Cazoo sell car terms and conditions

1 Parties

1.1 Cazoo Ltd ("Cazoo”, “we", “us" or “our") operates www.cazoo.co.uk (the “Site"). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 11624245 and have our registered office at 41 Chalton Street, London, NW1 1JD. 

1.2 You are the customer ("you" or “your") who places a booking to sell your car on the Site.

2 Your Booking 

2.1 The details of your sale are set out in your booking, confirmed on the Site (your "Booking"), including your personal details as the seller, the make, model, registration, valuation price, pick up or drop off time and location for the car that you are selling to us (the “Car").

2.2 You may only place a Booking if you are selling the Car to us as a consumer. If we suspect you are selling the Car to us in a business capacity, then we may cancel your Booking.

2.3 A contract (comprising your Booking and these terms and conditions ("Terms")) is formed between you and us when you complete a booking on the Site and we accept your Booking (the “Contract”).

2.4 If we accept your Booking, we will send you an email confirmation of your Booking. Acceptance is subject to our inspection of your Car and the completion of our car history checks.

2.5 Members of our team have the right to work in a safe and respectful environment. If we consider that you are behaving in a manner that is abusive, threatening, offensive or disrespectful to any of our staff, we may terminate the Contract immediately.

2.6 If there is any conflict, inconsistency, or ambiguity between your Booking and these Terms, your Booking will take precedence.

2.7 We may change these Terms by updating the version available on the Site (for example, for legal, economic, or other business reasons).

3 Sell your Car

3.1 If you wish to sell your Car without buying a car from us, you can do this using the Sell Car tool on our Site. If you wish to part-exchange your Car, then our purchase terms and conditions apply instead.

3.2 To sell your Car to us, you must:

- 3.2.1 be the registered keeper of the Car for at least 6 months; 

- 3.2.2 provide any information and documents about the Car to us when we reasonably request them; 

- 3.2.3 have at least 2 weeks of valid MOT left on your Car from the date of your Booking; 

- 3.2.4 ensure that the Car is not subject to any third-party rights (for example, outstanding car finance, joint ownership, or other loans secured against the Car); and

- 3.2.5 be selling the Car as a consumer only (and not in any business capacity). 

3.3 If you select “drop off”, you will deliver the Car to the Cazoo Customer Centre specified in your Booking. If you select “pickup”, we will pick up your Car from the address specified in your Booking at the time given in your Booking.

4 Valuation

4.1 We provide an instant valuation of your Car using the online valuation service on our Site (the “Online Valuation”). 

4.2 You may use the Online Valuation service for personal, non-commercial purposes only. The Online Valuation is an estimate only, made using information you provide to us that we do not verify. You must not rely on the Online Valuation to make any financial or other decision. 

4.3 Each Online Valuation is valid for 7 days after the date of issue and will expire at 23:59 on the 7th day. If an Online Valuation expires and you still want to sell your Car to us, you must get a new Online Valuation on our Site.

4.4 You can offer to sell your Car to us at the price set out in a valid Online Valuation. To do this, you must let us inspect the Car at Pickup or Drop Off (as applicable). 

4.5 We are not required to buy the Car from you, and any adjustment we make to the Online Valuation following inspection, is solely at our discretion. We will confirm the final purchase price to you after inspection (the “Final Valuation”).

4.6 On inspection we may change any Online Valuation, or reject the Car, for any reason, including where:

- 4.6.1 the Car does not match the description (whether as to specification or condition) you gave; or

- 4.6.2 there is a discrepancy in the recorded mileage, legal registration, or chassis number of the Car; or

- 4.6.3 the Car has been in a major accident or is categorised as insurance category A, B, N or S, or has been subject to a total loss claim; or

- 4.6.4 we identify any other issue in a car history check on the Car; or

- 4.6.5 you do not have the right to sell the car (for example, because you are not the registered keeper); or

- 4.6.6 the Car’s V5 registration document is missing, incomplete or not in your name; or

- 4.6.7 the Car is subject to any third-party rights (for example, because it has a finance marker on it at the point of Pickup or Drop Off); or

- 4.6.8 the Car is an imported vehicle or was not first registered in the UK; or

- 4.6.9 the Car has been used for taxi, private hire, chauffeur, or rental purposes, driving tuition or as a police vehicle or used by a local authority; or

- 4.6.10 the Car does not have a valid MOT (which is valid for at least 14 days after the date of your Booking) or is due for a service in the next 100 miles; or

- 4.6.11 the Car’s tyres are not road legal; or

- 4.6.12 the Car has any mechanical or electrical fault (including problems with steering, transmission, clutch, gearbox, suspension, or brakes).

4.7 Cazoo's decision is final on whether mileage is materially different from that provided in your Booking. Any mileage difference greater than 1,000 miles is automatically deemed materially different for this purpose.

5 Pickup

This section 5 applies only if you choose to have your Car picked up by us.

5.1 We offer pickup from any UK postcode but reserve the right not to collect from certain postcodes including in the Scottish Highlands, Scottish Islands, other remote parts of Scotland, the Isles of Scilly, Channel Islands, Guernsey, Jersey, the Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, and Northern Ireland.

