Aston Barclay signs exclusive deal with Cargiant

Time 10:20 am, January 11, 2016

ASTON Barclay plc has secured an exclusive agreement with Cargiant that will see its Chelmsford site handle all of the used car supermarket’s part-exchanges throughout 2016.

Building on an existing relationship for the past decade, the deal will see the UK’s largest independent vehicle remarketing provider supply a complete remarketing service for Cargiant.

Cargiant logoThe agreement is a first for the west London-based used car supermarket, with more than 10,000 Cargiant vehicles appearing across both the Monday evening and Wednesday sales programme during 2016.

Cargiant will utilise state-of-the-art facilities at Aston Barclay’s main auction centre, which include renovated auction halls and full inspection, repair and appraisal areas. Cargiant will also have access to cloud-based reporting through Aston Barclay’s Inventory Management System.

Trade buyers will have access to Cargiant stock via Aston Barclay’s LIVE online service as usual, allowing them to bid on physical sales in real time if they are unable to attend an auction.

Adrian Dunbar, the branch manager for Aston Barclay Chelmsford, said: ‘This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for us. We have successfully grown the reputation of Cargiant used stock in the marketplace.’

In a statement, Cargiant said: ‘Aston Barclay’s complete remarketing solution made them an obvious choice, having delivered exceptional service and performance when dealing with our vehicles over the last ten years. The facilities at their Chelmsford site are second-to-none, giving us full confidence that this new agreement will prove fruitful for Cargiant and Aston Barclay.’
