The UK’s largest commercial auctions house network, John Pye Auctions, is set to expand its recently opened Chesterfield hub to launch weekly vehicle auctions later this month.
The 233,000 sq ft site which opened in March is the second largest in the auctioneer’s network, running weekly actions for thousands of retail and technology items.
Lee Mabbutt, Head of Vehicles at John Pye Auctions, said: “We are thrilled to be expanding our Chesterfield operation – there is a clear gap in the local market for the efficient disposal of vehicles and our team are prepared to offer bespoke solutions, giving vendors access to the John Pye client database of more than 400,000 registered bidders.
“Our established sales programme across the UK will benefit from Chesterfield’s expansion. Stock will be offered alongside our weekly auctions held at Marchington, Staffs and South Wales. Consigning vehicles is easy: we accept cars, LCVs, motorcycles, motorhomes, caravans and anything else in between.”
John Pye comprises of six trading departments; John Pye Vehicles, John Pye Retail, John Pye Luxury, John Pye Property, John Pye Business Assets and John Pye Technical.
The vehicles department currently sells 30,000 vehicles per year on behalf of Government Authorities, Lenders, large fleet operators and vehicle retailers.
Its latest expansion at Chesterfield will provide a new route to market for local used vehicle retailers, established traders and private individuals.
