Simply tell us your registration and postcode to see how much you can sell your faulty car for. Our buyers in your local area compete to offer you the best deal for your vehicle, meaning you get the highest price for your faulty car.

We won’t haggle. When you get a quote, simply answer a few questions about the condition of your car in advance and if you’ve given us accurate info, you’ll get an accurate quote, no chipping the price for things like scratches, or missing trim.

It’s completely free and there’s no obligation. Plus, we’ll even save your quote for seven days.

Free car collection

Some car buying companies need you to drop your car off when you sell it – that’s not always possible, especially if your car is faulty. However, CarTakeBack offer free car collection – we’ll contact you to arrange a time and place that’s best for you. Get your car collected from work, home, a garage, or any place that suits you throughout the UK!

Official paperwork sorted

Whether your faulty car needs to be scrapped or not, we’ll help you to sort the necessary DVLA paperwork and avoid any potential fines. It’s vital that you ensure you’re free of responsibility of your old car. If you’re selling your faulty car to us, your local branch will help you to correctly inform the DVLA using your registration certificate.

If your car needs to be scrapped, we will provide you with an official DVLA Certificate of Destruction, proving you’re no longer responsible for the car.

Choosing to sell your vehicle with CarTakeBack means you can rest assured that everything legal will be sorted, hassle-free.

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
