The overall market saw a monthly fall of £16 to £9,568 - the fourth highest on record - with average values up £707 year-on-year, a 7.9% rise over the 12-month period.

Stuart Pearson, COO of BCA UK Remarketing, said: “Professional buyers have continued to compete strongly for good quality used car stock, a pattern that reflects the high levels of retail demand that dealers have been reporting throughout this year. 

"The seasonal dip that is often felt at this time of year hasn’t been so significant and the strong demand has driven conversion rates, meaning stock is churning quickly which is good for buyers and sellers alike.”
