Manheim scoops LeasePlan award

Manheim has won its eleventh LeasePlan award in recognition of industry leading service levels and commercial vehicle auction performances.

In seven of the eight quarters assessed by LeasePlan, Manheim Auctions, Gloucester, came top in the supplier accreditation process.

Most significantly the auction centre team has scooped the ‘Supplier Excellence Auction Provider of The Year’ award for the last three years.

Paul Mason, general manager Auction Sales, LeasePlan, said: “LeasePlan’s auction strategy is entirely focused on driving increased buyer focus, activity and loyalty.

“At all times we strive to offer the strongest auction entry, always prepared to the best standard and always marketed to the widest buyer audience.

“Our accreditation process goes beyond this though, and despite focusing on a number of key performance indicators, it captures the essence of what class leading results and performances actually mean to our organisation.

“The results from Manheim Auctions, Gloucester speak for themselves and I would like to thank the team on behalf of LeasePlan for its continued commitment and dedication.”

James Davis, director of Commercial Vehicles, Manheim Remarketing, said: “The LeasePlan van auction accreditation framework is unique in our industry.

“It is far more comprehensive than simply benchmarking suppliers through a league table.

“League tables alone will never accurately reflect industry wide performances or the interrelation of all the complex factors that together contribute to a successful auction centre and sales programme.

“Manheim Auctions, Gloucester has been LeasePlan’s top performing van auction centre for the last three years. To consistently win these awards is not only a fantastic result for the Gloucester team, but clear proof that its disposal team and Manheim lead the UK van auction marketplace for LeasePlan.”

LeasePlan has a regular van auction programme at Manheim Auctions, Gloucester and Haydock. Manheim holds in excess of 600 commercial vehicle auctions each year through its network of seven dedicated van auction centres.
