Aston Barclay plc has appointed automotive data experts cap hpi to exclusively handle its vehicle data requirement.
As result of the new partnership, cap hpi will provide a comprehensive range of vehicle data ensuring accuracy and peace of mind for used car buyers wishing to make a purchase.
Aston Barclay is one of the UK’s leading auction and remarketing suppliers operating from strategically located auction centres in Chelmsford, Prees Heath in Shropshire and Westbury in Wiltshire, an LCV centre in Leeds together with super centres at Donington Park and its latest at Wakefield, a new 78,000 sqft super centre which opened in January this year. The new site hosts 15 dealer and fleet auctions per month and has the capacity to sell 50,000 used vehicles annually, contributing to Aston Barclay’s plan of doubling its group sales volume to 160,000 vehicles by 2022.
Built on an 18-acre site close to the M1, M62 and A1, the new super centre features two glass-fronted auction halls, interactive screens and artificial intelligence.
cap hpi will be providing data powering all of Aston Barclay’s auction sites and super centres.
Late last year Aston Barclay acquired The Car Buying Group, one of the largest independent consumer car buying companies in the UK. Selling over 10,000 cars nationwide on behalf of car owners and interacting with tens of thousands more, The Car Buying Group was at the forefront of the online consumer car buying revolution since 2014.
Neil Hodson, CEO of Aston Barclay said: “We chose to partner with cap hpi because of a shared commitment to innovation and their comprehensive data coverage and accuracy. Our business model recognises the need to combine a range of digital remarketing services in addition to physical auction, providing a flexible, personal approach. It requires ongoing investment in our personnel, facilities, IT infrastructure and services to provide our customers with the necessary product range and routes to market.
“As such data accuracy remains of paramount importance to us as a business and is the foundation of the service we provide to our customers across the UK. Working with cap hpi we are gaining access to accurate, more comprehensive vehicle data than we’ve ever had access to before allowing us to provide consistent data to customers who want to be safe in the knowledge that the information they are basing their purchases on is accurate, complete and totally reliable.”
Commented Sadia Azam, strategic account manager at cap hpi: “Our relationship with Aston Barclay continues to evolve and we have a true partnership with the senior management team. At a such a key period of growth and expansion for Aston Barclay, the decision to appoint cap hpi is a reflection of our collaborative approach and ongoing demonstration of adding value for our customers.”
