Brits and the Car Boot Sale

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.”
