No! We will buy any vehicles from any manufacturer. We also buy vans and campervans too. We are happy to value vehicles at any age or condition.

You won’t get a good price from a dealership

Now is the best time to be selling your car or van to a dealership. At the moment, we are paying more for vehicles due to the stock shortage reported across the automotive industry. This is due to the short supply of semiconductor chips worldwide. So there is no better time to be bringing your vehicle to a dealership to sell.

There’s no benefit to selling your vehicle directly to Mercedes-Benz South West

However if the vehicle you are trading in is worth less than your finance settlement you will be required to pay the difference. Our friendly teams are more than happy to discuss this with you and guide you through the process.
