Aston Barclay has secured an exclusive agreement with Cargiant, which will see its Chelmsford site handle all of Cargiant’s part exchanges throughout 2016.

The solus contract builds on a 10-year relationship and  is a first for the west London-based used car supermarket, with more than 10,000 Cargiant vehicles appearing across both the Monday evening and Wednesday sales programme during 2016.

Cargiant will use Aston Barclay’s main auction centre, which includes renovated auction halls and full inspection, repair and appraisal areas.

It will also have access to cloud-based reporting through Aston Barclay’s Inventory Management System (IMS).

Trade buyers will have access to Cargiant stock via Aston Barclay’s Live online service as usual, allowing them to bid on physical sales in real-time if they are unable to attend an auction.

Adrian Dunbar, branch manager at Aston Barclay Chelmsford, said: “This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for us; we have successfully grown the reputation of Cargiant used stock in the marketplace.”

A spokesman for Cargiant said: “Aston Barclay’s complete remarketing solution made it an obvious choice, having delivered exceptional service and performance when dealing with our vehicles over the last 10 years. The facilities at its Chelmsford site are second-to-none, giving us full confidence that this new agreement will prove fruitful for Cargiant and Aston Barclay.”
