About this deal

Remember that mileage and [some] options can make a significant difference to how much your car is worth – sometimes adding hundreds or even thousands of pounds to a value, so it can pay to get a fully adjusted car valuation. Q: I have a classic car – can you provide a valuation? Sorry, we have no data on the valuation of caravans or motorhomes. Q: How does mileage affect a car’s value? Normally we allow about 50-60% of the original option value after the first year. However, after five years the value of options is reduced to around 20-25% and at around 7 years, options add little or no value to the vehicle [ but can make it easier to sell]. At Parkers, our car valuation guide only lists the options that do increase a car’s value – helping you to calculate a more realistic price. Make sure you get the best deal by getting an accurate valuation for your car. The Parkers car valuation calculator is a simple-to-use and extremely powerful tool. It gives you independent prices and accurate values on all UK registered cars from [and including] 2003/53 plate to the most current 2023/73 plates, using results from a massive number of transactions. Our team of independent experts visit hundreds of car dealers and auctions every month to research the actual selling price of thousands of cars. A: Even though they can make a car more attractive to a potential buyer, not all added options fitted to a vehicle will guarantee an increase in value when you come to sell. Options such as body kits, cosmetic additions, LED headlamps, headlamp washers, uprated stereo and in some cases alloy wheels, don’t really enhance the price – but where they do, you’ll be given the chance to select them when performing a valuation. The added value of options reduces considerably as the car’s age increases.

Registered office: Media House, Peterborough Business Park, Lynch Wood, Peterborough PE2 6EA and H Bauer Publishing, Company number: LP003328; Category D – Now ‘CAT N’ (Non-structural). A damaged vehicle which the insurer has decided not to repair possibly because it falls within the ‘BER’ ‘Beyond Economical Repair’ category. The normal problem being, that to replace any parts would be more expensive than the car is worth and the decision is generally based on economic criteria rather than the severity of the damage. However, the car could be repaired and returned to the road. One of the most commonly asked questions by car buyers in the UK is ‘how much is my car worth?’ Here you will be able to find that out using industry-trusted pricing data. A: Used pricing is updated monthly which normally happens during the first week of the month. Q: When I value my car, what is included in the report? A: Absolutely, yes. We’re more than happy to assist with any questions you have regarding the valuation of your vehicle although we don’t offer a one-to-one telephone support service.A: The standard free valuation is based on average mileage and standard equipment for that model. The free valuations are available for most cars made from 2003/53 plate onwards based on average mileage and standard specification. These can be used as a guide to buy, sell or trade-in. Valuations are for UK spec cars only – sorry we don’t value any imports. Fast and easy ✅ Negotiate with confidence ✅ Peace of mind How can a Parkers car valuation help you? We cover vans and light commercials from and including 2008/08 plate [March 2008] onwards currently to 2023/73.

A: When you get a free valuation from Parkers, you get two ranges of values based on a standard mileage and equipment tally. You are presented with the private value, which is the typical price you’ll pay for a car in a private sale. What you can reasonably expect is a car with some or full-service history, few or no mechanical issues, decent bodywork and a reasonable amount of MoT left on it. You also get an expected dealer price, for which you can expect a car with a warranty, and for it to have no major mechanical, bodywork or paint issues. An independent valuation from the Parkers Car Price Guide will help you get the best deal whether you are buying or selling your car. If you’re looking to buy or sell a car, the most important thing you need to know is what it’s worth. For more information, you can view our FAQs, below. Buying a car A: Unfortunately, not. We perform many 1000s of valuations every day and it would be impractical to save each one of them. If you obtain a valuation, save the data on your own device so you can access it at a later date if need be. Q: Does Parkers still publish the monthly car price guide or Parkers Plus? A: Category C – Now ‘CAT S’ (Structural). An extensively damaged vehicle which the insurer has decided not to repair, but which could be repaired and returned to the road. The DVLA will require confirmation that the vehicle is now roadworthy and repairs carried out to a minimum standard. There is a certain amount of paperwork involved and a VIC Inspection and ‘Vehicle Identity Form’ must be completed. However, if you want the exact spec of the car you want reflected in the valuation (for instance if the car has optional extras or an above- or below-average mileage), you can get that from one of our premium paid-for valuations. Q: Can I get a valuation on my car from previous years – i.e ‘What was my car worth in June 2018?‘
