Independent motor auctions connect to 1link Disposal Network

A new interface between the 1link Disposal Network e-commerce platform is being used by several major fleets to manage car and van disposal online, and Kingfisher Systems’ Auction Manager software, adopted by many motor auctions to manage their activities.

Effectively, fleet managers using 1link Disposal Network now have the option to use either the platform’s online sales and auctions to sell to dealers, or send them to four independent motor auctions - Aston Barclay, Fleet Auction Group, Scottish Motor Auctions and Wilsons.

As well as being able to dispose of cars and vans online with the results of the auctions being made available in real time, the new tool will also allow fleet managers to arrange movement, inspection and preparation of defleeted vehicles from their PC.

Ken Trinder, head of business development at epyx, explained: “These well-known, independent auctions are already popular disposal routes for many major fleets using 1link Disposal Network and this new development will make using them much easier.

“It has always been our view that 1link Disposal Network’s established online auctions and sales of vehicles to dealers should form part of a mix of disposal methods used by fleets.

“The new interface develops that ethos, meaning fleets now have the ability to easily send different vehicles through different routes using 1link Disposal Network at the click of a mouse, while also arranging essential disposal services such as vehicle preparation, movement and inspection.”
