The minimum Online Valuation is £50.00.
An Online Valuation is not our offer to purchase the vehicle. The Online Valuation is a tool that provides an estimated value for your car, the price we may be willing to pay for it subject to a vehicle inspection. We always physically inspection of the Car before we agree to buy it. Once you have received an Online Valuation, you may book an appointment with us for an inspection. We always physically inspection of the Car before we agree to buy it.
If, on inspection of the vehicle at the Appointment, we consider that the value of the Car is affected by any aspect of its history or condition, including any unusual feature or customisation or anything which affects/ limits the assumptions we have made about the vehicle, the price that we may be willing to pay for it is likely to differ from the Online Valuation.
We are not obliged to purchase any vehicle that we provide an Online Valuation for or inspect (in particular we reserve the right to turn you away from an Appointment if you are selling the Car for commercial purposes, e.g. in the course of a motor trade business). You are not obliged to sell any car that we inspect.
The Online Valuation is guaranteed for seven days from its date of issue, subject to the inspection detailed above.
We guarantee that we are willing to buy every car we value. If there is a significant price change within the 7 day guarantee period, we will use reasonable endeavours to contact you to let you know that the Online Valuation has changed. We also endeavour to let you know what the new valuation is at least 24 hours before our inspection, so that you have the opportunity to cancel, should you choose to do so.
Only once the standard written purchase contract has been signed will there be a binding agreement to purchase the vehicle. Additional terms and conditions apply to the contract.
The following requirements apply during hand-over of the vehicle:
• All personal possessions must be removed from the vehicle. We do not accept responsibility for any personal possessions left in the vehicle once it has been handed over to us.
• At the time of making the Contract, we will expect you to hand-over the following:
• the vehicle's registration document (together with appropriate proof of purchase if requested by us)
• the vehicle's service history (if any)
• the vehicle's MOT certificate (if any)
• the vehicle's user manuals (if any)
• all copies of the vehicle's keys
• any relevant accessories including locking wheel nut, radio fascia and/or remote controls
In the event that you fail to comply with these hand-over requirements, you agree that we have the right to withdraw any offer to buy the Car with immediate effect, to rescind or terminate any Contract with immediate effect, and/or to indicate a revised Price at which we will be prepared to purchase the Car. If we elect to rescind the Contract, we will return the Car to you, and you will refund the Price to us.

Contractual limitations and exclusions of liability are regulated and controlled by law, and the courts may rule that particular limitations and exclusions of liability in contracts are unenforceable. The courts are particularly likely to intervene where a party is seeking to rely on a limitation or exclusion of liability in its standard terms and conditions, but will also sometimes intervene where a term has been individually negotiated. The courts may be more likely to rule that provisions excluding liability, as opposed to those merely limiting liability, are unenforceable. If there is a risk that any particular limitation or exclusion of liability will be found to be unenforceable by the courts, that provision should be drafted as an independent term, and be numbered separately from the other provisions. It may improve the chances of a limitation or exclusion of liability being found to be enforceable if the party seeking to rely upon it specifically drew it to the attention of the other party before the contract was entered into. Exclusions and limitations of liability in UK contracts are primarily regulated by the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 ("UCTA"). Contracts regulated by UCTA cannot exclude or restrict a party's liability for death or personal injury resulting from negligence (Section 2(1), UCTA). Except insofar as the relevant term satisfies the requirements of reasonableness, such contracts cannot exclude or restrict liability: (i) for negligence (which includes a breach of an express or implied contractual obligation to take reasonable care or exercise reasonable skill) (Section 2(2), UCTA); or (ii) for misrepresentation (Section 3, Misrepresentation Act 1967). In addition, if a contract is regulated by UCTA, and one of the parties is dealing on the other's written standard terms of business, then except insofar as the relevant contractual term satisfies the requirements of reasonableness the other party cannot: (i) exclude or restrict his liability in respect of a breach of contract; or (ii) claim to be entitled to render a contractual performance substantially different from that which was reasonably expected of him; or (iii) claim to be entitled, in respect of the whole or any part of his contractual obligation, to render no contractual performance at all (see Section 3, UCTA). UCTA includes various other restrictions, particularly in the case of contracts for the sale of goods and contracts under which possession or ownership of goods passes. If you wish to try to limit/exclude for liability in respect of reckless, deliberate, personal and/or repudiatory breaches of contract, you should specify this in relation to the relevant provision (for example, using the following wording: "The limitations and exclusions of liability in this Clause [number] will apply whether or not the liability in question arises out of any reckless, deliberate, personal and/or repudiatory conduct or breach of contract"). In many circumstances, however, the courts will find these types of limitations and exclusions to be unenforceable. Somewhat different rules apply to limitations of liability in contracts with consumers, and these provisions should not be used in relation to such contracts. These guidance notes provide a very incomplete and basic overview of a complex subject. Accordingly, you should take legal advice if you may wish to rely upon a limitation or exclusion of liability.
