Hi All,

I've been collecting 6 month valuations from We Buy Any Car since I bought my 996 4 years ago - interesting fluctuations

2003 996 Tip - Full Porsche Service History

06 February 2015 104,500 £11,995.00
07 June 2015 107,000 £9,200.00
16 January 2016 109,000 £8,695.00
05 June 2016 110,000 £10,000.00
01 February 2017 113,000 £8,725.00
01 June 2017 115,000 £9,315.00
01 February 2018 117,000 £9,255.00
01 June 2018 118,000 £9,560.00
01 February 2019 120,000 £7,000.00


I have no intention of selling to WBAC - or selling at all - but its interesting to see how the price fluctuates..

Greg

Do you use the same IP address when you do the valuations Question

As this will affect what they give you Bandit

Hi Swampy - do your quotes represent your current mileage or do you stick to a same mileage figure for every quote ?

The table looks to show a 10% ish depreciation per year +/- 15% depending on the season.

Mine has dropped 20%ish this year compared with last - maybe because I hit 120K miles?? or it recognises my IP Address??

Hi, yes I stick the true mileage in, but I cant see that making to much of a difference as it was on 55300 when I got it and currently on 58800 now.

I did a WBAC valuation on the turbo a few months ago and it was laughable. Just done it again (different IP) and its downright offensive!

Holy mother of god I can't believe what theyre offering now! Surprised

Yep, all the travel and insurance comparison sites do it too.
Keep logging in or going on day after day and you're price will only go up.

I'll give you £34,200. Wink

I do that with everyone I know who says they're going to WBAC. I just give them £200 more and there's still plenty left in the deal.
So it is good for some things.

I find WBAC very weird. I have just bought a car that the RAC value at £4,500. WBAC offer? £1400.

My son had a nissan micra that had a dented bonnet due to a road rage attack, rust all on the sills and the wing. The thing was a disgrace and dreadfully kept. No service history, failed its MOT and needed about £600 spent to make it road worthy. The engine sounded like a bag of bolts being shaken in a washing machine.

I thought he may get £100 for scrap. WBAC paid £850 for it. He only paid £1200 when it was in decent shape.

I suspect switching IP address wont avoid their price-down algorithm (most people have dynamic IP addresses at home anyway (changes each time your broadband syncs up), as you pay extra for static IP addresses).
As you have to put in the reg number, it will 'recognise' the car???.....

Its all about what they can punt on through their particular network of retailers. This will not have great coverage for niche cars like ours hence a low ball on anything slightly out of the run of the mill. They have massive data on the prices they are getting for stock, and of cars going through the auctions.

They only offer what the car is worth to them, its not really a good indicator of value for all cars. OK for a Nissan Micra that they will sell immediately but not so much for a 996 that will hang around for months.
