Value my car top tips


Some brands are better at holding their value than others and a few simple checks to see how much a brand new equivalent would cost, will help you understand how much value a car will lose over time


The better condition your car, the better your odds of retaining its value when you sell. Regular servicing and maintenance is the key to this


Whilst cleaning can really help to maximise the value of a car, great pictures are also very important. Car photos should be in a well-lit, tidy area. Pictures should be taken from a wide variety of angles to maximise the appeal of the vehicle. Make sure you include both interior and exterior shots


Generally, cars with a lower mileage achieve a better sale value than those with high mileage, due to less wear and tear on the vehicle over time

Release Date

The registration date of the vehicle gives a true indication of the age of the car, and its value. New cars are released twice a year, so its worth checking the month of registration to establish the exact age of the vehicle


Certain car colours can retain their value better than others. However, in terms of the paintwork, the finish is probably the most important factor. Popular car colours can help you retain value. According to The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, white was the most popular car colour in 2014.
