Going up – going down

GLASS'S experts give the lowdown on what’s selling and what’s sitting

Going up

VANS UNDER 45,000 MILES

Franchised dealers are clamouring for good-condition, low-mileage lightweight vans under 45,000, although there’s every chance of a profitable sale for clean examples between 50,000 and 70,000.

CITROEN BERLINGO

Low mileage and with a sliding door is a combination that trade buyers are looking for in the auction halls.

VOLKSWAGEN CADDY TDI

The old-shape Caddy with a sliding door is a hot small van at the moment and conversion rates are correspondingly high.

Going down

VANS OVER 100,000 MILES

As has been reported recently, buyers are going nowhere near high mileage vans. Many retailers don’t think it is worth the risk to their reputations to sell tired, 100,000 mile plus examples.

MAZDA B2500 PICKUPS

Used off-roaders are struggling and discounts on new models are hitting used B2500s in both single and double cab versions.

BASIC FORD RANGER DOUBLE CAB

Nobody seems to want the basic model now and interest in the used market is geared towards higher-spec versions such as the XLT Thunder.
