Thurlow Nunn sign solus remarketing deal with Aston Barclay

Aston Barclay has secured an exclusive agreement with Thurlow Nunn, providing the Vauxhall dealer with remarketing services through its Chelmsford auction centre.

The group – which operates 14 sites across East Anglia, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire – has advanced its association with Aston Barclay over the last three years, growing from a small number of dealer sites to a group-wide policy and onto this latest all-auction policy for 2016.

The agreement means Thurlow Nunn will benefit further from the renovated auction halls at Aston Barclay’s main auction centre, served by Aston Barclay’s cloud-based Inventory Management System (IMS).

Trade buyers unable to attend an auction will have access to Thurlow Nunn stock via Aston Barclay’s LIVE online service, with bids on physical sales in real-time.

The deal is the second solus agreement that Aston Barclay has secured in as many months, following quickly after the announcement that another of its existing clients is opting for a complete remarketing solution at the Chelmsford site.

Martin Potter, remarketing director (South), said: “It’s great for us to quickly follow up the news of last month’s deal with another positive announcement, especially as we can put it down to great service. Both of these agreements are examples of how our clients like what we do, see results and want to put more vehicles our way.”

Martin added: “Thurlow Nunn is a well-respected name in East Anglia so we are delighted to continue the association. A ‘premium’ section will be a welcome addition to our 2016 programme.”

Simon Bottomley, Thurlow Nunn Group MD and motor division chairman added: “Relations with Aston Barclay have been excellent this past three years. We’ve gradually extended our account and we’re only too pleased to put more stock through the Chelmsford auction.”
