Discover a car's value* in seconds

Whether you're buying or selling a car, you'll want to find out its real value.

Our free valuation tool gives you an up-to-date price based on the car and its mileage.

  • Find out a car's value, whether it's being sold on the forecourt, as a private sale, or if it's being traded in.
  • Our free valuation tool gives a car's price instantly.
  • All you need to know is the car's number plate and mileage.

The valuation report will tell you:

  • Details of the car - its registration date, average mileage based on its age, the colour
  • Original market value - the retail price of the car when new
  • Prices for selling privately - both in excellent and poor condition
  • Trade-in price - how much you'd be offered for it as a part-exchange
  • Forecourt price - how much you could expect to pay for it if buying from a dealer

Here's an example of what a valuation report looks like:

Why should I get a car valuation?

Together with our partners HPI, our free car valuation report gives you an idea of the market value of your car. Whether you're buying, selling or part-exchanging, it pays to do your research so you don't get stung financially:

  • When buying a car, you want to make sure you're not paying over the odds and getting a good deal for your money.
  • If you're selling a car, knowing how much to ask for it isn't always straightforward. Undervaluing a car could mean you losing out some of the cash value while overvaluing could make it a hard sell.
  • If you're thinking of part-exchanging, you don't want to feel pressured into accepting an offer without knowing if it's a good price or not.
