Vauxhall Finance awards Aston Barclay with remarketing, inspection and collection contract

Posted 23 April 2019

Vauxhall Finance has signed a remarketing contract with Aston Barclay to manage its end-of-contract disposals.

From May 2019 Aston Barclay will manage up to 5,000 used cars each year, which are a mix of contract hire and PCP returns, as well as voluntary terminations and repossessions.

On arrival at an Aston Barclay auction, each car is appraised, images taken, uploaded online and then sold as part of a fortnightly fleet sale programme, spreading used stock nationwide.

“Our contract returns require sensitive management,” explained Vauxhall Finance remarketing manager Dafydd Ryder-Owen.

“We recognise that Aston Barclay is at the forefront of revolutionising the remarketing sector, so we look forward to exploring how its range of digital solutions can help us increase bids and improve conversion rates.”

“We are pleased to welcome Vauxhall Finance to the Aston Barclay family. They have an extensive range of cars that we know from our buyer base are in demand and we look forward to playing an integral part in their remarketing strategy,” explained Neil Hodson, Aston Barclay’s group CEO.
