Used car supermarket Big Motoring World has reported that sales of used cars are up almost 50 per cent compared to the same period last year.
The firm has reported a sales increase of 46 per cent in August, with over 6,000 customers across the threshold and a total sales volume of 2,700 from its sites across London and Kent, reflecting a sales trend that is reciprocated across the UK.
“The market for good quality, late model used cars is booming at the moment,” said Chief Executive Officer Peter Waddell. “A combination of pent-up demand caused by lockdown and the decision by many customers to own an additional or second car over public transport has seen us face unprecedented levels of interest in high quality second-hand cars and thanks to our incredible choice and hard-working team, we are able to offer exactly what the market demands.”
The firm recently opened a preparation centre in Peterborough, Cambs.
