Friendly service - got my money
Rang around to some wreckers about my 1990 VN Commodore automatic, wasnt going to get much more than $200 for it, and we buy any car rockdale was closer than any wreckers, so took it to them.
The online valuation was around $850, I was only hoping to get around $350 anyway, so i went there knowing I wouldn't get much.
Paint was gone, engine was in great nick, had 5 months rego, only surface rust present, ceiling trim was drooping etc etc..
The sales guy said he'd give me $150, but I noticed there was a $50 fee, so I said if you give me $150 ...
Walked in the door and there were people everywhere – very busy. Had to wait 20 minutes after my appointment time. In the end sold my car for less than what I had it advertised for privately but more than what 2 other car yards in the same area offered me earlier in the day..
Bought my Avalon into springwood branch in early June. Ended up signing a deal but needed the car for a few more days until my new one arrived. Dropped my car off to them the following week and the week after the funds were in my account. All in all was approx 3 weeks from signing the deal to getting the money.
money a week after i dropped car off

Not a bad experience, but not the best
I took my car to these guys, and although I didn't have a bad experience it wasn't the best either.
I think the only thing that I have to moan about is the difference in the prices between their website price and the price they offer you when you take your car there. It was a lot less, and when I asked them about that
they said that it is because a computer programme can't see the actual car, which ok is fair enough but it would be better if there was a more accurate way of quoting a price.
What was good was that they where very professi...onal about the whole process, I got the money we agreed for the car as they said I would, and there was no hanging about, I was in and out in about 50 minutes, so I didn't waste a load of time, so from that point of view my experience wasn't bad. I anyone asked me if they should take there car there I would say yes, unless they need top dollar. They where professionals difference in the price you get quoted on the website and the real price
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
