Vehicle evaluation

Car valuation - is the price right? DEKRA evaluates vehicles appropriately

When it comes to determining the purchase, sale or replacement value of motor vehicles, you have come to the right place: We have the expert knowledge to evaluate vehicles appropriately.

When evaluating a vehicle, we make reliable statements about the condition of the vehicle. All vehicle details are recorded and all value-relevant factors are clearly documented and taken into account in terms of value. We thus offer a reliable basis for determining the value when buying or selling a vehicle.

You can contact us by phone via our service number. You can also contact one of our DEKRA branches. One of our experts will then contact you directly and make you a specific offer.

Vehicle evaluation by EDP (car, TRP, GLW, KRAD)

Depending on the intended use, we determine the following values ​​for cars, vans up to 3.5 t (without special bodies) as well as motorcycles and off-road vehicles:

  • Dealer purchase value (HEK)
  • Dealer Selling Value (HVK)
  • Replacement value (WBW)

With this service, all vehicle details are recorded and carefully documented with the help of IT. All value-relevant factors are checked, documented in a comprehensible manner and taken into account in terms of value:

  • General vehicle data (such as design, initial registration, mileage)
  • Standard and special equipment
  • Value-increasing factors (such as AT units, value-increasing repairs)
  • Necessary repairs (such as damage, wear and tear of safety-relevant and other parts, missing inspections)
  • Missing parts (such as dismantled or dismantled standard accessories, incomplete on-board tools)
  • Depreciation from previous damage (repaired accident damage)

The vehicle is subjected to a critical examination of the interior, engine and trunk as well as the body including an inspection of the underside with the chassis. We also check the function of equipment parts and test the vehicle on a test drive.

Service for leasing returns

We determine the condition of cars, vans up to 3.5 t (without special bodies) as well as motorcycles and off-road vehicles for you.

If the condition of a vehicle deviates from the standard due to damaged parts or accidental damage, the EDP condition report clarifies the extent to which necessary repairs or previous accidents have contributed to the depreciation.

This service is designed in particular for the processing of transactions in the case of leasing returns with a contract in which a residual value is firmly agreed and only factors that increase or decrease in value need to be considered.

We document the following facts:

  • General vehicle data (such as design, initial registration, mileage)
  • Standard and special equipment
  • Value-increasing factors (such as AT units, value-increasing repairs)
  • Necessary repairs (such as damage, wear and tear on safety-relevant and other parts, missing inspections)
  • Missing parts (such as dismantled or dismantled standard accessories, incomplete on-board tools)
  • Depreciation from previous damage (repaired accident damage)

Your vehicle is subjected to a critical examination of the interior, engine and trunk as well as the body, including an inspection of the underside with the chassis. In addition, we check the function of the equipment and undertake a short test drive (usually on the company premises). The EDP-controlled status report thus includes almost the same scope of services as a vehicle evaluation, but only the lower values ​​are shown. The purchase, sale or replacement value is not determined.

Various factors are included in the assessment

DEKRA evaluates your commercial vehicles with the help of IT. These factors are taken into account:

  • General vehicle data
  • Furnishing
  • Factors that add value
  • Necessary repairs
  • Depreciation from previous damage

We also determine the following values:

  • Dealer purchase value
  • Replacement value (also as part of a damage report if the 70% limit is reached: repair costs / replacement value)

For vehicles that deviate significantly from the series, the rating is created individually.

Commercial vehicle condition report

The multitude of modern forms of financing, in which the vehicle owner is not the same as the vehicle user, usually requires a status report of the vehicle after the agreed period of use. In a status report, defects and costs for their repair are shown in detail.

Documentation for vehicle handover in accordance with the contract

We take the following points into account in the commercial vehicle condition report:

  • Repair requirements and costs
  • Amount of damage
  • Other defects
  • Signs of use

The vehicle value is not shown in this test.

We determine the other values ​​of the leisure and special vehicles

The range of recreational vehicles is wide. Here you can find out more about the vehicles and services from DEKRA mentioned as examples.

RVs

(Caravans, camping trailers, mobile homes, series, self-construction, individual production, mixed forms such as horse transporters with living quarters).

Caravans and mobile homes have a high emotional value. We create a comprehensible assessment for residential vehicles (series, self-made or expansion) and determine the following factors:

  • Dealer purchase value
  • Dealer sale value
  • Replacement value

Fun vehicles and fun mobiles

(Trikes, quads, buggies)

The same evaluation criteria apply to these vehicles as to motor homes. DEKRA determines the following values ​​objectively and in line with the market:

  • Dealer purchase value
  • Dealer sale value
  • Replacement value

Trailers for sports purposes

(e.g. horse, boat and motorcycle trailers)

We create an objective assessment for this type of vehicle:

  • For insurance purposes, the replacement value
  • For the trade, the purchase value

Manual classic car appraisal creates security

We create manual appraisals (also called manual vehicle appraisals) for all vehicles that deviate from the standard in any way or for which no quotations are available.

The vehicle is described in detail in these reports. In addition to the technical data, there is also a detailed description of the status of all modules. Details such as restoration work or conversions are also listed and - as far as comprehensible - documented.

After extensive market research, we determine the realistic market value for you. This gives you a precise basis for buying, selling and insuring.

DEKRA evaluates market-oriented and neutrally

The definition and specification of values ​​are important components of machine appraisal reports. DEKRA machine experts have many years of experience in this sector and have extensive knowledge of market conditions. They evaluate market-oriented and realistic machines in the fields of craft, trade and manufacturing, for automotive technical and other facilities (stationary and / or mobile).

Machine evaluation reports are necessary in the following cases:

  • Bankruptcies or bankruptcies
  • Business transfers
  • Succession arrangements
  • Commercial and / or private resale (mostly used machines or equipment)

The strict criteria of the banks for the granting of loans against the background of "Basel II" require the exact valuation of the machine or the object before loan commitments. Client for valuation reports:

  • Banks
  • Leasing company
  • insurance company
  • Dealer and sales organizations
  • Private customers (such as construction)

Valuation reports contain a market-oriented value. The following factors are used as a basis:

  • Type of use
  • Conditions of use
  • Place of use
  • Status of legal inspections (such as inspection book, UVV / VBG)
  • Maintenance and repair certificates
