Our Services

This Website provides the Services through which you may:

  • Submit details of your car or another vehicle to get an online valuation; and
  • Submit your personal contact details in order for us or the traders (the “Traders”) registered on the iCashCars Trader’s Portal (the “Trader’s Portal”) to contact you about your car valuation, and/or a potential transaction regarding your vehicle.

By submitting your details to us and so creating an account with us, you warrant that you are over 18 years old, reside in the United Kingdom and that the details you provide to us are true, accurate, complete and updated. If you are submitting information via the Website about a car you do not own, or on behalf of another person, you warrant that you have all the requisite permissions necessary to provide us with such information to use in accordance with these Terms of Use.

You accept that any online valuation shown on our Website is indicative only and is based on a set of assumptions about your vehicle. You understand that the actual price offered and/or paid for your vehicle by iCashCars or a Trader may change following further discussion with, or inspection of the vehicle carried out by us or one of the Traders. Submitting your details to our Website does not oblige or bind you to sell your vehicle to us or any of the Traders.

Specific services that we offer, or make available to you from time to time, through the Website may also be governed by additional or alternative terms and conditions with us, or other third parties (including third party privacy policies). Where you take up any such services, please review these additional terms and conditions carefully.

Traders registered on the iCashCars Trader’s Portal

You acknowledge that the valuations on our Website are not final offers to buy the vehicles at that price from the Traders or from us. You further acknowledge that you are not contracting directly with us for the provision of any car buying services and that we are only providing services to facilitate the sale of your car to Traders. It is stated that in certain instances we may also buy cars from the leads that we have generated. This however, does not constitute as a guarantee that we are in any way obliged to buy cars from the customers directly. We have a specific buyer model that we operate and which has been detailed on the Website. Although we select the Traders carefully (to attempt to provide you with the best possible price for your vehicle, and the best possible customer service), we are not party to your transaction with any Trader. As such, we do not make any representations, guarantees or warranties of any kind on behalf of the Traders.

When you request a car valuation, your details (including certain information we collect about you through your use of the Website in accordance with our Privacy Policy) may be passed to the relevant Trader who purchases the lead to your vehicle through the iCashCars App/Portal. You agree that the relevant Trader may contact you to set up an appointment with you to inspect your car and gather other relevant information. Pursuant to this, you and the Trader may agree on a purchase price and proceed with the sale. Use of this Website in no way obliges you to accept a price offered by any of the Traders.

All communication between you and any of the Traders is subject to the terms and conditions of the Trader, and we accept no responsibility for any deal, car purchase, payment or disputes that may arise between you and the Trader.

Permitted use of our website and valuation tool

Our Valuation Tool has been designed to allow private individuals or businesses wishing to sell a car on their own behalf (i.e. not as part of their own commercial activities) to obtain a valuation of their car and to provide them with the opportunity to sell the car.

You are only permitted to access and use the Valuation Tool for personal, non-commercial purposes (i.e. not as part of your own commercial activities). Use of the Valuation Tool to obtain car valuations for commercial purposes, for example, to value cars you intend to sell to third parties and not to us, is strictly prohibited.

We continuously monitor the use of our Valuation Tool and use technology to inform us of any improper, commercial use. If we identify any improper commercial use of the Valuation Tool, we may charge you a fee for each unauthorized valuation you processed using our Valuation Tool. Use of our Website and Services is free of charge. However, if you are using our Website or Services for commercial purposes, we may decide to issue you with an invoice for each valuation you obtain using the Valuation Tool (a “Commercial Online Valuation”). The cost per Commercial Online Valuation is £4.95 plus VAT.

Valuation Tool and Car Purchase

Any valuation generated by the Valuation Tool on our Website (an ” Online Valuation“) is based on the information you tell us about your car (the “Car“) and on the following general assumptions we make about your Car (the “Assumptions“):

  • it has a minimum of 6 months MOT;
  • it is not an import, i.e. it is a right-hand drive vehicle with UK registration plates;
  • it has never been subject to an insurance write off or used for private hire, rental, driving tuition or as a police vehicle;
  • there are no major mechanical faults with the car;
  • it does not have a personalized registration plate, or, if the vehicle has a personalized registration plate it will remain with the Car and no value is assigned to it;
  • it has no damage, including interior and mechanical;
  • it has an engine which starts and it can idle on its own, i.e. it is not a “non-runner”;
  • you have two sets of keys for the car.

