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 to us.

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 unauthorised valuation you processed using our Valuation Tool (see details in paragraph 6 below).

In order to preserve and maintain the functionality of our Website and Services for everyone, there are a number of things you must not do. You must not:

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

You must not modify the paper or digital copies of any materials you have printed off or downloaded in any way, and you must not use any illustrations, photographs, video or audio sequences or any graphics separately from any accompanying text.

VALUATION TOOL AND CAR PURCHASE

Any valuation generated by the Valuation Tool (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"):

You have the option at the Online Valuation presentation page to amend any of the Assumptions and provide us with some further detail about your Car.

The minimum Online Valuation is £50.00.

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

We always carry out a physical inspection of the Car before we agree to buy it. After you have received an Online Valuation, you may book an appointment for an inspection at one of our branches (an "Appointment").

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 customisation 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.

We are not obliged to purchase any Car brought to an Appointment (in particular we 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) and neither are you obliged to sell any car brought to an Appointment.

Price Guarantee

The Online Valuation is an offer for us to purchase the vehicle at the price quoted. The offer is Subject to our inspection of the Car (as explained further above), and is open for acceptance for seven days from the date on which we send it to you. If there is a significant price change within the 7 day guarantee period, we reserve the right to withdraw the offer prior to acceptance. We will use reasonable endeavours to contact you to let you know that the Online Valuation has changed.

Purchase Contract

A binding agreement to purchase the Car will only be made between us once you have signed our standard written purchase contract (the "Contract"). The terms and conditions that apply to the Contract can be viewed here.

Hand-over Requirements

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

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.

Our guarantee:

We guarantee we are willing to buy every car we value. 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 endeavour to let you know what the new valuation is at least 24 hours before your appointment, so that you have the opportunity to cancel, if you choose to do so.

Payment Options

Our standard payment terms utilise Future Dated Faster Payment which takes up to four working days after the day on which you sell the Car to us to arrive into your bank account.

Next Working Day Payment

For an additional fee of £24.75, we can arrange for you to receive payment on the next working day after the day on which you sell the Car to us. It is possible that events beyond our control may delay payment, and if that happens we will not have any liability to you for the delay, save that we will refund the payment fee if it has been paid, or deducted from the Price, for the enhanced payment speed if the payment is not made within the timescales quoted on the invoice.

Premier Payment -

For an additional fee of £29.75, eligible customers selling their vehicle can choose to have the payment sent to their bank/building society between 30 minutes and two and a half hours. Payment will be made to our bank for processing between 30 minutes and two and a half hours of the sale being processed, and will be made by Faster Payment. Bank/Building societies can take anywhere between 0-2 hours to process fast payments. We will endeavor to ensure your payment is submitted to our bank within 15 minutes of payment being processed. It is possible that events beyond our control may delay payment, and if that happens we will not have any liability to you for the delay, save that we will refund the payment fee if it has been paid, or deducted from the Price, for the enhanced payment speed if the payment is not made within the timescales quoted on the invoice. To qualify for this payment option you must be the registered keeper and have all required documentation to complete the sale. You must not owe (or be in the process of settling) any finance on the vehicle, must not be selling an asset of a VAT-registered entity, must not be subject to a recent registered keeper change and must not be selling a higher value vehicle and the vehicle has not been sold to us in the previous 6 months or have not used the designated bank account with us in the previous 6 months. Sandicliffe reserves the right to exclude a customer from the premier payment option at its own discretion.
