How Does Citton Cars Conduct a Car Valuation?

Getting your car valued can be quite a daunting process. Everyone wants their car to be worth more, but this may not always be the case. If the car is not the concern, then it might be the person valuing your car. You have to be well-informed about your car if you are going to get your car valued. You must know what it is worth, what you are willing to accept, and what the actual value of your car is.

Three important factors must be considered when conducting an effective and accurate car valuation. These include:

  • The retail price of the car: In order to conduct a proper car valuation, you have to know the starting price of the car. This will inform the selling price because the value of the car will inevitably decrease from the starting price. It will further depend on how old the car is, how much damage there is, and what the mileage is.
  • The condition of the vehicle: How does the vehicle look? How old is it? Is it clean? Does it have marks, scratches, and other issues that could potentially devalue its price? It is normal to have some wear and tear and it is to be expected that this would decrease the price of the vehicle. The extent of the damages will influence the selling price.
  • The mileage: At Citton Cars, when considering whether to buy your car, we take the mileage into consideration. On a practical level, the older the car and the more kilometres the car has driven, the shorter the lifespan of the car. This is why we do not buy cars that have more than 150 000km on them. We must ensure that we are offering potential buyers the best deals and, once the mileage exceeds that number, the quality of the car is compromised, which influences the selling price of the vehicle.
