About Auto Trader
*Based on a survey of 5,949 people who have sold cars in the past two years, of which 2,734 people sold via Auto Trader or Webuyanycar.com which are the relevant channels for the purpose of this claim. Car buying sites are online providers of 'convenience car sales' methods who will provide an instant online quote for your vehicle and will purchase cars of any age, make or model, without the seller being required to advertise the vehicle through classified advertising channels.The difference between what each car was sold at and the actual valuation of the car at the time of sale is calculated by comparing the difference between the stated sold price of each car in the survey and the Auto Trader Guide Valuation for each car at the time of sale. The average difference is then calculated for each of (1) all cars in the survey sold via Auto Trader, and (2) all cars in the survey sold via Webuyanycar.com, and compared to produce the figure quoted. All sellers of cars up to 15 years old giving information required for Auto Trader Guide Valuation. Auto Trader's Guide Valuation is an award winning service providing an accurate reflection of the live retail market. Our valuations are based on over 1.9 million vehicles each day, including 90,000 vehicle updates and an average of 19,000 vehicles added or removed from Auto Trader. Coupled with data from circa 450,000 trade used car listings every day, as well as additional dealer forecourt and website data.**Google Analytics data, monthly average from April - Sept 2019
