Given current world events it’s likely the arse will drop out of the car market. Just checked and my WBAC valuation has dropped from £11k to £8k overnight. Guess I’m keeping it for the foreseeable!

Last week Auto Trader was offering £10760,today it’s £10810.As I have said before,where do they get these figures from.

Market forces and WBAC will have a mountain of debt. They'll cynically profiteer from people in difficulty:-(
The entire PCP market was already built on sand and the next financial disaster waiting to happen. Before all this.

Would imagine car dealers are struggling a bit at the moment,might even be a good time to buy,must be some good deals to be made ?.

Likely to be a shortage of new stock in the future if car manufactures have a sustained period of closure. Good used vehicles will likely see good residuals, but rather not spend too much time needlessly thinking about it, more concerned about my dwindling beer stocks in my garage. Shelves are being cleared of booze today after pub closures announced yesterday!!

Patience my man. All the major brewing firms will be shifting from barrels to bottles as all pubs, clubs and restaurants are now shut. Probably take a week or two to catch up. The Government has designated beer a category 1 product (essential to the nations welfare) so there should be no supply issues.

Can't wait? Then buy a pump, what ever gas and pipework you need and get yourself a barrel from the landlord(lady) of the local pub. Then fill yer boots!

Couldn't happen to a nicer business
Why do you say that? I used to always sell my cars privately, as I keep them in very good condition. But in recent years WBAC has saved me the hassle of tyre kickers, and any offers I have received have been excellent, and on some occasions more than I would have expected to get in a private sale.
