Frequently Asked Questions

  • What happens to my road tax when I sell my car?

    Road tax is non-transferrable, so you will need to contact the DVLA to let them know that you have sold your car. They will then be able to start the process of cancelling and refunding any full months of remaining tax.

  • What happens to my insurance when I sell my car?

    You will need to ensure that you cancel your car insurance when you sell your car (if it is no longer required), or have it transferred to your new vehicle.

  • How long does it take to sell my car with Wilsons?

    Once you have received your valuation, you can book an appointment to sell your car as soon as the next day, subject to availability. 

  • Will I be charged to sell my car?

    There are no additional fees when it comes to selling your car. The valuation you are quoted is the amount that will be paid into your bank account (subject to your car being in the condition it has been described as). 

  • What documents do I need to sell my car?

    When you come to sell your car, you will need to ensure you have the following documents with you to complete the sale: 

    • Proof of ID (either a photocard driving licence with the address matching that on the V5C or passport and proof of address dated within the last 3 months) 
    • V5C/Log Book (in the name of the person selling the vehicle) 
    • MOT Certificate (with a minimum of 3 months remaining) 
    • Spare Keys (if available)
