The complete operational aspects of the business are now situated within the City Auction Group Arena, inside the race circuit to further enhance the inspection, tactical refurbishment and presentation standards, prior to corporate sellers’ preferred remarketing route to market. This will deliver significant time and cost savings, as the auction firm moves up a gear, it said.

A total of 350 cars and 100 LCVs will be available at the sale event. 

City Auction Group predicts its annual volume capacity in 2019 will be 100,000 passenger cars and 50,000 LCVs. 

Michael Tomalin, managing director of City Auction Group, said: “We have been extremely busy over the last three months redeveloping our auction facility at Rockingham, as well as expanding our defleet and vehicle remarketing capacity. 

“Our complete portfolio of defleet and remarketing services is now firmly in position and we can now look forward to developing a professional infrastructure to include inspection and collection services, vehicle storage (availability from 5-150 acres), vehicle refinishing processes and tactical refurbishment, supported by a choice of vehicle remarketing solutions.
