WeBuyAnyCar 'employee' hits back at 'scam' claim following £5m car collection vid

WeBuyAnyCar 'employee' hits back at 'scam' claim following £5m car collection vid

WeBuyAnyCar are the UK's largest car buying service.

A man who claims to be a WeBuyAnyCar employee has called out a YouTuber who dubbed the company a 'scam'.

Mark McCann attempted to flog his £5 million car collection through the company with surprising results in a viral video.

The championship dirt racer/YouTuber is known for his love of cars as he regularly shows off his impressive collection to his 190k subscribers.

In a recent video, the influencer casually went to get his '£5 million' car collection evaluated.

He used both WeBuyAnyCar and an independent source for the valuation.

First, McCann went to independent car expert Tom Hartley.

"Price of retail value. Now this is going to be a price which is absolutely accurate advice," McCann said, explaining the expert specialises in 'high end cars'.

McCann's six cars are valued at a lot less than £5million due to mileage, the cars' age and their condition.

Tom Hartley concluded that the six cars were worth a still very respectable £1,380,000.

Then, the YouTuber visits WeByAnyCar for a comparative valuation.

WeBuyAnyCar - who claim to be the UK's largest car buying service - have worked with over 3.5 million customers.

Typically, a customer gets a free valuation online, an appointment with a branch and is then able to sell their car

But McCann runs into problems almost straight away, after finding out he's going to need to take the cars in separately at different stores.

This is supposedly due to 'superior' members of staff who got 'spooked' by the high-end collection.

The YouTuber then goes undercover, wearing different outfits and wigs to get his cars evaluated, with a cameraman hiding nearby.

"WeBuyAnyCar aren't known for giving the best prices, which we found out," he said.

One of McCann's cars were given a 'grade three' due to a few 'scratches' and were valued at £35,647, opposed to Tom Hartley's £150,000 evaluation.

And it's fair to say, the others follow a similar pattern as another vehicle was evaluated by WeBuyAnyCar at £17,000 compared to Hartley's £140,000.

A bit of a difference to say the least.

Overall, Hartley evaluated the six-car collection at £1,380,000 compared to WeBuyAnyCar's evaluation of £823,910.

Taking to the the comments section, a man who claimed to work for WeByAnyCar hit out at McCann.

The two evaluations are more than just slightly different.

They wrote: "I work for WeBuyAnyCar and there's so many things I want to explain to you Mark & half of these people were chatting pure shyte."

However, the alleged employee dismissed any 'scam' claims.

"Who is forcing you to sell your s**tty car? No one, a scam would indicate you had no choice and fell victim to a something misleading or untrue, you don't like a price offered then you say no," he explained.

"When you get a price, unless you specify otherwise you're agreeing that the car has NO damage or condition. If you turn up and your car is dented, all wheels are scratched - that will be factored into the price offered.

"But above all, no one is forcing you to sell the car? If it's not the price you want, go elsewhere and try get better."

WeBuyAnyCar declined to comment when approached by LADbible.
