8. Terms regarding online valuation tool and car purchase

8.1 Valuation terms

You should note that any valuation you receive using the free online valuation tool is completely based on the inputs you share about your car and on some pre-set general assumptions about a vehicle. Please note that you get an option on the online valuation page to change the pre-set general assumptions. You can use that option to provide us with specific details about your vehicle or share any other additional information.

Also, note the online valuation you receive using the tool is not an offer made by us to purchase your vehicle. Rather, it is just an estimate of your vehicle's value and the amount we might be willing to pay. The final amount is decided only post-inspection of the vehicle in our workshops.

Here is a list of general assumptions that we make about your vehicle:

  • That the vehicle is not imported. This means the car is a right-hand drive model with UK registration plates.
  • The vehicle has over 6 months MOT if applicable.
  • That the car has not on any occasion used for rental services, private hire, as a police vehicle or for offering driving tuitions.
  • That the car is absolutely free from any major faults.
  • That the vehicle has no severe damage, whether interior or mechanical.
  • That the car has an engine that starts properly and can idle on its own.
  • That you have two sets of keys to your vehicle.

When we conduct the vehicle inspection at our workshop, we will verify each of these details stringently. Suppose during the inspection we find that any aspect or feature of the car affects its valuation, like its:

  • Service history,
  • General condition,
  • And other related issue, which was not apparent to us when we processed the online valuation. In that case, the price we will be willing to pay for the purchase will then differ from the one you received using our free online valuation tool.

Also, note we are absolutely not obliged to purchase any vehicle. Furthermore, we reserve the right to turn away any client from an appointment with us if they are selling their vehicle for commercial purposes. In the same way, neither of you are obliged to sell any car that you bring to an appointment with us for inspection.

8.2 Car purchase terms

Any car purchase that we make will be strictly bound by the following clauses:

i. Purchase contract

Any purchase between you and us will be bound by an agreement once both you and we agree to sign our standard written purchase contract based on terms & conditions given below.

Any negotiation between us prior to signing the contract will be considered inapplicable and will neither bind you or us.

If we purchase a car from individual sellers, we will be relying upon them for certain representation, which includes:

  • They are legally capable to enter into a contract binding required in selling a vehicle.
  • They must be at least 18 years old.
  • To the best of their knowledge they must be the sole legal owner of the car.
  • That other than any out-standing loan from some finance company the individual has already disclosed to us, no other individual has any claim to their car.
  • That the mileage reading on their car is absolutely accurate and that the odometer is not tampered in any way.
  • That they have disclosed all facts related to physical defects or any mechanical damages.
  • That their vehicle has an UK registration.
  • And they are not in any way, on their own behalf or for anyone else, selling the vehicle for any commercial purpose.

If we discover that any of these enlisted representations provided by you is inaccurate or false, we hold an absolute right to:

(a) Ask you to submit any document that we find important to verify the authenticity of the representations provided.

(b) Withdraw or decline any offer we made earlier to purchase the car.

ii. Price guarantee

Based on our physical inspection of the vehicle at our workshop, if we notice there are any changes in the estimate that you processed using our online valuation tool, we will take all endeavours to contact you to let you know the change in the value.

iii. Hand-over requirements

We will expect you to provide us with the following:

  • All the car key copies you have.
  • All the car registration documents along with adequate proof of purchase if we request for it.
  • Documents validating your car’s service history.
  • User manual (if any) and
  • All accessories such as locking wheel nuts, remote controls, etc.

In any event, if you fail to comply with the hand-over requirements mentioned in the section above, you agree that we have absolute right to withdraw, terminate or rescind any offer we made to buy the car with immediate effect.

iv. Our guarantee

We provide you with the guarantee that we are willing to buy every car model that we value. Therefore, to avoid wasting your time, if we find that there are changes in the current market value of your vehicle resulting in either a reduction or increase in its valuation, we will let you know the new valuation before your appointment with us so that you have an opportunity to cancel the transaction if you choose.

v. Payment options

We offer payment both in cash or through bank transfer. Please note all bank transfers are conveniently made via electronic transfers (BACS) to a UK bank, and it can take up to 4 days, depending upon the proceeding of your bank, for the money to get credited.

Also, note it is possible that your payment gets delayed due to certain events beyond our control. In such cases, we will not be liable to you for any such delays.
