Fastest growing auction group to open specialist remarketing centre in Northamptonshire
City Auction Group, Ireland’s fastest growing automotive auction group, will be opening a specialist remarketing centre at Rockingham Speedway this month (January 2015).
The new super centre will hold corporate auction events on behalf of major contract hire and leasing companies, financial institutions, daily rental companies and motor manufacturers.
The news comes on the tail of City Auction Group’s rapid growth over the last five years, having opened three centres at Dublin, Belfast and Omagh – radically changing the face of remarketing in Ireland.
Michael Tomalin, Managing Director of City Auction Group comments: “In just a short time, we have established City Auction Group as the largest auction firm in Ireland […] We are very excited about the launch of our new super centre at Rockingham Speedway. It represents our first foothold on the mainland and will provide us with a spring board to launch further expansion across the UK over the coming years.”
City Auction Group will be holding its inaugural auction event at Rockingham on 5th February 2015 at 10.00am and will be offering over 500 corporate vehicles from 25 corporate vendors featuring dedicated sections from Lex Autolease, Semalease, Peugeot & Citroen Financial Services, Avis and Budget and many more. The physical auction will be supported by an IOS/Android live bid and auction app for smart phones and tablet devices. A dedicated soft seated live bid lounge is being introduced as another new initiative for the group.
