You can trust our data

Since 1979 we’ve made it our business to liaise with car dealers, manufacturers, motorists and a wide range of car experts to collate millions of pieces of data about thousands of new and used cars.

Voted the best valuations in the industry we’re relied upon by dealers, car manufacturers, insurers, lenders and car hire firms for our accuracy.

Whether you’re buying, selling or trading your car in you can be certain our valuations are accurate, reliable and totally independent.

Free impartial car valuations

We don’t buy or sell cars so our valuations are always unbiased, objective and fair.

Understanding the true value of the car you’re buying or selling can save you a lot of time, trouble and money. You need to make sure you’re not paying over the odds when you’re buying or under-pricing your car when selling. Equally, overpricing your car could mean the difference between finding a buyer or not. Whatever your situation, it always makes sense to be in the know.
