Single Valuations for Classic or Modified Cars

bespoke online Valuations – all vehicles

Online Valuations: Classic Cars or Modified Cars

With over thirty years of motor trade valuation experience, including ten years as Editor of Glass’s Guide – the used car valuations bible – and many years as an expert witness in court, I am the specialist valuations expert that insurance companies and solicitors come to when they need independent expert valuations and advice.

My online vehicle valuation reports are several pages long and include much detailed information and research. Covering your vehicle’s  history, specification including any modifications and current condition, they give the peace of mind required when a system-generated valuation at average market prices that fails to consider your car’s unique provenance is unsatisfactory.

Agreed insurance valuations are valid for two years. All valuation reports are compiled by me in person and the values are not average for the model. Every valuation is bespoke to the vehicle. The reports include:

  • A HPI-type report detailing any previous history of theft, insurance damage, mileage issues etc
  • A detailed picture of my current classic car market insights
  • Model-specific history and points of note
  • Details of the subject vehicle and its provenance
  • A look at market activity and prices in context
  • A bespoke valuation based on your car’s unique features and market appeal

You do not need to be a car club member to use this online service. An in-house condition report form is not usually required with my signed valuations. All data is confidential: Specialist Car Valuations is ICO registered and will never share your details – see our privacy policy.

To order your bespoke valuation, simply use the form below or email me with the details of your vehicle and some photographs.  You may also send files, images or links to history using WeTransfer, Onedrive or links to other online files.

What's the valuation for?

Agreed Insurance Valuation conditions:

By submitting this form and using my online classic car valuation service, you agree that:

  • The vehicle is not currently subject to an insurance claim
  • No litigation is expected or pending
  • All representations of condition will be full and complete
  • No relevant information will be omitted

My signed valuation will be emailed to you as a PDF document. Forward a copy to your insurer, with another copy retained in the history file. Most insurers do not require a condition inspection form when an expert valuation is submitted.

All submissions are treated in complete confidence. Your details are used for valuation purposes only and we fully respect your privacy. Contact me with any questions: john@specialist-car-valuations.com.
