Having recorded over 20,000 offers from dealers across the country during August, carwow is confident the service is hitting the right notes with dealers. Stef Mickiewicz, a Regional Buyer with WR Davies described Sell Your Car as “A great platform to source our used cars. A professional, reliable service and highly recommended.”
