Could used car market success spread to vans, VRA asks

This month’s Vehicle Remarketing Association meeting will explore the question of “Will 2019 be the year of the used van?” to see if the current success in the used car market will extend to CVs.

The VRA meeting will include a presentation by James Davis of Manheim on the prospects for used LCVs in 2019

The event, which takes place on 21 September at Manheim in Bruntingthorpe, will include key presentations from James Davis of Manheim, looking at the prospects of used light commercial vehicles in the year ahead; by Karl Davis of Coachworks Consulting on the latest trends in dealer best practice; and Rupert Pontin of Cazana on the current state of the used market in the UK.

Glenn Sturley, chair at the VRA, said: “There has been extensive talk about 2018 being the year of the used car, with very favourable market conditions in place – and there are signs that next year may be similarly successful for vans.

‘Certainly, LCV remarketing is a subject that has very strong relevance for many of our members and we are looking forward to an informed debate about how to maximise values over the next few months and into 2019.”
