    I sold my BMW X5 to Sell The Car and they were extremely efficient and very easy to deal with. I really liked the no haggle promise which other such companies abuse. Sell The Car paid the price they offered in the first place. Unlike their rivals who is offer a higher price to lure you in then reduce the price when they are about to take the car away. I would definitely recommend them.

    Very easy straightforward process. I was quoted a price for my car before it was collected. On the day it was collected I had a call when the person coming for it was about an hour away. My money was later transferred into my account. Easy Peasy. I would definitely recommend and use again.

    Awesome hassle free service. I was paid the price offered at the original enquiry stage without quibble or question. The collection truck came when they said it would, and the money was paid to me when they said it would be.

    Does what it says on the tin, and you can't ask any more than that.

    Sell The Car offered me the best price compared to competitors for my non running car.

    Excellent service - got a call the next day to arrange collection at my convenience.
    No problems on pick up and money was in my account within a couple of hours.
    Would recommend this company, especially for non runners like mine!

    “Superb Company”
    I thought I would struggle to sell my Rav4 2007 after the dreaded head gasket failure. But within 20 minutes of filling the only quote request, I received a quote that would allow me to put a deposit on a new car. A few days later the Rav4 was gone and I had dosh in the bank. I can say with all honesty that the service this company supplies is second to none. (fact)

    Such good a service, I was actually surprised.
    My Volvo V50 had done 187,000 miles and the engine suddenly seized up and was irreparable. I thought I would get about £150 for scrap, but did a google search for “we buy non-runner cars”. The website sellthecar.co.uk came up and I put my details in. It only took a few minutes.
    I stated I had a non-runner that had a seized engine. Recent MOT passed, 2 new tyres and new alternator. I received a text message within 5 minutes stating they would offer me £759.
    I accepted and they put me in touch with a company called Co-part which picked my car up from the mechanic’s garage 2 days later. I have them my V5 document (ownership doc) and a short examination of my car was undertaken (5 mins). Car was then taken away.
    Within 10mins I had a confirmatory phone call regarding my bank details and a payment was made directly to my account.
    I checked my account later that day and the money had been recieved.
    This was a remarkably good service, which I thoroughly recommend. I have since looked up the offers for my car if it had still been a “runner” and the best I found was £1600. Therefore £759 for a “non-runner” seemed a good price to me.
    By the way, the staff from “Sell The Car” were very helpful too.

     had previously sold a car to another online purchasing organisation and felt I got ripped off as the value quoted was nothing like what they were eventually willing to pay. I was therefore a bit apprehensive about using this company. However, I'm very pleased with the service I received. The value quoted was competitive and was what was paid with no argument or haggling. The money was transferred to my account before they drove off with my vehicle and the collection was on the date promised. Would use again and would recommend.

    Fantastic service.
    Once I got over the shock that my lovely car could not be economically repaired, I shopped around to get the best price for it.
    I came back to Lyndon, at Sell the Car, because he offered a good price, was professional and really pleasant.
    I'm glad I did. The whole process went completely as described. Plus I bought a replacement car based on Lyndon's advice. Thank you

    Surpassed my expectations.
    Were courteous, open and friendly. Explained the process and were transparent all the way.
    A little confusing when it came to the collection (used a different company), but they were ok too.
    Money took a bit longer than expected to reach my bank account (on the phone I was told it would be 'while the collection was ongoing', whereas in reality it was an hour or two later), but it was for the amount agreed with no issues.
    Would use again.

    Look no further when selling your broken car. Great service, money transferred as promised, very easy. Highly recommended.

    Excellent service. The staff, 'Jeff' in particular was very helpful and ensured the process of getting rid of my non-runner was quick, simple and hassle-free. And I got more £'s than I thought I would to be quite honest!

    Fantastic service. I wasn't present when the car was picked up but the driver waited and the money was transferred to my bank immediately before he left. Fair price for the car too. Would definitely recommend.

    My experience was very positive overall. I found the advisor (Jeff) to be very professionnal and I felt confident that the transaction would be straightforward.

    Arrangements were made to collect my car and documents, everything went smoothly and I received payment promptly on the same day.

    I would recommend this company.
