Why use us?

'Sale or Return' is an increasingly popular way to sell your car. It's an agreement where you commission us to sell your vehicle as your agent, in precisely the same way you commission an estate agent to sell your house.

We sell vehicles professionally, full-time. So, we're well placed to maximise the potential of your vehicle. Invariably the return you receive for your vehicle is higher than its cash value. You also save a lot of time and expense as we take all the hassle out of selling your vehicle. We prepare it for sale, advertise it and deal with all potential buyers, tyre-kickers, canvassers and time-wasters. We even deal with any awkward haggling or unreasonable requests. As a professional motor dealer, we are also in a position to offer potential buyers options that you can't, such as part exchange.

To find out if your vehicle qualifies for Sale or Return, please send us the details of your car and we will contact you with a view to making an appointment to meet with you.

How does it work?

Firstly, and most importantly, your vehicle will be in safe hands. It will be covered at all times by our Comprehensive Motor Trade Insurance and the key points of the Sale or Return process are...

  • You contact us with the details of your vehicle.

  • A meeting is arranged to allow us to appraise your vehicle's overall condition and we will conditionally accept your vehicle for Sale or Return providing it meets the necessary standards of Skywood Cars™.

  • We then take your vehicle away and carry out a full PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection) in our workshop. Using our expertise and experience, we will calculate the retail value of your vehicle, minus any vehicle preparation costs. We then deduct from this an allowance for advertising and our fee for selling the vehicle which is typically set at 10% of vehicle selling price subject to a minimum of £200. We then supply you with a full breakdown of our costing which we use to generate a figure of how much you are likely to receive once your vehicle is sold.

  • A period of 1-12 weeks is required to sell your vehicle with most vehicles selling within 4 weeks.

  • When your vehicle is sold, we will notify you of the amount you will be receiving and when this will be paid to you.
