What affects the value of your car?

Our visual inspection takes into account the overall condition of your vehicle, as this affects its value. Below, you’ll learn what we mean by ‘showroom condition’, ‘average condition’ and ‘poor condition’. This will help you to understand why we have made a particular offer.

Three Stars

Showroom condition

An example of Showroom Condition is a vehicle that needs no reconditioning work. Paint work is free from scratches, chips and dents, interior/exterior trim and wheels are unmarked. Tyres need to have a minimum of 6mm tread across the face of the tyre. The vehicle must be in the original factory condition with all keys and a documented service history, warranted mileage with a minimum 6 month MOT and maximum of two owners.

Two Stars

Average Condition

An example of Average Condition is a vehicle that may need a small amount of reconditioning work, including mechanical and/or paintwork, relative to the vehicle age and mileage. The vehicle will have a documented service history and a valid MOT certificate.

One Star

Poor Condition

An example of Below Average Condition is a vehicle that will require mechanical and/or bodywork repairs. The vehicle may have a limited service history.

How can I prepare my vehicle for sale?

Clean your car

It may seem obvious but getting out a bucket and sponge and making your car look as good as new will help it to appear more appealing.

Keep your service records safe

Ensure that you have all service history and MOT information to hand as not only does it help with the value but will need to be provided with the car at the point of sale. It would also be a good idea to have an up to date MOT carried out too.

Check everything working?

Check all the electrics to ensure that it is all working correctly. If not, it might be an idea to see whether it is financially viable to get elements repaired prior to trying to sell your car.

Repair damage

if you have damage on the car you may wish to consider getting it repaired prior to getting your car valued.

Keep mileage low

the lower the mileage the better, so if you can restrict your driving time to keep your miles lower this will help.

Find your spare keys

it is always helpful to have two keys so get them ready too.

Frequently Asked Questions​​

What will I need to hand to get my car valued?


For your online valuation, all you’ll need is your vehicle registration number and mileage, and your basic contact information. Enter those into our form and you’ll see a valuation displayed on-screen.

Does a manufacturer’s warranty affect value?


​If your vehicle has been maintained according to manufacturer guidelines, thus ensuring the warranty has remained valid, this may positively impact its value. Contact us today to learn more.

How does the number of previous owners affect value?


​The number of previous owners may influence the vehicle’s value when considered alongside its age and mileage. With more previous owners, for example, the car may have covered more miles, which would affect its value.

How can mileage affect value?


​The more miles a vehicle has covered, the more general wear and tear its parts will have undergone. This will in turn affect the price, as vehicles needing mechanical repairs have a lower value.

Can I avoid depreciation?


Depreciation is not something that can be avoided, but it can be mitigated. You can preserve a car’s resale value by ensuring it is regularly serviced, and keeping the exterior and interior in good condition.

Will the colour of my car impact on value?


Yes – used car buyers generally prefer colours such as grey, black and white over vivid colours such as orange, green, or yellow. Since demand for brightly coloured cars is lower, they typically claim a lower resale value.

What do I do if I have a private registration plate?


If your vehicle has a private registration plate, you have several options. You can either sell the car with the plate, transfer the registration to your new vehicle, or put the private plate on retention and decide later whether you’d like to keep it or sell it.
