Average used LCV values fell back in April – for the first time since late last year – declining by 2.9% compared to March.
Despite this, April’s average value of £5,395 for commercial vehicles was the second highest on record since BCA Pulse began reporting in 2005.
Every sector saw a fall in value as Fleet & Lease LCV values declined by £314 (4.4%), P/X van values fell by £162 (4.3%) and nearly-new vans posted a fall of £2,152 (14.1%) – although this latter figure will have been as a result of changing model mix in a very low volume sector.
Values for all light commercial vehicles decreased to £5,395 in April – a fall of £162 (2.9%) compared to March’s average value (which was the highest since Pulse began reporting in 2005). Volumes rose during April with a greater percentage of Fleet & Lease stock sold, resulting in a richer mix of vehicles in the marketplace.
