Nearly 1,400 vans in April and May were offered at Manheim’s new
dedicated commercial vehicle auction centre in Haydock.

The auction house said that since it announced at the end of
March that its Haydock-based business would move to specialist CV
status, the number of light commercial vehicles being sold has
significantly increased.

For the April-May period alone, CV sales reached £4.65 million,
with sales done on behalf of finance companies that included
Lombard Finance, Lombard Vehicle Management, Toyota Financial
Services and Arval.

Alex Wright, Manheim Auctions’ CV sales director said: “An
excellent first couple of months trading at Haydock suggests that
the decision to move to commercial vehicle specialist status has
already started to pay dividends.”

“Clearly there is strong demand in the North West for a
specialist commercial vehicle auction centre and, in order to keep
the early momentum going, discussions are currently taking place
with a number of other vendors who are interested in adding Haydock
to their auction programmes,” he added.

Manheim said that Haydock’s largest van vendor is Lombard, which
has been using the site monthly since 2006.
