Hassle free sale
I sold my old ford xr2 turbocharged Capri to the guys at Springwood. It was not in the best condition for its age and it's performance days were over. I was offered a reasonable market price and within 20 mins the deal was done. My cheque was posted to me on time. I considered it any easy way of selling my vehicle. Thank you agian
The guys new their cars
My car was a little beat up and I was having no luck selling it privately. Didn't want to spend more money to fix it up either. Took it in to we buy any car at springwood and they bought it. It was a little less than I had hoped but needed it gone. Got the cheque about 12 days later. Staff were friendly, even dropped me home.
Easy & quick
Quick and easy
All good for me also. Price I got was not too far off what I thought. didn't have to wait weeks weeks dealing with idiots and tyre kickers. Sold it on the spot. Cheque did arrive a few days late but dont care, rather have the cheque a few days late than still trying to sell my bloody car!
Dodgy....and be suspect of these other reviews
Just got back from We Buy Any Car Springwood.
Was offered $3000 for a 2004 Toyota Camry Ateva (on CarSales.com.au for $8900). I laughed at him as I left.
I was approached by phone to bring it in to them for a valuation. Whole process took 30 mins so wasn't all that painful.
They told me they sell to dealerships and get a ‘spotters fee’. Also that they 'receive no margin on the car sale itself'.
The first part I can understand, not sure how true the no margin part is...
Took our 2000 reg Toyota Camry into these guys, on the website it said $5,000! But knew we wouldn't be offered that as it had bodywork which needed doing. The salesman [name removed] took a look around the car and initially offered us $300! To which I said we weren't prepared to take. His counter offer was $700 after admin fee's. Which wasn't great but we accepted. Its now been almost a month since we sold the car and still no cheque..Has anyone who sold there car after March 26th got their cheque yet? I'm not in any hurry for the money as such..., but just want the cheque so its not hanging over me and I can learn from this mistake not to use these cowboys ever again.. Also, if you notice all the positive reviews have probably been done by the company themselves, there all names with 2 numbers at the end and don't quote me on this, but I am pretty sure there the names of the salesmen at the springwood branch.. Nothing positive as of yet and doubt there will be a positive to come out of the experience 4 weeks and still no cheque!
No payment recieved
Sold my car to the Blacktown branch on the 23rd of April 2012 and still have not received any payment. Called multiple times at the number listed on the website and keep getting put through to payments department where no one answers and am offered to leave voice-mail or it just cuts out.. Have left three voice mails and no one has rung me back. Am tempted to report the car stolen.
Cant fault they did what they said.
I read the reviews before i went down so i asked a lot of questions to the sales guy when i got there and i have to say he was very helpful to my husband and i.
We went to the Brisbane branch in Springwood and dealt with a guy called Jamie i told him we had an appointment and he gave us a run down on the company.
He said they had referred there payment terms as there was a new government system for checking the cars called PPSR which had held them up as cars were not coming up on there, he said this was not there fault and that how could th...ey pay for a car which was not showing on a government website. I new nothing of this but told him i wanted this in writing which he produced for us straight away with out any fuss at all.They price was agreed on and we left our car with them along with the paperwork, i have to say at this point i was a bit worried but as promised we were paid into our account on time with no problems at all. My husband and i then went and brought our new Mazda 3 and got a great deal as we had no trade in.All in all a good experience. Simple and effective.
Sold my car at their Springwood Office on 31st March 2012.
Still to receive my cheque ? DAY 18 and still waiting.
Called their accounts department but still no answer.
Very bad customer service. Very bad turn around time with regards to payment. How late has anyone received their payments ????
We all should complain to Fair Trading.
Still no money for me either
I was quoted $2,400 online when I got there they offered me $165! Got them up to $300 because I wanted it gone and I am still waiting for my money. I called them today and was told they would send a cheque this Friday, I said this wasn't good enough and asked to speak to a supervisor. Finally got through and have now been told I will be transferred into my bank account on Friday. Will wait and see. I wish I had read this website before I went, how do they keep getting away with it? Maybe A Current Affair should get involved!
