Trade offer: This refers to the amount of money a dealer or car buying service such as We Buy Any Car, Motorway or us is willing to pay you for your car. Typically, the trade offer is lower than the private sale price or retail value because dealers need to make a profit when reselling the car. However, a dealer may offer more than a typical trade offer if you're trading it in for another vehicle. A trade offer is generally a quick and easy way to sell a car, but you may not get as much money as you would through a private sale. 

Private sale price: This refers to the price you can expect to get for your car if you sell it to a private party. The private sale price is typically higher than the trade offer because you're selling directly to the buyer and cutting out the middleman. The private sale price can vary depending on the condition of the car, its age, mileage, and other factors. To determine a fair price, you can check similar cars' prices on online marketplaces or get a valuation from a car appraiser. While you may get more selling privately, selling a car privately can take a while, in fact Autotrader suggests that selling a car privately takes 25-45 days on average. It is also becoming a less popular choice as car values have increased thus making buying a car on finance a more common option, which is typically done with a dealer. 

Retail value: This refers to the price a dealership would charge a customer for your car if they were to sell it on their lot. The retail value is generally the highest of the three prices because dealerships need to make a profit. It's essential to keep in mind that the retail value is not the price you'll get if you sell your car to the dealer or a car buying service, but rather an indication of what the car is worth on the market.

We prefer accurate descriptions as it helps us to give you an accurate valuation over the phone and will save you time during our inspection. If you don’t make us aware of the true condition of the car, or if there’s anything you’ve missed, we will point out any relevant items and discuss revisions to our offer accordingly.

We will if you have provided an accurate description of the car. All final offers are subject to inspection.
