What affects a car's value?

The guide prices we provide give you a good idea what the car might be worth, depending on how you’re buying or selling it. However, many factors can influence the price, including:
Overall condition Number of owners Optional extras Color Service history Modifications Rarity of model Extras included in the deal

How are valuations calculated?

Hello from AutoMe bot. I use AI power to analyze data from a number of sources, including:
AutoMe ads
The adverts on AutoMe and dealer websites.
Vehicle sales
Price data from major car sales around the country.
Public data
Information collected from publicly available adverts.
Since the used-car market changes so quickly, the valuations are updated every day. The bot works all hours analyzing tons of data to bring you an accurate estimate valuation for your car. Bot is very young and learning. So, he may not be able to get valuations for particular makes and models. We apologize in advance. But this is only temporary, as he learns very fast.
The valuation price is only an estimate. The actual value of your car can vary on different factors.

Things that can increase a car's value

  • Extra features

    Any optional extras that make a car stand out, for example a rear-facing camera to help with parking or an in-built sat nav and multimedia system, can fetch a higher selling price.

  • Desirable color

    Some colors are more popular than others, so a car in a sought-after color can be worth more.

  • No damage

    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.

  • Full service history

    A car with a complete record of all services can be worth more than one that has some gaps in the service history.

Things that can decrease a car's value

  • Significant wear and tear

    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.

  • Parts not working

    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.

  • Gaps in the service history or no vehicle book

    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.

  • Lots of previous owners

    Usually, the fewer owners the more a car is worth. So, if a car has been sold many times before it can reduce the value.
