New Monday auction programme at Manheim's Bruntingthorpe super-centre
Up to 400 vehicles will be offered each week from ALD, Inchcape Retail, Lex Autolease, UKcgr.com and Vindis Group. The first auction, which will take place on Monday 14 March at 11.00am, will be exclusively on behalf of Lex Autolease and will feature more than 100 convertibles.
Manheim Remarketing recently launched the new Bruntingthorpe super-centre following a multi-million investment that has created a dedicated state-of-the-art 56,000 sq.ft indoor auction centre combining both online and physical remarketing with undercover storage for 300 vehicles.
Regular vendors also include Arval, FGA Contracts, Duncton Finance, Europcar, Ford Credit, GMAC, Hitachi Capital, Lombard, Masterlease, Prudential and Toomey. ALD and Lex Autolease offer vehicles on both Monday and Wednesday.
Commenting on the addition of the Monday sale, Mike Pilkington, managing director, Manheim Remarketing said: 'We know that dealers want to acquire stock early in the week so it can be on the forecourt for the weekend. This new Monday sale programme is designed to appeal to all types of buyer as it will also include some higher mileage, older stock which hasn't been on offer at Bruntingthorpe before.
'The expansion of the auction programme is further evidence of the strategic importance of Bruntingthorpe and of Manheim Remarketing's growth plans for the future. The auction super-centre, the best in the Midlands, showcases Manheim's capability and enables us, in partnership with Bruntingthorpe's owners C Walton Ltd, to set new standards in vehicle remarketing.'
The Lex Autolease auction on 14 March starts at 11.00am whilst all subsequent Monday auctions will start at 10.00am from 21 March.
