How mileage affects car valuation?

Mileage is one of the most significant factors that affect a car's valuation. In the UK, car mileage is generally grouped in bands of 20,000 miles. Each time a car passes through a band, there will be around 20?preciation of its original value.

What are Cat D and Cat C cars?

In the UK, insurance companies use 4 categories to classify cars based on the damage sustained by them from collision or accident. These categories are labelled as A, B, C and D. In several car sell listing pages, you will often find some vehicles labelled as Cat D (or category D) or Cat C (or category C), which indicates:

Cat D- This label shows that a particular car has sustained some moderate damage. However, the repair cost of such damages is less than the total market value of the car. Therefore, when you see a vehicle with a Cat D label, it will indicate that either it has some underlying damages that the buyer needs to repair, leading to extra costs, or that the damage has been already repaired.

Cat C- This label indicates that the particular vehicle has been involved in some collision and the repair cost of the damage sustained from the collision is more than its current market value. It means that the insurance company would not pay for such damages. Therefore, if you sell a Cat C car, there will be almost a 50?preciation of its original value.
