In order to provide an online valuation, you will need to provide us with information regarding your vehicle. This information will be sent directly to our valuation team. One of our team will contact you either by telephone or email to give you our best possible price for your car based on the information you have provided. This figure is a value that we provide but do not agree until we have inspected the car. We will always need to carry out an inspection of your vehicle in order to purchase the vehicle. The inspection may be carried out at our registered premises or at our discretion we may inspect the vehicle at your chosen location.
Any information that you have provided on our website will be used by a Premium Car Buying Service representative during the inspection process. If during the inspection process we believe the valuation of the vehicle is incorrect due to any aspect of the vehicle's condition or history including any modifications or unusual features, which were not clear during the online valuation process, the price offered for the vehicle may differ from the online valuation.
The online valuation will be considered incorrect if the mileage information provided by you has increased by more than 100 miles from the date Premium Car Buying Service provided the valuation to the date a representative view the vehicle. At the end of the inspection you will be provided with a Final Price in writing at which Premium Car Buying Service may purchase your vehicle.
We guarantee we are willing to buy every car we value. So that we don’t waste your time, if there is a change in the market value of your car resulting in a reduced valuation, then we endeavour to let you know what the new valuation is at least 24 hours before your appointment, so that you have the opportunity to cancel, if you choose to do so.
The prices you are given when you get your online valuation is valid for 24 hours. If you sell your car within 24 hours of your valuation, and your car is in the condition that you say it is, we guarantee we'll pay the price that we've quoted your online.
If your appointment is outside of the 24-hour price guarantee period a new valuation for your vehicle will be required on-site.
If we buy a vehicle from you, we will rely upon the representation that:
- You are legally capable of entering into a contract to sell your vehicle
- You are at least 18 years of age
- To the best of your knowledge, information and belief, you are the sole owner of the vehicle;
- No person has any claim to the vehicle including for the avoidance of doubt by any finance company
- The vehicle has never been involved in any accidents (unless stated)
- The mileage on the vehicle is true and accurate and the odometer has not been tampered with
- You have disclosed to us all the matters which a purchaser would want to know about such as physical defects in the vehicle
- All information supplied by you in respect of the car (whether in obtaining an online valuation, at any appointment or otherwise) is true and accurate in all respects and the car is registered in the UK
- If we decide to buy the vehicle from you, you will be asked to sign a letter expressly confirming the aforementioned warranties.

If we agree to buy your vehicle we will pay and transfer your funds via bank transfer to your bank account. The bank transfer will take place the same day and we will not charge you any fee for a same day bank transfer. Payments are usually instant bank transfer and should take no longer than 10 minutes to process (Some bank accounts and building societies do not accept fast payments; therefore, could take up to 24 hours). It is possible that events beyond our control may delay payment and if that happens, we will not have any liability for the delay.
Payment will only be made to you using the payment information/bank account details you provide us following your acceptance of the Final Valuation. Without prejudice, we will only make any payments to a third party at our discretion where we are satisfied that we have been provided with sufficient confirmation/proof that you are the legal owner of the Vehicle.
If the vehicle is subject to some form of finance, we will require in writing a copy of the settlement figure and we will pay the finance company the settlement figure directly and pay you the balance of such payment directly into your bank account. In the event that the settlement figure owed to the finance company is higher than the purchase price then we will require you to pay to us the difference between the purchase price and the settlement figure before we pay the outstanding finance.
You will remain fully liable to the finance company at all times until the credit agreement in place has been brought to an end.
