Can anyone explain why used car values have increased so much over the last 12 months ? I occasionally do a "online car valuation" to see what my car is worth as a guide. My car has increased in value by £2,500 over the the last 13 months ?? WTF ?? It is worth more now than it was in December 2017 I checked 2 car valuations sites just be to sure and yes this checked out. Of course this is excellent but it really surprised me. Any thoughts on why ?
