“Listen to the reviews!!!”

Written on: 08/05/2014 by DejaGlass350 (1 review written)

Quoted £17700, rang up to book in and was told over the phone the price is now £16500 due to issues with the website over quoting cars. Please do not go down without along up before and getting a form price to stop a wasted journey. This company is obviously set up to take advantage of people in a desperate rush to sell their car. … Read Full Review

“Outstanding Service , no hassle and great price”

Written on: 27/07/2013 by Mattline79 (1 review written)

This was such a great experience. John Walsh at Wimbledon was friendly, helpful and made the process very easy. I was only there for 20 minutes and my car finance was paid off while I waited. I was offered much more money than 'webuyanycar' and was given the money that was promised online. I was sceptical and prepared to have to negotiate , but I needn't have worried. I will definitely use this company again should I need to… Read Full Review

“Easy process, decided to do the deal. ”

Written on: 03/07/2013

Sold my car to a chap at the Irlam branch,very surprising, My car was quite clean and he only pulled me on 2 kerbed wheels which I couldn't really argue with, also let me off on some light stone chips on the bonnet because of the cars age. overall I was happy as there were a few other bits he didn't pick up on. If you looking for an easy sale then consider these guys… Read Full Review

“No hassle, very pleased with service”

Written on: 05/05/2013 by gt9971a (1 review written)

It was a very easy process and wish I had taken advantage of it earlier. After a few weeks of trying to sell the car myself, I went to this website and found they offered a very reasonable price for the car. I decided to try it out and I was very pleased. John Walsh was very professional and straightforward, no gimmicks (process took about 15 mins and money was in account in 2 hours). I would highly recommend to anyone!… Read Full Review

“friendly staff”

took my saab into the enfield branch today, my saab is in very condition and the man that dealt with me said it was a nice car but unfortunately when we were on the test drive and unknown to me the back window had stopped working (a bit embarrassing, as its winter i hadn't used them for months maybe should have checked all electric windows before i went) as a result of this we could not get to the lowest figure i was prepared to take for my car although we was very close. what i realized… Read Full Review

“They turned away my car...”

Written on: 24/01/2013 by simonliu79 (1 review written)

For a site that claims they buy any car..... well I got turned away today with a Mercedes SLK which I drove there. No it was not falling apart, in fact I don't even really understand. Anyway, make if it what you will, but to me it's just another company that does not deliver on it's most basic premise. This was at the Wimbledon branch where apparently the franchise owner is based. He is strangely aloof and not what I'd call friendly. All in all, a strange experience and basically a waste of… Read Full Review

“AVOID”

Written on: 05/08/2012

OK, I am fully aware that this business is in business to make a profit and fully understand that I will not get "book value" for my car. After reading some reviews I half expected what was going to happen, but the means that they went to only spell one thing to me....trade in desperation and dodgy as hell representing the worst aspects of the motor industry. The car was a six year old Porsche Boxster which had been looked after very well, done 51,000 miles. Of course I look at my car… Read Full Review

“yet another order without any hitch ”

Written on: 27/07/2012 by Tania.chaidezgj (1 review written)

I sold my card through TMM knowing full well that I wouldn’t necessarily get the best price however it saved the hassle of advertising and then waiting around for the inevitable tire-kickers to arrive and try to beat you down on price. The price I received was slightly lower than originally given on-line however I was fine with that as I probably was a little sketchy with the detail of some bodywork damage. John Hudson who met us there was courteous, friendly and really pleasant to deal… Read Full Review

“Farsical”

Written on: 05/06/2012 by Boerbo (1 review written)

I was quoted a reasonable price on their website and booked an appointment. The car has only one small scratch. We drove with two cars for 1 hour 45 to get there only to be informed that that the price now is 1500 pounds less than quoted on the website. John at south London said it was not his fault and that the website overestimates low mileage cars. I think they are fly by night… Read Full Review

Boerbo's Response to Boerbo's Review

Written on: 09/06/2012

John came back to us and offered us a higher price and we accepted even though lower than the initial. There seems to be a blip on their website and John said they would look into it. To settle he offered us what he again sold the car for, thus not making money. Altruism or market reviews? I'll give him the benefit of the doubt!

“No one there for arrange appointment Manchester...”

Written on: 05/04/2012

After finally deciding to use trade my motor to sell my car I rang up the Manchester branch to arrange an appointment (the website was playing up), they said they would call me back to confirm times (I asked for a Saturday), after a few days I rang them having not received a phone call and we then agreed to to a time on the coming Saturday. I turned up at the address 15 minutes early to find the place all locked up, I sat outside for 45 minutes none stop ringing both the land line and the… Read Full Review

“Sale of VW Passat to TradeMyMotoe.co.uk Manchester...”

