How it works selling your car with outstanding finance

Step 1:
Find out how much you still owe - you can get your settlement amount from your lender.
Step 2: Choose your perfect bravoauto car - apply for your car finance online.
Step 3: Get an instant valuation - We take into account your settlement amount.
Step 4: Send us your settlement letter - This has to be complete before you receive your car.

However, if you simply just want to sell to us then the process is still very simple, as we take all the hassle out of it for our customers. All we need is a settlement letter which will provide us with all the details of the finance company and any funds outstanding. Once the purchase price has been agreed, we can then raise a payment to your finance company to clear any remaining debt, and the additional funds will be sent directly to you.

This will depend on your vehicle’s overall condition, mileage and maintenance history. By entering in some of these details, the valuation tool will provide you with a more accurate guideline price, based on what you tell us. Our friendly team at your local bravoauto centre will then check everything over and can provide you with the final offer price having seen the vehicle.

We have over 100 years of experience in buying and selling quality cars. With our expertise and knowledge, we are confident that we can provide our customers with excellent service and a fair and competitive price for their car. 

Plus, our valuation prices are not linked to the purchase of another vehicle from us, which means are valuations are accurate and fair. However, if you would instead be interested in part-exchanging your old vehicle then we can help find the right car for you.

No. When you sell your car to us, you will not incur any transaction or administration fees.
The DVLA will automatically refund any remaining period of road tax. You'll need to either cancel your insurance policy directly once you have sold the car or change your details with your insurance provider to a new car if you are replacing it. 
It is worth giving your car a wash inside and out so that our teams can give your car a final check over before arranging payment. Whilst doing this you can check your car for any personal items you may have left behind in the car and remove these before handing over. If your car has satellite navigation or the ability to store personal information go into your car's settings and click to remove or ask a member of the team to help you do this.  

Make sure you bring with you: 
  • The V5C document
  • Evidence of the car's service history and any other paperwork or documents for the car
  • All the keys for the car
  • Any accessories or parts for the car
  • A valid photo driving licence or passport
  • Proof of address
Yes. It may be possible to sell you car, even if it is financed. To check, you will need to contact the finance company who arranged the sale of your current car. If they agree to a settlement figure, we would be happy to discuss the options available to you. Simply bring the settlement quote in to one of our stores and our friendly team will talk you through the process.
As soon as the paperwork is digitally signed we can pay the funds to the registered keeper, and in order for us to provide a quick and immediate payment, we will need you to complete our onboarding process. This will involve creating a temporary account with our payments platform provider Stripe. Stripe uses open banking technology which removes the need to store card details, provides a fast and reliable service and works with the majority of UK banks. If you have outstanding finance we will also take care of settling this for you.
