How does a Dealer decide what price to offer?

Your car is ultimately worth what someone is willing to pay for it. So it’s our job to make your car look as attractive as possible. Wizzle helps you build a professional quality appraisal to show off your car to 1000’s of dealers. This is the best way to get the most most money for your car. When a dealer wants to buy a new car, they will be thinking about lots of different things…

  • Type of car – Firstly, dealers will consider the make, and model of your car. They’ll also think about the engine size, if it takes petrol or diesel and the body style. For example, in the Summer you can get more for a convertible car than in the Winter. If your car is manual or automatic, it can make a big difference to the price too.
  • Age – If a car is still new and has only had a few owners, it’s going to be worth more than a much older one. But, some cars (like classic cars), can actually worth more money if they are older.
  • Service History – To get an idea if the car has been looked after, dealers can look at the service history. A car that has a full service history with a record of each time it went in to the garage, shows that the car has been well looked after and is probably in good condition. Whereas a car with no service history is much harder to price. If a service is overdue, the dealer has to take this cost into consideration.
  • MOT Status – Having a valid MOT makes a big difference in the cars value. Although there are dealers who will buy a car without an MOT, these are certainly fewer. To get the most for your car when you sell it, make sure there is a valid MOT on it with at least 30 days left.
  • Driving or Mechanical Faults – A car that runs smoothly without any funny noises or issues will be worth more than one that has major faults. Problems that don’t impact on the cars safety, like if the air-con is faulty, are less of an issue. However, significant problems make a car worth much less. Dealers have to factor in the large amount of money they need to spend on the car to get it safe again.
  • Warning Lights – Cars with no dashboard warning lights attract the best prices. Warning lights like a service light or bulb warnings attract slightly lower prices. But, any cars with major warning lights (like brake system lights, or air bag lights) will have a tough time getting good prices.
  • Fancy Extras – Cars with the highest specification and trim level tend to get better valuations. Sunroofs, satnav, parking sensors, climate control, Bluetooth, and leather seats can substantially increase the value of a car. Certain colour schemes will also impact on how much a car is worth. For 2016/17, Wizzle statistics show that white cars are currently the best sellers.
  • Wheels & Tyres – Cracked alloys and worn tyres can cost a lot on some cars to put right. Generally the bigger the wheels, the more expensive they are to replace or fix. Dealers pride themselves on selling cars with good wheels and tyres. So if they have to pay a lot to get them in a good condition – they will not be able to offer as much for a car.  Many dealers have special “wheel workshops” for this reason.
  • Overall Condition – This is a tell-tale sign of the overall value of a car. This is where a good car dealer can shine. Using their experience, car dealers take pride in their ability to judge the worth of a car on it’s overall condition. A clean, good looking car, with everything working as it should will always get the best prices.
  • Online Guides – Once a dealer has weighed up the value of a car, they often double check their prices with a trade-based car valuation guide. This is most likely an online service that uses a number of measures to value a cars current worth.

Find Out How Much Your Car Is Worth

I would definitely recommend Wizzle. Simple, clear, easy to use and I got a good price for my car. I tried a few other online valuers. They give you a price and the knock you down from there. With this one, bids kept on coming in and the price kept going up until I accepted a bid I was happy with. Oh, and they came and picked the car up from my house. No complaints at all.

Exceptional service, I highly recommend it and will definitely use it again. Very easy to upload advertisement, had almost instant responses and an offer at the requested selling price within 48 hrs. Purchasing dealer phoned promptly and collected the following day, a very nice polite and professional Gentleman,paying the full amount into my account within 20 minutes of arrival and no fees or charges either.

Wizzle was amazing! The layout of the form easy and straightforward; able to stop at any point and be taken back to the same place without having to start from scratch; direct lines if questions needed to be asked - Jim, who I spoke to most - was so pleasant, as was Natasha. Wizzle were so exceptional that because I had agreed to accept an offer, I actually turned down a higher offer because I had given my word to such lovely, helpful people.

We sold our BMW 1 series through Wizzle. It was a fantastic experience. Within 48 hours of listing we were offered a great price which was followed up by prompt collection and immediate payment. I could not recommend this service high enough. It must be the easiest and most hassle free way to sell a car. Thankyou Wizzle

Very simple and straightforward process to sell my car, beating the starting prices offered by 'webuyanycar' and similar companies. The sale was completed at home by a very professional dealer, following a discussion with the Wizzle office and more very helpful people. The whole process felt more personal with no sales pressure - I'd highly recommend Wizzle!
- Nick Fellows
It was very easy selling my car through Wizzle. Yes, you do have to take photos and answer lots of questions about your car but this means potential buyers have all the information they need. Wizzle don't pester you, they just phoned to ask me if an offer was acceptable and gave me information about the prospective purchaser. If you want to sell your car easily just give Wizzle a ring - mine sold in a few hours.

It was a pleasure working with you to sell my car and a much better service than the other websites. As you get the right people who want my car and not just any car at a cheap price, so keep up the good work.I will recommend you to others as a very good website.

Sold my little car yesterday with the help of Wizzle. Delighted with the whole process. Well presented and easy website to use. The car dealer offered a fair amount on my car. We arranged a time for him to collect it. The full price was paid. I am delighted. Quick and easy.
- Penelope Lynn
Very pleased with whole process offered by Wizzle. Got the price I wanted for my car. The money was in my account before the garage picked up the car. Would highly recommend Wizzle to anyone who wants to sell their car quickly and easily.

Wizzle were very easy to deal with and provided a platform to sell my car to trade that was straight forward and transparent. I sold my car quickly for a fair price. I would definitely use them again.
- Rachel Craig
Seamless experience no stress they just do it all for you. It is still selling to a dealer so expect dealer offers but Wizzle will go to bat for you to get the best dealer price possible.
- Steve White
Easy to use, convenient way of selling a used car. If you are truthful about the condition then the transaction with a dealer is simple. In general seems to result in a return approximately equivalent to a trade in value.
- Ian Yemm
Really helpful and supportive throughout the whole process of selling my car. Made things a lot less stressful. Would definitely recommend.
- Jennifer Hedge
