How selling my car works with OnlineAuto

Trading your existing car in with OnlineAuto is simple.

We’ll send you a trade-in appraisal form which can be completed in less than 5 minutes, completely online. This form will record your basic car details, and advise which specific photos of your car we need.

Once this is all done, your OnlineAuto car broker will go out to dealers and wholesalers to find the best possible price for your trade in.

As soon as you’re happy with the trade-in value, you’ll sign this off, arrange a date for a handover. At this time, they’ll pay you instantly, take away old car and drop off your new car at the same time if you have one.

What affects your car trade-in value?


  • Vehicle damage can reduce the value of your car, so it can be a good idea to see what your car is worth before paying for it to be fixed
  • Kilometres on the car - similar to age, the fewer kilometres the car has done, the better the value is likely to be
  • Length of registration left on vehicle - the more, the better!
  • Age of the car - typically the newer the car is, the higher the value will be
  • Service history - if the car is regularly serviced it is likely to be worth more

Sell my car FAQs

Both dealers and wholesalers will determine the value of your car in comparison to current market value. To get the best outcome and best value back for your car, you should be mindful of the general condition of the vehicle.

Going through OnlineAuto for your trade-in is easy and convenient. Our team of car buying experts can do all the hard work for you. It’s also important to consider the car market and time the sale of your existing car with the delivery of your new car so you’re not left without a vehicle.

This is simple! All you’ll need to do is provide the wholesaler or the dealer with a payout letter and they will pay the remaining money and pay you the difference, which you can use as a deposit for your new car.
