By using any of the Redcorn Services and the Site, You expressly agree to be bound by these Terms and all applicable laws and regulations governing the Site and the Redcorn Interactive Services.
If you agree to sell your car using our site, you will enter into a Purchase and Disposal Agreement.
This Agreement is made between you and Redcorn Ltd. You hereby confirm and agree with us that we shall handle the purchase and disposal of your car subject to the terms and conditions in this agreement following your acceptance of the quote given by us on, or via our website.
These are the terms and conditions on which we purchase your car from you. By accepting the Quote, you agree to accept these terms and conditions.
We shall have the right to make any changes to the terms upon which we purchase your car which are necessary to comply with any applicable law or safety requirement, or which do not materially affect the manner in which we purchase your car, and we shall notify you in any such event.
You can contact us by telephoning or by writing to us using the contact details set out in the Order.
If we have to contact you, we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
In some areas you will have different rights under this Agreement depending on whether you are a business or consumer. You are a consumer if:
(a) you are an individual; and
(b) you are agreeing to the Purchase wholly or mainly for your personal purposes (not for use in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession).
If you do not satisfy the above conditions, for example because you are entering into the Purchase in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession, you will be a business customer.
We may revise these terms at any time by amending this page. Please check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we make, as they are binding on you. These terms were last updated on 08/06/2021.
Your Order is submitted when you accept our Quote. Our acceptance of your Order will take place when we email or phone you to accept it, at which point the Purchase Agreement will come into existence between you and us.
If we are unable to accept the Order, we will inform you accordingly. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, or because we have identified an error in the Quote.
1. You undertake and agree that the following conditions must be satisfied when you enter into this Purchase and Disposal Agreement and at the time the Purchase is completed:
(a) the terms of the Order and any other statements and representations made by you are complete and accurate;
(b) you have the legal and beneficial right to dispose of your car and are able to enter into the Purchase and Disposal Agreement;
(c) you have the right, power and authority and have taken all action necessary to execute and deliver and to exercise your rights and perform your obligations under the Purchase and Disposal Agreement;
(d) your car bears its proper Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and registration mark, and it does not have a personalised registration that you wish to retain;
(e) the odometer reading (mileage) of your car is, to the best of your knowledge, accurate and has not been tampered with;
(f) you are the sole owner of your car and your car is free of all third-party interests, such as charges or encumbrances, and is not subject to any hire purchase or loan agreement;
(g) you have been given a reasonable opportunity to remove any personal possessions from your car; and
(h) we have been given a reasonable opportunity to examine your car and confirm that its condition and location are as stated by you at the time you entered into the Purchase Agreement,
and you undertake and agree that you will:
(i) co-operate with us in all matters relating to the Purchase;
(j) in the event that we arrange to collect your car, provide us, our employees, agents, consultants and subcontractors, with access to your premises and other facilities as reasonably required by us in order to collect the car; and
(k) provide us with such information and materials as we may reasonably require in order to complete the Purchase, and ensure that such information is accurate in all material respects.
If you fail to comply with any of your obligations set out in Clause 1:
(a) we will have the right to suspend the Purchase until you remedy your default, and will not be responsible for performing this Agreement to the extent that your default prevents or delays our performance of this Agreement;
(b) we may terminate the Purchase Agreement with immediate effect by giving written notice to you, written notice is by post or email;
(c) we will not be liable for any costs or losses incurred by you arising directly or indirectly from such failure.
You acknowledge and agree that the Quote is based on the type of car and its location, your answers to the questions about your car’s condition, and, in the case of any unanswered questions, any assumptions that have been made and as set out in the Website Terms. These details have been confirmed to you alongside your Quote and sent to you by email, where you have provided your email address. It is your responsibility to ensure the information that you provide to us is correct and accurate.
You acknowledge and agree that any inaccuracies or missing information may result in the Quote being withdrawn.
We may contact you using the contact details you have provided, to verify or request additional information about your car and its condition.
You acknowledge and agree that we may undertake checks using the information you have provided.
We may carry out an inspection of your car to verify that it meets the description and condition that you specified. In some circumstances, we may need to take a test drive of your car with you.
