Classic BMW Insurance Valuations

Thanks for visiting BMW Valuations UK, run by John Glynn. I have been providing classic car owners, prospective buyers and industry professionals including lenders and insurers with independent agreed insurance valuations since 2001 . I also work with solicitors and legal professionals: valuing cars and preparing market reports for court cases including purchase disputes, divorce settlements, probate valuations and more.

My agreed insurance valuation service costs just £35 per valuation. This is substantially cheaper than agreed insurance valuations from the BMW Car Club, which cost £50 for non-members. Insurance valuations issued here are valid for up to two years, making the service excellent value for money!

BMW Valuations UK is completely independent. My independence guarantees stress-free insurance settlements with no conflict-of-interest issues in a claim involving dealer or mechanic valuations.

I value all classic and emerging classic BMW cars and motorcycles including:

  • All 2002 models including 1502, 1602, ’02 Turbo and early Touring
  • All BMW 3-series versions: E21, E30, E36 and E46 cars including M3
  • All BMW 5-series models: E12, E28, E34 and E39 versions including M5
  • All E24 6-series classics; 628, 633, 635 and BMW M6 models
  • All Z3 and Z4 models including M Coupe and M Roadster
  • Collectors cars including new purchases
  • Rare race cars and part-finished restoration projects
  • All classic BMW motorcycles including the wonderful R1100 range and all R roadster, RS, RT and GS models (we may own a few oilheads 😀)

You don’t need to be a BMW club member to use my service and I’ll send your completed valuation back within days rather than weeks: often within hours. Click here to go to the valuations form.

Do not insure your classic car on a Market Value Policy

Would you be happy to settle for eBay prices in a total loss situation? Data gathered from eBay and other disposal sites is not a true reflection of market value, yet this data is a big part of what an insurance assessor must use when deciding what your cherished BMW is worth in market value settlements.

Don’t make an expensive mistake: use my service to save thousands of pounds and many stressful months in market value negotiations.

We all think total loss will never happen to us, but more classic BMW cars are being stolen every year. The agonising process of negotiating an inadequate market value settlement is just not worth the stress or the few pounds saved.
