We buy any Car .com

Had an interesting experience with these guys. Their TV advert says they 'pay you the value of your car if its in the condition you say it is ' ... I'm thinking of writing to the ASA as that statement is complete bollox ... as It happens I came out quite well .. infact .. I think I broke their internet algorithm .. anyone else had any experience ?

We buy any car

It is a load of bull. I contacted theme got a price based on info given, they then asked for photos and agreed it was as described but had to wait for a call back to arrange payment and collection and only at that point did they tell me that their offer was half the original offer and was based on a computer generated offer. The offer was only just above scrap value for a vehicle with 7 months mot and six months tax and running well. Waste of time. Put it on e bay and sold it in 1 day for more than the we buy any car original offer. Don't bother wasting your time

I sold my old Octavia for about a grand more privately than they offered me and to be honest could have got more (I hate selling cars and just wanted a quick sale). I now just get regular annoying emails.

I did alright with them, got rid of my Audi A4 Quattro and they tried to knock me down on price but said i said it didn't matter and walked away, when I got in the car to drive away they phoned me and asked me back. Deal was done and we were all happy.

It's all done off computers that's the problem.
