I just wanted to drop you a line to say how pleased i was with your service.

After being messed around by a very well known online vehicle buying company, (reducing their quoted price by more than £500 for ridiculous supposed 'faults' on a 4 year old van), it was a pleasure to deal with you and i'm so glad i found you.

To avoid disappointment and a waste of time, it is obviously in everyone's interests to be as honest as possible about the condition of a vehicle, and unlike the 'computer' generated quoting systems that other companies use, i found your detailed online questionairre made it very easy to detail the condition of the van. That, coupled with the fact that i could phone a trade professional to discuss any issues prior to collection, rather than a receptionist, meant that i was very confident that the price quoted wouldn't be knocked down.

I have now carried out some research, and it seems that a lot of these online buying companies where you have to take the vehicle to them, employ commission based sales people who's income is directly related to how much they can knock down the online quoted valuation!

The sole intention when you arrive is to find any minor, petty detail (on what is after all a USED vehicle), to use as a stick to beat the price down!

I find this is a totally negative and intimidating way of working, and pretty OUTRAGEOUS, and would NEVER consider using one of these type of businesses again.

I think you offer a vastly superior service. Complete honesty, excellent payment options, and turned up when you said you would!

I would thoroughly recommend your service to anybody. Hope your business continues to thrive, (and i have no doubt it will), and thank you again for your help.

" The whole process of selling the car to Trade Bid was straightforward and seamless. They were true to their word in paying  before taking the car away with no messing around which you often hear of with regard to some other on line dealers. The price was fair but more than anything it was the feeling that I could trust them which was the crucial factor in deciding to sell to them "

I just wanted to drop you an email to say what a pleasure it has been doing business with you. Your up front, honest approach is refreshing, and I also liked the fact that your service included picking up the vehicle at my home making it very convenient for me. The financial arrangements were also very effective and gave me complete confidence in the company I was dealing with.

I certainly know who to come to next time I need to sell a car!

Thanks again

I needed to sell my Mazda RX8 fairly quickly to buy a used car that I had my eye on and that I knew would sell soon. I knew roughly what I should be offered for my Mazda and the 3 online sites I tried came in around the same level. HOWEVER, when it came down to specifics one of them cut the offered price by a third and all except TRADEBID wanted me to drive to their depot where they would inspect the car and confirm the offer.

Having read about the haggling that can happen (see '2012 Awards' issue of 'What Car') I called TRADEBID and after questioning me about the condition of the car they confirmed their offer. The following day they came round punctually at the time agreed and in 10 minutes the deal was done for CASH. No haggling and all very polite. I have no hesitation in recommending them and would use them again. My tip: be straight with them and they'll be straight with you.

My best wishes for the future to Robert and his colleagues, John B - Goring-on-Thames.

I tried selling my car privately but after a number of time wasters and a couple of suspicious callers, decided to get a few quotes to sell directly to the trade. I was slightly dubious at first as had heard bad press about certain business's who offer to buy your car. I found Tradebid online, filled in their online questionare and within half an hour received an offer via email. I made a quick call and accepted their offer over the phone and arranged a time and date for them to look at the car at my home address.

On the day of collection, I was met by two very friendly, polite gentlemen. They looked over the car, took it for a test drive and wired the full previously agreed amount straight into my bank account! I highly recommend. If you want a quick, hassle free sale from a friendly, professional business, then use Tradebid!

If you are looking for a genuine buyer of your car then I would look no further than TradeBid before any other company (and that includes the major online car buyers we all know about) 

After being messed about by these so called big brands, I stumbled upon Tradebid via a Google search, 10 minutes later I was made an offer that I was very happy with via Email. 

24 hours later Having spoken to the one of the sales team via the phone and explained the Minor problem on my car they were at my house looking over the car, as what I said corresponded with what they saw they accepted the deal was on and the car was sold. They paid for the car via transfer and once I checked the money had cleared, I released the car. Tradebid were very professional during the short time of doing business, (24 hours). NO CHANGE ON PRICE, THE SAME OFFER MADE WAS THE SAME AMOUNT PAID. THIS IS 100% GENUINE CUSTOMER AND MY ONLY ADVICE WILL BE TO DEAL WITH TRADEBID 1ST  BE HONEST ABOUT YOUR CAR AND YOU WILL BE A VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER.

I first spoke to TradeBid on the telephone at 4.30 pm (Friday afternoon), we agreed a price for my vehicle, 12.30 pm (Saturday afternoon) I collected a driver from the local Railway station, One hour later the money had been transferred into my account and the deal was completed, A first class, Smooth, painless transaction, I wish them every success for the future.

