City Auction Group upgrades auction facilities
The main new features include a corporate vendor lounge, built purposely for VIP corporate vendors in the paddock area with internet access, live digital sale information and complimentary hot food and refreshments.
Poseur tables have also been introduced with power points to enable buyers to view action from their smartphones and tablets effectively, as the sale commences close to the auction rostrum. A bigger auction office with meeting room, which overlooks the live auction, is also available.
Michael Tomalin, managing director of City Auction Group, commented: “We have taken on board the comments we have received from dealers and vendors after our first auction, so that we can deliver an unrivalled auction experience.
“We have introduced revised buyer fees for major motor trade professionals to ensure volume purchasers are rewarded.
“Now all operations are under one roof. On arrival, all clients will be guided through the racetrack tunnel and then onto the newly constructed auction hall reception area for registration and VIP pass approval. There is a new, provisional bid office next to sale office in the auction hall for instant conversion. Enhanced vehicle movement in the paddock area ensures a seamless flow through the auction hall. Furthermore, there is a faster live online system, with dedicated broadband lines into the auction hall. This will be complimented by two auctioneers on the day, to enhance the vehicle flow.”
The next auction event is at 10am on Thursday 5 March 2015.
