Our car values are based on the car being in a good condition – so it could have some minor wear and tear like small stains or scratches. If a car has no damage at all and is in an excellent condition, it's likely to be worth more than our guide price.
A car with a complete record of all services can be worth more than one that has some gaps in the service history.
Our car values assume the car has some minor damage, like a small stain on the back seat or scratch on the bumper. If the damage is any more significant than this, it's likely to reduce the value of the car.
If anything needs fixing, for example a indicator light or electric window doesn't work, it will have a negative impact on the car's value.
Our valuations assume a car is in good working order. If there isn't a vehicle book, or significant gaps in the records of services, it can reduce the value of a car.