22 days still no money
We sold our car to we buy any car on the 27/3/12, have not seen one cent of the money!
Over the multiple times we have a called them, they state they will call us back but we have yet to recieve a call !!
They are rude and unhelpful
Im not sure of the other people who state they have had a good experience because I certainly have not had a good experience!
Their services, advertising and promises !
We Steal Any Car
Told $4000 on the internet but once at the branch that offer dropped to $1000 which then turned to $200. I just wanted it gone so said yes. That was the 17th of March now the 10th of April and I still have not been given the $200 dollars they have basicly just stolen my car and given me a worthless contract in exchange.
Still waiting on my cheque!
I sold my car to the Springwood branch on teh 17th of March 2012 and am still checking my letter box daily for my money. I have had 2 phone calls during this time both with the call centre and also the account department. After waiting over 2 and a half weeks after they took possession of my car for my payment I called them and asked for an update at which time I was advised that the had a lot of sick staff and they were tyring to process all payments before Easter. And of course the cheque should be in my letter box after Easter. So no cheque ...and another call only to be advised that my file has been marked as urgent and it will be sent on Monday and to allow time for Australia post. It has now been almost 5 weeks since I left my car with them and now I can't get through to anyone and no one is returning my calls. What they have done amounts to theft and I am only sorry that I did not do more thorough research before I went down this path. I would strongly recommend that any potential customers steer clear of them and I am still holding out hope that I will see my money sometime soon. My entire experience has been tarred due to the fact that I feel completely ripped off! We Buy Any Car has effectively robbed me of my car
Can't speak for others but I found the WBAC service in Sydney good. Agreed sale, headache free. Little less than I had want but still better than any other dealer. Dropped car off a week later when my new car was ready to pick up and paid 5 days after dropping off my vehicle.
Don't waste your time
Went there with optimism after getting the quick quote online of up to $8,150, only to get there and get a rediculous offer of $2,500. My lowest trading valuation was $4,500, which I was told would be bettered if I was prepared to signup that day.
Don't even bother giving these guys the time of day, you are better off taking your chances with the dealers.
Where's my money!?
I have been waiting for money since 02/03/12 - do not sell to these people they obviosuly hang onto your money as long as they can and give you excuse after excuse "it's been processed today"..not! I want my money today, no more excused! Do not let these people rip you off they will buy your car for so much less than it is worth and then they shaft you when they have to pay you - persist and sell it yourself!
They dont pay you your money!
We Buy Any Car But Won't Pay
Sold my car to webuyanycar Strathfield on 5th March but have seen no money yet (28/3). 21 days and no pay. Called them every day after the promised 7 days but no one seems to know anything and no one ever calls back. Accounts department says It will be done today but it never is.
Like the other reviews on this site:you can probably get the same low price from your local dealers without the hassle of waiting 3/4 weeks for your money. (If they ever pay)
Questions & Answers
So who owns the cars that We Buy Any Cars have sold if they have not paid the previous owner?
From what I've heard from others a lot of the cars have already been sold to other people even though somehow they're still registered to the previous owners who've copped fines and such by the new drivers/owners. I was told my car would most likely be shipped interstate (outback) to be used as a hire car for tourists in the outback as it wasn't in good condition. The only smart thing I did was go down same day and cancel my Rego and hand my plates in so I could get a refund, otherwise god only knows what fines and such would be in my name. Unfortunately so many others weren't so lucky. Because their car has somehow been onsold even though its still registered in their names they've lost their car, money and are still making loan repayments and now fines.
If they took the car and haven't paid, then they haven't completed their part of the contract - ring and ask for your car back.
If they don't produce the car call the police and report the car stolen.
Just done that, good advice
Ring manhiem to see if car is there if it is tell them the car has not been paid for they will put a hold on it as you can use your claim of right to get the car back that is from the police
