Aston Barclay announces post-Christmas auction programme

Aston Barclay used car auction

Aston Barclay is once again running its annual Christmas auctions during the busy festive period, including a dedicated online Zenith fleet sale.

More than 1,000 used cars will be offered over the festive period through the dedicated Zenith online sale on December 30, comprising direct NAMA 1-3 grade fleet units and Aston Barclay’s e-Xchange bid and buy online auction platform.

Aston Barclay Chelmsford is also running its first sale of the year on January 3 to cater for the expected strong wholesale demand post-Christmas which will have more than 400 cars available from vendors such as The Car Buying Group, Car Giant, Gates, John Banks and Sascron.

“We have run auctions between Christmas and New Year for a number of years to support dealer buyers and fleet vendors who want to replace sold stock, or who are looking for a specific car for a customer during the holidays,” explained Martin Potter, Aston Barclay’s MD for customer.

“We have a good range of stock that covers a wide range of price bands so there are used cars available for both franchised and independent dealers.”

In 2020, Aston Barclay reported its best Christmas sales period for eight years selling £1.5 million of used cars and 2021 could see this record beaten as drivers continue to turn to used cars as new car supplies remain compromised.

Aston Barclay’s e-Xchange platform is available free to Aston Barclay account holders offering vehicles online from a variety of dealer, fleet, and OEM vendors all in one place.
