Why choose Sell Your Car 2 Jack?


When selling a car everyone always tries to knock the price down. Whether its a complex part exchange deal, private buyers kicking the tyres and finding reasons not to buy your car or maybe just that you need the money and need it fast. When you sell life is much simpler.

How is my valuation calculated?

Valuations are calculated using the most up-to-date software and market evaluation systems. We base our valuations on current market place trends which are updated every month depending on the previous months figures. Together with that and the fact our valuers have many years experience in buying and selling cars you will get a true up to date and accurate valuation. All cars are individually valued, which is the reason why we do not give you an automated response like other websites. Instead, we take the time to research and get the best possible price for you within 24 hours.

Why is my value subject to inspection?

Our valuers need to ensure that the online description matches the actual details and condition of the car. The guide price provided on this website does not constitute a contract. The details, condition and exact specification must be confirmed before we offer to purchase your car. We may find your car is actually worth more than we've offered online, or may find it's worth less - therefore it's important to be as accurate as possible on submission of the online process.

Why do you need my email address and phone number?

We are different to other car buying companies in that we do not offer an automated valuation on submission of your details online. Therefore we require your email address and telephone number to contact you to inform you of the valuation of your vehicle. You can select how you wish to be contacted on stage 4 of the process.

How much does a collection cost?

We may be able to offer a nationwide collection of your vehicle, however as we offer the best money possible on every vehicle there may be a cost incurred in sending a driver, fuel both ways and insurance. We ask for a contribution towards the cost from our Head office in Solihull B927JE. We look at every collection on a case by case basis with a cost of £1.25 per mile and provide a price from our head office in B92 0DP.

My car has a private registration, will you buy it?

Yes, you will need to fill out a V317 application to transfer or retain a vehicle registration number. This form can be downloaded from the DVLA website or collected from any Post Office. The completed form and appropriate fee should be sent to DVLA, Swansea, SA99 1AR. We can still buy your car whilst this process is taking place.

My car is an insurance write-off, will you buy it?

Yes. We keep our process to submit your details very simple so don't actually ask for this information in the early stages of submitting your details. Please inform us via phone call or email so that we can give you an accurate price.

What happens if I have outstanding finance on my car?

We will settle any outstanding finance on your vehicle as part of the transaction. Due to "Data Protection" laws you will have to obtain your settlement figure in writing on our behalf. If you prefer to settle the finance yourself we will need written confirmation of payment from your finance company prior to us paying for your car. If you owe more on your finance than the sale price we have offered, you will need to pay us the shortfall by debit card when we purchase your car.

Where do I drop my car off?

You will need to drop the car at our registered office in Solihull, Birmingham only 5 minutes off J5 M42. Alternatively, you can make an appointment at our offices at the Kingfisher Shopping Centre, Redditch or Ankerside Shopping Centre, Tamworth - whichever is most convenient for you. If you need the car collecting this can be arranged for certain vehicles but may incur a cost depending on location.
