Sell your car in 3 simple steps
1. Tell carwow all about your car
Just upload some basic car details, a few photos of your car and, as if by magic, start receiving FREE car valuations from the comfort of your sofa. Plus, it only takes a couple of mins – we said it was easy.
2. Compare car offers from over 3,000 dealers
Carwow’s network of nationwide dealers will compete to buy your car in an auction. There’ll be no more faffing about trying to get rid of your old wheels, just a quick and blooming brilliant deal!
3. Easy payment, easy collection
Once the auction ends, your car will be sold to the winning dealer. They'll arrange a convenient time to collect your car and pay on collection day.
How much can I sell my car for?
Exactly how much you can sell your car for is determined by several factors.
The most obvious one is the model of your car. The price you get will largely depend on how valuable it is.
Another big factor is the car’s condition. The better the state of the car, the more it’s worth.
Aside from these, there are a few easy things you can do to maximise your car’s listing and get yourself the best deal.
Take good quality pics of your car
The photos you upload are an opportunity to really show your car off.
A car that’s got a few scrapes but is staged with pictures clearly showing the damage may get a dealer’s attention more than a car in perfect condition that’s been listed with some bad images.
Provide as much info as possible
Honesty is always the best policy!
Be sure to provide as much info (and receipts) as possible on your car’s service history as well. Strong service history shows your car has been given the TLC it needs, which can add lots of value!

Selling your car FAQs
Yes – carwow work with dealers exclusively, so they’ll be the only people viewing your car.
Once your car goes up for auction, there’s potentially over 3,000 dealers waiting to snap it up. This means you could end up with more than you expected due to the demand for used cars, ka-ching!
By submitting your car’s registration, you will be redirected to the carwow website.
ZenAuto does not own or control this site. If you decide to progress with quotes, compare offers and to sell your car, this will be managed directly between yourself and carwow.
We’re simply good friends with carwow (you may have seen their car reviews and ratings across our site) and share a love for making the world of cars easy for our customers.
How long have you got? The carwow way is simple, free, and fast.
Unlike a private listing, you don’t have to pay, don’t have to write an advert, and don’t have to make time for those awkward viewings. It’s a no brainer, seriously!
You just need to provide a few details, some pics of your car and then the carwow team will do the rest.
Your car will be submitted to carwow’s daily online auction – dealers will submit their bids by 3.30pm that day. The auctions are held between 8am and 3:30pm, Monday to Saturday.
If your reserve price is met or exceeded on the day, your car will be sold to the winning dealer. You’ll then move onto the collection and payment stage. And voilà, you’re done!
If your car isn’t sold on the first day, it’ll be advertised for another two days. So, there are plenty of opportunities for the dealers to make their best offers.
Absolutely! Unlike some other car selling sites, carwow won’t charge you to sell your old wheels.
If your car sells in one of the auctions, you won’t be charged a penny.
Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to tell the DVLA that you’ve sold the car and provide the details of the dealer. If you don’t, you might not get your full car tax refund – that would be a bummer, hey?
