Schwacke list – a short explanation

The schwacke list bears the name of its inventor, the car dealer hanns W. Schwacke, who in 1957 came up with the idea of valuing used cars on the basis of list comparisons. Originally, this form of car valuation comes from the USA. If the first evaluation list included only two opel models on one page, today there are more than 3.000 different models of numerous car manufacturers are rated in this list. the current valuation list is published by the hessian company eurotax schwacke gmbh in maintal. it is considered the industry standard in germany for determining the residual value of used cars. The basis for the evaluation of the residual value are:

1. Vehicle type 2. Year of construction 3. Equipment 4. Mileage

Based on this data, we calculate an approximate residual value for the used car, which is recognized in many regions of germany. There are now other ways to determine the residual value of used cars that go into more detail about specific details.

Can you value a car with a few online details?

On the basis of the information provided in the first paragraph, it is possible to determine an initial rough estimate for a possible purchase price. This calculation does not take into account many of the individual characteristics of each car. For example, the value of a vehicle can be significantly increased by appropriate special equipment or retrofitted accessories. On the other hand, defects due to damage or increased wear and tear can cause the value of the vehicle to fall significantly below the average value determined.

For each individual case, the car residual value assessment based on the weak list is only an orientation value. It should be noted that an online car valuation via the schwacke valuation portal is subject to a fee. After entering the relevant vehicle data is a fee of EUR 7.90 due. Only after these costs have been accepted, the value of the vehicle will be displayed.

How does the schwacke list work??

The system of eurotax-schwacke offers the user a comparison of about 30 different car pool comprising 000 vehicle data. Computer-aided comparison calculators of companies that actually deal with the purchase of used cars today have a database of sometimes more than one million completed car purchases. Another problem of eurotax-schwacke is that only vehicles that have been registered in the last 12 years can find their way into the used car valuation.

For whom is the schwacke list suitable?

The valuation according to eurotax-schwacke is probably more suitable for commercial entrepreneurs who have a large fleet of vehicles. In these cases, you can estimate your entire fleet of similar vehicles with a single vehicle valuation at a price of EUR 7.90, and thus determine an average value with a price indicator. In commercial operations, the vehicles are usually already depreciated for tax purposes, so that the entrepreneur can also live well with an approximate used car price.

For the private individual who wants to achieve the highest price for his used car, eurotax-schwacke can only be a price indicator. Here it is necessary that the special equipment and individual features of the vehicle are also taken into account when determining the price.
