Whilst the total number of repairs in August dropped by 3,500 from July (source: Audatex UK), this was in keeping with the seasonal trend, reports Trend Tracker – in its latest Market summary.
In comparison to 2019, August was a better month than July, with July 2021 at 77% of 2019 levels, and August 2021 at 86% of August 2019 repairs numbers.
Today (Wednesday 8th September) Paul Sell, Director and Co-Owner of Trend Tracker, shared these findings for August and Trend Tracker’s forecasts for September and beyond, during the I Love Claims webinar.
“August was busier than expected due to increased UK based holidays and an increase in the number of people commuting to work,” said Paul Sell, Director and Co-Owner of Trend Tracker. “With pupils returning to schools this month and more people going back to the office, we therefore predict a busy September.”
