CD Auction Group awarded remarketing contract for Essential

We are delighted to announce that CD Auction Group has been awarded a contract to be a key remarketing partner for Essential Fleet Services.

As specialists in contract hire, fleet management, rental solutions and outsourced maintenance to local authorities and a range of corporate organisations primarily in the utilities, highways, rail and waste industries, the Essential team are constantly looking for ways to improve the service provided to our customers, and remarketing is no different.

Sales volumes at the online auction have doubled in the last 24 months and growth in LCV sales has been particularly strong; LCVs accounted for around 45% of the vehicles remarketed by CD Auction Group in 2016.

Paul Shelton, Head of Remarketing at Essential, said: “As part of our core service provision of specialist vehicle funding, maintenance and rental solutions, we offer our customers ‘stress-free’ fleet management and a dedicated remarketing team to maximise value when vehicles are coming off contract.

“Having reviewed the market it was clear that CD Auction Group are in a fantastic position to deliver a high quality service to our business and our customers, supporting the continuing growth ambitions of Essential Fleet Services. They offer a personal service with considerable experience of selling specialist vehicles and they have grown a strong buyer base for our LCVs.”

Andy Brown, managing director of CD Auction Group, said: “Essential Fleet Services joins a growing band of fleet industry vendors who recognise that genuine online auctions are the most efficient and cost effective way to manage their vehicle remarketing.

“Despite our recent growth, we remain totally focussed on the customer. We are a small team; able to offer a very personal, but hi-tech solution to vehicle remarketing, in-life vehicle management and logistics. Our online systems, we believe, are the best in the business and the future for our industry.”

The Essential team look forward to updating you on additional developments throughout 2017 as our business delivers further enhancements to our offering, confirming our position as the leading provider of Specialist vehicles in the UK
