SALE: Manheim and Lex Autolease team up
Lex Autolease are offering more than 1,000 ex-fleet, finance and commercial vehicles in a megasale at Manheim Colchester next weekend.
One of Europe’s biggest single vendor auctions, the annual Lex Autolease Megasale begins at 10.30am on Saturday, October 19.
The listing features small to large cars, premium and luxury models, hybrids, ex-MoD fleet, motorcycles, taxis, motorhomes, caravans and LCVs.
For those who cannot attend the open sale in person, all vehicles will also be available through Manheim’s online bidding platform, Simulcast.
Glenn Sturley, Vehicle Remarketing Director at Lex Autolease, said: “Our previous Megasales have proven incredibly successful, with more than 1,000 buyers registering across both the auction hall and online environment for each event.
“The combination of a diverse range of high quality vehicles, the unique four lane set up, our move to a weekend format and discounts on Manheim’s delivery services are sure to make this year’s event the best yet.”
Mark Taylor, General Manager at Manheim Colchester, added: “More than £7.2million-worth of stock went under the hammer at last year’s Lex Autolease Megasale and we’re hoping to break that record at this year’s event.
“In addition, last year saw bidders who travelled or logged in from Tyneside, Glasgow, West Yorkshire, Ireland, Turkey, Malta and even New Zealand.
“We’re expecting to see an even greater global interest in the extensive range of vehicles on offer on Saturday, October 19.
“From Porsche Boxters to Triumph Tigers, Toyota Prius hybrids to Peugeot motorhomes, ex-MoD Vauxhalls and a fleet of ex-London Taxis, there will something for everyone and to suit all budgets when we open the bidding.
“We’re working closely with the Lex Autolease team to ensure we provide buyers, in person and online, with the highest quality service and the ultimate auction experience.”
