Bristol-based Carco Group has agreed a solus remarketing deal with Aston Barclay.

The business, trading as City Motors and S J Cook and Sons operates franchises for Volvo, Renault, Dacia and Citroen. It also has a large used vehicle operation.

The family-run business will dispose of over 1,000 used cars each year through Aston Barclay’s Westbury site in Wiltshire.

Carco’s general sales manager James Webb was delighted with the launch sale and impressed with Aston Barclay’s customer service.

He said: “The first dealer sale delivered a 100% conversion rate on 60 used cars at 99.92% of CAP Clean. We were delighted with this result.”

‘’We have built our successful franchised dealer business over many decades providing excellent customer service and that is exactly what we look for from our key suppliers.

“The team at Aston Barclay Westbury share the same values and we look forward to them helping us maximise our remarketing returns.”

Richard Cross, Aston Barclay’s group sales director said: “Westbury has also served the south west motor trade for a number of decades and looks forward to a long and fruitful partnership with the Carco Group.’’
