I didn't enter all my bikes details, what now?

The value you receive for your motorbike is based on the details that you enter. It is important to describe your motorbike exactly as it is, we value your bike based on this information, this would lead to misleading bike values being offered. Putting the correct details in at the start saves a lot of time when you sell your motorbike, we do check all information by telephone contact anyway before we commit to an offer. It's not a problem though you can always call us on 0161 713 3218 or email us at [email protected]

Will you buy a bike with a Private Registration?

Yes! We can buy your bike if it has a Private Registration Plate, however it's better that you retain or transfer the plate before you sell the bike. It involves a little more paperwork than usual depending upon a plate transfer or retention. We can take care of all the paperwork on your behalf should you wish. The fee for a plate transfer is currently around £80 and plate retention £105. It can take time to transfer or retain the plate though, and is out of our hands once passed to DVLA, usually taking up to 10 days for a retention.

Can I keep my Private Registration when you buy?

Yes! All you will need to do is to put your Private Registration Plate onto a rentention certificate so you can sell it seperately or assign it to a new vehicle at a later date. To find out how to do this contact the DVLA at http://dvlaregistrations.direct.gov.uk/.
