What is my car worth?

When it comes to selling your trusty old motor (or even if you’re just curious about its value), we’ve all thought at one time or another, ‘How much is my car worth?’. You could take a stab in the dark and do your own research, or you could get a highly accurate figure from our professionals in just a couple of minutes.

instant car valuation and getting a fair price

There are so many cowboys out there that it’s difficult to know whether the valuation that you are given for your car is representative of the current state of the market. Here at BigWantsYourCar.com, we don’t believe in ripping you off. Once you’ve entered your car’s registration details and sent us a few photos, you’ll receive a valuation that’s guaranteed for 7 days.

Once we’ve given you a price based on the information that you send us, we stick to it. No trying to lowball you once we see the car in person. Our word is our bond.

Car valuation check FAQs

How do I find out how much my car is worth?

At BigWantsYourCar.com, all you need to arm yourself with is your car’s registration number and a couple of photos and we’ll do the car valuation for you – all for free. You can get your car valuation in the time that it takes to flick the kettle on and make a brew. You don’t even have to leave your home.

  1. Enter your registration number in the box at the top of this page
  2. Provide us with a few photos

We’ll take care of the rest. Based on this information you’ll get a valuation from us that’s valid for 7 days, so you’ve got plenty of chances to mull the offer over. Once you’ve seen how good our valuations are, though, you won’t be turning it down!

How much is my car worth?

When you say to us, ‘value my car,’ there are a number of factors that we will take into consideration to determine a fair price. These include:

  • Make and model
  • Age
  • Current mileage
  • Overall condition
  • Wear and tear (scuffs, scratches, dents, rust etc)
  • Service history
  • Specification and modifications
  • Number of previous owners
  • What fuel it uses
  • The current state of the second-hand car market

Obviously, the better condition the car is in and the more paperwork that you have to back up the car’s history, the higher the valuation will be. A car that is minty fresh and has all the relevant paperwork will always fetch much more than a car that has been abused and has no service history to speak of.

What paperwork will increase the value of my car valuation?

If you have the car’s V5C registration document, MOT certificate, receipts for any work that you’ve had done, and any/all service history then this will definitely have a positive impact on the valuation that you are given.

Once I find out what my car’s worth, will my car valuation change?

No. Other companies may give you a car valuation and then try to short-change you once they’ve got you interested, but that’s not the Big way. Once we’ve given you a valuation, that figure is final, and you get a full week to consider it and do your research before you accept.
