Part Exchange Valuation 

 

You may use Our Website to get an estimated and indicated valuation of Your existing vehicle. This is a calculation is based on the information You supply through Our Valuation Tool and using information gathered from Our valuation partner Autobiz. You are able to apply the equity funds from Your existing vehicle towards Your deposit for Your new vehicle.  Please note that there are limitations on the amount You can pay as a deposit towards Your new vehicle, which can range from 0 – 40% of a vehicle’s purchase price. 

In order to get a valuation, You will need to supply the registration number and current mileage of the vehicle to which the valuation relates (the “Information”). The Information will be shared with Autobiz.  

 

Any estimate provided does not comprise an offer to purchase Your vehicle by Us, any Retailer, PSA Finance or Vauxhall Finance and is not intended to be relied upon in respect of any application that You make for finance or order You place. It is indicative of the likely valuation and is not guaranteed or binding and may be subject to change. The valuation provided by Autobiz will be shared with and finalised by Your retailer when Your vehicle is inspected during Your appointment with Your retailer. 

 

This valuation will be subject to the retailer being provided with the following: 

  • all copies of the vehicle’s keys You have; 

  • appropriate proof of purchase (if requested by Us); 

  • the Vehicle’s service history (if any); 

  • the Vehicle’s MOT certificate (if any); 

  • the Vehicle’s user manuals (if any); and 

  • any accessories there may be such as a locking wheel nut, radio fascia or remote controls. 

In some instances, failure to provide these items may result in a reduction to the valuation offered to You by the Retailer 

The Retailer may also offer a further contribution towards Your existing vehicle. The valuation is valid for the day of inspection only, after which the Retailer reserves the right to offer a different valuation.  This may be lower than the valuation previously received. The equity from Your existing vehicle payable towards Your new vehicle may therefore be different from any initial indicative value. 

 

If there is any outstanding finance on Your existing vehicle, You will need to ensure that information submitted by You to Us relating to Your existing finance is accurate and up to date and provide Us with all relevant details including the contact details of Your existing finance provider.  Please note the online valuation will not take into account whether there is any outstanding finance on Your existing vehicle, therefore the equity from Your existing vehicle payable towards Your new vehicle may be different from any initial indicative valuation
