Preparing Your Vehicle For Sale

Clean your car

The better your car looks, the more it will appeal to prospective buyers.

Is everything working?

If there are any mechanical issues, it might be worth having them remedied before we check your car.

Is there any damage?

The more unblemished a car is, the more it’ll be worth – consider paying for repairs before selling your vehicle.

Gather together your car’s service records together

Up-to-date service history and MOT information will not only enhance the value of your car, they’re required at the point of sale. It’s also worth ensuring your vehicle’s MOT is up-to-date.

Gather your car’s keys together

Ensure you have all relevant keys with you.

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.
