Auction Halls Heaving with Holiday Crowds

Fri, 10 Apr 2009
Well, the halls were packed today. BCA Blackbushe took advantage of the bad bank holiday weather, opened up extra parking, and gave buyers what they want: Lots and lots of cars.

Not surprisingly they were mostly dear, with private buyers in the halls bidding against faceless net buyers, usually ending up with the cars and confusing the price levels.

Nearly-new ex-rental stock, especially diesels, was the most wanted, with some very serious money paid.

And even high end cars that had been taking the greatest hits seemed to be undergoing a revival. The unwarranted mileage, independently imported 2002 SL500 in the photo started shy of the books at £12,000, but eventually sold for retail rather than trade money at £17,400.

While a 2000W S4500 made slightly over trade book at £4,300.

Can’t see it going on much longer, myself. But if people on tracker mortgages are saving hundreds a month, they might be spending it on cars rather then paying their houses off quickly.

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.
