RSPCA awards solus re-marketing deal to Shoreham Vehicle Auctions
Having worked with the RSPCA for over a year, the south-coast based auction house will now take care of all RSPCA’s ex-fleet vehicles. The company was chosen as part of a tendering process, due to its high level of personalised services and its strong track record in remarketing ex-fleet vans and cars.
With a strong buyer base of over 1,200 trade and private buyers and a previous history of selling RSPCA vehicles at 109% of CAP average, the RSPCA is confident that Shoreham can sell vehicles from its 740-strong fleet to the right buyer at the right price.
Shoreham understands the remarketing industry moves quickly, so any vehicle entering its care is prepared, priced up, a reserve posted on its website and pushed out into the auction hall for sale in just a few days.
RSPCA’s vehicles are promoted on Shoreham’s website, with a link from the front page directly to photos and detailed descriptions of the cars and vans themselves. The high resolution images, online bidding, zoom-in technology and detailed descriptions help buyers get the best possible information on its vehicles prior to buying.
Shoreham has 2,000 vehicles passing through its halls every month, so its experienced staff know exactly what influences the value of RSPCA’s wide variety of passenger cars and small to medium panel vans, including Citroen Berlingos and Ford Transits.
Tony Branch, RSPCA fleet manager said: 'From the companies tendering for our business, Shoreham has always delivered on personal service levels, as well as achieving the best prices for our ex-fleet vehicles. Shoreham is a great help with the challenges of running a fleet and always comes back with solutions not problems. Alex and his team have built the RSPCA brand at auction and created a strong buyer following for our vehicles, so we’re very pleased to be working with them.'
