Recently Bereaved

A confusing and challenging time, the death of a partner or close family member is a traumatic period for anyone.

Uncertainty in the period immediately after bereavement is certainly not a time any of us would choose to deal with pending legal and financial matters. Sadly it is an essential task sorting out the deceased's financial affairs, and this does often include their vehicle.

How we can help

Here at Best Car Buyer pride ourselves on being able to offer a swift, professional and expedient service. We receive lots of enquiries from the recently bereaved asking if we are able to buy the car of a late family member.

We endeavour to make the whole process a quick, painless way to sell a car without anyone incurring additional costs or stress at such a difficult time.

Our customer service team can guide you every step of the way with regards to what needs to be done. We are able to help, take some of the strain and conclude matters quickly and with the utmost sensitivity.

How it Works

If you are responsible for selling a loved one's vehicle, we can discuss all the details either on the telephone or by email, whichever is easiest for you. We will make you our best possible offer. Once a price is agreed for the vehicle, we will ensure the transaction proceeds as smoothly as possible.

We use independent collection drivers to come and collect the vehicle at time and date that is convenient. They will briefly check the car and ensure all the paper work is in order. Once this is done we will transfer the agreed amount by secure bank transfer into the nominated bank account. Our driver will wait with you until you are able to confirm the cleared funds are in your bank account. The whole process usually takes around 20 - 30 minutes.

You do not need to transfer the vehicle into your name, this would cause a delay waiting for the V5 to be returned from the DVLA. Adding an extra owner would reduce the vehicles value too. Best Car Buyer will however, require proof that you are authorised to sell the vehicle in question. This could a legal letter proving that you are either the executor of the will or the next of kin.

If you have any concerns or questions as to how this process works please do not hesitate to contact us. You can call us on 01482 321116 or email [email protected]
