City Auction Group opens new centre at Rockingham Speedway

Irish company City Auction Group is opening a specialist automotive remarketing centre at Rockingham Speedway, Northamptonshire this month.

City Auction Group’s new centre will hold corporate auction events on behalf of major FN50 listed contract hire and leasing companies, financial institutions, daily rental companies and motor manufacturers.

The company has opened three centres at Dublin, Belfast and Omagh in the last five years.

Michael Tomalin (pictured), managing director, said: “In just a short time, we have established City Auction Group as the largest auction firm in Ireland. We have established partnerships with many of the large corporate vendors and have consistently supplied a wide range of quality vehicles to franchised and independent dealers. 

“All our auction events have been supported by cutting edge technology, including innovative apps for tablets and smart phones, enabling dealers to bid and buy vehicles, wherever they are globally.  We provide buyers with video footage, supported by a suite of digital images and a mechanical health check for every vehicle, no matter the age, profile or condition.   Our transparent and credible platform enables us to provide a highly professional vehicle remarketing solution for vendors.

“We are very excited about the launch of our new super centre at Rockingham Speedway.  It represents our first foothold on the mainland and will provide us with a spring board to launch further expansion across the UK over the coming years.

“Rockingham is a great central location and offers unparalled auction and defleet facilities. With over 100 acres at our disposal, we have the capability of holding hundreds of cars and delivering a wide range of services for our corporate customers.”

City Auction Group is holding its inaugural auction event at Rockingham on February 5. 

The firm will be offering more than 500 corporate vehicles from 25 corporate vendors featuring dedicated sections from Lex Autolease, Semalease, Peugeot & Citroen Financial Services, Avis and Budget plus others. 

The physical auction will be supported by an IOS/Android live bid and auction app for smart phones and tablet devices.
