Avis Car Rental UK will allow car dealers and trade buyers to purchase its de-fleeted vehicles via a new online sales portal developed in partnership with CD Auction Group.
Built specifically for Avis, the new Avis Car Sales portal utilises CD Auction Group’s leading online technology as well as its back-office technical and administrative support.
Vehicles from Avis UK will be processed at several sites across the UK, but all sold via the new Avis Car Sales online auction platform.
Nina Bell, managing director of Avis Budget Group UK, said: “We’ve long held the desire to improve the efficiency of our remarketing process. Moving online is an obvious and important step in the current market but finding the right approach and partner was critical.
“After working with CD Auction Group for a number of years and using their online-only auctions first-hand, we have great confidence that we’ve partnered with the right team to provide an efficient and effective way of remarketing our used vehicles.
“Registered buyers will have access to the full mix of Avis vehicles covering a range of makes, models, ages and mileage profiles, enabling buyers to purchase via online auction or the ‘buy-it-now’ channel.”
All existing registered Avis UK used vehicle buyers will be automatically enrolled onto the platform and other buyers will be able to register to bid in the weekly closed auction sales.
Andy Brown, managing director of CD Auction Group, added: “We are delighted to be working with the Avis UK remarketing team with whom we have had a long-term relationship. This development further cements our partnership and we look forward to supporting them in their remarketing efforts.”
