How It Works

Valuation, inspection, payment and collection of your car.

We make it fast and simple to sell your car.

The Cars Wanted promise is to make your car selling experience as easy as possible. Here’s how it works in three simple steps:

1. Valuation – Find out what we’ll pay for your car

It only takes a few minutes to find out what we’ll pay for your car.  You can get an online appraisal via email or SMS by completing our web form24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  If you would prefer to phone us please call 1300 722 809 and our team will provide an over the phone valuation.

2. Book an inspection – We will come to you

We will come to you anywhere in Australia to inspect and confirm the amount we’ll pay for your car, obligation free. To book an inspection, simply call 1300 722 809 or by completing our web form.

3. Payment and collection – We pay with clear funds 

We always pay you before taking possession of the car. We can pay cash, EFT, wire transfer or bank cheque. It’s up to you.

We will collect your car the same day. For your convenience, we’ll come to you so you don’t have to worry about how you will get home.

Required documents – What you need to sell your car

You don't need a roadworthy certificate when selling to us because we are licensed motor dealers. At the point of sale, you will need to provide the vehicle’s registration certificate and your driver’s licence. If you don’t have access to these documents please give us a call to work out a solution.

Got finance owing? - We will buy your financed vehicle

Selling your car when you have a loan is very simple. The first step is to contact the company that set up your loan and request a payout figure in writing. Most will provide the current loan balance via email within a day or so.

We pay the entire amount owing directly to your financier and any remainder to you in cash or EFT, whichever you prefer.

If the loan balance is greater than your valuation, you will need to pay the difference (gap) at the point of sale.

Please note, we will request the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) or registration plate number for verification purposes prior to inspection.

Tell us about your vehicle by completing our simple web form to get an instant valuation for your car.

"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!"