Written on: 27/01/2012 by MarkFoster (1 review written)

After a very pleasant phone conversation with a Member of Trade My Motor in Manchester, I was advised on how to fill out the online request with help in detail. Once completed I was given an appointment location, date and time to take my car. I arrived slightly late however the friendly staff were still more than happy and assured me that it wasn't a problem. My vehicle was given an in depth check whilst I relaxed and waited with a coffee provided by a member of the sales team. The guy… Read Full Review

“Simple sale quickly done..”

Written on: 22/01/2012

I recently took my 2001 Volvo xc 90 into the Wimbledon branch of Trademymotor.co.uk after initially getting an online offer I booked the car in. In the meantime I made telephone contact with the purchaser just to get the run down.. The chap basically told me what I kind of already had in mind as long as the details I entered were 100% there would be no problem..I then proceeded to attend the appointment, The purchaser noted 2 kerb wheels and a dent in the body work and made an adjustment of… Read Full Review

“Annoyingly bad!”

Written on: 30/08/2011

Drove to their site at Wimbledon having received a 'good' offer for my vehicle. I know my vehicle had a little damage so was not expecting the full amount! Firstly, the guy was attempting to be clever by telling me that a kwikfit full-service schedule was merely a checklist and not proof of serving, despite many points on the documents very clearly and objectively saying otherwise. Attempting to stay on the point, the guy would not let me talk. He was quite arrogant and would not let me talk… Read Full Review

Trade My Motor, Wimbledon,
Re: above comments, customer brought his car in to me to sell it, it was described as very good condition and having full service history which it clearly does not have, VW service intervals are as follows, every two years or 18,000 miles which ever comes first. customers car was serviced in 2006 at 32,000 miles and next service at 52,000 which clearly has not been serviced as VW recommends, then Kwiikfit vehicle check lists with no service invoices until 2011, exterior condition, vehicle has had a front end light accident, large dent rear right door, deep scratches to front bumper, rear bumper, nsr wheel arch, osr door, broken brackets holding front light in place and 3 curbed alloys. CLEARLY HIS CAR is not as described, I have purchased many cars from very happy customers and I know we pay a lot more good quality vehicles then some of our opposition.
Regards, John Walsh, Trademymotor South West London.

“Overall Im Pleased”

Written on: 09/08/2011 by NeilDunmore (1 review written)

After reading the reviews on here I was somewhat skeptical about using these guy but I need to sell and do it quickly. I had a 10 plate VW golf and did some shopping around. When I put the car on trademymotor.co.uk I didn't get an instant quote and was later contacted by a rep from there branch in Manchester I was told they were going to do some work on getting me the best price. Later that day a chap called me back with an offer it was close to what I was looking for so i agreed to have an… Read Full Review

“Awful, terrible, misleading, shoddy, unprofessional,...”

Written on: 16/05/2011 by monkeyboy129 (3 reviews written)

Awful, terrible, misleading, shoddy, unprofessional, shonky, rip-off etc etc

From start to finish there was nothing but trouble with these guys - my details for the "quote" did not go through to the correct place.
When I did my "quote" over the phone they gave misleading quotes and then only at then told me that the price for my non-runner would be pretty much the same if it was working okay and we all know that is not going to be the case.
Were quite happy for me to turn up without me knowing… Read Full Review

Given One star and only because this website doesnt give the option of zero. Terrible terrible service!

Got completely ripped off. After getting an offer of £800 even though I clearly stated it was a non runner and should be considered for parts, i spent money towing the car to this completely inappropriate place in Westminster only to be met by a horrible man with little to no knowledge of cars make up some random stuff about the car whilst tutting and shaking his silly little head. Then… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/08/2011

Not being funny but if you car is a non runner and beyond repair £200.00 sounds like a result and if you thought your car was worth more why did you sell it to them.? some people are thick....i'm not sticking up for these type of companies but a non runner cant be worth much in the first place.

“Really happy with the sale of my car from the Leeds...”

Written on: 15/04/2011

Really happy with the sale of my car from the Leeds office.

Unlike some others on here, I do realise that these companies do have to make money some how. They were the highest bid by £280, and although I had a chip on my window screen and 2 damaged alloys, I was happy to take £100 less then what I was quoted for my Audi.

I was sceptical about the money transfer and how it worked, however that arrived the same day.

Would recommend as the adjustments only reflected what I didn't… Read Full Review
