    Most accurate way to value a car?

    Have a list of 30 cars (to include mileage, age, registration, features etc) from work who are selling off some company cars and I am wondering the best way to work out whether the price quoted is a good deal? Nothing like we buy any car as they undervalue. Cheers.

    Parkers used to be pretty good

    evans halshaw work the same as webuyanycar but generally stick to their values, at least for newer cars

    Most accurate possible way is to see what similar models with similar mileage are selling for on Autotrader.
    There you see what they are actually selling for. Not a theoretical price.

    eBay, search model and year and look at SOLD cars by private sellers.

    You can create a draft listing on Autotrader, input reg no, mileage etc and it will tell you the average asking price, but as said above, what they sell for is a different matter, but its a good indication of listings.

    Don't underestimate local demand, 4x4 in a rural area may be fetch more than in an urban area, and vice-versa for a small economical vehicle.

    Thanks for all the help guys. Have another ask post showing the full list of cars available. Would be much appreciated to get people's thoughts on which one they would recommend. Thanks again! hotukdeals.com/tag/ask…953

    problem is if they are over priced they don't usually sell and the ones that sell aren't sold for the asking price maybe around 5% to 15% less would be a good indicator of the value.

    Parkers , glass & auto trader are the main ones I would use for a valuation

    We buy any car usually give you a rock bottom trade price which is a good foundation, add 30% on top for a rough retail value. Also bear in mind that different locations also mean different prices.
