Full Answer

When finding the value of a vehicle through Hagerty's vehicle search engine, you enter the vehicle's body type, make, model and production year or the vehicle identification number. Hagerty provides a list of vehicles matching the chosen criteria. After selecting the appropriate vehicle, you receive detailed information about the vehicle's value trends, comparables and model history. Hagerty also provides a list of cars for sale matching the chosen criteria.

You customize your valuation by selecting one of the four provided condition categories. Condition one indicates a vehicle that is in perfect condition, including proper grooming, painting and cleaning. Condition four, however, indicates vehicles that have been driven daily and may have imperfections, minor dents or paint chipping. Hagerty provides a value chart noting all four conditions of the vehicle and their possible valuation changes over time. For example, a Hagerty value chart for a condition one 1980 Aston Martin V8 Volante notes that in September 2006 the vehicle had an estimated value of $85,000, while the vehicle's value rose to $165,000 by May 2015.
