John Grose agrees to two-year remarketing deal with Manheim
East Anglia's premier Ford, Kia, Citroën & Peugeot dealer, John Grose has agreed a new, two-year deal with global vehicle remarketing provider, Manheim. The multi-site franchise dealer group will dispose of around 1,000 cars and vans per year through Manheim’s Colchester auction centre, operating five days per week.
The agreement is a departure from its normal policy of twelve-month contracts, with John Grose signing a two-year deal, which also includes the dealer’s commercial vehicle (CV) units and specialist Transit centre based in Ipswich. The partnership has been renewed following 14 years of successful collaboration between the two businesses.
David Billison, Sales Director at John Grose, commented: “After working with Manheim for more than a decade, the company has become one of our most trusted partners, so when it came to renewing our agreement, it was an obvious decision.
“Manheim shares the same values that we do as an organisation, notably around delivering both customer and employee satisfaction, and going the extra mile to make sure expectations are always met. We are looking forward to another two years of this shared ethos.”
Liam Quegan, managing director of Manheim Auction Services & NextGear Capital, added: “The fact that John Grose was happy to agree to a two-year agreement with Manheim is testament to the strength of the relationship we have both built throughout the past 14 years. “Manheim’s commitment to delivering forward-thinking and adaptive vehicle remarketing solutions is as important today as it was back in 2007.”
Born out of the Grose family who were involved in the motor trade back in 1888, John Grose has become one the most respected and established dealer groups within East Anglia. Today, the business operates multiple sites across the Suffolk and South Norfolk region, including a dedicated accident repair centre and a specialist tyre and service centre. John Grose operates four Ford showrooms as well as DS, Citroen, Kia & Peugeot showrooms.
