Aston Barclay Plc scoops LeasePlan awards for Q3 2015 performance

The Hillidge Road, Leeds site scored strongly for its value and service offering in the vehicle management group’s overview for Q3, ranking first in value between July and September. 

With a nine in ten conversion rate, Aston Barclay’s Leeds auction centre topped this field for Q3, whilst also achieving one of the highest CAP Performance percentage of any site measured. September was also the third time in 2015 when Leeds had topped the value ranking tables of measured sites, the only assessed site to do so. 

In terms of service, Leeds registered a perfect rating, achieving Platinum status when graded on administration, valet, line-up, timing and late notifications, after achieving near-perfect service statistics in Q2 2015.  

Aston Barclay’s Prees Heath and Westbury sites also contributed to an incredibly strong quarter for the largest independent UK auction group, in terms of both value and service. Both sites were bestowed with Gold Awards for their service levels, while they also performed strongly when judged on value.  

The strong quarter for all measured Aston Barclay sites enabled the group to achieve a Gold accreditation for their overall performance. 

Paul Mason, LeasePlan’s general manager, auction sales, commented: “Aston Barclay’s Leeds site has set the standard for measured sites across both value and service levels between July and September. And thanks to strong quarterly performances for the entire group, Aston Barclay fully deserves their overall gold accreditation.” 

Lisa Grimsley, Aston Barclay’s remarketing director north, added: “Receiving LeasePlan’s Gold Accreditation is testament to the entire Aston Barclay group, which continuously strives to improve its overall remarketing offering. For the Leeds site to achieve LeasePlan’s Platinum Service Provider Award, thanks to a perfect service score, demonstrates its commitment to keeping customers happy.”
