Volkswagen Financial Services signs Aston Barclay mega auction deal

Aston Barclay Donington Park Mega Centre

Volkswagen Financial Services UK (VWFS) has announced plans to take over Aston Barclay’s Donington Park Mega Centre for a series of ‘Centre-For-A-Day’ Mega Sales until the end of the year.

The entire 12-acre site will play host to a dedicated monthly auction until the end of 2018 starting from October 26.

VWFS says that 300 used cars from across the VW group will be entered into each sale, representing Volkswagen, Audi and selected Seat and Skoda products. Stock is typically between two and three years of age, with an average of 30,000 miles on the clock.

VWFS sales feature a range of product types, from voluntary terminations to ex-contract hire and business use vehicles which may have had multiple users.

Martin Woollam, VWFS general manager of remarketing, said: “Donington Park is the perfect location to host three superb sales due to its leading performance, exceptional location and great levels of care that the Aston Barclay team show to both vendors and buyers.”

Neil Hodson, Aston Barclay’s CEO, added: “We’re delighted to welcome VWFS to our Donington Park sales programme and the team are excited at the excellent cross section of stock that VWFS will offer during their sales.

“We are seeing increasing numbers of vendors embracing our revolution of the auction market and recognising the value that our investment in leading technology, our infrastructure and our people generates for both them and our growing buyer base.”

VWFS will hold three ‘Centre-For-A-Day’ sales on: October 26; November 23; and December 14.
