Increase Price

What improves the value of my car?

High specification models

In a busy resale market, the more desirable elements your car has compared to other models, the better. Optional extras like technology upgrades, leather interiors, factory-optioned body styling, limited edition paint work all increase the potential value of your car.

Good mpg

A car that is economical to run will always go down well, especially for those needing to do long journeys. The efficiency of a car will inevitably reduce with age, but regular servicing can be a great indication that the car will keep close to its original from-factory mpg.

Low mileage

An advantage you can make the most of is low mileage. Take a look at other models of your same year and check how your mileage compares to theirs. If you do a lot of miles, keep this in mind when deciding on the best time to sell your car.

Full service history

Reassurance that the car has been well looked after comes from the service history. Keep the service history without gaps and completed by reputable providers, keep the MOTs up to date, correct any advisories and you will be able to prove the car has been looked after in your care.

In-date warranty

A valid warranty adds value for any future owner, especially when it comes to a used car. A warranty will give you peace of mind that your car is covered throughout your ownership, but also that it can give you value back when it comes to sell it too.

Decrease Price

What lessens the value of my car?

Bad condition

Should your car suffer from poor bodywork, a worn and torn interior or rough mechanical conditions, it might be worth getting all or some of these checked out for repair. They all play a role in decreasing the value of your car in the eyes of a new buyer.

Previous owners

The higher the number of previous owners, the less likely others will be to buy your car. If there are several previous owners, questions start to be asked about why the car has changed hands so frequently. It’s also more likely that the car will have poorer quality or missing service history.

Higher mileage

Having higher mileage than most similar models of its age counts against your car’s value. It’s worth bearing this in mind before it happens. Though, if it’s unavoidable, be sure to look after the car’s repairs, and keep the service history up to date and complete.

Increased age

If your car is an older model, it will usually be less desirable than the newest and improved models available on the market. There are some exceptions to this, perhaps they have desirable qualities that have been replaced within the newer model, but it is the general rule.

Patchy service history

Missing or inconsistent service history doesn’t paint a reliable picture of a well-looked-after car. Keep this in mind when buying any car, as it will impact resales. If it’s something you can rectify, such as contacting your local garage for a receipt from some past work on the car, it’s worth doing.
