Here’s how we do it
1) To get an offer call 1300 722 809 or complete the web form above and an instant written offer will be sent to your email and SMS.
2) Once an offer is accepted, we come to you anywhere in Wollongong and surrounding districts to inspect and firm your offer.
3) We settle on-the-spot in cash EFT or bank cheque ( it’s up to you )
Here’s what we don’t do
Purposely provide inflated offers known as ‘bait’ valuations.
Sadly, this has become a common practice where competitors give a valuation which is never be achieved in order to secure an inspection and then offer you thousands less.
Here’s our guaranteed payment
We pay you in cash or clear funds before collecting your car.
Simply let us know how you want to be paid and we’ll do it!
We were first in Wollongong’s to offer an online cash for cars facility and have operated continuously since 1997. Rather than chest beating we think a better way of checking our credentials is to google carswanted.com.au/reviews.
We don’t offer retail prices rather a fair and reasonable trade valuation. Our service is tailored to sellers wanting a fair price without the hassles and risks associated with private sales.
We guarantee clear funds in your hand or at bank prior to collecting your car. This is unique to cars wanted.com.au and we don’t believe this is matched anywhere, let us know if you find similar and we will amend this paragraph.
Here’s more about what we don’t do
We don’t purposely provide inflated offers known as ‘bait’ valuations.
This is where competitors give a valuation which can never be achieved in order to secure an inspection and then offer you thousands less.
Its a shameful deceptive practice which is currently utilised by a number of franchised dealers and even one of Australia’s leading and publicly listed consignment auction groups.
The good news is many disappointed and subsequently, disgruntled sellers have shared their negative experiences on social media and public blogs.
Perhaps not good news for those affected but hopefully their public information will change our industry for the better.
Note: Always a good idea to google the URL for customer reviews, including us of course!
Here’s our promise to you
We will offer you the maximum we can in order to get your business.
Thats not to say that we won’t be beaten on every electronic valuation, however, it’s extremely rare that we are beaten on a physical valuation.
We provide a ‘real world’ indicative appraisal online or over the phone rather than a false promise.
We come to you and settle in clear funds and buy ‘ as is ‘ ‘ where is ‘ anywhere in Wollongong and surrounding districts.
Where we buy
Wollongong CBD and all suburbs, Port Kembla, Mt Bulli, Woonona, Russel Vale, Bellambi, Corrimal, Albion Rail, Dapto, Kiama, Nowra, Shell Harbour, Jervis Bay, Ulladulla, Bawley Point and everywhere else.
