Owner:
We Want Any Car is owned by Cox Automotive that is part of Cox Enterprises Inc. There are no media articles on this acquisition deal. It appears to have gone through in 2013 when they made a major investment. Money4YourMotors shares the same owner.

Profile:
This brand hasn’t quite attained the major status of the market leader, but they are very popular online and are growing quickly. Progression has been swift considering that they popped up in 2010 that meant that they had to make up plenty of ground on their main rival who arrived in 2006. The key behind their recent growth has been TV ad campaigning that began in January 2014. They now claim to take 20,000 calls per week at their call centre.

The Process:
As the case with all major car buying services the process includes an initial online valuation, then the booking of the appointment and the completing sale in-branch. Same day visits are possible assuming that they do have spots available. Once you have entered your reg plate at www.wewantanycar.com you’ll get an instant quote once a few extra details are entered. They previously showcased a single price, but they now display 5 (based on the current standard). There is no login provided, but once you enter a quote they will remember your details when you return (assuming that you don’t delete your browser cookies).

The Service Fees and Payouts:
An issue that has unsettled customers in past reviews has been that they were unaware of the We Want Any Car fees. Details on what needs to be paid are found within their Terms & Conditions page. There is 1 forced charge and another that is optional. Firstly we have the main required admin fee that is set at £58.75 for vehicle’s valued under £4999.99. This price rises to £78.75 at £5000 or above. When it comes to payments, the standard free option takes 4 working days. If you require a same day transfer then the cost for this is £24.95. A current promotion makes this free, but this is only running until early 2017.
