City Auction Group opens 10 new defleet centres

Used vehicle remarketing specialist, City Auction Group, has opened 10 new defleet centres across the UK and Ireland. The centres offer vehicle refurbishment and preparation services, as well as storage, prior to the vehicles being sold by City Auction either online or via its two physical auctions at Rockingham, Northamptonshire and Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The new defleet centres are strategically positioned in London, Glasgow, Hartlepool, Stoke, Doncaster, Colchester, Bristol, Omagh, and Dublin and Cork in Ireland.

Major fleets and leasing companies can allocate their end-of-contract vehicles to the most convenient defleet centre.

Michael Tomalin, managing director of City Auction (pictured above), said, “These new defleet centres will enable us to increase the volume of quality vehicles that we offer at our twice weekly auctions. It will also drive more dealers to our state-of-the-art auction centres, enhancing the conversion rates and financial return, for our corporate vendors.”

City Auction has a nationwide partnership with Carlson Transport for the logistics process, and smartphone technology enables fleet customers to track their defleeted vehicle movements through the preparation and refurbishment programmes.
