Being honest about the condition of your car is key to getting the best from these online buyers. Gather all your cars information together, and make sure you know exactly what specification your car is and what options are fitted. Every detail counts for example, the difference between half- and full-leather trim can be 500 or more. Youll also need to be honest about the cars condition, including any damage.

Scuffed alloys, broken windows and worn or torn upholstery all knock the price down, so dont set yourself up for a fall by not being honest up front. Some companies are interested in cars only up to a certain age and mileage; others dont offer a collection service, but are willing to pay a little more.
