Where can I sell my five-year-old Astra?

I would like to buy a new car from Drive the Deal but need to pass on my current car, a 2008 Vauxhall Astra 1.4SXI with cruise control. It will be five years old in April. I'm presuming Drive The Deal don't do part exchange, so do you know of a reputable company that would take my car?

Sell it using www.sure-sell.info. This is a British Car Auctions private selling service and is the quickest, cleanest, safest and most reliable way to dispose of a new car. The car is sold in an auction hall to the highest bidder and if private buyers are present on the day or a trader has a specific order, the car can make more than trade price.
