Manheim is the underwriter and our partner for this proposition. They are part of Cox Automotive; the worlds largest automotive organisation.

The price is calculated using Auto Trader’s award-winning valuationsas the foundation. Manheim then overlay their industry leading valuations that reflect condition and current trade price fluctuations. These valuations are then applied to the vehicle based on the appraisal answers given.

The disposal underwrite service is completely optional. It’s up to you how you choose to dispose. This service simply gives you an efficient way to dispose of unwanted stock and keep your cash flowing.

When customers appraise their own part-ex, they’re asked to confirm that the appraisal is correct to the best of their knowledge, and they’re informed that the price may change if it’s not been accurately appraised. During the handover, you must appraise the condition to ensure it’s been accurately appraised, just like you would with any normal part-ex.

Auto Trader’s part-exchange guide prices give consumers exactly what the name suggests; a guide price for their vehicles valuation. The guide price considers the mileage, expected condition based on age and optional features – if these are provided at the point of valuation. It does not account for actual vehicle condition, number of owners, colour, service history or MOT status. In contrast, our guaranteed part-exchange prices are calculated based on actual condition, as well as colour, service history, number of owners and MOT status. Optional features are not factored in. The guaranteed price is underwritten.
