Fleet Leasing

Close Brothers sells used vehicles via LinkedIn

Close Brothers Asset Finance is now selling its direct assets, including ex-lease vehicles, trucks, vans, cars, construction equipment and machinery, via a tailored LinkedIn page aimed at SMEs and other prospective buyers.

The page has been launched in response to an increased demand for second-hand assets due to the cost pressures facing SMEs.

A different item will be advertised on the Close Brothers Asset Finance website’s ‘assets for sale’ page every weekday, with full specification details. 

Every time a vehicle or piece of equipment is posted for sale, followers will receive an alert.  In addition, if individuals are looking for something specific, Close Brothers will use its national network of contacts to help identify a suitable asset.

Mike Randall, CEO of Close Brothers Asset Finance, said: “LinkedIn is a popular communications tool for the majority of businesses, so it seemed only natural to use it to widen our communication about the wide-range of assets we have available for sale at the end of their leases.

" A lot of small businesses and individuals are looking for quality, used equipment for their businesses and this is the ideal place to start. And to help further, we offer flexible financing packages to fund all of our assets for sale.”
