Remarketing companies are a vital component during the asset financing process, ensuring that million of leasing deals earn their maximum residual value from a vehicle toward the end of a contract.
The sector is seen as a perfect platform for digital innovation, but for executives at fast-expanding UK vehicle remarketing company Aston Barclay, the focus is on balancing change with tradition in delivering their vision for the future of the industry.
Alongside extensive investment in smartphone apps, sophisticated digital services and websites, it is creating a growing nationwide network of physical auction centres around the country.
The real-world implementation of this blend of physical and digital services is on show at its latest site, a new multi-million-pound remarketing centre in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, where up to 50,000 used vehicles will be sold annually.
Combining physical and digital remarketing services
The design of the so-called “supercentre” reflects Aston Barclays ambitions to redefine perceptions of the remarketing sector, with its two glass-fronted auction halls offering a range of interactive screens as a direct link between the physical and digital worlds.
There is also a state-of-the-art vehicle inspection building complete with imaging bay and turntable to capture a full picture of each car’s condition both inside and out, so remote bidders can get a detailed view of a vehicle they are bidding on.
