Manheim reopens more physical car auction sites

Manheim renews Hendy partnership

Trade buyers will be allowed back on site at Manheim Auction Services' sites in Bristol, Manchester and Washington to help dealers source stock for their used car forecourts.

It follows the earlier reopening of Manheim's Colchester, Birmingham and Leeds motor auctions.

Since the coronavirus pandemic hit the UK, much of the used vehicle remarketing has remained exclusively online or vehicle viewings have been by appointment only.

Liam Quegan, managing director at Manheim, said: “With used car demand at record highs, it is more important than ever that we help connect dealers with the right stock across a choice of channels.

“With more physical auction centres now open, more than 50 sales each week and further investment in our existing digital platforms - including Simulcast – too, Manheim is providing a flexible sales programme that reflects the needs of sellers and buyers.”

No pre-registration is required to attend physical auctions, but buyers are asked to respect Covid-secure measures for the protection of everyone involved - more information is at Manheim's coronavirus hub

Automotive Management Live 2021 - Shaping the future of motor retail

The sector’s premier insight and networking event returns to the NEC, in Birmingham, on November 11.

Book your place early to ensure they are ready to embrace a packed schedule of seminars and interactive stands.

Devonshire Motors owner Nathan Tomlinson said of the event: "Being able to get back to networking and learning in person is something that I'm really looking forward to,” he said, adding: “One thing that really caught my eye was the message about ‘learning new skills to balance your workload’.

“Personally, I think that's going to be a really big deal as we continually put more and more pressure on our teams to handle workflow, often digital, that we just don't have the structure, tools or skills to manage well.”
