Auction4Cars was launched in October 2008 by car supermarket Motorpoint.
The concept was simple; a trade only website offering Motorpoint’s part-exchange vehicles with no auction fee to independent traders throughout the UK. Initially launched from Derby with a five-strong team, within a month Auction4Cars was selling over 100 cars per week. With the rapid success of Derby, Auction4Cars was rolled out to Peterborough at the end of 2008, Newport in spring 2009 and most recently Burnley in spring 2009. Collectively, Auction4Cars now employs over 20 people, selling to small independent garages, major dealer networks and car supermarkets.
Before vehicles are offered for online auction, vehicles are fully inspected with an exhaustive report and at least eight images. Vehicles are presented in the best possible condition, as buyers demand. Auction 4 Cars was launched in October 2008 by the UK’s leading car supermarket Motorpoint, offering Motorpoint part exchange vehicles to the Trade. Our Trade Only website was an instant success and now sells over 30,000 part exchanges every year!
Initially launched in Derby, it wasn’t long before we opened more Auction 4 Cars sites and we now operate in Derby, Burnley, Newport, Alconbury, Birmingham, Birtley and Castleford where part exchanges from Motorpoint’s 12 sites are distributed. May we point out a couple of little known facts about ourselves. MOTORPOINT PLC, our parent company, only sell cars UP TO 2 YEARS OLD having covered LESS THAN 15000 MILES.
So any vehicle outside of those parameters comes to Auction 4 Cars for trade sale. Another fact is that Motorpoint are the 100% sole supplier of all our cars and vans offering diverse stock at genuine trade prices. Before vehicles are offered for online auction our trade team appraise, photograph and HPI every part exchange to ensure the vehicle description is as accurate as possible so that our trade partners can bid and buy with confidence. Vehicles are presented in trade condition with a true representation to the best of our knowledge.
As a result we have developed long term trade relationships and we look forward to welcoming new motor trade partners in the future. We pride ourselves on offering exceptional customer service to our trade customers. Auction 4 Cars offers a diverse range of stock ensuring that there is something for everyone. Independent garages, dealer networks and car supermarkets alike can all benefit from the stock available. Auction 4 Cars is going from strength to strength as the UK’s leading independent trade only website. We are constantly striving to deliver innovation through our website and continual improvement to offer the best possible service to our customers. Whether you are new to Auction 4 Cars or an existing customer, we hope you find the website easy to use and that it quickly becomes your first choice for quality used car stock.
