Factors affecting your car's value

Getting the most out of your free car valuation

A car's value is ordinarily decided by the year it was made, its mileage (how far it's been driven) and other factors.

Car valuations offer a good guide price, but each car is unique and factors like an individual car's mileage can increase or decrease the car's value.

Improving your car's value

Sometimes, factors like your location and the time of year can have an impact on how well a car sells – for example convertibles normally sell better in warm weather than in winter.

Regardless of when and where you sell your car, ensuring you have created a good advert and that your car is well presented should help improve your chances of a successful sale. Check out our tips on selling your car here.
