Our valuations are valid for the calendar month we made the valuation in.

No waiting 4 days for payment like you will see from some of our competitors.

If there is any vehicle excise duty still left on your company vehicle or fleet, DVLA will automatically send a refund cheque of the remaining full months left when RFS transfer ownership.

The cheque will be sent to the address and name or company name that was printed on the vehicle logbook.

Simply no.

Unlike other valuation sites or vehicle buying services, we do not charge any admin fees for buying your used company vehicle or fleet.
