Sell my Land Rover or Range Rover 2023: how to get the best price
If you’re thinking of selling your Land Rover or Range Rover online, here’s how to ensure you get the best price.
If you’re thinking of selling your Land Rover or Range Rover, you have a load of different options, each with their own pros and cons.
If you want to get the absolute best price when selling your Land Rover and are willing to put in a little more effort, then you’ll need to cut out the middle man and sell it yourself.
By listing it on the likes of AutoTrader and listening to a bunch of offers from other buyers, you’ll be rewarded with a higher sale price.
Conversely, if you want the easiest option (assuming you’re planning to replace your Land Rover with another car) then you can just part exchange your Land Rover.
Sadly, this will also get you the worst price.
If you want a third option that’s pretty straightforward but will still net you a good price for your Land Rover, then you can sell to one of the many car-buying sites, which we’ll look at in more detail below.
So how much will you get when selling your Land Rover online?
Sell My Car Guide has all the answers you need.
How much is my Land Rover worth?
Your Land Rover’s value obviously depends on things like its condition, the year it was made and the specific model.
However, you can get a rough idea of your Land Rover’s value by visiting an online car valuation service.
We went to this page on the Parkers site to find out what certain models of second-hand Land Rover are worth, which you can see in the table below.
|Land Rover type||Minimum valuation||Maximum valuation|
|Defender 110 (2019 onwards)||£35,210||£53,845|
|Range Rover Evoque SUV (2019 onwards)||£16,745||£55,145|
Sell my Land Rover: who will offer me the best price?
Now, this is just a very rough guide that only covers very new Land Rovers.
It’s little more than a starting point.
To give you a clearer idea of what price to expect when selling your Land Rover to a car-buying site, we conducted some research of our own.
We entered the details of five different Land Rover models of various ages at four of the main car-buying sites: Motorway, Webuyanycar, Cazoo** and Arnold Clark.
You’ll find the quotes we received in the table below.
In the final column on the right, you can see the average quoted price for the five cars to allow us to compare the sites.
|Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE MHEV Auto (2021)||Land Rover Discovery SP Special ED Pure TD4 (2017)||Land Rover Range Rover SP HSE TDV8 (2007)||Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE TD4 (2018)||Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE SI4 (2018)||Average price for all models|
*Cazoo prices are based on one owner, full service history and ‘good’ condition
So which car-buying site offered the best price for a Land Rover based on our research?
Motorway quoted the best price by some distance at £1,250 higher than the second-best company.
Webuyanycar, which is probably the best-known car-buying site, actually offered the lowest price out of the four we visited, almost £2,500 lower than Motorway.
Now, obviously, our research doesn’t provide definitive proof of who will give every Land Rover owner the best price when selling – it’s just five quotes, after all – but it’s a good starting point.
Here at Sell My Car Guide, our golden rule is to always get quotes from multiple places as part of your initial research.
It genuinely only takes a couple of minutes to get a quote from a car-buying site and it could make a huge difference to the amount you get for your Land Rover.
Take another look at the table above.
If you were selling the Discovery listed in the first column, you’d have been quoted almost £1,700 more at Motorway.
However, Cazoo offered by far the best price for the Discovery listed in the second column, at more than £1,500 above the nearest rival.
While these are just quoted prices and the actual price you receive at the end may be slightly lower, you can be confident they’re at least close to that final price.
The days when car-buying sites regularly offered quotes that were way above what they were actually willing to pay are thankfully mostly behind us.
So if you gather quotes from a bunch of different places and find one that’s miles ahead, then you can be reasonably confident you’re onto a winner.
If there are a couple that are fairly competitively priced, go with the higher one but be prepared to go through the process with the rival if the initial company tries to drastically cut their offer just before the sale.
Here are all the major car-buying sites where you can get an instant online quote:
Key considerations before selling your Land Rover: fees, collection & more
Before selling your car to any car-buying site be sure to factor in any fees that you might be charged.
The big ones to look out for are ‘administration fees’ – effectively just a way for the company to bump up the amount it makes off you – and collection fees, assuming you want your car collected from your house rather than driving it to a centre.
There isn’t really any consistency across the car-buying sites when it comes to how much you’ll be charged.
There are some, like Motorway, that are completely fee-free.
Others, like Cazoo, charge a £49 admin fee AND you’ll have to pay £149+ if you want home collection (although you can choose to drop it off yourself for free).
Then there are sites like Webuyanycar, who charge admin fees of up to £75 depending on the value of your car but don’t offer a collection service at all.
It’s all a bit of a lottery.
If the price you’re offered from rival sites is similar, say within a couple hundred quid, make sure you factor in any fees you’ll have to pay to work out who is truly the cheapest.
If there’s still little to choose between sites in terms of pricing after doing so, be sure to opt for the one that offers collection (see who offers home collection here).
The whole point of selling online is that you’d like it to be a simple process, so save yourself the hassle of driving your Land Rover to a depot and having to sort a ride home.
To help you easily compare services, we’ve checked with each site and outlined who charges what and who offers a vehicle collection service in the table below.

What documents do I need to sell my Land Rover online?
Before you sell your Land Rover, double check you have all the documents you’ll need to transfer ownership.
It would be hugely annoying to discover a single missing sheet of paper is the reason you’re unable to sell when you want.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- MOT certificate;
- Logbook (V5C document);
- Service history – ideally stamped by the dealer;
- Receipts for any work done, parts purchased, recent repairs etc.
Admin to sort after selling your car
Once you’ve sold your car to a site, you need to notify the DVLA that you no longer own the car.
You can do this by filling in the appropriate section of the log book and sending it to the DVLA by post or by completing a form online.
It’s also worth contacting your insurance company to cancel your existing car insurance policy.
If nothing else, you might get a partial refund on your policy.
**Cazoo’s quote system requires additional information beyond simply the reg number and mileage. We’ve tried to match this to the most common seller scenario, but it’s worth keeping in mind the comparison isn’t exactly like-for-like.
