Santander expands remarketing partnership with Aston Barclay
Santander Consumer Finance (UK) plc has expanded its remarketing partnership with Aston Barclay with the addition of monthly sales at the Wakefield site.
The new deal, which builds upon the three-year remarketing partnership already in place at Aston Barclays’ Prees Heath site, will see a dedicated Santander sale take place on the second Friday of every month at Wakefield, featuring around 50 high-specification vehicles.
Referred to by Aston Barclay as its ‘Northern Powerhouse’, the Wakefield centre opened in January 2019 and brings 78,000sq ft of space with two glass-fronted auction halls, interactive screens and artificial intelligence (AI).
Santander Consumer Finance will use its expanded fleet sales to continue its monthly benchmarking of prices and market demand for its used stock which includes voluntary terminations, repossessions and ex-PCP and PCH cars.
Shaun Deacon, head of arrears management, Santander Consumer (UK) plc, said: “This is an exciting opportunity and will ensure that not only can we attract new buyers but also that we can better manage our increased volumes of vehicles now being remarketed.”