If, at any point, we become aware of anything that affects the details on which the Quote is based, then the Quote will be void. We may, at our discretion, decide to provide a new Quote, which you will have a reasonable opportunity to accept.
We will confirm the payment method (which may be cheque or electronic funds transfer) with you in advance. Please note that in England and Wales section 12 of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 prohibits the paying of cash for the purchase of cars for scrap metal. In Scotland, the same prohibition is contained in Part 3 (Civic Licensing, Metal Dealers) of the Air Weapon and Licensing Act 2015.
We may at any time, without limiting our other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to you against any amount payable by us to you.
We will contact you to confirm its exact location and to agree a convenient estimated collection date and time. Please note that the agreed collection date and time is an estimate only. We will use our best efforts to collect your car at the agreed time, however we would advise you not to make any plans in respect of the collection, for example by booking time off from work, as we are unable to guarantee that we will be able to collect your car at the estimated time.
We will not be liable to you for any losses if we fail to collect your car at the agreed time, however we will attempt to rearrange the collection if you wish for us to do so.
You shall ensure that your car is available to be collected at the agreed time of collection and that you are present.
Prior to handing over your car, you agree to remove any personal possessions that it may contain. We do not take any responsibility for returning any personal possessions found in your car. Any items found in your car will be disposed of at our discretion.
You agree to provide suitable means of identification (if requested by us), of which we may take copies.
When you hand over your car you agree to provide all of the following in your possession (if requested by us):
(a) all relevant keys (including any locking wheel nut or electronic keys and codes); and
(b) all relevant documents (such as the registration certificate, service history, MOT certificate and manuals).
If your car is to be recycled (rather than being kept on the road) it will be treated at our authorised treatment facility in accordance with The European Union (End-of-Life Vehicles) Regulations 2014 (as amended) in respect of England and Wales, and in accordance with parallel legislation in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to notify DVLA and you agree to do all that is necessary to complete the DVLA filing requirements. Details of how to do this can be found on the DVLA website (link above).
Where your car is to be recycled, we will apply to DVLA for a certificate of destruction and send a copy to you via email if you have requested and certificate at the time we processed your quote and you provided your email address. In the event that it is not possible to issue a certificate of destruction, we shall use reasonable endeavours to notify you.
Either party may terminate the Purchase Agreement with immediate effect by giving written notice to the other party if:
(a) the other party commits a material breach of any term of the Purchase Agreement and (if such a breach is remediable) fails to remedy that breach within 14 days of that party being notified in writing to do so;
(b) the other party takes any step or action in connection with its entering administration, provisional liquidation or any composition or arrangement with its creditors (other than in relation to a solvent restructuring), being wound up (whether voluntarily or by order of the court, unless for the purpose of a solvent restructuring), having a receiver appointed to any of its assets or ceasing to carry on business;
(c) the other party suspends, or threatens to suspend, or ceases or threatens to cease to carry on all or a substantial part of its business; or
(d) the other party's financial position deteriorates to such an extent that in the terminating party's opinion the other party's capability to adequately fulfil its obligations under the Purchase Agreement has been placed in jeopardy.
*You can end your contract with us because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately when you notify us of your wish to end the contract. The reasons are:
(a) we have told you about an upcoming change regarding the Purchase or these terms which you do not agree to;

(e) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
**Our rights to end the contract. We may end the contract at any time by writing to you if:
(a) you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to complete the Purchase;
(b) where we have agreed to collect your car, you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us access to your premises to collect the car;
(c) you fail to perform any of your obligations set out in Clause 5.1 under this agreement or any other the representations set out in that clause are incorrect; or
(d) we have identified an error in the Quote.

(a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors;
(b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or

Events outside of our control. Neither party shall be in breach of this Purchase Agreement nor liable for delay in performing, or failure to perform, any of its obligations under this Purchase Agreement if such delay or failure result from events, circumstances or causes beyond its reasonable control.
Governing law. The Purchase and Disposal Agreement, and any dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales.
