Fleet news logo

Aston Barclay has completed the purchase of the former four and a half acre site previously occupied by Motor Auctions Leeds in a multi-million pound deal.

Strategically placed, the acquisition of the Hillidge Road site, south of Leeds and close to the M621, aims to further strengthen Aston Barclay’s position in the market place and will complement its centres in Chelmsford, Essex, Westbury in Wiltshire and Prees Heath, Shropshire.

Initially, Aston Barclay will stage two sales a week, disposing of up to 300 cars and LCVs.

Tim Hudson, Aston Barclay’s managing director, said: “The acquisition of the Hillidge Road site in Leeds is strategically important to Aston Barclay Group as it completes our national footprint. We have commissioned an extensive refurbishment programme that will enable us to open for business in early April.”