In 40 years of owning and driving cars I think that selling my car to TradeBid was probably the quickest easiest transaction ever, from the very first contact through to the end TradeBid were very professional and kept me informed  throughout.
I will defiantly use them again.

Thank you TradeBid keep up the top class work.

I just wanted to send a note to say thank you for the excellent service you provided in purchasing my Renault van recently.

I was a little dubious of trying an online van buyer but the efficient way you dealt with my sale, from initial contact to point of sale was second to none.

To go from initial enquiry to cash in my hand within 24hrs  far exceeded my expectations and I would have no hesitation in using your company again and will certainly recommend you to anyone thinking of selling a vehicle and looking for a quick, efficient and hassle free service.

I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was to deal with a professional company who offered a fair price for the vehicle to be sold to trade. It was a very simple process with the money paid directly into my account. I would certainly recommend your company to anybody that had a quality vehicle for sale. Many thanks for making it so easy and hassle free.

Many thanks once again.

I found the team at Tradebid to be extremely reliable and trustworthy traders who purchased my Jaguar with the minimum of fuss or delay. A price was agreed and the sale fully transacted in a matter of hours. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tradebid to others who are similarly looking to sell or indeed source a vehicle in the future."

Hi guys, glad you were pleased with the van, have to say I have dealt with a couple of traders regarding past cars the last one turned up and offered peanuts and asked me to lend him 20 quid as he had no petrol for his van!!!   As I told Tom it was a pleasure doing business with you, upfront, and polite and honest in what you required and what you would be prepared to pay.  My husband and I were very pleased with your offer and the fact that it was all done and dusted in two days, I would certainly recommend your services to any of our friends and colleagues should they need to sell their vehicle.

Best Wishes

I am very pleased with the interactions we had and the service you provide. This must be the most friendly and hassle-free way to sell a car and I was impressed that you were as good as your word - the price agreed via email and telephone was what finally ocurred, and the in-person checking, payment and collection took only minutes. I would definitely recomment your company.

Hi There,

Thanks for that, glad you got the money ok - it all worked out well.
I've got the receipts for the passat's after market wheels here - so I'll post them onto you tomorrow.

Really was a pleasure buying the beemer off you, no pressure no pushy wheeler dealer type stuff, and really trusting - glad to find someone else like me out there. I know 90 percent of other dealers wouldn't have let me take the car, or given a trade in price which we were both happy with. Very happy with the new car, thanks for giving up your Sunday.

All the best,
Jason.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My wife and I thought TradeBid's service was very professional. They offered us a fair price for the car after we had discussed the exact condition of it over the phone. Its worth being as brutally honest as possible as you'll then get the price that's originally agreed. The guys at TradeBid turned up on time, briefly gave the car the once over and then transferred the money into our account in under 15 minutes.

All in all a good service and we would use them again.

Hi, I sold my Smart Car without any fuss. I was quoted a price, Someone from TradeBid came the next day, at the time promised, and paid in cash as I had requested. It was a pleasure to do business. I would certainly use their services again.

I want to recommend Trade Bid to everyone wanting to sell their car. The online form is simple to use and the quote you're given is the amount you'll get in cash (or bank transfer).
They held the quote for 2 months until I was ready to sell my car, came to collect it on the day I wanted, arrived on time and were really nice people, no trying to pay less and made it totally hassle free.
If you are thinking of selling your car, try Trade Bid first, you won't need to go anywhere else.

Coming to sell our mini cooper s to trade bid we found easy and efficient.
Robert was a gentleman to deal with and having discussed the previous day the very slight blemishes on the car and agreed a price and kept to it.

No attempt to denegrate the car was made and unlike many other used car dealers no last minute attempt to haggle was made.

This is the way all used car dealers should behave but unfortunately do not.
A pleasure to do business with and I would whole heartedly recommend trade bid to anybody.

As a reluctant seller, it was important to me to have an easy sales process. Tradebid provided that by responding quickly to my emails, keeping me informed of your ETA to collect my car and giving me the price you had offered over the phone. My car served me well for 16 years and I am sure you also have a good deal with your purchase.

It was a pleasure dealing with you.The service you provided was top class. Your offer was better than anyone else on the web (I've tried quite few) by £300-£900. That means there is someone fair out there :) Your offer was comparable to a px (a garage offered me the same money). Tony is a very nice guy. I will definitely reccommend TradeBid. Thanks a lot.

Best.
