  • How much is my car worth?
    The value of your car depends on several factors such as make, model, age, mileage (kilometres travelled) and condition. Other things to consider are any upgrades or modifications, and local market demand. The best way to find out your car’s worth is to ask us for a free, no-obligation appraisal. Our knowledgeable team has 30 years of experience and can give you a more accurate assessment of your car’s value.
  • How quickly can I get money for my car?
    We Buy Any Car Melbourne offers same-day payments for vehicles sold to us. As soon as your vehicle has been inspected and the sale is complete, we will transfer the funds directly to your bank account.
  • How long does a vehicle inspection take?
    At We Buy Any Car Melbourne, our vehicle inspections typically take between 5-15 minutes. Our expert buyers will quickly assess the condition of your vehicle so that we can give you the best possible offer.
  • How does mileage affect how much my car is worth?
    The more kilometres a car has been driven, the less it is worth due to the car having more wear and tear. To work out how much the value of your car has been affected, you can group your mileage into bands of 20,000 kilometres , such as – up to 20k, 40k, 60k kilometres etc. As a general rule, each time a car moves into the next band, it loses approximately 20% of its current value.
  • How does the condition of my car affect its value?
    A car in perfect condition will ultimately be worth more than the same car which has cosmetic or mechanical damage. This is due to the cost of repairs having to be deducted from the car’s resale price. Vehicles that have been involved in a collision which resulted in the car being deemed an insurance write-off will also see the value heavily decreased.
  • Does service history affect what my car is worth?
    Service history gives the buyer an indication of how well a car has been looked after and highlights any historical issues. A car that only has a part or no service history is a bigger risk to the buyer, therefore the resale value is lower. To reduce the amount of depreciation caused by gaps in the service history, it is advised that all service documentation is retained.
  • How does the number of owners affect the value of my car?
    Generally, the more owners a car has had, the less it will be worth. This is due to potential inconsistencies in driving styles, how the car has been maintained and the amount of mileage the car has covered.
  • Is my car worth more if it’s under warranty?
    A car that is still under manufacturer warranty could increase how much your car is worth. It’s not uncommon for manufacturers to offer extended periods of warranty to improve sales and interest for their fleet, therefore if your car is less than a few years old, it’s likely it’ll still be covered. If your car is still under warranty, it will improve the value, as it provides peace of mind to the buyer that they’re protected should anything covered under warranty go wrong.
  • Do modifications affect what my car is worth?
    Modifications to a car can both positively and negatively impact what it is worth at resale. Some modifications may make the car more aesthetically pleasing, which can result in the value being higher as it appeals more to a car enthusiast. However, modifications can also have a negative impact on the resale value as it adds more risk for the buyer and could be hiding previous damage. Modifications to the car’s mechanics also increase the risk involved, as there’s no guarantee they’ve been carried out to a high standard.
  • How does age affect what my car is worth?
    The age of a car is one of the largest determining factors when it comes to assessing how much the car is worth. Newer cars can depreciate quite quickly, losing up to 50% of its ‘new’ value in the first 3-4 years of ownership, so paying close attention to the market value of your vehicle based on its age alone is a good way to know what to expect when the time comes to re-sell the car.
  • Can I get a free car valuation without an email address and phone number?

  • What is the best way to sell my used car?
