2011 fleet sales boom for Wilsons Auctions Portadown
The company says its fortnightly Fleet 2011 auction launched last week, with the first event delivering outstanding results for fleet vendors including Lex Autolease, Motability, RCI, Peugeot, Hitachi, Inchcape, Honda, and Toyota Financial Services.
Over 300 vehicles were entered into the event and buyers from all over Ireland filled the auction hall, jammed the phone lines and visited the auction online. Product available included Renault, Peugeot, Toyota, VW and Vauxhall marques with many vehicles surpassing 100% CAP – and some Renault models reaching 124% CAP clean.
General manager at Wilsons Auctions Portadown, Edmund Madine, commented: 'The demand is there and shows no sign of abating in early 2011. The motor trade recognise that they can access guaranteed quality vehicles from Wilsons Auctions because of our strong relationships with UK based fleet vendors. Private buyers also recognise the value of these vehicles and are choosing ex-fleet vehicles as an alternative to new cars in the current financial climate. This demand is attracting more motor traders to our auctions from throughout Ireland and beyond.'
With strong sales set to continue, the team at Wilsons Auction Portadown are looking forward to the next fleet sale on Thursday 27 January at 10am.
Mr Madine concluded: 'We already have a large entry of vehicles for the next auction with many of the UK's largest fleet users committing to providing more stock, so this promises to be yet another successful auction.'
