Wilsons Auctions Portadown celebrates annivesary with new deal
The Northern Ireland-based auctioneer says it's been experiencing record sales levels at its "Fleet 2010" auctions, which sell quality cars on behalf of manufacturers, fleet and finance partners, and financial institutions including Lombard and many of the top fleet companies in the UK market.
The company attributes the ongoing success of its fleet remarketing programme in Portadown to the quality of vehicles on sale.
Edmund Madine, general manager of Wilsons Auctions Portadown – who originally launched the fleet remarketing programme in Portadown in 1987 – said: 'The motor trade throughout Ireland recognise that they can get guaranteed quality vehicles with Wilsons Auctions because of our relationships with fleet vendors. Skoda Contracts see that we attract the Irish motor trade to Portadown and have chosen us to sell their ex-fleet vehicles in this market. The fleet remarketing programme at Wilsons Auctions is in huge demand as private buyers recognise the value these vehicles offer, which is attracting more motor traders to our auctions as demand spirals. We offer an excellent proposition to UK-based vendors – packed auctions halls and a very competitive bidding environment.'
Paul Grimsley, national rental & used vehicle manager for Skoda, commented: 'We have chosen to work with Wilsons Auctions because they can deliver up to 80% conversion and 95% CAP. Their services, processes and auctioneering are top class. Motor traders throughout Ireland continue to come to Wilsons Auction Portadown to buy their vehicles – as long as this is the case we will continue to work with them.'
Wilsons Auctions Portadown has also announced that it is holding an auction on 20 May at 10am to mark its 23rd anniversary. The firm says it's hoping that buyers and sellers spanning the 23 years along with new customers will join it to take advantage of the anniversary deals and celebrations.
