They are actually a very successful business. In car retails terms our cars, in comon with the majority of cars of the same age, only have scrap value. An owner therefore has a choice - scrap it directly for around £300 to £330 or via WeBuyAnyCar which will incur additional costs/fees.

Not good news for our members on the forum trying to sell there cars you should see the prices they want, but when a cars for sale it is worth what anyone is prepared to pay for it.

One of my customers was offered £820 for her tidy Citroen C4 Picasso on a 59 plate.
She was happy and someone got a nice car.
It seems to work for everyday vehicles. Rare, specialist or defunct manufacturers donít seem to be on their business plan which is understandable.

thats their standard amount for any old car over a certain Age that they are not interested in.


I got offered that for my immaculate ZT 260 :duh:

But they have offered above average for our Micra Acenta :shrug:

Hi Graham.
Personally i would pay he £10 subs and sell it on here, you will most certainly get more than what they are going to give you, and you have a good audience to punt it too ;)

Used to work with someone a while back who has worked for them, they were told to find absolutely anything to lower the price, slightest dents, scratches and the like knowing some people are sadly in a position where they need to sell their car.


As for the "we will offer more than px" bit, absolutely tosh

Is that not standard and expected practice everywhere when effecting a car transaction?

I've heard people on here advise others on tactics to use when going to view a car. It is what people do in order to pay the minimum!

This particular company's business model works for many people and not for others. The seller has a choice as to whether to use them or not. The same as whether you do your shopping at ASDA, Tesco etc.

Re wbac
 
Whatever car they purchase goes straight to BCA car auction and makes more money. If itís a late model car itís sold through sinch that other money making outfit. BCA own both.

MSS 16th September 2021 21:39

I am genuinely interested. How much would a 16 year old Rover 75 with nearly 100k miles on the clock make at BCA?
