Online remarketing specialist Autorola has reminded  private motorists, dealerships and fleet operators of the potential fall in the second hand value of their car if is has been smoked in.

From its experience of selling vehicles online in 17 European countries, Autorola estimates a car driven by an active smoker can reduce used values by between £250-£500 depending on the make and model.

“The impact of smoking can impact residuals, particularly on the larger higher specified executive cars, to the point that it may not find a buyer if it hasn’t been thoroughly valeted,” explained Peter Grøftehauge, Autorola’s chief executive.

“You are likely never to get rid of the smoking smell completely, but a comprehensive interior clean from a professional automotive cleaning specialist should make a big difference. This clean may cost you in the region of £150, but should help ensure it attracts interest from buyers in the first instance, and will ultimately help achieve a better price for the car,” he added.

This comes at a time when the British Medical Association warns of the health dangers to children in particular when transported in a car when an adult is smoking.
