How it works

Get a valuation

You can get your car valued online within 30 seconds, by entering your registration number. Then, all you need to do is ensure you inform us of any damage your car has so your account manager can take this into consideration and make your quote 100% accurate.

Independent vehicle check

Once you are ready to sell your vehicle, we will book you an appointment for inspection and collection, which is carried out by an impartial third party. The appointment can take place at your preferred location, whether this is at home or by your workplace. This is completely free of charge.

Instant bank transfer

To give you complete peace of mind, we will transfer you the payment for your vehicle immediately after the inspection is completed. The driver will wait for the payment to reach your bank before taking your car away.

Why sell your damaged car through Exchange My Car?

You save time

By partnering with multiple car buyers, we are able to secure the most competitive valuation for your vehicle. You also won’t need to wait for bids or viewings, we can help you sell in as little as 24 hours.

No hidden fees

By matching you with an already verified dealer who’s ready to purchase your vehicle for the price it has been valued at, you won’t need to set up any costly adverts or pay any fees. Our services are completely free of charge. However, to secure your appointment, we ask for a holding fee of £49.99, which is refunded to you on the same day, after the sale of your vehicle.

It’s hassle free

We allocate you a dedicated account manager to assist you throughout the entire process, from selecting the most suitable buyer, to organising your appointment, keeping you on the loop, and ensuring you get paid quickly. This way, you can have a seamless experience from the comfort of your home.

How to get an accurate valuation for your damaged car

At Exchange My Car, we want you to know exactly how much your car is worth from the offset, so that you can attend your appointment with the certainty that you will be paid what you have been quoted. Here's how you can do this:

We will ask you about any mechanical or cosmetic issues before booking your appointment.

We will connect with you on WhatsApp so you can send us photos of your vehicle and the damage (if applicable).

When sending photos of damage, it's always good to have an object next to it (eg. a coin, a pen, or a ruler) to give your account manager an idea of measurements.

Let your account manager know about the service history of your vehicle.
