How it works – The easiest way to sell your car for cash

Cars Wanted offers a “come to you” service and we can pay cash for your car before you hand us the keys.  There are four simple steps to selling your car. If you have any questions about selling your car to Cars Wanted, please call 1300 722 809.

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 form 24 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. Inspection – We’ll confirm the amount in person

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 – We pay cash or clear funds in your account before you hand us the keys

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.

4. Collection – We can take your car immediately 

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

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.

We will buy your financed vehicle

How it works when you have a loan on your vehicle 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 are available to discuss or review our bid or any aspects of your sale by phone, email or SMS. We will request the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) or registration plate number for security purposes prior to inspection.
