Vantage Renews Aston Barclay Solus Remarketing Contract
Posted 7 August 2020
Vantage Motor Group has announced a new long-term solus remarketing contract renewal with Aston Barclay.
Vantage will continue to channel all group part exchanges from its 14 locations through Aston Barclay Wakefield’s two weekly dealer part-exchange sales and fleet sale.
Vantage has been a lead vendor at Wakefield since it opened in January 2019 and even before the Covid-19 lockdown when Aston Barclay switched to an online auction strategy, Vantage was a strong advocate of selling cars via digital channels.
This includes selling used cars upstream via the Aston Barclay e-Xchange wholesale platform prior to them reaching auction. This combination of dynamic digital technology and a creative approach to selling used cars throughout the year was a key reason for the contract extension decision.
“Vantage signed up as lead vendor at Wakefield even before it opened as the group bought into our ideal of revolutionising the industry. We have worked together very closely since to build a strong following for its cars at auction and they have been receptive to using new technology such as e-Xchange. We are pleased to see them commit to a new long-term remarketing contract,” said Martin Potter, Aston Barclay’s MD, Auctions.
Vantage represents Toyota, Lexus, Kia, Skoda and Citroen brands across Yorkshire and Lancashire.
