HOW TO VALUE YOUR CAR FOR SALE OR PART EXCHANGE 

 

When the time comes to sell your car, you’ll need to know how to value it. There are a number of different methods you can use to find out how much your car is worth. For a start, there are several websites, magazines and specialists in the automotive sector that can provide a quick and personalised estimate of what your car could be worth in the second-hand market. This estimate might come at a small cost but is sometimes free of charge. 

 

With these online rating tools, you’ll likely get a couple of different estimates which will give you some ideas on budget parameters, which you can of course support with your own knowledge and experience of what your car might be worth. 

 

So, if you need to value your car but aren’t sure what you’ll need to know, read on for SPOTiCAR’s guide to valuing your vehicle.

HOW IS THE ESTIMATE WORKED OUT? 

 

SPOTiCAR’s estimate is based on a couple of factors, such as: 

 

  • Market observations and recent transactions involving vehicles of an equivalent resale value to yours; for example, vehicles of the same model, same version, same engine; diesel or petrol, for example; same gearbox, same year of registration and equivalent mileage. 

 

  • The current condition of your vehicle as you entered it in the tool.
