Buying from dealers also begins to wane as they prepare for the seasonal down-turn in retail sales. Bob Anderson, NAMA committee member, said: "All indications are that the auction market is likely to perform to expectations for the remainder of 2011. "We expect to see stock inventories fall steadily between now and the end of the year, with condition grade four and five cars continuing to be more difficult to sell if unrealistically priced. Trade demand is likely to ease but competition for the best vehicles will remain high."Gannon concluded: "The critical issue for vendors is to get vehicles on sale the first time they are offered - on average, vehicles sold first time around are making £900 more than vehicles being re-offered for a second or third time."Oct£7,287£5,939£7,419£6,115£7,116£6,136£7,235£5,741£7,739£6,124£7,553£6,394£7,545£6,444£7,413£6,250£7,349£6,255£7,071£6,100£7,000£5,905£7,222£5,945£7,557£6,154OctNovDecJanFebMarAprMayJunJulyAugSeptBCAManheimAverage fleet and lease used valuesValues fell as the market become increasingly polarised into 'good' and 'poor' condition carsstaying in service longer, some additional decline in condition is inevitable, but often steps can be taken to 'manage damage'. Driver training, a culture to report and repair damage and in-service inspections are all examples of good practice that can make a real difference."Meanwhile, average wholesale used van values increased by just 0.5% (£22) to £4,037 in October, according to Manheim Remarketing. Compared with October 2010, average values are 1.3% (£55) lower, the average age is seven months higher and the average mileage is up by 3,658 miles.James Davis, director of Commercial Vehicles at Manheim Remarketing, said: "Van values are on a par with the same month in 2010, despite average age and mileage being considerably higher."He concluded: "I do not believe we will see the usual influx of van de-fleet volume in late November early December, so we should see a very buoyant January that serves to kick-start a very healthy 2012 wholesale van marketplace."
