What factors affect the car's value?

Why is the car valuation check showing less value of my car as compared to other similar models? Well, there are certain factors which are in demand in the market. If your vehicle is lacking them, you get a low price for it. Let us see what the factors are.

  • Age and mileage – New cars have high demand in the market, but only when it has low mileage number. Mileage is a significant factor; you will get a fantastic return from your car if it is down.
  • Previous owners – You get a high price for a car with fewer previous owners because more previous owners lead to the suspicion that the vehicle may have some problems.
  • Damage – Car with no damage is attention-grabbing and gives you an edge over other similar models. So, the cars in excellent condition with minimal to no markings get a higher position.
  • Service history - The service history record can skyrocket a car's value because it is proof that the car is serviced regularly. Such cars grab the attention of potential buyers quickly.
  • Car's colour – Some colours are desirable as compared to others. Mainly, it depends on the car's model. So, the car with desirable colour will perform better in the market.
  • Modifications – if you like a particular modification in the car, it does not mean others will also. So, generally, unmodified cars get a higher value. The modified vehicles may also put off potential buyers because most insurers refuse to provide cover for them.
  • Updated MOT – Not updated car documents such as a missing MOT can highly affect the car's value. So, it is better to keep updating them.

Can I get a car valuation for free?

Yes, you can easily find a free car valuation tool with many providers. But the real question is, do they provide an accurate price or just a close-to-accurate figure for the cars? Let us find out.

If it is your first time checking car value online, the free car valuation tool is an excellent option, but you should know its limitations; It is a basic check that compares age, makes, and model with the recent market price. They skip the most important factors that affect the cost of the car, i.e., specific trim level, mileage, and depreciation. You must add the car’s exact mileage, optional equipment, and trim level for more accurate pricing. But it is only possible with a paid car valuation tool.

Plus, you get only two-band valuation with the free valuation check, while a paid valuation tool provides three estimates; private sale price, dealer price, and franchise dealer price. The auto experts get even better because you get terrific five estimates that include dealer forecourt price, private clean, trade retail, private average, part exchange, auction price, trade average, and trade poor.

Apart from this, free and paid valuation have vast databases difference. A paid tool collects and combines the data from auction sites, car advertisements, ex-fleet, dealer websites, and leasing vehicle values. Also, it considers depreciation costs for specific cars and dealer transactions to present you with the most accurate selling or buying price of the vehicles.

So, if you are serious and want to get an entirely accurate price, you should order our 5-bands paid valuation check, which will cost you £2.99 only.
