Aston Barclay Prees Heath

Aston Barclay Prees Heath has broken a 20-year-old company record by selling 290 units in one day – a feat that hasn’t been achieved since 1998.

It’s Wednesday fleet sale, the inaugural sale for Santander, saw PSA stock achieve a 100% conversion rate with used fleet prices averaging between 98-100% of CAP.

Throughout the day, a total of 27% of bids were submitted via the group’s online platforms with 11% of bidders accessing the sales online on desktop and mobile via the buyer’s app.

In total 39% of the newly offered Santander vehicles were sold to remote bidders.       

Aston Barclay’s  group operations director Martin Potter said: “We have been working with the local council to look at ways of developing the Prees Heath site over the coming year to cater for this increased demand and we are confident the expanded site will bring great benefits to the local community with new jobs and investment.”
