The total number of LCVs sold at auction in July increased by 329 units (+3.8%).

Alex Wright, chairman of NAMA Commercial Vehicle Group said:“Despite predictions that with increased volume prices would decrease, we are seeing the opposite happening. July saw volumes up by 20% and prices up by 19%. The economy is growing and this is reflected in the commercial market.

“The eight year and over market has dominated the sector for a long time starving buyers of younger stock, but the yellow line is finally shrinking and later plate vehicles are slowly appearing. We predict this trend will continue and four-five year old vehicles will take over as more enter the market.

“Once again the market data presented in this NAMA report illustrates the underlying strength of demand for LCVs at all years and clearly bodes well for sales prospects over the coming months.”
