Black Book+12 is CAP’s brand new daily forecasting tool that allows retailers to accurately value used cars up to 12 months in the future.

This makes it easy to confidently price a part-exchange car against a new model with long lead times.

This isn’t just handy, it’s crucial, since many new vehicles often take more than 3 months to deliver nowadays and there is no other way of accurately predicting future market values.
