Manheim to open three more physical auction sites
Manheim Auction Services is opening a further three physical auction sites in the UK, supporting work on a flexible sales programme.
Open from today (11 October 2021), the new Bristol, Manchester and Washington centres will join the existing Colchester, Birmingham and Leeds sites, offering exclusive trade-only access to selected auctions.
The sales are part of Manheim’s existing events programme, which started to switch back to physical auctions from mid- July 2021, and will also be open to all trade buyers online via Simulcast. The company has confirmed it is also continuing to waive online buyer fees.
LCV sales will continue to operate online only.
Manheim said the new sites would bring added support for dealers as used car sales continue to soar.
Liam Quegan, managing director at Manheim, said: “With used car demand at record highs, it is more important than ever that we help connect dealers with the right stock across a choice of channels.
“With more physical auction centres now open, more than 50 sales each week and further investment in our existing digital platforms – including Simulcast – too, Manheim is providing a flexible sales programme that reflects the needs of sellers and buyers.”
No pre-registration is required to attend physical auctions, but buyers are being asked to respect Covid-secure measures.
