How we value your car
Enter your registration, mileage information and a few brief details online and we will provide you with a guide valuation range for your vehicle, in less than two minutes. That’s all it takes.
Our value guide prices are pretty accurate, but as our experts haven’t given your car the once over it is only a guide price range at this stage. What do the numbers mean? Well the lower price assumes your car is “below average” condition; and the higher price assumes it is in an “above average” condition. It’s not rocket science but as close as we can get as all of our prices utilise live data to determine the valuations.
To get a final valuation price for your car we’ll need you to come into one of our stores. This gives us the time to do a full appraisal and you the time to decide whether to part exchange your vehicle or just sell it to us. Each appraisal is backed up with a written offer that stays the same even if you don’t buy a car from us.
All that’s left to do is for you to make an appointment to bring your vehicle in for a final valuation either by calling us on or via Live Chat.
If you have a van, mobile home or motorbike you wish to trade in call us on and we will be able to give you a valuation over the phone.
How we value your car in-store
Most dealers and car supermarkets base their valuations on data that is weeks old, depending on trading conditions, this can give you inaccurate valuations. Our valuation tool provides real-time data achieved at auctions and gives you the true trade value of your vehicle.
When you come in with your vehicle our staff will give your car a health check and look in all the nooks and crannies using new state of the art hand held devices. After checking the vehicle condition, service history, MOT length, additional extras and general desirability in more detail, your car could be worth more than the initial valuation. Our process is 100% transparent so you can be confident that our valuation reflects the true value of your vehicle.
There is no other tool in the market like it. And because our valuations are so accurate you can choose your new car safe in the knowledge that you know exactly how much you need to budget for.
We will value your vehicle with no obligation, so why not give it a go? You have nothing to lose.
Once you have filled in your vehicle details using our quick valuation tool, you will immediately be able to see what your vehicle could be worth. The valuation will be confirmed to you via email and is valid for seven days. Whilst we would love to see you drive away in a new vehicle from CarShop, there’s no need to worry, we’ll buy your car even if you don’t buy one of ours.
