Q: Can you email me or send me a PDF of a Parkers car valuation?
A: Our system performs 1000s of valuations every day so we can’t email you data or send out PDF’s when you request pricing. However, follow the steps below and you’ll have a valuation in minutes. Valuation and pricing data should be saved locally to your own device.
Q: Can I get a free car valuation without email?
A: Yes, you can perform a free car price check without entering your email, by using the tool on the page above.
Q: How does the Parkers car value calculator work and can I value more than one car?
A: It’s a simple process using the tool above. First select a car you are actually buying or selling, and then our company look up the price in our valuations database. You can value as many vehicles as you like – it’s unlimited. You don’t need to enter any personal information at this time. It’s that simple.
Q: Can I value my auto by registration number?
A: Yes, by using the vehicle registration [VRM] tool look-up above on this page.
Q: How often is the pricing data updated?
A: We normally update our used pricing on a monthly basis which usually happens during the first week of the month.
Q: When I value my car, what is included in the report?
A: When you get a free valuation from Parkers, you get two ranges of values based on a standard mileage and equipment tally. You are presented with the private value, which is the typical price you’ll pay for a car in a private sale. What you can reasonably expect is a car with some or full-service history, few or no mechanical issues, decent bodywork and a reasonable amount of MoT left on it. You also get an expected dealer price, for which you can expect a car with a warranty, and for it to have no major mechanical, bodywork or paint issues.
You can more accurately adjust our car valuations to reflect higher or lower mileages, and any optional extras added to the spec of your car that increase the value, simply by choosing a Parkers premium valuation, which costs from just £4.99.
Q: What’s my car truly worth? How accurate is your valuation?
A: The standard free valuation is based on average mileage and standard equipment for that model. The free valuations are available for most cars made from 2001/51 plate onwards based on average mileage and standard specification. These can be used as a guide to buy, sell or even trade-in. Valuations are for UK spec cars only – sorry we don’t value any imports.
However, if you want the exact spec of the auto you want reflected in the evaluation (for instance if the car has optional extras or an above- or below-average mileage), you can get that from one of our premium paid-for valuations.
Q: How much can options affect your valuation?
A: Even though they can make a car more attractive to a potential buyer, not all added options fitted to a vehicle will guarantee an increase in value when you come to sell. Options such as body kits, cosmetic additions, LED headlamps, headlamp washers, floor mats and in some cases alloy wheels, don’t really enhance the price – but where they do, you’ll be given the chance to select them when performing a valuation. The added value of options reduces considerably as the car’s age increases.
Normally we allow about 50-60% of the original option value after the first year. However, after five years the value of options is reduced to around 20-25% and at 10 years, options add little or no value to the vehicle [ but can make it easier to sell ]. At Parkers, our car valuation guide only lists the options that do increase a car’s value – helping you to calculate a more realistic price.
Remember that mileage and [some] options can make a significant difference to how much your car is worth – sometimes adding hundreds or even thousands of pounds to a value, so it can pay to get a fully adjusted car valuation.
Q: What is the earliest year/plate range that you can provide?
A: The normal Parkers data sets go back approximately 20 years. Currently, we value cars from 2002/02 plate onwards including private registration plates and plates issued in Northern Ireland.
Q: I have a classic car – can you provide a valuation?
A: Parkers pricing data only covers standard cars over the last 20 years based on an average minimum mileage per year. If you have a very low mileage, mint, classic – you may need to contact a specialist owners club.to get a better idea on the correct market price.
Q: What other information do you get?
A: We list the original price of the car when new and the secondhand price you’d expect to pay for it today at a franchised dealer, an independent dealer and a private seller. We also indicate what to pay if the car’s in good or bad condition, and offer a part-exchange value for those buyers simply wishing to trade their existing vehicle in at a dealership. It’s all in our car valuation online tool.
Q: What can reduce a car’s value?
A: When buying a car, damaged bodywork, high mileage and poor specification are the main factors that will reduce the value of a car. So if you’re checking a valuation with Parkers and it’s at odds with the price of the car you’re looking at, there could be a big difference in the mileage or condition. When selling a car, the same factors hold true – but at least you can decide whether that small dent is worth fixing before you sell.
Q: How does mileage affect a car’s value?
A: As a rule, cars with higher mileages have lower values because they generally have more wear and tear. But this one of several factors decide a car’s value – these include the service history, general condition, any optional features fitted, and how rare or desirable the model is.
Q: Can I get a valuation on my car from previous years – i.e ‘What was my car worth in June 2018?”
A: We used to offer historic valuation data many years ago but as the uptake was very small, this was discontinued in 2011.
Q: Are my valuations saved in my Parkers user profile account?
A: Unfortunately not. We perform many thousands of appraisals each day and it would be impractical to save each one of them. If you obtain a valuation, save the records on your own device so you can access it at a later date if need be.
Q: Does Parkers still publish the monthly car price guide or even Parkers Plus?
A: Parkers Plus [pricing for older cars] finished in 2001 and after 47 very successful years of supplying the UK motoring consumer used costs, the main printed price guide finally closed with the last issue in January 2020. All Parkers data is now online only. You can purchase a month’s subscription to all our pricing data with unlimited valuations for only £9.99.
Q: What is a CAT ‘N’ or CAT ‘S’ car and can you do a valuation for me on my damaged car?
A: Category C – Now ‘CAT S’ (Structural). An extensively damaged vehicle which the insurer has decided not to repair, but which could be repaired and returned to the road. The DVLA will require confirmation that the vehicle is now roadworthy and repairs carried out to a minimum standard. There is a certain amount of paperwork involved and a VIC Inspection and ‘Vehicle Identity Form’ must be completed.
Category D – Now ‘CAT N’ (Non-structural). A damaged vehicle which the insurer has decided not to repair possibly because it falls within the ‘BER’ ‘Beyond Economical Repair’ category. The normal problem being, that to replace any parts would be more expensive than the car is worth and the decision is generally based on economic criteria rather than the severity of the damage. Having said that, the car could be repaired and returned to the road.
When it comes to damage, because the amount of variables is so great, there is no fixed pricing structure or formula. For example, a car with panel damage, kerbed alloys etc will fall into the ‘Private Poor’ category. A car which has only minor damage [failed electric windows is a good example] should obtain a pricing level just listed below ‘Private Good’. Normally, a price somewhere in the middle ground between ‘Private Good’ and also ‘Private Poor’ will be a good indication but ultimately, it’s down to the amount of damage or the amount on non-working items the car has.
Parkers.co.uk does not offer specific values on cars that possess been written off. The amount of potential variables is just too great to put an exact figure on an individual vehicle. However, as a general rule, a Cat ‘S’ and ‘N’ car will be worth between 10 and 30% below normal book.
Q: Can you contact us directly about valuations?
A: Absolutely, yes. Just email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately not. We perform many 1000’s of valuations every day and it would be impractical to save each one of them. If you obtain an assessment, save the records on your own device so you can access it at a later date if need be actually.
