Auction Prices Still Rising

Fri, 06 Feb 2009
January auction prices were up, on average, £300 over December, which is at least what the trade would expect in a normal year. But this year is far from a normal year. And today, despite horrible weather (though Blackbushe was not snowbound) prices of popular mid-range cars still seemed to be rising.

£3,500 for an 06/56 Ka, £5,400 for an 05/55 Focus 1.6TDCI 90 LX, £3,175 for an 03/53 Mondeo 2.0i Ghia.

But, take a look at the list and you’ll see you can still bag a bargain. Though prices are up on December and still rising, they are still way below February last year.

If you’re prepared to chance a high miler you can save a fortune. A 98k mile 06/55 Focus 1.6TDCI 90 LX was £2,200 less than a 31k mile 05/55. Ex Highways Agency 07 Shogun DIDs with 143k and 172k nice warm miles were £6,250 and £5,900.

While one very happy private buyer nabbed a slightly leggy 107k mile 04 Volvo V70 D5 for just £4,000.

And the 7k mile 08 reg Lexus LS600h that didn’t sell for a top bid of £54,800 last week only raised £47,000 today.

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘pc’ means provisional, but close. ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘MNW’ means unknown mileage. ‘dmg’ means damaged. D/R means damaged and repaired. ‘fl’ means facelift. Extras like ‘lthr’ and ‘sat’ are specified when they are not standard.
