WeBuyAnyBike.Com

Hello!


Im thinking of selling my SV650s (2007) and getting a friends CBR600RR.

Ive heard they are quick to pay, but do they pay right?

I should get at least £2000+ for my machine

Ebays OK, but slow and they skim money off you like nazi's and want money quick.

anybody used WBAB.com?

I'm guessing

they're affiliated to webuyanycar, in which case they'll provide you with a receipt then pay direct into your account a few days after taking the vehicle.

The only downside to this convenient service is that they pay bottom book prices...

if not lower!

really ,REALLY poor prices paid .

Only use as a last resort ,you pay a premium for speed .If your bike is any good ,just put the word around or I think you can do a three or five day auction on ebay?? .You'll lose more in value on WBAB then ebay will take in fee's. Alhtough there's always a first:huh:.

Will your friend not wait a week?

After a few beers a mate and I were curious as to what they would offer for my 1998, VFR800.  At the time the going rate on the private market was about £2,000 and dealers anything up to about £2,500.  WeBuyAnyBike offered £650.

Only use them if you are utterly utterly desperate for instant cash.  I reckon their business model is to take advantage of guys that need a quick sale and are prepared to let their vehciles go for way under market price.

Steer clear

Like other posts unless you really need the money then do not use! Out of interest I put my 2011 S1000RR through their system. In July 2011 it's RRP was £13000 and they offered me 6 months down the line £6495. They just prey on people who may be in a bit of financial difficulty and shaft them so they can make as big a profit as possible.

What's wrong with selling via MCN?

According to our latest survey, 90% of sellers sold their bike with MCN, and 90% of these got the asking price or very close to it. But don't take my word for it - see what recent sellers thought of us.

Yes I used them

and I was given a good price and quick service by them. The only trouble was I had £4k in the house overnight before I could get to the bank. You must be honest with them and dont tell porkies as they know what to look for. I would recommend them.:smile

If they work the same system as westealanycar.con

they will charge you a fee for valuing your bike and then insult you with a pocket change offer - steer clear.

No fee charged

the price I was quoted was the price they paid (in cash).

My understanding was, they quote a figure. If you're happy they charge you a non-refundable fee (presumably in case you're fibbing, and actually selling a load of crap, wasting their time). Then they come and look at the bike, and if they agree they give you what agreed and your fee back.

What I was worried about was, paying a fee, then they say 'this bike is not as described, we'll only pay???'. then if you won't take their new offer, you loose the fee.
This not the case then ?
