MyCarculator FAQ

The value of a car drops right from the moment it is bought and the depreciation continues with each passing year. The make and model of a car, total kilometres driven, overall condition of the vehicle and various other factors further affect the car’s resale value. MyCarculator is a tool that takes all such variables into consideration to identify the current value of your car or if the price quoted on a used car of your choice is fair.

It is simple and takes only a few seconds. You follow the process by filling your car’s details like Make, Model, Year of registration, Mileage... The MyCarculator tool will calculate the estimated value of the car.

Year, make and model. Say you have a 2015 Nissan Sentra SL. “Sentra” is the model, and “SL” is the trim level. To find your trim level, look on the Horsepower of the car

Mycarculator is a payable service. You will have the choice between four packages: Basic, Pro and Premium.

These fators listed below are not necessarily factored in MyCarculator and may influence the value of your car. For these, you might want to add a premium to the valuation of your car.

  • Extra options
    Any optional extras that make a car stand out, for example a rear-facing camera to help with parking or an in-built sat nav, multimedia system and leather seats, should have a positive effect on the selling price.

  • Desirable colour
    Some colours are more popular than others, so a car in a sought-after colour can be worth more.

  • No damage
    Our car values are based on the car being in a good condition – so it could have some minor wear and tear like small stains or scratches. If a car has no damage at all and is in an excellent condition, the selling price could command a premium over the valuation.

  • Full service history
    A car with a complete record of all servicings can be worth more than one that has some gaps in the service history.

  • New tires

  • Vehicule under guarantee or under a maintenance contract with the agency

  • More the kilometres on a car, the lower its overall trade-in value. In Mauritius, the average car travels 20,000km per year. In general, a car that has clocked fewer kilometres on the odometer will reach a higher value. A car’s value also depends on other factors like its overall condition, the number of owners, location, service history, desirability and others.

MyCarculator is based on MyCar’s proprietary algorithm that uses data science to overlay years of used car transactions data points to predict accurate market value of your car. Rest assured, the Car Valuation tool arrives at a car’s value by purely factoring in variables like model of a car, total kilometres driven, overall condition of the vehicle and others. Dial in the fact that it’s updated in real time with current market trends and developments and you have an unbiased valuation of your car.

If you overprice your car, your insurance premium will also be overpriced. If you underprice your car, you will receive a lower claim payout under your insurance policy for a total loss event such as major accident or car theft.
