Simply tell us a little bit about your car online. We value each car on an individual basis, looking at its condition, specification and history, rather than the book price alone – if it's the right car, we're happy to pay more. Although we always like to talk in person, we’re happy to buy your car on the phone or through email.
If you are looking to change of sell your current vehicle, you are in the right place. We offer outstanding part-exchange deals when you trade in your old vehicle – whether you want to drive away in a brand new or a pre-owned model. If you prefer, we can also offer a purchase price to buy it outright. Just let us know what you want and we can discuss your options.
We understand that you want to get the best possible price for your current vehicle – and that is why we promise to offer you a fair deal when you come to us.
Simply enter the vehicle registration number of your current vehicle, followed by your details, and you will receive a free estimate in no time. Remember to double-check your email address to ensure you have entered it correctly, as this is where your valuation will be sent.
This is a great way to establish a budget for your next purchase from us. If you prefer, you can head to our dealership for an assessment in person of your vehicle’s worth. Our expert team is on hand to establish an exact price.
We will endeavour to provide a competitive quotation online. We take time to check the condition of the car, the local market and the desirability before we value your car.
We believe in treating every car on its own merits and price it accordingly, so the more information you can provide the better!
Our experienced car buyers will provide a personalised face to face service and we will be delighted to assist you with any queries you may have.

The valuation generated online is based on the information provided by you ‘the customer’ on your car and on the following general assumptions:
You have the option on the Valuation page to amend these assumptions and provide us with more detail about your car.
The online valuation is not an offer by Pulman to purchase the car. It is a tool to enable you to estimate the value of your car and the price we may be willing to pay for it.
We will always carry out a physical inspection of the car before we agree to buy it. You can book an appointment with one of our showrooms after receiving an online valuation. During the inspection we will look at all the assumptions we have made during the online valuation, which may affect the final valuation we are willing to pay. This may be different to the online valuation based on the assumptions at the time.
We are not obliged to purchase any car brought to an appointment after an online valuation is given.
Subject to a physical inspection, the online valuation is guaranteed for 7 days from the date in which you receive the valuation.
A purchase is only complete when a contract is signed.
On handover we expect the following:
We will also expect the car to be handed over free from personal items. We take no responsibility for the loss of any personal items once handed over.
If any of these requirements are not met, we have the right to terminate the contract with immediate effect and withdraw the offer.
Our standard payment is via BACS which takes up to three working days after the day you sell the car to us to arrive in your bank account. For an additional charge we can arrange next working day payment.
