Aston Barclay makes £750k improvements to Westbury auction site
Aston Barclay has completed a £750,000 investment programme at its Westbury site.
Aston Barclay Westbury sells 1,500 cars and vans a month from its eight acre site in Brook Lane, which boasts improved facilities for its buyers, improved offices for its 40 staff and a new viewing gallery for its vendor customers.
“The business has grown over the past five years and we have invested money back into the site, which benefits both colleagues and customers. It’s probably the site’s biggest investment programme since it was first built by Westbury Motor Auctions in 1986,” explained Barry Watts, group operations director at Aston Barclay plc.
“We are proud of our new look site and would welcome local dealers and consumers to pay us a visit to experience one of the most modern vehicle auctions in the country,” he added.
Westbury runs 10 auctions a month, which sees local traders and consumers buying and selling a mix of stock. National leasing companies such as Alphabet, LeasePlan, Zenith, Ogilvie, PSA, Venson and Motability also use the site to sell ex-company cars and vans that are typically two to five years old, which attract buyers from across the south west of England.
Vehicle sellers can request advice from Westbury’s expert team to help them set a reserve price before a car or van goes under the hammer and can have their vehicle valeted or bodywork smart repaired on site to maximise its resale value. Westbury runs its own in-house collection and delivery service for both buyers and sellers.
Visitors to Aston Barclay Westbury have now access to free customer parking and WiFi and its modern cafe is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner where auction goers meet to discuss the latest prices and vehicle disposal trends.
