Step 1: We ask you to confirm that the car we have found is indeed your car.

Step 2: If you have any additional specification, e.g. Leather, Satellite Navigation etc. fitted to your car then we ask you to tick the appropriate boxes.

If this is fully up to date and completed by a VAT registered dealer than it is fair to assume the value of your car will be higher than a car with only a partial service history.


A vehicle with full MOT is more valuable than a vehicle with no MOT. If your vehicle has failed an MOT then it will require some work to make the car road worthy again; the level of work required to convert this to a pass will affect your

final valuation.

Colour & Condition

Some colours are more popular and desirable than others. This can have a slight impact on the valuation we provide.

Insurance Write Off

Essentially this terms means that the vehicle is beyond economical repair. This most certainly will affect the value we provide. Please note that we perform a HPI on every vehicle we purchase and this report clearly indicates to us whether the vehicle has been involved in any insurance claims.
