With more than 400 branches across the UK, We Buy Any Car is one of the biggest and most recognised auto dealerships in the country. Headquartered in Surrey, the industry giant employees more than 700 people and prides itself on quick and easy service.

The promises are lofty, with the company pledging to “sell your car in under an hour” and value your car in just 60 seconds. The service has been an undeniable hit with British motorists, who have left more than 100,000 reviews on Trustpilot and an overall rating of ‘excellent’. That said, the reviews aren’t all glowing – we’ll touch more on that later.

So, what does We Buy Any Car do with its influx of vehicles? We take you behind the scenes and reveal where do We Buy Any Car sell their cars.

Dealerships, car supermarkets and auction houses

Where do We Buy Any Car sell their cars? When you sell your vehicle to this company, it’s generally heading straight to a nearby dealership where it will be sold at a profit to another driver. Alternatively, it may be listed on an online ‘car supermarket’ where it will also be sold at a profit.

If the car isn’t in great condition, it may be relocated to one of the company’s regional centres where it’s offered to a different set of car dealerships and traders. If the car isn’t sold here, it will likely be sent to a car auction and ideally sold for a profit, though this is not guaranteed.

This is why We Buy Any Car covets vehicles that are in good or excellent condition, as the chances of turning a profit are much higher. The risk of having to send a car to auction and losing money is much higher for older and less desirable vehicles.

The cons of We Buy Any Car

  • Frequent reports of sellers receiving higher price quotes online, then being lowballed at the dealership.
  • Has previously been in hot water with bodies like the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) for misleading motorists.
