The solus auction deal will see Prees Heath dispose of Chapelhouse’s part exchanges until 2020.

Chapelhouse represents Kia, Suzuki, Fiat and Citroen from sites in Southport, St Helens, Warrington, Wigan and Preston and has been a family run business for over 40 years.

Around 6,000-part exchanges will be disposed of during that time, typically ranging in value from £200 to £10,000 via a prime slot, during its weekly Thursday evening dealer sale.

Chapelhouse will benefit from a new vehicle imaging turntable and Spin Car technology, as part of investment from Aston Barclay to its onsite used car facilities.

Chapelhouse’s group operations director Chris Layton said: “We have been working with Prees as auction partners for a number of years and we felt it was important to enter into a long-term agreement.

"Having all part exchanges going through a single site makes it simple to manage, and we receive weekly reporting on our used car sales activity. The relationships are very strong between the Chapelhouse and Prees Heath teams,”

Aston Barclay Prees Heath’s general manager Ismael Aumeerally said: “Chapelhouse has built up a regular following at our weekly sale with a good range of makes, models, mileages and age of stock on offer.

"Our team work hard each week to maximise the demand and prices for its part exchange stock.”
