Trade-In Appraisal

How Much is My Vehicle Worth?

When considering whether to trade in your car or sell it privately, it becomes crucial to have a comprehensive understanding of its value to attain your desired price. Our online car appraisal process is tailored for this purpose, involving a thorough inspection carried out by a skilled car value appraiser to establish the selling price of your vehicle. This section provides an overview of the online car appraisal process and highlights the key factors that influence your car's value.

What determines The Trade-In Value?

During the evaluation of your vehicle, these factors will impact the appraised car value and trade-in value.

Age: The older your car, the lower its value, lowering your trade-in value.

Make and Model: Some brands and models retain value better than others.

Trim: Your vehicle's trim level, engine type, or standard features like the number of doors, colour, and available options significantly impact the overall trade-in car value.

Options: Certain features of a car can positively or negatively impact its value. For example, leather seats hold more excellent value than standard cloth seats, and power windows are considered more desirable than manual ones. Other options, such as the type of transmission, navigation features, sunroofs, and the type of wheels and tires, also significantly influence the car's overall value.

Condition: A car's value is negatively affected by the presence of stains, rust spots, dents, or improper repairs, whereas a well-maintained and cared-for vehicle will have a positive impact on its value.

While an appraisal provides the most accurate assessment of your vehicle's worth, there are specific steps you can take to improve your car value, resulting in a higher trade-in or sale price. Undertaking necessary repairs can significantly enhance your vehicle's worth.
