100% conversion for three major vendors
Belfast City Auctions placed the hammer down on 275 fleet vehicles for the first time ever with Ford Retail, Santander and Semalease all achieving 100% conversion. The sale commenced at 9.30am with a packed auction hall and over 50 registered online buyers throughout the event.
CEO Raymond Hill stated 'the sale was electric. I literally didn't miss a car in the first hour and the crowd was phenomenal with online becoming a very strong sales platform with numerous occasions that more than three bidders competed online for the same vehicle. We can't thank our corporate vendors and loyal buyers enough for their support'.
Tony Hare MD Semalease commented 'the late plate Hyundai product on offer today was perfect for the Irish market. We moved 40 vehicles from the UK the majority being diesels and achieved excellent financial returns. We will be back in two weeks for the next event!'.
David Cole National Group Disposals Ford Retail also stated '100% conversion, undercover canopy well on the way to completion and a great crowd. I'm delighted for Belfast City Auctions they work tirelessly for the business and commit many hours outside the traditional 9 to 5 to make sure this works from top tier management to the yard manager. A resounding success'.
Next event takes place on Thursday 10th October 2013 at 9.30am.
