Value My Vehicle at SMC

When deciding to buy a new vehicle, one of the most important factors to take into consideration is how well it will preserve its value over the period of ownership. A properly maintained, solidly constructed car will not only provide its owner with years of faithful service, but can prove to be a wise investment when it comes time to trade-in or part-exchange.

To ensure that your car maintains the maximum possible value during your period of ownership, there are a few steps you can take. Firstly, ensure that you follow recommendations when it comes to basic maintenance like oil and tyres. If the manufacturer specifies a particular brand or pressure, it is often for a good reason – maintaining the correct tyre pressure alone can increase your mileage by up to three percent. Other tips include booking regular services and keeping accurate records about the vehicle's history. In short, treat your car with respect and it will reward you later on.

At SMC, we strive to make it as easy as possible for our customers to ascertain just how much their current vehicle is worth. The valuations we provide are based on 30 years of industry expertise and a customer-focused philosophy. We want to ensure that you come back to us again and again, so we offer extremely competitive prices on all the used stock we buy.

Our two-step valuation tool provides an honest and fair appraisal of the resale value of your car in minutes. To use the service, enter your car's registration number below. The make and model of your vehicle will come up – simply enter your mileage and a few contact details, then click 'Get my valuation'. We will tell you how much it may be worth as a trade-in.

This On-Line Valuation / email is not a contractual offer to buy your vehicle. On-site Inspection / Appraisal: We appreciate that not all customers are experts in assessing the condition of their car therefore, in order to confirm the valuation, we will need to see your vehicle at one of our locations where we always carry out an On-Site Inspection / Appraisal of a vehicle where it will be fully and fairly appraised, including a road test before we can confirm the On-Line Valuation or offer to buy your car. If we consider that its value is affected by any aspect of its history or condition, including any unusual feature or customisation, which was not apparent to us when we gave the On-line Valuation, the price that we offer for it will differ from the On-line Valuation. A vehicle will only be purchased where you are the legal owner, supported by the correct V5 documentation and once a full appraisal and road test has been completed at one of our locations For Full Terms and Conditions visit www.smc-cars.com/site/terms-and-conditions/#On-Site-Valuations
