Aston Barclay Prees Heath sees 100% conversion

Aston Barclay Prees Heath, the Group’s Shropshire based vehicle remarketing centre, has launched its newly refurbished auction facilities with 100% conversion results for three of its major vendors.

The centre, which has just benefitted from a £375k refurbishment programme including new auction halls, new interfaces with the company’s online products, the creation of a buyer lounge and the addition of glazed viewing galleries from the newly refurbished board room, launched its new facilities on Wednesday February 26.

100% conversion rates were achieved for Lex Autolease, Alphabet and Helphire with a record number of buyers also in attendance, cementing Prees Heath’s position as one of the leading remarketing centres in the UK.

Prees Heath has operated for over 50 years, the last 20 of which have been within national car auction group, Aston Barclay. Throughout its life Prees Heath has built a loyal and dedicated buyer base which stretches the breadth of the UK and incudes business from all automotive sectors as well as members of the public.

Speaking about the launch, Lisa Grimsley, Aston Barclay’s Remarketing Director (North) said: "At Prees Heath we are proud to deliver results which regularly surpass those of bigger auction sites across the UK. We have a great relationship with our vendors and buyers and believe that it is this level of understanding and trust that allows us to deliver for all of our clients.

It is great that Prees Heath now looks like the industry leading auction centre which we know it to be and I hope that the new facilities for buyers and vendors will lead to continued growth for us and across Aston Barclay."

Aston Barclay Prees Heath holds sales every Wednesday and Thursday with full sale times and catalogues available on the company’s website.
