 A word from our founder

Our service sure ain’t rocket science. Simply, we do one thing and that’s to provide you with a genuine cash offer for your used car, 4×4 or commercial vehicle.

We come to you anywhere in Adelaide and rural South Australia to inspect and confirm your offer. Once confirmed we complete all necessary documentation and pay clear funds on the spot and prior to inspection.

Cars Wanted was the first cash for cars online facility in the world. With our beginnings in Melbourne, we have expanded over the past 20 years to offer our service nationally with the exception of the Northern Territory.

We are an association licensed dealers and as such all vehicles are purchased ‘as is where is’ meaning no preparation such as detailing, roadworthy’s or even registration is necessary. Our buying consultant will provide all relevant documents to facilitate.

So whether you’re in Brompton or Barossa, take the hassle out of selling your car and fill in our form to receive an obligation free offer at your email address and SMS.
