but we've all had those days.

Easy to access and contact. Speedy response and able to book a collection time that suited. Very fair price and money received quickly. Professional service on day of collection.

Painless, fast and professional

Well that was easy. Great communication from the off after the initial online quote, everything explained, collection bang on time, money transferred next day. Couldn't be smoother, very happy.
