How to get the most accurate part exchange valuation with Carbase

Here at Carbase, we've always had a transparent and simple part exchange process, but it's now even simpler thanks to our Expert Valuation service!


What is the Expert Valuation service for?

Our new Expert Car Valuation Service means that you can now carry out a full and accurate vehicle appraisal from the comfort of your home.

The amount that your old car is worth depends on a number of factors, which range from it's age and condition, to all the added extras that come with your car. Our Valuation Service simply collates all of this information to provide you with an accurate vehicle valuation, all assisted by one of our Carbase experts, before you even come in to see us.


How does it work?

Let's get started - Our Expert Valuation service is available On both desktop and mobile, via our website. Once you've started the process, you're just a few simple steps away from receiving an expert valuation for your car. Here's what you'll need to do:

Before you can begin, simply head over to our Expert Valuation Service.


Step 1 - Simply enter your vehicle registration to bring up a basic description of your car and confirm that the information is correct to move onto the next step.


Step 2 - To provide you with an accurate valuation, we'll just need to take a look at your car. You can either take a short 360-degree video of your car or upload a series of photos. Both options are extremely easy, and the Expert Car Valuation Service will guide you through the process to make sure we get all the shots we need!


Step 3 - You will then be asked for some really basic details, including the mileage of your car, the number of sets of keys you own for the vehicle, and the service history that you have available.


Step 4 - The next stage involves detailing any areas of damage that are on your car. Simply click through the diagrams of the interior, front, back and sides of the car, and indicate any areas that show damage. We will then prompt you to take a photo of the damage and upload it directly to the app.


Step 5 - All you'll need to do to complete your request is fill in your name, contact details, and click the submit button to allow the photos and video to be uploaded.


And that's it, you're all done! One of our Carbase experts will be in touch within an hour after your request has been submitted (during store opening hours).


We're a family run company, and always put fairness at the forefront of everything we do. Therefore, if you're interested in a part exchange, we'll do all we can to give you the best value we're able to provide. For a quick valuation, head over the our part-exchange section, or come in store to speak to one of our experts - we'd love to help you!
