What documents do I need to sell my car?

With We Want Any Car, it’s easy to sell your car in no time at all, even if you’re not the registered keeper! Once you’ve received your free valuation, you’ll need to find your important vehicle documents to bring along to an appointment at one of our local branches. Here is a checklist to help you find all the necessary items.


Your vehicle documents

  • V5C registration document*
  • MOT certificate (if applicable)
  • If you have any outstanding finance on your vehicle, you will need to bring a letter from the finance company confirming their settlement figure and validity
  • Service book and handbook (as well as any extras such as spare keys, locking wheel nuts, radio & key codes, sat-nav discs)
*In certain cases we will buy vehicles that do not have a V5 registration document (log book) subject to other relevant checks such as a HPI check etc. Each separate purchase will be looked at individually. Payment may be withheld until we have all documentation and equipment that is satisfactory to the vehicle we are buying.

Your personal documents

We also ask that you bring along some personal documents so that we can complete the sale of your car and begin the payment process efficiently. This includes:

  • Personal identification - a photo driving license or passport
  • Either a utility bill, bank / credit card statement or a council tax statement**
  • Your UK bank details
**The address needs to be your current address and match the address on the V5 registration document

What if I'm not the registered keeper?

Don’t stress if you are not the registered keeper, you can still sell your car with us subject to circumstances.
