    Value of my car (HELP)

    In regards to my other thread (RIP astra), i will be expecting a call from the insurance regarding the pay outfor my car. Unsure what to expect or what its worth can you guys give me some advice.

    Astra G 1.8 SRI 2003 (july).
    3 door.
    24k on the clock .

    The car was in A1 condition.

    From what i can find:
    (vauxhall) Dealer prices are approx £8500
    (autotrader) Privite prices are apporx £7000

    Thanks

    Matt

    With some insurance companies, they will only pay for what the car is worth, rather than what you've valued the car as? so u said £7k auto trader? May be somewhere around there. Not sure why, but some insurance companies do this. If they take the pi$$ with how much they give u, ring them up and give them an earfull though!

    couldnt agree more, best looking at what similar cars are selling for and aim to get no less.

    The whole point of insurance is to put you back in the same financial position you were before, no more, no less.
