More cars sold by fleeing Brits

Time 14 years ago


THERE are a number of different reasons customers choose to sell their current cars, but an online firm has found more and more people are selling because they’re moving abroad.


Car buying website has found up to 100 cars a week are being sold by Brits fleeing the UK. 


Tony Hinkley, director at, said: ‘Over the last year we have seen a significant rise in the number of people selling their vehicle to move abroad. They are often in a hurry to release the cash so they can put it towards funding their move.’

Advert is ideal for people who are busy organising a move overseas because it removes all the hassle from the selling process. It provides a speedy, secure and straightforward way to sell a car and offers competitive prices for any vehicle – of any age, make, model or condition – from £10 to over £100,000.


The service provides a free online valuation and an appointment can then be made to visit one of the 15 drop-off depots across the UK to complete the sale. Payment for the car is made by bank transfer directly into the customer’s bank account, clearing within three and four working days.


Ben Marks and his wife Linda from Clifton, Nottingham, recently used the service to sell their Vauxhall Corsa before emigrating to Spain.


Ben said: ‘We saw an opportunity to make a better life for ourselves in Spain.It wasn’t just the weather that attracted us but the quality of life and the lower cost of living. After making the choice it was a case of planning our escape as quickly as possible. Selling the car was a concern as we knew it could take weeks to find a buyer. 


‘ solved the problem for us and we were impressed with how quickly they offered us a valuation and appointment. In fact, we carried out the deal the same day.’
