Thinking of selling your car? The video above explains how to properly value it.

Top tips for selling your car:

Do your research - find vehicles that are of a similar specification to yours (trim, kilometres, model year etc) and view what buyers are offering. This will allow you to accurately gauge the value of your car.

Use free valuation tools - Many sites offer free tools to help you get the best value for your vehicle. 

Decide if you want the full value or a quick sale - Choosing what you want to get out of the sale of your car is key to making the process as easy as possible.

Values differ depending on the buyer - Selling your car privately will net your much more money that selling it to a dealership or as a "part-exchange".
