Helping you get the best price for your car

A car valuation is the best way to find out the value of your vehicle. Car valuations often take several factors such as mileage, previous owners and service history into account before resulting in a final price. You can value your car in seconds by simply entering your registration number here.

Getting an accurate estimate of your car’s value is essential if you are looking to sell your car, ensuring you get a fair price for the vehicle at resale. While many businesses offer quick and free car valuations, they often don’t take factors such as mileage, condition or previous owners into consideration, resulting in a valuation with little substance behind it. For visitors looking to value their car with an intention to sell, it’s also worth bearing in mind that many of the online services offering free car valuations do not offer a car buying service, making the whole process ultimately pointless!

With webuyanycar.com however, you can get an online car valuation that is just as quick, but by entering those extra details on the car’s condition and history you will receive a more accurate and reliable valuation, plus you can choose to sell at the end of the process if you’re happy with the valuation!

Your car value is determined after we collect various pieces of information about your car’s condition and history. Once we have these details, we quickly combine them with automotive industry data such as market value and demand, to provide you with your instant online car valuation.

It is because of this that no two vehicles are the same when it comes to car price valuations, as aspects such as mileage, previous owners, service history and physical condition are very likely to be unique to each vehicle entered into our system.

So, if you’re wondering “what’s my car worth?” you can get a quick and clear price for your car by simply entering your registration number into the box above, followed by a few essential details. You’ll then be presented with your online valuation, and can even book an appointment at your local webuyanycar.com branch if you’re looking for a no-hassle sale.

Remember, we give the most accurate car valuations possible using the information provided to us in our short online form, so be sure to be as specific as possible when it comes to the condition of your vehicle.

Our online car value calculator is incredibly quick and easy to use. To make sure you breeze through this quick and simple car valuation process, we recommend you have the following details to hand:

  • Your car’s registration number
  • The current mileage of your car
  • The number of previous owners your car has had
  • The service history records that you have (E.g. Full, part, none)
  • Your name
  • Your email address
  • Your postcode – to find your nearest branch
  • Your telephone number

To ensure you get the most accurate car value figure possible, our system may add a few additional questions depending on the car make and model you enter. For example, some models often come with a built-in SatNav system or leather seats, and by getting those extra details your valuation will be as accurate as possible, giving you a much more accurate final price.

Your car valuation is valid for 7 days meaning that you can visit one of our 200+ branches within 7 days and get the price that you were quoted online. Once you book your appointment and bring your car to branch one of our experienced VP’s (Vehicle Purchasers) will inspect your car to make sure it is in the condition you say it is.

Within this 7-day period, the car value we give you will remain unaffected by outside influencers such as market value and demand fluctuations, which can have a negative impact on the overall value of a car. This is especially useful for someone looking to sell their vehicle around the date of the annual ‘plate change’

Once you are happy with your car valuation and have booked your appointment, you’ll need to get your car documents in order.

Bringing all of the appropriate documentation along to your car valuation appointment allows us to cross reference the paperwork with the information on the website, and confirm how much your car is worth. This will also allow us to send the car for resale in the future with all of the accompanying paperwork, so the eventual new owner will have all the information they need on the car’s past. Here’s a handy checklist of items you should bring to the car valuation appointment:

  • Your car
  • V5 Logbook/reg certificate
  • Service history and MOT certificate
  • Both sets of car keys
  • Bank details
  • Finance settlement letter – if applicable
  • Extras including wheel locking nut, security codes for radio etc.

There are countless free car valuation calculators around and no doubt you have tried most of them. Each tool will more than likely give you a different price than the last one. That’s because many of the tools that offer to calculate how much your car is worth do not take a full range of factors into consideration. While many will request details relating to mileage or previous owners, the selection of details you can choose to submit is usually pretty thin, resulting in a lot of vague and unreliable car value estimates.

With webuyanycar.com however, you can opt to give a full breakdown of the history and condition of your car, adding in details of any existing cosmetic damage or operational issues. This will refine the valuation and ensure the final figure you receive is an accurate representation of how much your car is worth.

Having purchased well over 1 million cars, it’s fair to say we’ve had plenty of practice at delivering great free car valuations for our visitors. Remember, the more details you enter during your online valuation, the more accurate your final value estimate will be!

Car values often fluctuate up and down throughout the year, and there are several factors that can affect how much your car is worth. Such as…

Age depreciation

General age depreciation is usually the most impactful cause of a car losing its value over time. In many cases, a brand new car can lose as much as 35% of its initial value in the first year of ownership, and up to 50% over a period of three years.

However, certain makes and models suffer from age depreciation less than others, with some cars only suffering a depreciation of 15% in the first year.

Service History

It’s fair to say that anyone looking to buy a used car would want a good idea of how well the car has been looked after in the past, and most of this information comes from a vehicle’s service history log. The more information a buyer can have about the detailed service history of a car; the more confidence they can have when it comes to offering a fair price.

To be sure you can sell your vehicle for the best possible value, it’s worthwhile keeping all MOT & service documents, particularly if your vehicle has a full ‘approved’ service history from the car’s manufacturer.

Mileage

From a buyer’s perspective, mileage is an indication of how much a car has been used in relation to the year the car was made. For example, if a car that is 3 years old has a total mileage of 75,000 miles, we can deduct that the vehicle has travelled 25,000 miles a year, on average. This is more than double the UK average figure, and therefore the car would be worth less at resale as a result.

In most cases, the fewer total miles a car has accumulated over the years, the more value it will ultimately retain in this area, so striving to keep the mileage down when possible is a good way to hold on to your car’s value.

Car Size and Category

This is a lesser known fact, but the size and category of a vehicle can have a bearing on its resale value. Bigger cars such as 4x4s, or pricier luxury models often depreciate at a faster rate than smaller standard vehicles.

The main reason for this is down to the running and maintenance costs that come with these vehicles; not only do they require a lot more fuel over the years than vehicles with smaller engines, but they are often expected to be taken for more expensive ‘approved’ services each year.

These factors can make the car less appealing to a potential buyer during resale, and can therefore impact on the market value of a vehicle.

Manufacturer Warranty

Selling a vehicle that has an outstanding warranty from the manufacturer often results in a better price when calculating car value. Most cars have a standard manufacturer warranty of 3 years, but it’s becoming increasingly common for new cars to come with an extended warranty of up to 7 years.

This means it’s certainly worth checking the details of your initial warranty guarantee, it could well be an added bonus to the buyer and help you gain a higher vehicle valuation in the meantime.
