25th August 2004, 00:14
Bike Trader is partnering with Glass's Information Services to offer used motorcycle valuations on the publication's website. Users visiting the Bike Trader site (http://www.autotrader.co.uk/BIKES/) will now be able to download a detailed valuation certificate to confirm the appropriate market value of an individual second-hand motorcycle.

The certificate features four figures, including three trade-in values that reflect different conditions of the machine (Excellent, Average, Below Average), and one forecourt value.

Each valuation certificate will cost 2.95. The data is updated by Glass's each month, and covers UK-specification motorcycles registered from 1996-2004.

Steve Ricketts, Strategic Business Manager at Glass's, said: "Condition will inevitably affect the value of an individual used motorcycle, but there are also other factors that can have an impact, such as the constant influx of new models into the market. By accessing valuations that take account of such factors, consumers can purchase a second-hand machine with much greater confidence."
