How Much Is My Car Worth

Traditionally speaking, the value of anything is what a willing buyer will offer and a willing seller will accept. If there’s a gap between these two, then this could close through negotiation, haggling and good old-fashioned horse-trading. This is all fine and dandy provided the parties match up evenly. If not, the car buyer may use the advantage of knowledge to close a deal that just isn’t fair.

Free car value offers litter Australia. Some like car buyers guides have a little credibility because at least they list a number you can call and get an answer. We don’t usually bother much about them because we buy any car for cash that we can sell on, and we know precisely what they are worth.

Customers with private cars for sale often try out other free car value sites before choosing us. We don’t stress about this. We just continue selling cars by the hundreds in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Darwin, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Townsville, Mackay, Cairns, Wagga Wagga, Albury, Wodonga, Echuca, Mildura, Horsham, Bendigo, Ballarat and Geelong because we know they will come back.

The correct answer to the poser “how much is my car worth” is the average of recent sales of similar vehicles after factoring out the differences. Used car sales are volatile across Australia currently and we’ve seen some wild average price swings recently. To our way of thinking this puts paid to any value in sales history that’s more than a few weeks old.

Recent average prices depend on a high number of transactions to be representative. Our stated policy that we buy any car in Australia that is an honest runner gives us access to a huge store of data. The free car values we provide to customers considering selling to us are thus a valid statement of how much their car is worth.

Unfortunately, the same is not true for used car auctions and offers from dealers hoping to buy a used car at a bargain price. Let’s pause for a moment to consider the reasons for this:

  • The Car Buyers do not publish sales reports. This deprives the industry of key top end data
  • Used car buyers guides rely on information the government publishes when it is hopelessly out of date
  • Used car auctions sites, free car value websites and high street 2nd hand car dealers all base their guidelines on this self-same inaccurate information.

This is almost criminal in the currently inflationary phase that Australia is passing through. With this running at 2%, a used car that might have sold for $18,000 in 2012 could be worth $360 more if we factor out the differences. Why pay for a used car guide or take your chances with an auction guideline price? This makes no sense at all.
