UK car for export sale - advice needed.

Hi,

I wanted to find out if anyone has
a recommendation/contact details of one of those export buyers that leave cards on your windowscreen, that would buy a UK RHD car.

I have tried local garages but they are not interested, as it is not imported. It has been a really good car to us, I guess like everyone here with a UK car, it feels way too good to scrape.

Car details for those interested:

Located in Steffisburg, BE.
2007 Mk 5 VW Golf Graphite Blue
1.6 FSI Automatic
118300miles
MOT is until 13/09/2020
4 Season CrossClimate tyres
Updated Pumkin DAB android stereo with dash camera.
+/-Thule wingbars

Body work, dent damage on the right front wheel arch and paint damage on the drivers door. But otherwise is in good working condition with general scratches around

I planned to drive it back to the UK to keep, but that is now difficult, which is why I want to sell it.

Many thanks in advance.

So, it is on Form 15.30, right ? Or did you smuggle the car?

Re: UK car for export sale - advice needed.

Be a ember for 2 weeks here and a make 10 useful posts to help the community and you could advertise it for free. But the market for used RHD cars on UK plates is miniscule here.

Those guys who leave cards on your windscreen might give you 25% of it's UK 2nd hand value. Best bet would be to drive it back to the UK and leave it with a friend to sell, you can be in London in 10 hours and get the next flight back.

Advertise it in the UK on the terms that the buyer will have to collect it from Switzerland. You might get something for it.

How much are you looking for it? I wouldn't mind a trip to the UK and could drop the car by a friend who'd be happy to keep it or flog it.
