How is my car valued when I sell it?

Get valuation

We all think our cars are worth more than someone wants to pay for them. But how does the price vary, depending on the car’s factors?

The buying price of a car can range entirely on a range of things. Such as:

  • The make, model, age and colour
  • Its service history and MOT due date
  • The mileage
  • How many previous owners the cars had
  • The current supply and demand for similar cars
  • Its condition
old vs new car

Pretty straightforward, but your car’s condition should be your main priority. The condition impacts how much work we'll need to do to get it ready for sale at Car Store, therefore impacts how much we can offer you. If your car is looked after, the valuation will run smoother and more accurate when you bring your car in for your Sell My Car appointment.

If you’re unsure about the valuation process, don't hesitate to get in touch.
