To find the value of a vehicle by using Hagerty valuation tools, either enter the vehicle identification number into the Hagerty website, or choose the type, make, model and year of the vehicle. Either way, a link to the vehicle becomes available, and when clicked, opens the valuation page.
The first result on the Hagerty valuation tool page is the average value of the vehicle. There is also a chart that shows the valuation of the vehicle over time. When looking at the chart, there are four different lines, each representing a different vehicle condition, from vehicle condition 1 to vehicle condition 4. The chart covers several years, which gives owners a good idea of how values of the vehicle change over time.
To find the approximate value of a vehicle, it is best to look at the condition of the vehicle and then compare it to the chart. For instance, a car that falls into the vehicle condition 1 category is as close to perfect as possible. This car must be perfectly clean, have mirror-like surfaces and be free of dust and dirt. On the other hand, a car that falls into the vehicle condition 4 category may have scratches, pitting or chips in the windshield. The interior may have cracks in the dashboard or split seams, and the overall car is fair in condition.
