Cash for cars sites any good?

Hi guys,

I have a 2011 Saab 9-3 Vector Sport with 56k miles, 1.9 TTDi. I need to sell it as we only need one car in the family now and the Saab is only being used at the weekend. There are a few Irish websites offering to buy cars for cash. Do you know if they are any good? Should I expect a trade in price or less?

Any advice much appreciated.

Regards Rory.

Hi Rory,

Generally speaking, the places that offer to buy your car for cash will be offering a very much lower value than you might achieve selling the car yourself, or trading in with a dealer. That said, it is a route to a quick sale if you’re struggling to get shot of the car, but make sure that the firm you use is reputable.
