About Us

The 'We Buy Cars' website has been established for over 10 years making it one of the oldest websites for people looking to sell a used car online.

The original website was set up for the purpose of buying used car stock for our showrooms in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. This was ideal for members of the public who are looking to sell their car to a trustworthy buyer from the auto trade.

As time went on, the website became more established and we started receiving a lot of enquiries from members of the public from all across the UK. The website has served us well for many years and we have bought cars off a lot of happy sellers. However, the ever increasing price of fuel and travel, combined with the decreasing price of cars during the credit crunch means that it is not always financially viable to buy cars from all over the UK. Therefore, we found that a lot of people who were using our website to try and sell a perfectly good car were missing out on receiving an offer from us because they lived too far away.

In 2012 we have launched a new version of the 'We Buy Cars' website. We have now opened the doors of our website to other professional car buyers from across the UK. We believe this is a win-win situation for both sellers and buyers of used cars. We now have a database of hundreds of professional car buyers from across the UK. We can help sellers find a buyer for their car within their local area. A local buyer will always offer a seller more for their car than a buyer that has to travel 100 miles to view and collect the car.

We also have buyers that are looking for specific makes and models and are prepared to travel in order to buy just the right type of car for their showrooms. We like to think of our new website as a dating agency for sellers and buyers of used cars. We will help you find the perfect match!
