CAR VALUATION

HOW BUY MY CAR
VALUES YOUR CAR


Home > Sell my car > Car Valuation
MILEAGE

Mileage is a very important factor in determining a car's value. In the UK the yearly average mileage is 12,000 miles. If your mileage is above this, the vehicle's value could be substantially reduced.

PREVIOUS OWNERS

As a general rule, a vehicle that has had more than one owner per year will be worth less than a vehicle that hasn't. Information on previous ownership can be found on your V5C document.

SERVICE HISTORY

A full and up-to-date service history, completed by a VAT registered dealer, is likely to make your vehicle's value higher than one that only has a partial service history.

MOT

Vehicles with a full MOT are more valuable than vehicles without. If your vehicle has failed an MOT it will require some work to make it roadworthy again. The amount of work needed will affect your final valuation.

COLOUR AND CONDITION

There's no real science behind it but some colours are simply more popular and desirable than others. This can have a slight impact on the valuation we provide.

INSURANCE WRITE-OFFS

If your vehicle has been involved in a collision, the insurance company may consider it a write-off, i.e. beyond economical repair. This will affect the valuation we provide. Please note that we perform a HPI on every vehicle we purchase and this will reveal whether the vehicle has been involved in any insurance claims.
