That's awesome, thanks. CAP are as much an industry as glass

DEFO COLD FROM ME. They are not interested in old cars. I have a 20 and 23 year old cars. Easy to run, maintain, insure and looked after a lot better than most cars on the road today, yet we are ignored, well once again COLD FROM ME.

That one is shi*e compared to the OPs.

It wont let you put a mileage over 100000 for one and wants all your details before giving you a valuation.

Hot.

the cap and glass guides are whst the dealers use.

handy cheers

Sorry its cold for me. Thought both were rubbish. OPs took me to Fords which gave me a valuation based on a trade in and queensclose's wouldnt even recognize the registration I entered and yes it was correct. Maybe I missed something?........

£180 average for my Jeep, as above the wheels would sell for more then that! In fact the scrap value is twice that!!

£500 ! thats just wrong !

I could get 3 times the value if I sold privately! Heat though.

This is the proper CAP valuation site.

It gives you various valuations based on what method you buy/sell. Still think it under values it a bit but far closer then the original post.

Sorry Op not having a go and do appreciate you bring it to my attention. Wouldn't have looked into the CAP thing if you hadn't

£600 for mine I could easily sell it for £1200.

Don't paste cold just because you don't like the valuation - as posted above CAP and Glasses guide are the trade price guides that the motor trade uses - so these are the same prices that the dealers have access to and its always handy to be able to have access to that knowledge.

The Ford site posted by the Op is a "Trade in" valuation and that will always be lower than the retail price or the private sale price - but its still the same trade-in price that the dealer will get when he does his valuation - so its valuable info.

The CAP site linked to by Midiman in his post is a sales price - which is why its higher on a like for like comparison - but again - its still an official Motor Trade valuation rather than one that's done unofficially by a car magazine which may bear no resemblance to the real world.

We all like sites that tell us our cars are worth more money, but that doesn't mean that we'd really get that value for the car if we sold it.

Are you talking about old in respect of 'old bangers' or 'classics'?

Trade In Clean: £250 - £270
Trade In Average: £180 - £190
Trade In Below: £110 - £120
