Mike Pilkington (Inset), managing director, Manheim Remarketing said: ‘We have witnessed some strong sales results through August in no small part due to the shortage of quality retail stock throughout the month.

‘The demand for 4×4 stock has also started to move early this year with memories of the harsh winter of 2010 still obviously set firm in the minds of consumers and dealers alike. The outlook remains a cautious one with the traditional increase in stock levels anticipated and matched against steady, as opposed to buoyant retail demand.’
