City Auction Group reports strong results at latest fortnightly auction

The figures show that 80% of vehicles achieved an average CAP clean value of 98%. Demand was strong for 12 and 13 plates, small to mid-range vehicles with an average of 30,000 miles. 

The top five best performing vehicles were the BMW 316d ES, achieving the highest CAP clean value (118.1%), followed by the Ford Focus 1.6 TDCi (112.8%), BMW 320d SE (109.8%), Jaguar XF 3.0 DS Portfolio (109.7%) and the Peugeot RCZ 1.6 THP (108.3%).

City Auction also noted strong demand for hatchbacks, which made up over half of the vehicles achieving the best price in the top twenty CAP clean list.  Overall, BMW dominated the top 20 vehicles, with the BMW Series variants appearing five times and achieving an average CAP value of 109.3%.

Michael Tomalin, managing director of City Auction Group, commented: “We are delighted with the results of last week’s auction.  Feedback from our vendors indicates we achieved the best CAP clean values in the market for the first two weeks of June. Our vendors are committing more corporate vehicles to us than ever before with the introduction of further vendors joining the sale programme very soon. 

“We are attracting large franchised dealer groups, as well as leading car supermarkets and independents.  Our auction attendance is growing month by month and we are planning to introduce weekly auctions from October 2015, as there is clearly demand in the market to support this.”
