How do you value my car?
Our online car valuation tool is simple to use, but what's going on behind the scenes is actually rather complex.
Our system looks at data for hundreds of thousands of cars, taking into account a variety of factors to determine a fair value, which is then confirmed by one of our associates at your nearest CarStore Centre.
Car Valuation Process
Market Value Obtained
Once you've entered your car's details, our system looks up the market ("book") valuation for that exact make, model and specification of car, which is provided by an expert third party service.
Adjusted for Age and Mileage
After we've found your car in the database, adjustments (either up or down) are made based on the age and mileage of your car.
Service History and Condition
The level of service history, length of MOT and number of owners can also affect the price we offer. The valuation is further adjusted based on the condition rating you've provided.
Confirming Your Valuation
Online valuations by CarStore are subject to an in-person appraisal by one of our associates. This is simply to check that the condition of the car is as described.
