There’s no greater luxury than time, and it’s something Motorway knows very well, which is why this innovative car-selling site has created a completely new and totally effortless way to sell your car.

Founded in 2017, Motorway is committed to making the car market an easier, more transparent, and overall fairer place. That means it’s not just you, the car seller, who walks away with a great deal, it’s the dealer, too.

With Motorway, owners of high-quality cars like yourself get to place your vehicle in front of 3,000 plus dealers who are always on the lookout for prestige stock. All it takes is a few taps on your phone and you could have secured a sale in less than 24 hours. Motorway says it’s a win-win for everyone.

A nationwide network

Motorway works with verified dealers up and down the country, with over 3,000 of them frequenting their sales platform. That’s an awful lot of eyes to have on your vehicle, and a great way of maximising your chances of finding a serious buyer and a great deal. This network of reputable dealers have a wealth of knowledge about buying prestige cars – in 2021 alone they purchased thousands of cars worth over £30,000.

By creating an all-in-one solution for both sellers and dealers, Motorway hopes to do away with the old way of car selling. A way that was full of stress and strained conversations, negotiations, haggling, and worries about payment and collection. All of that has been transformed through Motorway’s innovative platform, where all you have to do is simply create a car profile and then let dealers compete to buy your car – it’s dealer against dealer, not against you. Motorway says it’s a better way, a revolutionary way, they’re calling it the Motorway way.

Selling your luxury car the Motorway way

Selling your car with Motorway is completely online, all you need is your phone, and you could have your car profiled in a matter of minutes. Here’s how to get started.

Get an instant, free car valuation

Motorway’s innovative use of technology and data starts right at the first step. Their valuations are based on the data from their own market platform as well as wider industry trends. The price you are quoted will be based on your reg and mileage and how cars just like yours are currently selling. Because it’s all rooted in data, Motorway’s valuations are also accurate to the date of your request. If you like what you see, it’s best to sell sooner rather than later – the car market is always changing and your valuation price could be very different in a month’s time.

Make a car profile

You can do this right from your phone. You’ll need to take photos of your car both inside and out, as well as of any damage that it may have. Don’t be afraid to share proof of damage with dealers – they’re experienced in selling used cars, and they won’t be put off if there’s a little scratch here or there. Motorway’s sleek interface guides you through all the key questions you need to answer, there’s no need to create a long-winded biography of your car, or deal with endless Q&As with would-be buyers.

Your car is placed in a sale

Motorway will place your car in one of their daily sales and alert their dealers. All you have to do is sit back and wait. Dealers can view your car and make their best offer. You don’t have to deal with haggling or negotiations – if a dealer wants your car, they have to make an offer on it, and other dealers do the same. The result is dealers competing against each other’s bids to win your car – no risk of you losing out by being negotiated out of a price. When the sale is over, Motorway will present you with the highest offer your car received. If you approve, you can arrange for car collection, if you don’t, that’s also fine. There is never any pressure to sell with Motorway, you can walk away at any stage.

Your car is collected for free from your home

Unlike other car-selling sites that require you to drive your car to a drop-off point and then make your own way home, Motorway has your car collected right from your doorstep, for free. Collection is made at a time that suits you, and once the dealer has inspected your car, they’ll pay you by secure bank transfer. Most payments arrive in the seller’s account within 24 hours.

And that’s all there is to it! Ready to sell your car? Sell the Motorway way.
