Average used car values rose across the board as strong demand continued.

Values rose by 2% month on month to £9,498 - up by nearly £700 compared to a year ago - to build on a strong start to the year that saw BCA sell record volumes across the 24-strong nationwide network of remarketing centres.

Stuart Pearson BCA MD UK Remarketing, said: "February was another strong month in the remarketing sector and BCA saw competitive bidding across the board from high value prestige stock to older, higher mileage budget vehicles.

"Average used car values have been rising at BCA for an extended period and 2018 seems set to maintain that pattern.

"This reflects the demand from buyers, the high quality of stock consigned to BCA by fleet & lease and dealer vendors and a general falling in average age and mileage at remarketing time.”
