Has ‘sell my car’ been lingering on your to-do list for a while? Motorway provides a service that allows you to get it ticked off quicker than you might have thought.
Selling a car can be a tedious and time-consuming task. The hassle and expense of advertising your car or van to local would-be buyers, and organising test drives, is off-putting, to say the least.
Here’s where Motorway comes in. It offers a fast, easy, and free service allowing car sellers to find a buyer on its platform, from over 5,000 verified dealers around the whole of the UK.
So no matter where you’re based, or where your buyer’s based, they’ll collect your car from your home or work – for free.
Read on for everything you need to know about selling a car on Motorway in Liverpool.
Liverpool, like Manchester, has opposed a CAZ (Clean Air Zone) due to the shortage and cost of new and used compliant vehicles. Liverpool City Council instead wants to focus on improving public transport networks and finding other ways to improve air quality. Read more on Let’s Clear the Air Liverpool.
The UK has grappled with the detrimental effects of air pollution for years. High levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulate matter (PM) from vehicle emissions have posed serious health risks and put the city’s air quality in the spotlight.
The gradual introduction of CAZs around the country signals the UK’s commitment to tackle this pressing issue head-on. With CAZs already in cities such as York, Bradford, Sheffield, and London, it’s not a surprise that Merseyside residents are beginning to sell up their diesel vehicles, which are more likely than petrol to be non-compliant with the regulations.
Liverpool residents with vans will no doubt be checking their compliance if they tend to visit cities such as Bradford or Sheffield, or cities further afield operating Clean Air Zones or Low Emission Zones.
There’s a daily charge of £9 and £10 respectively to drive non-compliant vehicles (i.e. non-Euro 6 standard diesel vans) within the CAZ boundaries in Bradford and Sheffield, for example. Though passenger cars are currently not subject to any charges, people may worry that it’s just a matter of time until their non-compliant cars drop in value due to further regulation.
The good news is, when you sell your car or van on Motorway, dealers all over the UK have the opportunity to purchase it. That means, even if you live in or near a Clean Air Zone or Low Emission Zone, you can find a buyer who will compete with their best price for your vehicle. You’re likely to get a much better price by selling your vehicle than by using a scrappage scheme, unless your car is significantly old or high in mileage.
How does Motorway work?
When you sell your car on Motorway, their network of more than 5,000 dealers, have the opportunity to compete to give you their best price. And, thanks to its quick car profiling process, you can have a sale agreed in as little as 24 hours.
To kick things off, all a car owner needs to do is enter their reg and mileage on Motorway’s website or in the app, and they’ll get an instant valuation for free. This will be based on live sales data for cars just like yours, so their estimate will be as accurate as possible.
If the car owner likes their price, they can profile their car in Motorway’s app, which is available to download on the App Store and Google Play Store. Users simply select answers to some questions about their car’s spec and condition, and then take some photos using their smartphone’s camera.
The car can then be entered into the online daily sale. Dealers will be shown the vehicle, and have the opportunity to bid their best price. The winning offer gets sent to the car owner at the end of the sale, and all they need to do to approve it is click the link in their email. Then it’s just a matter of choosing a date and time for them to come and collect the car – for free.
You’ll get the money straight into your bank account, and if your car or van is financed, the dealer will clear the remaining balance with your lender before paying you the surplus.
Popular car models sold on Motorway by sellers in Liverpool include the Ford Fiesta, Focus, and Kuga, and the Volkswagen Golf, with the favoured exterior colour being black.
Diesel sales in Liverpool are nearly as strong as petrol. This could signal that many Liverpudlian motorists are now opting for greener vehicles.
Track the value of your car
Car owners can also keep tabs on the value of their vehicles over time. This helps in making confident decisions on selling a car at the right time.
Motorway does this by using advanced data science techniques, where its Car Value Tracker uses historic data from thousands of similar cars that have sold through the Motorway platform, and hundreds of thousands of bids from dealers, to model each individual car’s valuation history.
Car owners are presented with an interactive graph showing their car’s value today and how it has depreciated – or appreciated – over the last year. If the car owner has valued their vehicle on Motorway in the past, those valuations are also included on the graph.
So, if you’re looking to sell your car or van in Liverpool, look no further than Motorway. Get started today with an instant, free valuation.
