How to get the best, most accurate price for your Volkswagen

Want the absolute best offer for your Volkswagen? A bit of prep can make a big difference. Here’s how you can help us give you a top-notch price:

  • Honesty is the best policy: Be thorough when describing your Volkswagen. Mention even minor damages and ensure the mileage is correct to within 500 miles. Transparency is crucial as discrepancies can alter the valuation.
  • Showcase the service history: Whether it’s a stamped logbook, orderly invoices, or digital records, present them all. This proves your Volkswagen has been well-maintained, potentially increasing its value.
  • A spotless presentation: First impressions count. A clean and tidy Volkswagen not only looks good but also allows us to inspect it more efficiently, respecting your valuable time.
