Research commissioned by the car finance refund experts, has shown the areas of the UK where the most second-hand cars are put up for sale. To do this the researchers examined 40,000 used car listings from Autotrader to find the areas with the highest number of second-hand cars for sale per 10,000 people. Epsom was found to have the most with 549 listings. Next on the list was Winsford with 498 listings per 10,000 people and a total of 1,699 second-hand cars for sale. In third place is the Lancashire city of Preston, with 348 second-hand cars for sale per 10,000 residents. Preston, has a total of 3,955 used cars for sale. Hatchbacks were found to be the most common type of used car sold accounting for 38% of all listings SUVs were the second most common accounting for 33%. An Spokesperson said: “This research offers valuable insight into the areas of the UK which see a disproportionately high number people trying to sell off their vehicles. The more saturated the second-hand car market is in a given area, the trickier it is going to be to sell, with many potential buyers being less willing to travel further afield to secure a slightly better deal.”
