Car Valuation Website Comparison

3 Flares Filament.io 3 Flares ×

With the forever growing trend of car valuation and car sales via the Internet we wanted to do a comparison of the main car valuation websites to see what sellers could expect and which ones give you the best price for your car.

We made a list of the UK’s top ten most popular cars and did car valuations based on those cars:

  • Ford Fiesta
  • Audi A3
  • Audi A4
  • BMW 1 Series
  • BMW 3 Series
  • Ford Focus
  • Mercedes-Benz C Class
  • Vauxhall Astra
  • Vauxhall Corsa
  • Volkswagen Golf

Most car valuation sites start with asking you to enter your car’s registration (from which they will gather the make, model and other specifics) and ask for the cars mileage. Other criteria some ask for is about extras, interior, owners etc. we used the same for these for each car; owned from new, full service history, no sat nav and half leather interior. Below you can see two tables showing the comparisons for each car and website*. The websites used are:

Car Buy Sites with Free Valuation (based on site valuation for purchase):

  • WeWantAnyCar.com
  • WeBuyAnyCar.com
  • WeBuyCarsToday.com

Car Sites with Free Valuation (based on dealer price):

  • WhatCar.com
  • Parkers.co.uk (Prices based on an average mileage of 70,000 miles)
  • Glass.co.uk (no mileage entered)
  • Cap.co.uk

*Please note these are guide prices and are usually only guaranteed for 7 days.
