Manheim Auctions, Gloucester and Haydock battle for top online sales honours
A couple of months ago the commercial vehicle team at Haydock achieved online sales of more than 1,000 vehicles via Simulcast while the team at Gloucester has just reached the 1,500 mark. However, Haydock has also just passed the 1,500 mark.
With just two more sales at Gloucester and one at Haydock the outcome won't be known until just before Christmas.
James Davis, general manager, commercial vehicles, Manheim Remarketing, said: 'For two of our leading commercial vehicle auction centres to be competing head-to-head for top online sales in 2010 is great to see. Simulcast just continues to grow and grow and is an integral part of the remarketing "landscape". It is now recognised throughout the industry as a well-established, trusted and reliable business tool that complements physical auction by bringing benefits to both buyers and sellers – buyers can select from a wide range of vehicles throughout the country from the warm comfort of their own offices, while sellers can offer their vehicles to a much wider audience.'
