August is a month that sees a reduction in fresh fleet entries with many contract hire and leasing change cycles set up to coincide with the plate change in September.

This August was no exception and as a consequence volumes sold fell to the lowest point this year, down 16.8% on last month. The general trend that is emerging however, of year on year increases in auction volumes, is again reflected with a 6% increase in volumes sold in August versus this time last year.

Alex Wright, NAMA LCV Chairman comments, “August was a steady month in the LCV market and trends are beginning to get back to normal.

“It is also positive to see that vehicles in the age 6+ category are no longer the largest. All extended contract utility vehicles are coming to an end and we are now seeing a welcome rise in volumes for the 2-4 year age group.

“It is also worth looking at how much more volume is in the market compared to 3 years ago – yet prices remain higher. It will be interesting to see if this can be sustained.”
