Many customers ask does high mileage affect the value of my car? As a general rule, for every 20,000 miles added to your total, you can assume around 20% to be taken off your car's overall value.
How much value does low mileage add to a car?
Mileage is a key signal to how much your car is worth, as it gives a clear indicator of the life left in the vehicle, not just the engine. As a rule of thumb, low mileage vehicles can sell for 20-30% more than the same vehicle with high miles.
At what mileage does a car lose value?
A vehicle depreciates so as soon as a new vehicle is driven away from the forecourt you loose money and by the end of the first year will have lost around 40% of its value. It does depend on the type of car as some cars may only lose 10%. Typically if you do 10,000 miles a year, the average car will have lost around 60% of its value by the end of its 3rd year. When you look at our special offers you will see that the lower the mileage the lower the monthly rental as a vehicle depreciates more with higher miles.
