Market value of a mk2?
« on: 12 January 2016, 14:34 »
How would you obtain a market value for a pre-92 car? Parkers etc don't go that far back.  Asking as my car will be written off by insurers and ai have a market value policy.
 Can anyone shed some light on this?!

By coming up with as many examples for sale as you can from all the usual sources.

Be ready for a fight. Without an agreed value policy they will do their best to make out it's worth less than a bag of sand.

Ah ok, thought that might be the case.  The third party was at fault so hopefully my insurer/solicitor will help get a half decent price in that respect.  *does some lunges in preparation*.

According to the solicitors it is down to the assessor to value the car one he/she decides it's a write off.   I hope they know a thing or two about older motors.. that thing was very near mint!
