Used car values rose across the board in September, making now a good time to sell or part exchange.

What Car? used car experts reported a 0.3% rise in value across all categories of car last month. Convertible values rose the most, at 0.9% for all ages, while nearly new convertibles increased an impressive 4% month-on-month.

British Car Auctions has also reported that the average value of a used car in September was £7007, which is up by nearly 11% on the same month in 2012.

A dearth of quality stock is causing the shortage and the resulting increase in values.
