How much is a car worth? It’s a question that those of us who have a car will ask on a fairly regular basis but finding an accurate and free car valuation isn’t always easy. Well, as is so often the case, Auto Express has the answer. Welcome to our free car valuation tool.

How do I value my car?

  1. ‌Input‌ ‌the‌ ‌registration‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌car‌ ‌you‌ ‌want‌ ‌to‌ ‌value.‌
  2. Complete‌ ‌the‌ ‌form‌ ‌with‌ ‌your‌ ‌name‌ ‌and‌ ‌email‌ ‌address.‌
  3. Get‌ ‌your‌ ‌free‌ ‌car‌ ‌valuation‌ ‌right‌ ‌here‌ ‌and‌ ‌in‌ ‌your‌ ‌inbox.‌

The process couldn’t really be easier. All you need is the registration number of the car you want your free valuation for - this could be your own car or a car you’re thinking about buying.

Input the details and you’ll be asked a couple of questions about when you’re looking to buy or sell the car. From there, fill in your name and email address and your valuation will appear on screen instantly and in your email inbox shortly after. The whole process should take seconds.

Auto Express car valuations are brought to you in partnership with HPI, the UK’s leading car valuation service and their data is constantly updated to reflect the current market value of every car on sale in the UK.

Once you’ve received the valuation you can fine-tune it to ensure it perfectly reflects the car you’re looking to buy or sell. Adjust the mileage and select ‘trade-in’, ‘forecourt’ or ‘private sale’ to find out exactly the value of the car in each of the sales scenarios you might encounter.

Your personalised valuation email contains a link to your valuation page. You can revisit later to adjust the parameters and get an updated valuation for the car. If you need a valuation of another vehicle, simply start the short process again with that car’s registration number.

Knowing the precise value of your car is a hugely powerful tool when you come to sell it or buy a new one. You’ll be in a far stronger position in any negotiations with car dealers over sticker prices or part-exchange values and you’ll be able to calculate far more accurately the kind of new car you can afford - be that through buying outright or arranging a finance deal.

So, once again, welcome to the Auto Express car valuation tool. We hope it helps you get a great deal both on the car you’ve got and the car you’ll buy next.
