Cox Automotive to power Thurlow Nunn’s omnichannel strategy
Manheim Auction Services has secured a contract extension with Thurlow Nunn, one of the largest Vauxhall retailers in the UK. The agreement includes services from Cox Automotive businesses Movex and eVA.
Manheim Auction Services will exclusively remarket vehicles on behalf of Thurlow Nunn over a two-year period, building on a successful partnership that began in 2018. In addition, Cox Automotive will continue to supply Thurlow Nunn with services from its Movex specialist vehicle logistics platform.
Thurlow Nunn will also benefit from access to market-leading valuation, appraisal and car buying solutions tool eVA, as it continues to expand its omnichannel sales strategy, a process that has been accelerated by the pandemic.
The integrated service solution from Cox Automotive will drive the evolution of Thurlow Nunn’s digital retail offer, ensuring a consistent approach to in-store and online valuations across the business. Services will be used by its 11-strong network of dealerships across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire.
Sam Panayides, UK Sales Director for Cox Automotive, said: “This latest deal with Thurlow Nunn highlights the value of building strong customer relationships based on great results. Our knowledge of their business, together with a full suite of remarketing services, means we can further strengthen our collaboration.”
Simon Grylls, Sales Director at Thurlow Nunn, added: “The pandemic proved to be a major turning point for our business, acting as a catalyst behind our shift towards an omnichannel approach. Data and market insights from Cox Automotive have been invaluable throughout this process, helping to inform our strategy and enabling us to identify new opportunities for growth.”
