Putting cap hpi data to the test

Methodology used to produce the results has been developed with expert support from the University of Leeds Institute for Transport Studies – an independent body from cap hpi.

There’s mileage in paying for accurate data.

Whichever way you cut the facts, you can make more money using cap hpi values.

To prove it we tested our data against three different competitors and the results show that dealers, large and small, benefit financially from more accurate data.

How do we know this is true?

cap hpi approached the Leeds Business School for Transport Studies to analyse the method we used to come to our findings.

This is an independent, academic body, with no affiliation to cap hpi. The data scientists at the business school were asked to analyse our methodology and approach.

This was to ensure that not only the data was statistically fair and viable, but that the methodology would result in a fair and accurate comparison of the data across all 4 competitors.

What our customers say

  • “After over 36 years in the motor trade of using a competitor I was a little worried about changing over to cap hpi, but I am so pleased that we changed, and now find it to be a big improvement.”
  • “I’ve always used cap hpi and one of its competitors, but cap hpi is more relevant. What it says is what auctions and leasing companies say. It’s definitely the industry standard for valuations by most CRM/DMS providers.”
  • “The VRM look-up is terrific, everything can be done within seconds so I can get on-the-spot values. I use it 24 hours a day, either on my iPhone or iPad. I trust CAP values 100%.”
  • “I always recommend cap hpi to my clients as it is reliable and always up-to-date. The data is easy to use and supported by most CRM/DMS providers.”
