Why don’t you let us sell your car for you through our Sale or Return (SOR) Service?

At E&J Jarvis we offer a Sale or Return service to Southampton and the surrounding area. We have a high percentage hit rate of achieving a sale on the customer’s behalf.
What does Sale or return mean? Sale or Return (SOR) is an agreement between you (the client) and us (the seller), in which you commission us, E&J Jarvis, to sell your vehicle on your behalf.
Selling cars can cause a lot of stress. Not only do you have the hassle of advertising the car, strangers coming to your doorstep and then having to negotiate the deal for the sale, but it can take a long time for you to sell it. So, leave it to the Friendly Professionals at E&J Jarvis.

The Process

  • Contact us with your details and the vehicle details, including the registration number, mileage, exterior and interior colour, what service history it has, and what condition the car is in.
  • We will look at the details and if we feel that it would fit into our stocking plan, we will contact you (please allow 24-48 hours for us to get back).
  • We will then share with you our knowledge of the car market and tell you what a fair and realistic price you can expect. We will tell you what we think we can return to you and what sort of timeframe we can do this in. 
  • Then you bring us the car, and we inspect it to make sure it meets our criteria, if there is anything needed to be done, we will agree on a cost for preparation services and deduct it from the final sale total if we sell the car.
  • Leave your vehicle with us and we will prepare it to forecourt standards. Your car will sit amongst our stock as if it were one of our own. It is a secure facility so no need to worry.
  • When we sell the vehicle, we will deal with all the paperwork, transfer of ownership, cancelling of road tax etc. We will then transfer the money to you.

Cars we are interested in must be less than 7 years old and have less than 70,000 miles on the clock. However, classic and other models will be considered. Please note that on rare occasions we do have to hand the cars back if we cannot agree to a lower return price and a longer timeframe to enable the car to sell.
