Why do I need to upload images of my car?

What if my car is still financed?

It is not an issue if your car is still financed. You need to specify that it is still financed when uploading your car so that the interested dealers are aware of this. This will help them to structure the best offer/deal for you should they decide to purchase your car.

What if I want to remove my car from Match?

Please select "Remove my car" from the emails you will receive from us or on your user dashboard.
Once you have opted out, we will remove your car from our system and our dealer network will no longer be able to view your car and contact you.

How do dealers determine what price I should get for my car?

Dealers look at industry standards of pricing for cars and use that as a base. Depending on the condition, mileage and extras of your car it may be bring the price down or push it up a little.
It also depends on the finance settlement required on your car should it still be financed.