Once the Online Valuation is completed, you have the option at the time that our sales agents contacts you to amend any of the Assumptions and provide us with further details about your Car.

The minimum Online Valuation is £50.00.

An Online Valuation is not an offer by us or the Traders to purchase the Car. It is simply a tool to enable you to estimate the value of your car and the price which we or the Traders may be willing to pay for it.

We have two specific ways in which we offer Services for the sale of your cars. The first is where we may buy your car/vehicle ourselves. Once you get an online valuation and consent to receiving a call back from us, you will be contacted by our sales team representative to collect further information and pictures of the car. For cars that we may be interested in buying ourselves, a physical on-site inspection of the car is then carried out by our On-Site inspectors. We always carry out a physical inspection of the Car before we agree to buy it. If, on inspection of the Car at the Appointment, we consider that the value of the Car is affected by any aspect of its history or condition, including any unusual feature or customization or anything which affects or limits the Assumptions we made about the Car, which was not apparent to us when we gave the Online Valuation, the price that we may be willing to pay for it following an inspection (the “Price”) is likely to differ from the Online Valuation.

The second and more predominant way in which we offer our Services is where we have a specific buyer model to facilitate the sale of your cars to the Traders registered with iCashCars through the iCashCars Trader’s App/Portal. Once you/the customer gets an online valuation for their vehicles and consent to receiving a call back from us, you will be contacted by our sales team representative to collect further information and pictures of the car. After double-checking the information from the customer, the car is then sent to the Trader’s App/Portal and leads to the vehicle are available for the Traders to purchase. A Trader who purchases the lead, will then have direct contact with you to book an appointment (the “Appointment”) at the convenience of both the parties. At this stage, the physical on-site inspection of the car is made which is essential prior to the sale of the vehicle to the Traders.

We/the Traders are not obliged to purchase any Car for which an Appointment is set and (in particular we/the Traders reserve the right to turn you away from an Appointment if you are selling the Car for commercial purposes, e.g. in the course of a motor trade business). Similarly, you are not obliged to sell any car for which an Appointment is set with us or with the Trader.

Purchase Contract:

For Agreements to sell the car to us directly: A binding agreement for purchase of the Car will only be made once you have signed the standard written purchase contract (the “Contract”). The terms and conditions that apply to the Contract can be viewed here (provide link)

Hand-over Requirements

At the time of making the Contract, we will expect you to provide us with:

  • all copies of the Car’s keys you have;
  • the Car’s registration document (together with appropriate proof of purchase if requested by us);
  • the Car’s service history (if any);
  • the Car’s MOT certificate (if any);
  • the Car’s user manuals (if any); and
  • any accessories there may be such as a locking wheel nut, radio fascia or remote controls.

We will also expect you to remove any personal possessions from the Car once the Contract has been concluded. We will not be responsible for any personal items lost once the Car is in our possession.

In the event that you fail to comply with these hand-over requirements, you agree that we have the right to withdraw any offer to buy the Car with immediate effect, to rescind or terminate any Contract with immediate effect, and/or to indicate a revised Price at which we will be prepared to purchase the Car. If we elect to rescind the Contract, we will return the Car to you, and you will refund the Price to us.

Agreement to sell your car to a Trader: You understand and acknowledge that for contracts to sell your car to any of the Traders, you will be bound to follow the procedure and terms and conditions set out by the Traders, including signing of any written purchase contract with the Trader and other formalities outlined by the Trader.

Our guarantee:

We guarantee we are willing to assist you in selling every car that we value on the Website. Our Trader’s model has been specifically designed to meet this objective. So that we don’t waste your time, if there is a change in the market value of your car resulting in a reduced valuation, then we endeavor to let you know what the new valuation before your appointment, so that you have the opportunity to cancel, if you choose to do so.

Payment Options:

We pay by bank transfer, using Faster Payments where available.
