The data for last month shows average values in the fleet and lease sector improved sharply, rising by £387 (3.8%) compared to June, reversing last month’s fall and climbing to the highest point on record.  Retained value against original MRP (Manufacturers Retail Price) improved slightly to 42.29%, whilst year-on-year values were up by a significant £821 (8.4%), as both average age and mileage continued to reduce.

Average values rose by 1.8% across the board at BCA during July, with the headline average value of a used car up by £167 to £8,962 – a very similar rise to that seen in July 2016. Year-on-year, the headline figure was up by £621, equivalent to a 7.24% increase in average values, despite average mileage having declined by around 2,200 miles, whilst age fell by two months compared to a year ago.

Looking ahead, Stuart Pearson, BCA managing director UK remarketing, commented: “As the market approaches the plate change period, we anticipate a period of intense activity in the wholesale sector. Typically, we would expect to see the usual impact of a brief period of oversupply in October and November when volume reaches a peak, followed by a strengthening of prices and conversions as people start to plan for the New Year.”For more of the latest industry news, click here.
