Aston Barclay: 'Covid has helped our industry move to where it needed to be'

In just four years, Aston Barclay has transformed from a modest family-run auction business with four sites to become a major player in the fleet and leasing remarketing sector.

Relentless investment in technology, spurred by a desire to provide buyers with greater clarity and visibility of its stock, has evolved the businesses into one which is at the forefront of digital remarketing.

It now operates from six locations, has contracts with multiple FN50 leasing companies and operates its own digital remarketing platform. 

The coronavirus pandemic served as the perfect test-bed for Aston Barclay’s remote-buying services and within weeks of the country going into lockdown, the firm had already returned to trading using its live online bidding platform.
