Listers renews deal with Manheim as solus remarketing provider
Listers, one of the largest privately- and family-owned automotive groups in the UK, has extended its agreement with Manheim as its solus remarketing provider, in a two-year deal that will see around 20,000 vehicles sold through its Birmingham and Mansfield auction centres.
The renewed deal covers part-exchange stock from Listers’ 45 dealerships across the UK. As well as remarketing vehicles through Manheim’s auctions, Listers Group was also one of the first dealer groups to use its Seller Advance product, which appraises part-exchange vehicles with 97% accuracy. A key benefit is the management and validation of appraisals for vehicles being traded in, to provide greater reassurance to dealer customers.
Tim Bradshaw, Listers’ group operations director, said: “We continue to be impressed by Manheim’s performance with respect to our consolidated remarketing strategy. We have full confidence in the business and will continue to entrust it with our part-exchange disposals for the next two years. The capability, expertise and flexibility it delivers ensure that we achieve our remarketing objectives.”
Manheim delivers a truly joined-up service, from offering accurate part-exchange valuations, which improve confidence for dealers and customers; to excellent performance with respect to conversion rates and values achieved.
Tim Hudson, managing director for remarketing at Manheim, said: “The renewal of our solus deal with Listers is testament to our sustained commitment to deliver value and service excellence to all of our customers. We’re delighted to be extending our exclusive five-year relationship with Listers, and look forward to continuing our work with the business to meet its remarketing objectives.”
