Lightstone valuations are estimated and based on more than 2.8 million records of bank finalised vehicle retail transactions financed through the Signio system (and other third parties).

Lightstone vehicle values are a guide for dealerships to establish a fair price when a vehicle is retailed, traded, bought into stock or auctioned.

Types of vehicle values:
Estimated value

The average value of a vehicle in the market, including a low and high value for retail trade and cost.

Adjusted value

The kilometre and condition adjusted value of a vehicle.

Vehicle valuations also include:
  • Vehicle details: Brand, model, derivative, etc
  • Trade: Total into-stock cost
  • Auction: A distressed sale value
  • Retail: Retail market value
  • Cost: The price a dealer pays the consumer

Note: factors such as vehicle condition, supply and demand, geographical location as well as other external factors could have an influence on the value of the vehicle.
