I am looking to sell my Berlingo XTR auto, and was wondering what it is worth? It's a December 2014 on a 64 plate with 10500 miles on it. It is in White and has factory Sat Nav, Auto lights and wipers and Climate Control and as I am getting a car through work, I need to sell it privately. It was serviced last month and is in perfect condition.
So I was hoping if any dealers have a Glass's guide and could help with an idea of how much I could get for it?
Autotrader has the functionality to provide both the selling and buying value based on prices advertised on their portal. I believe this functionality is only available to registered AutoTrader users which is free. Also maybe worth trying Honest John which also graphs selling prices by year. Finally as an absolute minimum price value you can get (that is, you are being ripped off if you sell it at that price) you could try one of the online "..... buy your car" portals to get a feel

I was in a similar position once when I switched from owning to leasing for a couple of years.
I got a fair idea of its value first, then spent a day driving round the used car dealers in the area. I found it's a lot better to just turn up than to ring first. I got a fair price in the end, just don't expect any more than trade price. It was gone and turned into money within a couple of days of phoning back the dealer that had made the best offer.
The one that bought mine said he wasn't interested when I turned up. This was just one of the silly car dealer's psychological games it seemed, as I said I only wanted trade value, he looked and gave me the best offer all day.
I know you haven't had yours long and bought it new, so be prepared for a big loss on it, however you sell it.
The other alternative is selling privately, but it can take months and these days nobody wants to pay much more than trade value anyway. Plus you could spend dozens of hours dealing with people.
I think you've added a lot of custom stuff to yours, so you might be best removing as much as possible - it will put a lot of people off.

Just another thought - do your company offer an allowance instead of a car? That way you get to keep the Blingo instead of having the ordeals of taking a loss AND having to drive an ordinary car (yuck!).
