The Fleet Auction Group was founded in Coalville, Leicestershire in 2000 and specialises in the sale by auction of used cars, vans, HGV's, wheelchair access vehicles and commercial vehicles. FleetAuctionGroup further specialises in the resale of decommissioned fleet vehicles such as those used by the NHS or some of the UK's leading vendors and manufacturers.
Building on experience and knowledge
Since it began trading The Fleet Auction Group has received a number of national and regional industry awards, and has forged several successful business partnerships with international investors. Company Chairmen Martin S. Betts and David C. Gask bring their collective industry knowledge to bear, while CEO Andrew R. Walker is a member of several professional bodies with over 20 years experience in the motor auction industry. The Fleet Auction Group Ltd. conducts regular auctions at its purpose built site and also organises frequent special sales off site. Past and present clients include Honda, Argos, Hertz, Leicestershire Constabulary and Siemens.
Benefitting both buyer and seller
Buyers and sellers both benefit from a fully computerised inventory control which shows all vehicles currently on site and for sale by The Fleet Auction Group. The company's website gives information on how technology is implemented to catalogue and present vehicles and all data can be accessed through the website's 'client portal'. Sales take place throughout each week and upcoming events are clearly listed on the web page. As well as being listed in chronological order, sales are further categorised into specific types such as cars, fleet or commercial vehicles.
A proxy bid system is in place for people who want to bid remotely. Internet bidding is also available and continues to be developed, while a recent special sale in partnership with SEAT UK introduced i-Pad bidding. Registration is simple and after filling out the appropriate form on The Fleet Auction Group Limited page both sellers and buyers have access to updates, alerts and company news. FleetAuctionGroup can also organise pick up and delivery of any size throughout the UK.
