NAMA CAR AUCTION REPORT OCTOBER 2016
Published 17/11/2016 00:00:00 in Press Releases
The National Association of Motor Auctions (NAMA) published its monthly car auction data report today for October 2016.
The report shows that overall in October:
First time conversation rates decreased by -2.2% to 80.1% - however were still up 1.1% on the same period last year
Average selling value increased an impressive 10.7% from £4,829 to £5,347
Average mileage went down by -2.9 to 65,847
The first time premium was £186 – down by -£6 on September, and down -£107 on the same period last year
Louise Wallis, Head of NAMA commented, “Auction activity has cooled slightly from its peak in September, however, conversion rates remain strong for the time of year and ahead of 2015.
“Whilst auction volumes sit outside the scope of this report, it is believed that the strong overall conversation rate in October was not due to a shortage of supply – thus indicating that retail demand remains buoyant.
“We look forward to seeing what the auction market has in store as we approach the Christmas season.”
