To sell your vehicle, we will need the following documents:
- Logbook/ VLC for the vehicle

- Proof of address (Utility bill with owner’s name and address and must match the address on the Logbook/ VLC)
- Bank account details
The resale value of a vehicle may be lower than that of an identical vehicle with fewer miles driven since a vehicle with more miles driven is likely to have greater wear and tear.
When determining an accurate assessment for your car, a number of criteria are taken into account, including how well it has been maintained, any optional extras that are present, and how well-liked the colour and trim are.
Despite the fact that many optional upgrades might boost a car’s appeal to buyers, not all extras can ensure a rise in value if you ever decide to sell it. The price isn’t greatly increased by body modifications, LED headlamps, headlamp washers, cosmetic upgrades, or, in certain cases, alloy wheels.
The value of a car can be impacted by modifications both favourably and unfavourably. For instance, tinted windows could boost the car’s aesthetic appeal and value. On the other hand, some modifications, such as non-factory fitted upgrades, may have a negative effect on a car’s value because there is no guarantee that they have been done to a high standard and they may void the warranty.
The value of your car is affected by a number of factors, some of which are under your control and others of which are not. You should consider the following if you want to sell your car for the most money: Repair any damage; keeping your vehicle in good mechanical and visual condition will boost its worth by making it more appealing to buyers. Have a valid NCT; if your current NCT expires in less than 6 months, it may affect how much your car is worth because the new owner will need to get a NCT soon after buying the vehicle. Keep all service records so you can prove that your vehicle has had regular maintenance from a trustworthy source. Clean your car. This is a simple way to get the greatest price for your vehicle. A clean vehicle is more appealing and can help to ensure that no dirt is mistaken for a deeper scratch or dent.
The Price My Car evaluation tool only requires a few details to produce an accurate bid. We advise having the following information on hand before beginning your online valuation: Your name, your phone number, the miles/KMs on your vehicle, your license plate number, and any damage to the vehicle.
The bid you receive for car is pending a final physical inspection. Provided you have submitted accurate details about your vehicle and its current condition, the dealer is committed to pay the bided amount. The dealer will only suggest a lower amount on the day of sale if anything is materially different to the details you shared on the Price My Car website.