5.2 Pickup of the Car will take place on the date and time set out in your Booking ("Pickup") unless we tell you otherwise.

5.3 Pickup costs £50. We will deduct this amount from the Final Valuation.

5.4 Only you are eligible to hand over the Car. We won’t pick up the Car from anyone else.

5.5 We will only pick up the Car from your home address (as specified in your Booking), which must match the address on your identification documentation and the V5 logbook.

5.6 Our vehicle transporters are roughly 3.5m high, 9.7m long and 2.8m wide. We need access to your address to pick up the Car. If we can’t gain access, we may offer an alternative method of Pickup (for example, by driving the Car from your address), but we aren’t required to do so.

5.7 At Pickup, you must show your V5 registration document along with your photographic UK driving licence or, if you do not have a photographic UK driving licence, your passport plus any other identification documentation we request (for example a utility bill detailing your address) to the Cazoo Delivery Specialist to verify your identity. We may refuse to pick up the Car if you don’t provide this identification when we ask. 

5.8 If you need to rearrange a Pickup, you must contact Cazoo Customer Support by phone on 020 3901 3488.

5.9 At Pickup, you must confirm handover of the Car to the Cazoo Delivery Specialist. You must sign our receipt (or provide any other confirmation we may require) to confirm that we have picked up the Car and that you agree with any issues we identify with the Car on our inspection at Pickup.

6 Drop Off

This section 6 applies only if you choose to drop off the Car at a Cazoo Customer Centre.

6.1 We offer drop off at a Cazoo Customer Centre of your choice (subject to availability).

6.2 Drop off will take place on the date and time set out in your Booking (“Drop Off”) unless we tell you otherwise.

6.3 Only you are eligible to drop off the Car.

6.4 Your Car will only be available to Drop Off at the Cazoo Customer Centre specified in your Booking.

6.5 When you drop off the Car, you must show your V5 registration document along with your photographic UK driving licence or your passport to the Cazoo Customer Centre Specialist to verify your identity and a utility bill in your name to verify your address (plus any other identification documentation we request).  The address on your V5 registration document must match the address on your identification documents. We may refuse to allow you to drop off the Car if you don’t provide this identification when we ask.

6.6 If you cannot make your scheduled Drop Off time, you must contact Cazoo Customer Support by phone on 020 3901 3488.

6.7 At Drop Off, you must confirm handover of the Car to the Cazoo Customer Centre Specialist. You must sign our receipt (or provide any other confirmation we may require) to confirm that you have dropped off the Car and that you agree with any issues we identify with the Car on our inspection at Drop Off.

7 Handover

7.1 When you hand over the Car to us, you must give us:

- 7.1.1 all sets of keys to the Car;

- 7.1.2 the valid V5 registration documentation (which must be red) and, as applicable, any associated documentation (including any service books, and MOT certificates) for the Car; and

- 7.1.3 any extras that a new owner might need (for example, the locking wheel nut for the alloy wheels and any security codes associated with the Car).

If you don’t provide these items, we can’t buy the Car from you.

7.2 You authorise us to transfer the Car’s registered keeper from you to Cazoo (or any other person we nominate) using the Car’s V5 documentation.

7.3 Title to the Car transfers to us on Pickup or Drop Off (as applicable). After this time, you no longer own the Car and we will not be able to return the Car to you. 

7.4 Until Pickup or Drop Off happens, you are responsible for registering and paying for all vehicle tax and for all charges, fines, tolls, civil penalties and similar costs relating to the Car (including charges and civil penalties relating to parking, fines and fixed penalties for motoring offences, clamping release fees, towing fees, impound charges, toll road charges and penalties, congestion charges and other environmental charges) and any taxes or court costs related to them (together “Fines”). You must pay any Fines incurred before Pickup or Drop Off promptly. 

7.5 You agree to reimburse us in full and on request for any costs we incur in processing or disputing any Fines relating to the period before Pickup or Drop Off. We may charge you an administration fee of £20 for each Fine we process relating to the period before Pickup or Drop Off (as applicable). We may withhold an amount for any Fines or related administration fees from the amount we pay you for the Car.

8 Payment

8.1 We will send you an email after we inspect the Car (usually at Pickup or Drop Off) to confirm the Final Valuation and confirmation that we will process payment to you. 

8.2 After Pickup or Drop Off has happened, we will process payment for the Car. Payment will be made via bank transfer and will usually be processed within 2 hours, but we do not guarantee that payment will be processed on the same day as Pickup or Drop Off.  

8.3 If you select Pickup (or if you have rearranged Pickup or Drop Off less than 24 hours before the scheduled time), we will deduct the relevant fees from your Final Valuation before we pay you.

8.4 The Final Valuation includes VAT (where applicable) at the current rate chargeable in the United Kingdom on the date of sale.

8.5 From time to time, we might offer Pickup and other services at a reduced rate as part of a promotion. Any promotion is subject to availability and can be withdrawn at our discretion. For example, a promotion offering ‘Free Next Day Pickup’ is only valid whilst we have the capacity to offer next day Pickup. You will be able to see the next available Pickup date on each product page on our Site.
