BCA COO UK Remarketing Stuart Pearson said: "While the headline average figure declined marginally in August, taken in the context that the last seven months have produced the seven highest monthly values on record it is evident that demand for LCVs remains high at BCA.

“We have seen a notable value evolution across the used LCV marketplace, with the average van in August selling for nearly 12% more than it was a year ago and corporate LCVs realising over 15% higher values.”
