The used car price of a vehicle is often difficult for a layman to determine. Many aspects play an important role in determining the price of a used car, such as mileage, damage, optional equipment or even the general cleanliness. Some online platforms offer the possibility of simple search functions to determine the price of a used car. This is done by comparing the information about the vehicle with a large database and then using past purchases as a value indicator. 

But this is not always reliable, because the individual condition and the current market situation are often not taken into account. That's why at CarOnSale we offer our market price inquiry for sellers. Instead of just looking at the pure data, our experts determine the current price on the market. In addition, our condition report, COSCheck, provides the perfect basis for determining the price of a used car.

  • Finding out used car prices of passenger cars is often complicated due to their very individual features
  • A simple solution is to search for comparable vehicles on online portals
  • The best solution is to use the market price inquiry, for example from CarOnSale
