Factors that affect your car’s value

How much your car is worth depends on a range of factors, including its age, mileage, condition, and general seasonal variances. Below are the main factors that affect car value:

 
  • Make & model

    Certain models are more desirable and retain their value better than others. If you have a car that is in demand then it could be worth more than you think.

  • The condition of your car

    If there is any damage to the car, the car’s value will be lower than a car with no imperfections. This can include scratches, dents, stone chips and other wear & tear.

  • The car’s mileage

    A car with lower mileage will retain more of its value than a car with above-average mileage.

  • Service history

    A full-service history shows that the car has been well-maintained and means that it will be worth more than a car with service history gaps.

  • Number of previous owners

    Car’s with fewer previous owners are generally worth more due to many owners being a potential indication of unsolved problems with the vehicle.

  • Manufacturer’s warranty

    Selling a car with a manufacturer’s warranty provides reassurances to the buyer and can increase the value of the car.

  • Optional extras

    Some extras such as heated seats and upgraded alloys could improve the desirability and value of your car.

  • Current market prices

    Market prices fluctuate based on supply and demand. We use live market data to give you an accurate price at the time of the valuation.

 

Car valuation FAQs

 

Our car valuation tool only requires a few details about you and your car to provide an accurate price. Before you start your online valuation we would recommend having the following details on hand:

  • Your reg plate
  • Your car’s mileage
  • Your name
  • Your email address
  • Your postcode
  • Your telephone number
  • Any damage to your car

Multiple factors impact your car’s value, some of which are within your control and some which aren’t. If you’re looking to get the highest price for your car you should consider the following:

  • Repair any damage - ensuring your car is in good mechanical and aesthetic condition makes it more appealing to buyers, which can increase the value of your car.
  • Have an up-to-date MOT - if you have less than 6 months remaining on your current MOT, it can have a negative impact on how much your car is worth due to the new owner having to get an MOT shortly after purchasing the car.
  • Keep all service records - being able to show that your car has been serviced at regular intervals by a reputable garage will show buyers that the car has been looked after and can improve the value.
  • Clean your car - a car that is clean is more appealing and can ensure that no dirt is confused as a deeper scratch or dent.

Our online car valuation is the same as you will get at your local branch providing all of the details you’ve entered match the condition of the car. If you fail to disclose any information such as scratches or you enter the incorrect mileage, this may impact the final offer.

By selling your car to webuyanycar.com, we can transfer the money into your bank the same day, which can help you get a bigger discount on your next car. Before you part-exchange your car at a dealership, you should value your car in less than 60 seconds by entering your reg and a few additional details.

Modifications can impact what a car is worth both positively and negatively. For example, tinted windows may make the car more aesthetically pleasing which increases the value. On the other hand, some modifications may negatively impact the value of a car because there is no guarantee that they’ve been carried out to a high standard and they could invalidate the car’s warranty.

Modifications to a car can both positively and negatively impact what it is worth at resale. Some modifications may make the car more aesthetically pleasing, which can result in the value being higher as it appeals more to a car enthusiast. However, modifications can also have a negative impact on the resale value as it adds more risk for the buyer and could be hiding previous damage. Modifications to the car’s mechanics also increase the risk involved, as there’s no guarantee they’ve been carried out to a high standard.

We really do buy any car regardless of the number of miles the car has covered. However, a car that has covered more miles is likely to have more wear and tear, which will mean the resale value of the car may be lower than an identical car that has covered fewer miles.
