Cox Automotive, January 2021 UK operational update
As we start the New Year, we’d like to update you on our operational plans for January and beyond.
For the foreseeable future, we will continue to operate as per the ‘new normal’ established during the second half of 2020.
All of our businesses – Manheim Auction Services, Manheim Inspection Services, Manheim Vehicle Services, Movex, Dealer Auction, NextGear Capital, Modix and eVA Valuations & Appraisals – have well-established COVID-secure working conditions and procedures in place, and all team members who are able to are working from home.
We are continuing to limit customer activities on our sites in line with government guidance and local restrictions. The safety and wellbeing of our people and customers remain our priority.
This means Manheim Auction Services’ physical auction programme will continue to be delivered via Simulcast. Where local guidance allows it, vendors and buyers will be able to view stock by appointment - please contact the relevant auction centre for more information. We will also continue to support auction buyers through our Accelerate programme.
We continue to review these decisions on a regular basis but with national and local restrictions remaining high on the government’s agenda, we do not anticipate any deviation from this in the immediate future.
If you have any specific comments or questions, please discuss with your usual point of contact.
Thank you for your continued custom and support. Please carry on taking care of yourselves and one another, and let’s all keep doing the right thing and play our respective parts in overcoming COVID-19 as swiftly as possible.
