Arval holds own auction in Belgium

Arval Belgium has tried a new initiative in the field of remarketing end of contract lease vehicles. A few days ago it transformed part of its office premises close to Brussels Airport into a temporary auction room, and put 95 vehicles under the hammer.

Wielding the gavel was Sophie Tombeur, remarketing manager at Arval Belgium, who began to offer the lots at 11.00 am, two hours after the first potential buyers came to look at the vehicles. A further two hours later, the sale closed with 83 of the 95 vehicles sold. “A successful initiative”, as Sophie Tombeur confirmed.
