Buying a car with BuyaCar

1 Find your car

Our online search tool allows you to filter through each and every one of the 51137 car we currently have available on BuyaCar. The filters on the left side of the page can help you sort by make and model, while you can also pinpoint engine sizes and fuel types to further fine tune what you're looking for.

But if you need a bit more detail on a particular car, or you want to know which cars are best for a particular task or lifestyle, then we have a whole range of expert content on our website to offer up some advice on which car might be best for you.

Once you've found your ideal car, you'll need to reserve it by paying a deposit to make sure that nobody else buys it. The deposit is fully refundable if you change your mind. At this stage, you can also apply for finance to find out exactly how much the monthly payments will be.

2 Confirmation

Once your car is reserved, we'll ask the supplying dealer to secure the vehicle and take it off the market. As soon as this is done, we'll send you a confirmation, and you can start planning your first road trip.

3 Finance documents

If you're taking out finance, then we will email the documents that need to be completed and posted back, along with some official identification. It's important to tell us if you can't return your documents quickly for any reason. The car is likely to be put back on sale if this stage takes longer than 10 days.

Until we receive the finance forms, we can't arrange delivery of the vehicle, so the sooner they arrive, the quicker we can get your new car to you.

4 Final payment and delivery arrangements

If you've got a finance deposit to pay, or if you're buying in cash, then we'll send you an invoice for the remainder of the payment. We'll also prepare the car for delivery and schedule a date that's convenient for you.

5. Delivery

On delivery day, one of our experienced drivers will collect your car and check it in detail, to ensure that it's been prepared correctly and can be certified by BuyaCar. They will ensure that it drives correctly, deliver it to your door, and explain anything that you're unsure of.

The car will come with a 14-day money-back guarantee and you'll have the option of an additional warranty as well. All you need to do is jump behind the wheel and drive away.
