Buy it Now bargains on rebranded CD Auction Group
YOU do have something of a problem appealing to van buyers when you are called Cars Direct.
So the Corby in Northamptonshire based auction house has rebranded to CD Auction Group as it starts to put an increasing volume of de-fleeted vans through its online auctions. Although the site is primarily for professional buyers, CD Auction Group does encourage private buyers – such as tradesmen – to buy online, primarily through its ‘Buy it Now’ programme.
“You can save between £1500 to £2000 on dealer forecourt prices,” confirmed the company’s managing director, Roger Woodward.
“Although we currently only sell about 3000 commercial vehicles a year, we are looking to boost that volume over the next 12 months,” confirmed Mr Woodward.
One of the company’s strengths is the detailed description of the vans, including all marks and scuffs, as well as high quality pictures. The company has installed a dedicated photographic studio with specialist lighting. So you know precisely what you are getting.
All the vans going through the auction house are direct from fleet and leasing companies – hence the original Cars Direct name – and typically include customers such as BT Fleet and Royal Mail.
The rebranded CD Auction Group started trading 21 years ago as Cars Direct from a base in Finedon, Northamptonshire where it developed selling online in 2001. It moved to its present Corby HQ in 2002.
