Your Vehicle must be registered in the United Kingdom.

2.2 We will endeavour to provide You, within 2 Business Days of submission of a completed Scania Valuation Request Form, an initial valuation by email (“Indicative Valuation”). The Indicative Valuation is valid for 10 Business Days, after which it will automatically expire.

2.3 If the Indicative Valuation is of interest and You would like to pursue the sale of the Vehicle to Scania please contact us by email at: or, as appropriate, to make an inspection appointment. Once we have completed an inspection of Your Vehicle (“Inspection”) we will provide You with a Final Valuation.

2.4 You will be required to deliver the Vehicle to us, or our nominated agent, at the time and location confirmed by us so that we can carry out an Inspection. We shall endeavour to provide You with a Final Valuation within 2 Business Days of the Inspection.

2.5 During the Inspection we reserve the right to carry out any checks and tests (including road tests) that we consider necessary in order to ensure we have all the information necessary to carry out an accurate valuation.

2.6 The Final Valuation will confirm the price we are willing to pay for Your Vehicle, subject to:

(a) clauses 3.2 & 4.5;

(b) delivery of the Vehicle to us or our nominated agent at the location confirmed by us (with all Loose Items) within 30 days of the Final Valuation;

(c) the Vehicle being in the same condition on delivery to us (handover) as it was at the date of the Inspection (fair wear and tear excepted); and

(d) a Contract being signed by You and Scania.

2.8 All Valuations are provided on a ‘no obligation’ basis. We, and You have the right to withdraw from the discussions at any time without any legal consequence or liability. A Valuation does not constitute an offer from us to purchase the Vehicle.
