Brits and the Car Boot Sale
According to the Press Association the Brits are more in love than ever with the traditional car boot sale, says new research.
A survey by car finance provider Zuto has found that 80% of British people have been to at least one car bot sale in the last 12 months. More than half (54%) said they went to find bargains for themselves or as gifts, while 29% were there to sell their unwanted clutter. And almost a fifth of people (18%) loved it so much that they are thinking of making ‘car booting’ a longer-term hobby.
One in five said they viewed the experience as an affordable and fun day out for the family, while a similar number said they were hunting for items to up-cycle and either keep for themselves or to sell on for a profit.
James Wilkinson, CEO of Zuto said: “It’s great to see that the good old-fashioned car boot sale is still held in such high esteem. We’re clearly a nation of bargain hunters, and car booting is the perfect way to both make and save money and grab some unique finds while you’re at it.”
