What does “subject to viewing” mean?

Valuations issued from our website and telephone staff are subject to viewing the vehicle and should not be construed as a contract. The condition of your vehicle must be confirmed by a member of our valuation team prior to purchase. In some cases, this may mean that we can increase the offer we originally made, however in some circumstances, it may be necessary for us to reduce the valuation.

"At Sell or Scrap My Car Today we always carry out an on-site inspection of the vehicle before we confirm our offer price to buy your used vehicle. If we decide that it's value has been affected by any aspect of its condition or history, including any unusual feature or customisation that's been made to the vehicle, which we were not informed about we reserve the right to modify the valuation offered to you! Rest assured that any car or vehicle scrapped will be done with full environmental considerations. We are happy to collect your vehicle from Harlow, Chelmsford, London or Cambridge."
