Strong Bidding at Auction Today

Wed, 14 Mar 2007
Not enough of the right used cars for the market are keeping prices up. The closest to sensible money were a pair of 04 Ford C-Max, with 61k and 62k miles, which sold for £6,400 and £6,350.

A section of VWs, BMWs and Renaults from Help Hire was subject to high reserves and very few were actually knocked down.

The section, and presumably the cars, returns next Wednesday.

Inchcape has a new sales programme, with both prestige and no reserve sections on Mondays, about 90 cars on Wednesdays and around 100 on Fridays. Times in the sales programme below.

Here’s today’s list. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid.
