Selling Your Car: How Does It Work?

Selling Your Car: How Does It Work?

Selling your car can be quite daunting, but with Macklin Motors, it’s never been simpler and you will have peace of mind that you’ll be paid quickly and safely.

In this guide, we will cover everything you need to know about the payment process when you choose to sell your car to us, including when you’ll receive your payment and how we keep your data safe.

Read on to find out more.

How much is my car worth?

This depends on a number of factors, including the condition of your vehicle and its current mileage. Once you have completed your free online valuation and provided us with the necessary information, we will calculate the value of your car.  

One of our friendly experts will carry out an inspection on the vehicle, to ensure the condition matches the information provided in the valuation.

If we’re happy that the vehicle is in the condition that was originally stated, you’ll receive the amount we valued your car for.

Please note: For vehicles that are worth more than £25,000, you will need to book an appointment with your local dealership to discuss this further.

When will I receive payment?

After you have received your valuation, we will ask you to book an appointment at your local dealership and arrange for the vehicle to be brought down so we can carry out an inspection.

If you decide you’d like to go ahead with the sale, we can then begin processing all the necessary paperwork.

How long does it take for the money to clear?

Payment will be made via a BACS transfer, which will arrive in your bank account in 3-5 working days.

Is the payment process secure?

When you choose to sell your car with Macklin Motors, you’re guaranteed the most professional service.

Payment is made via a BACS transfer for added security and we follow GDPR regulations to ensure the safety of your details.
