Endeavour Automotive appoints Aston Barclay as its remarketing partner for next two years
Posted 3 September 2019
Endeavour Automotive has appointed Aston Barclay as its remarketing partner in a two-year contract which will see 4,000 part exchange vehicles sold physically and digitally.
It will be offering used cars every Wednesday at Aston Barclay Chelmsford as of 4 September from its 15 dealers that represent Volvo, Hyundai, Lotus and LEVC across London, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Essex
In addition to physical auction Endeavour has signed up to Aston Barclay’s Cascade solution using e-Valuate, e-Hub and e-Xchange.
Endeavour will be utilising Aston Barclay’s e-Xchange wholesale online used vehicle trading platform to sell its part exchange stock 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Unsold vehicles will then be automatically entered into the weekly physical sale.
Individual dealerships will also use the e-Valuate vehicle appraisal App to accurately appraise their incoming vehicles and generate standard appraisals and imagery for use on the e-Xchange platform, whilst simultaneously generating a vehicle collection request to Aston Barclay.
Adrian Wallington, Endeavour Group’s managing director said: “We reviewed all the remarketing options open to the group and Aston Barclay impressed us with its dynamic physical and digital proposition.
“The seamless integration of physical auctions and an online platform coupled with strong relationship management were key factors in our decision.
“Chelmsford has a strong reputation within the south east and we liked the team’s can-do attitude, high levels of customer care and flexible approach to managing our group’s used car disposal needs.”
Neil Hodson, Aston Barclay’s group CEO said: “Endeavour is a great business which has grown rapidly since its launch. Our buyers will welcome the great mix of part exchange stock available on our physical and digital channels.
“This is further proof that the suite of products and services we have developed are increasingly being seen as the future of remarketing.”
