WE WILL MAKE THE FOLLOWING ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT YOUR CAR:
The assumptions we have made assume that your car is in above average condition for its age and mileage. We are assuming that there are no major mechanical faults or damage to the car. Any items considered above and beyond fair wear and tear should be disclosed by you in the owner comments sections of the online appraisal form.
We appreciate that not all of our customers are experts in appraising the condition of their car. Before any funds are transferred the purchasing dealer reserves the right to carry out an on-site appraisal of your car. If they consider that your cars value may be affected by any aspect of its history or condition, including any unusual features or customisation, which were not disclosed in the relevant sections of the online appraisal form, the final price offered may differ from the original valuation.
The service we provide is free of charge. No transaction fees, introduction fees or any other associated fees will be charged to our customers on completion of the agreed purchase contact.
Upon inspection and subject to there being no discrepancies between your cars condition and your online appraisal the purchasing dealer will arrange payment via online secure funds direct into your bank account. No car will leave the custody of the seller until the purchasing dealers payment has cleared in full.
VALUATIONS (WRITTEN / VERBAL):
Any valuation received via e-mail, phone or SMS message (Written or Verbal) is a valuation based upon what you tell us about your car. Discrepancies between the information submitted by you via the online appraisal form and the physical condition / history of your car may affect the valuation.
Upon inspection should the purchasing dealer consider that the value of your car is affected by any aspect of its history or condition including any unusual features or customisation which were not disclosed in the relevant sections of the online appraisal form, the final price offered may differ from the original valuation.
Once the purchasing dealer has carried out their appraisal of your vehicle the agreed purchase price will be paid in full via online secure funds direct into your bank account.
Any agreement to buy your car may only be accepted by you, and a contract will only be made between you and the purchasing dealer upon receipt of a purchase contract with ourselves. The contract will be subject to these terms and conditions and will not contain any other standard terms or conditions.
The purchasing contract forms a legally binding agreement between you, the seller and the purchasing dealer. Termination of the purchase contract by you, the seller will result in a customer cancellation fee of £125.
Upon completion of the purchase contract the following items will be required by the purchasing dealer:
Please remove any personal possessions from the car prior to collection
RIGHT TO WITHDRAW:
In the event that you are unable to supply the items listed in section 4.3 the purchasing dealer reserves the right to withdraw any offer to buy the car, and/or to rescind any contract with immediate effect.
Once you have handed over the car in accordance with section 4.3, the purchasing dealer will pay the agreed price in full via online secure funds direct into your bank account.
The standard method of payment is secure online CHAPS bank transfer. We would expect CHAPS payments to clear instantly but it is possible that events beyond our control may delay payment.
All cars will remain the property of the seller until the agreed purchase price has been paid. No car will leave the custody of the seller until the purchasing dealers payment has cleared in full.
