My Valuation Experience
My motor trade experience stretches back more than thirty years, including ten years (2001-2010) spent as Valuations Editor with UK used car trade price bible, Glass’s Guide, where I was the Editor of the famous Glass’s Guide to Older Cars & Modern Classics. I was also the Consumer Valuations Editor with Glass’s and created the original ‘We Buy Any Car’ valuation algorithms, which were later adopted by many car manufacturers.
Established as an independent valuations consultant since 2010, I’m the expert that insurers and car dealers turn to when they end up in tricky situations needing some lateral thinking. I also help solicitors who need valuations for divorce proceedings, civil disputes or other purposes.
I am regularly instructed as a Single Joint Expert to the courts. 2022 cases have included high net worth divorce cases, multiple classic car collections for divorce purposes including a collection of several high value replica classics and ex-Grand Prix racing motorcycles, diminution on a Ferrari FF and a Porsche 911, two unrelated McLaren Spider cases for litigation around fitness for purpose, a number of disputed insurance settlement cases for the ombudsman, a case of three sub-standard Chinese sandwich vans and many other interesting valuation exercises.
Along with working for the legal community and the courts, my valuation practice encompasses private insurance and probate valuations on a network of specialist car and motorcycle websites. The next case is unpredictable and that is one of the most enjoyable things about my work.
