The former managing director of used car dealership Tyneside Autoparc expects to turnover £1m in the first year of his latest automotive venture.

Chris Denning has launched WeBuyCarsForMore, hailed as the new online way to sell a car – in a move he hopes will see the firm buy more than 500 cars in the next year.

The new car-buying service allows customers to enter their car details, receive a valuation and if they are satisfied with the results and want to sell their vehicle they enter their details and WeBuyCarsForMore arranges an inspection.

The Newcastle-based firm, which has a selling site on Scotswood Road, has over 30 years’ experience in the motor trade and has been involved in ventures with private companies and manufacturers along with dealing with used cars and monitoring the pricing of all the makes and models along the way.

Chris Denning said: “Our new service is for the customers, rather than part exchanging their car we can offer a better price just to buy it and this allows the customer to receive a discount on their new car so a win-win situation for them.

“The company is unique because all the customer has to do is follow three easy steps; registration, mileage and condition, to receive a valuation.

“The unique part is that once they enter their details for a inspection we do the rest.

“They can come to our instant drive through valuation service, but we can also take all the unnecessary hassle away from them and go to them. We have contacts with cars from £1,000 to £100,000 – nothing is to big or too small.

“We don’t believe that a customer has to choose a car that they may not really want.

“They should buy their dream car and we can fulfil their dreams.”

Denning said the four-strong team at WeBuyCarsForMore is looking for any make, model and condition of vehicles within any price or age range, and they offer an easy process and will collect the car from a customer’s home or work.

And the firm is looking to buy as many cars as possible with the minimum of fuss. Chris Denning, added: “Our buying team have been instructed not to pick out faults with a car and then heavily reduce the figure as we do realise they are used cars and these are merely honesty marks.

“We will make sure the process is seamless and will offer a speedy transaction paying you what you deserve within minutes – straight into your bank.

“I always believe that the customer is entitled to a fair valuation for their car and more so now when there is such a shortage of cars so we opened this service to give them another option which is extremely quick and efficient.

“We hope to franchise this out in the future so everyone in the country can enjoy this experience.”
