3 October 2017

Aston Barclay’s Donington Park site has landed a solus disposal contract with Robins and Day.


James Weston, chief executive of Robins and Day, commented on the deal: “Aston Barlcay is changing the face of remarketing by successfully combining online and physical.  It’s a powerful combination which we liked the look of during our 12-month trial.  By giving buyers the opportunity to buy digitally, physically or via an App we are catering for their preferred purchase method, which should help us sell more used cars.”


Rob Wittridge, Aston Barclay’s group national sales manager, added: Donington Park will give us a strong geographical location from which to base our UK remarketing hub.  Rutland’s investment in Aston Barclay has built Donington into a first class auction environment.  Our new proposition has been warmly welcomed by vendors and buyers alike.”
