Volkswagen Financial Services UK (VWFS) will take over Aston Barclay’s Donington Park Mega Centre auction facility for a series of ‘Centre-For-A-Day’ sales before the end of the year.
The 12-acre site plays host to a dedicated monthly auction for VWFS on October 26, November 23 and December 14 and will offer 300 used cars for sales from across the VW group at each event.
Aston Barclay said that stock would typically be between two and three years of age, with an average of 30,000 miles on the clock.
Martin Woollam, VWFS general manager of remarketing, said: “Donington Park is the perfect location to host three superb sales due to its leading performance, exceptional location and great levels of care that the Aston Barclay team show to both vendors and buyers.”
VWFS sales feature a range of product types, from voluntary terminations to ex-contract hire and business use vehicles which may have had multiple users.
Neil Hodson, Aston Barclay’s chief executive, said: “We’re delighted to welcome VWFS to our Donington Park sales programme and the team are excited at the excellent cross section of stock that VWFS will offer during their sales.
“We are seeing increasing numbers of vendors embracing our revolution of the auction market and recognising the value that our investment in leading technology, our infrastructure and our people generates for both them and our growing buyer base.”
