We physically go to the vehicle and appraise/take pictures of a private sellers car to accurately advertise it on our platform, meaning the dealers can confidently put in an accurate bid knowing there will be no nasty suprises upon collection.
Honest Cars provides a free selling platform for private sellers to local traders.
We used to solely buy and sell cars, and saw the market change during the pandemic from standard live car auctions to online platforms selling consumer cars directly to the trade.
These platforms do three main things wrong: They provide fake valuations to get as many cars onto their platform as possible. They provided fake reserve prices the seller does not want to accept to encourage the dealers to bid. They expect a private seller to professionally appraise a car with very little to no qualifying throughout their process.
This led to inaccurate bids with dealers needing to renegotiate the price on the day with the customer, forcing time to be wasted, haggling and negotiating. We believe we can fix for this!
Traders can bid on each car in a silent auction with the highest bidder winning the car
Once the highest bid has been established, the dealer will collect the car, and will pay the bid price before leaving with the vehicle
No need to worry about any time being taken up, or haggling over prices
Our aim is to improve and protect the used car buying eco system, as larger companies are exploiting this system for their own financial gains. Our goal is to provide sellers with the highest trade price possible, stop haggling and negotiating from being a necessity, and to not have anyone’s time wasted
