Shoreham increases conversion rate at second ‘Van’Tastic sale

Event sees packed halls for major south coast vehicle auction:

  • 150 vans entered with an 83% conversion rate
  • Next ‘Van’ Tastic’ sales with 150+ vehicles to be held on 15th and 29th March 2011
  • Additional van sale on 1st March 2011

On Tuesday, 15 February 2011, Shoreham Vehicle Auctions held its second ‘Van’ Tastic sale at its headquarters on the south coast with a record breaking 83% of the 150 vans entered being sold. A number of the vans sold were sourced from The RSPCA, ING Car Lease (UK) Ltd and Balfour Beatty.

Buyer turnout was strong and the majority of the vans sold achieved a price well over 100% of the CAP average – the best being six Citroen Berlingo Enterprise vans, with an average mileage of 89,624, all of which managed an average sale price of 134% of CAP and a 54-plate 88,058-mile Vauxhall Combo 2000 DTI which reached 127% of CAP.
Once again Shoreham Vehicle Auction’s new managing director and vehicle auction expert Alex Wright took to the rostrum to put his mark on the event:

“I have never seen such packed halls as we had on Tuesday! It was unbelievable and the results speak for themselves! We had some great buyers and sellers and once again everyone enjoyed the experience. We are looking forward to the next ‘Van’ Tastic sale in March and furthering Shoreham Vehicle Auctions’ next stage of expansion.”
