Selling your car online can be a great way to get rid of your old motor. Unlike newspaper or magazine listings, by adding your car for sale on a popular website you greatly increase the amount of targetted people that will view your ad and hopefully make you an offer

If you'd prefer to not sell the car privately by yourself, there are also a number of popular car buying services in the UK. A popular company is We Buy Any Car who offer to (as the name suggests), purchase any UK registered vehicle. Their website will offer you an instant car valuation simply by entering your registration number and mileage, and enable you to book an appointment at one of their nationwide service centres.

Car buying services are often a quick and hassle free way of selling your car, but it is worth noting that in some cases you will get slightly more money if you opt to sell privately.
