City Auction Group has just signed a new partnership with IT Fleet Automotive to provide a range of defleet services to existing and potential new customers at the Group’s Rockingham facility.

IT Fleet Automotive has successfully partnered with City Auction Group in Belfast over the past 12 months and is now taking 8-10 acres at Rockingham to service major corporates, such as LeasePlan, Alphabet, Arval and Motability.

It will be storing vehicles at Rockingham, as well as offering its full suite of defleet services.

City Auction Group’s managing director Michael Tomalin said: “We are very excited about this new partnership for Rockingham, as it will enable us to offer our mutual vendors a complete range of defleet services including collection, vehicle inspection, refurbishment and resale.

"Now, we will be able to take ex-contract hire vehicles that are grade 3 and 4 to grade 1 and 2, delivering vendors a better ROI.”

IT Fleet Automotive’s managing director Andrew Timmis said: “Rockingham is an excellent strategic base for us, complementing our other eight locations in the Midlands, the North of England and the South East.

"We are looking forward to extending our partnership with City Auction Group and to supporting more corporate customers with our combined, complementary defleet services.”

The next corporate fleet event at Rockingham takes place on March 26 at 10am featuring 300 vehicles from PSA Finance, Ogilvie Fleet, TCH Leasing, Semalease, Liquid Fleet, MultiFleet, FCA, Dawson Group, Honda Financial Services, Avis Budget Group, Northridge, RCI Financial Services, Easy Loans and United Rental Group.
