A little about us from our co-founder Warren

Cars Wanted about Car buying servicesMy name is Warren Johns and I’d like to tell you a little bit about Cars Wanted.  If you want a safe, easy and simple way to sell your vehicle we are here to help.

Experience & professionalism

Launched in 1997 we were the first licensed motor dealers to offer an online car buying service in Australia. We will talk you through the process of selling your car even if you have finance owing. Our promise is to make your car selling experience as simple as possible. We come to you at an agreed time and always pay with cleared funds before you hand us the keys.

Our valuations

Beware of offers that seem too good to be true. We always strive to offer a fair price for your car, based on the current market valuation. You will always sell your car for more money privately, however we take the stress and uncertainty out of the process.

To get a fast online valuation for your car tell us about your vehicle.

Why are we different from our competitors?

  1. We come to you.
  2. We do all the paperwork for you.
  3. We always pay you in cleared funds before you hand over the keys.

"I was sick and tired of throwing money at Primrose (that’s her name) and the price offered was fair enough. Great process, fast service and prompt payment. I will blog some very positive feedback on Google!"

"An overall fantastic selling experience. We were pretty skeptical about services like yours because of similar companies stuffing us around. Happy to say you guys were right on the money and we love the fact that you came to us. Really friendly, hassle free and straight forward. Two thumbs up from us!"

"Ton gave us an acceptable price and inspected the Mazda within the hour. Car is gone, money in the bank and its only 4 hours since I enquired. I would give you 9/10 for price and 10/10 for everything else!"

"I might have got a few more dollars privately but I’ve been down that time consuming path before and your service offered a hassle free solution and a fair price. Hats off to Ton and the team, I’ll be back!"
