Manheim signs 12-month deal with Baylis Vauxhall
MANHEIM SIGNS 12-MONTH DEAL WITH BAYLIS
- Manheim forms 12-month partnership with car dealer Baylis
- Weekly auction programme launched at Manheim Bristol on 21 January
- Baylis will also utilise Manheim’s Valuations and Appraisal tool (eVA) as part of its part-exchange process.
Manheim Auction Service has announced a 12-month contract with independently managed car dealer group, Baylis.
Baylis, based in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, and Worcestershire, will hold its weekly auction programme at Manheim’s centre in Bristol. It is expected that approximately 1,500 Baylis vehicles will pass through Manheim’s auction lanes over the next 12 months.
The car dealer group will also be utilising Manheim’s valuations and appraisals tool, eVA, as part of its part-exchange process. This will allow the business to generate an accurate valuation for part-exchange vehicles and sell any unwanted part-exchange vehicles directly to Manheim.
Manheim started its new weekly auction programme in partnership with Baylis on 21 January 2021, with the auctions delivered through its virtual auction system Simulcast due to the current Covid-19 restrictions.
Liam Quegan, Managing Director of Manheim Auction Services, said: “We are pleased to welcome Baylis to Manheim’s regular auction programme. They are one of the largest independently managed Vauxhall groups in the UK, respected within the geographical area they operate and a great addition to Manheim Bristol.
“Baylis has also chosen to utilise eVA in their part-exchange process, providing their customers with the most accurate and real time vehicle valuations in the UK. This shows the growing need of our clients to provide services across the life-cycle of a car and I look forward to working with Baylis over the next 12 months.”
Adrian Ford, Group Sales Operations Manager at Baylis added: “We take the needs of our customers seriously and aim to deliver the most competitive prices with the best service. We are looking forward to working with Manheim, an organisation who also delivers for its customers – and were impressed by their capability to provide end-to-end remarketing solutions for their dealers.
“We’re excited to be taking advantage of their leading valuations and appraisals tool, as well as joining their already successful auction programme at Manheim Bristol.”
