The Car Buying Group Review |

The Car Buying Group
The Car Buying Group | AKA: TheCarBuyingGroup.

Formed in March 2014 by Tom Marley who is now the Managing Director.

Has a large network of 58 outlets that are spread well throughout the UK. These drop-off centres are located within existing motoring businesses such as auto repair shops. All customers are incentivised to head to one of these branches, but they do primarily make collections from your home. The service opening hours whether arranging a collection or heading to them are not shared.


This company is a subsidiary of Digital Automotive Solutions Ltd (same organisation).

This isn’t one of the leading volume buyers, but they did only spring up a few months into 2014. This hasn’t stopped them from gaining early traction in Google search for a variety of key industry terms that is impressive. It is however the great customer feedback on Feefo and Review Centre that is most noteworthy, especially the 96% score over on Feefo. This newcomer certainly looks to be a name to watch out for.

No companies.

The Process:
To get started simply enter your reg number at alongside all the usual things such as mileage, past owners etc. This will generate an instant quote that will be valid for 7 days. There is a login specific to retrieving your valuation on the site. When they have the lead capture they will send you a message by email and phone you up within the space of a few hours to move forward. When you request a collection there is usually a 2 day delay in place. Heading to a drop-off point will be by appointment only that they’ll discuss by phone. As always, valuations are based on top spec vehicle’s and are subject to change.

The Service Fees and Payouts:
A same day payout is provided at no additional charge. There is a £50 admin fee that is stated for vehicle’s over £500. The good news is that this charge can be voided if you can head to them rather than waiting on a collection. In doing so they provide £50 cashback.
