Lockdown 3 Update Message from the CEO

6th January 2021

Dear Customer,

As lockdown three commences we are delighted to advise that even though our centres are closed for physical attendance we continue to work behind the scenes preparing vehicles for our expanding list of corporate vendor partners at both Rockingham and Belfast to continue the supply digitally online to our valued account clients.

Virtual auction events will continue for both car and LCV at Rockingham with the next specialist corporate event on Tuesday 12th January 2021 at 9.30am featuring a wide variety of 500 vehicles and furthermore an exciting addition as previously noted the inaugural Toyota & Lexus GB Remarketing sale event featuring 300 vehicles will jump into the digital sale space on Thursday 21st January 2021 at 10.30am. 

The Rockingham compound services team continue as always protecting our clients vehicles securely seven days a week supported by PurpleRock Technical Services upgrading vehicles to retail standard.

The recent introduction of our new auction management platform and inspection app has further increased the confidence to purchase digitally online with market leading defined imagery and NAMA graded reports and mechanical health checks enabling our buyers to purchase comfortably from their smartphone, tablet or desktop.

For Northern Ireland the landscape is slightly different as the regional government has advised click and collect is not currently an option therefore we continue with vehicle collections and preparation services in the usual manner with the auction events on hold until further notice.

PurpleRock Logistics continue to move vehicles safely across the group to ensure we provide our valued partners a world class service during the current restrictions.

To close please remain safe and remember if you require any further information please contact the team, we are here to assist throughout this period and remember your business is our business during this unprecedented time.

Best Regards 
Michael Tomalin
CEO City Aution Group
