Fleet Auction Group (FLAG) has opened a new £400,000, vehicle appraisal bay at its Leicestershire headquarters.
The six-lane centre is located immediately behind site security, making it the first stop once vehicle has arrived on site. With FLAG’s number plate recognition system also positioned at the entrance security point, arriving vehicles are instantly logged on to the tracking system.
Assessors using hand held PDAs appraise and image vehicles as soon as they are on site, with the data available within minutes of arriving and providing real-time vehicle monitoring.
“We also offer costed appraisals,” said operations director Kevin Clarke, “which many vendors use to give them more details when charging customers for excessive damage, and to provide more accurate valuations of their vehicles.”
