Selling Your Car: How it Works

Selling Your Car: How it Works

Selling your car can be quite daunting, but with Bristol Street Motors, it’s never been easier and you’ll 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 payment is made and how we keep your data safe.

Read on to find out more.

How much will I get for my car?

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

One of our friendly experts will carry out an inspection on the vehicle, too, 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 will 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 further options.

When will payment be made?

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.

Once we are happy with the condition of the vehicle and if you decide you want to proceed with the price given, we will begin processing all the necessary paperwork straight away.

How long does it take for the money to clear?

Payment will be made via a BACS transfer and will take around 3-5 working days to arrive into your bank account.

Is the payment process safe?

When you choose to sell your car with Bristol Street Motors, you’re guaranteed the best service.

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