Car pricing 101
Anatomy of your car's value
There's a long list of things that determine a car's current market value no matter how you decide to sell. All car values are determined by these factors: age/year, brand, condition, mileage, accident history, location, popular options & add-ons, supply and demand and timing.
Don’t worry about scratches, everyone has them!
Sometimes, things are just out of your control, such as:
It’s A LOT, we know!
That’s why at Autozen, our team works everyday to understand the market to help you, our sellers, find the one buyer that is willing to offer the most. We’re your advocate to understanding all the moving parts to showcase your car in the best light, where 100s of our pre-vetted and hungry car buyers and dealerships will compete against one another on our platform. So rather than dealing with private buyers and dealerships, let us present the best offer from our auction platform.
We understand the market to help you find the one right buyer.
Things that could help add value
- Features that are in high demand or rare, for example: navigation system, sunroof, leather seats, backup camera, Apple/android car play.
- Factory accessories such as original tires, two sets of keys etc.
- Tire treads that are not too worn - tire tread depth can impact the value of your car, in fact some dealers will have to replace tires entirely in order to re-sell it. Be sure to let us know if you have an additional set of wheels/tires.
- Low relative KM for age of vehicle
- Consistent service records
- Less than $5k in accident history (CarFax)
Having a “spec sheet” makes a big difference for German cars (BMW/Mercedes etc). Having something that shows your car’s exact add-ons/upgrades helps us identify the features that can really boost your car value.
