Manheim and de-fleet company C. Walton have signed a three year contract with Saab GB to remarket its ex-rental, press, demo and management cars to its franchised dealer network.
Manheim Retail Services will be responsible for providing professional imagery, stock locator administration and implementation. Manheim Remarketing will ensure the transfer of vehicles from Bruntingthorpe.
Inspection services will be provided by VQS and storage and reconditioning facilities by C. Walton. Manheim Remarketing will then provide a combination of physical auction supported by Simulcast, CyberAuction and Manheim Direct. Every aspect of the remarketing process - logistics, inspection, reconditioning and all sales channels - will be controlled by Manheim’s Remarketing Management System (RMS).
Craig Gentleman, General Manager Sales, Saab GB said: “This is another step forward for Saab GB becoming a successful independent company.
“We have changed the way we do business and brought our stock management processes into the 21st century through the use of RMS.
“With UK sales increasing and customer confidence returning, I am confident that Manheim and its partners at Bruntingthorpe will ensure that all aspects of Saab’s wholesale used car remarketing strategy are implemented to the highest professional standards.”
