German day at Wilsons Auctions achieves strong results
Held last Wednesday (23 June) the exclusive German marque auction featuring a wide range of German-originated vehicles and included entries from Arval, Masterlease, ALD, Lookers and Agility.
Over 350 vehicles were entered into the sale, said to be Ireland's largest ever German marque auction.
Many UK-based vendors were invited to attend the German Day Auction at Mallusk including David Heard, the sales and marketing manager from Arval, who provided over 50 cars for the sale.
Jacqui Le Put, sales and marketing director at Wilsons Auctions, hosted fleet vendors at the event: 'We had strong buyer attendance with just under half of our buyers travelling from Southern Ireland,' stated Ms Le Put. 'Attendances were up 30%, the auction hall was packed and our car park was full. Overall we sold over 75% of the stock, a great result when the national average at present is 50% conversion. There is clearly an appetite in this market for quality vehicles and we intend to conduct more themed auctions to cater for our buyers needs.'
