In order to provide an online valuation you will need to provide us with information regarding your vehicle. This information will be sent directly to our valuation team. One of our team will contact you by email and text to give you our best possible price for your car based on the information you have provided. This figure is a value that we provide, but is not agreed until we have inspected the car. We will always need to carry out an inspection of your vehicle in order to purchase the vehicle. The inspection may be carried out at our registered premises or at our discretion we may inspect the vehicle at your chosen location.

Any information that you have provided on our website will be used by a We Buy Cars Ireland representative during the inspection process. If during the inspection process we believe the valuation of the vehicle is incorrect due to any aspect of the vehicle’s condition or history including any modifications or unusual features, which were not clear during the online valuation process, the price offered for the vehicle may differ from the online valuation. At the end of the inspection you will be provided with a Final Price, at which We Buy Cars Ireland may purchase your vehicle.
