About Shoreham Vehicle Auctions

 

We are a leading, independent, southern England remarketing operation established in 1961 at the ‘Shoreham Lighthouse’ site. Due to continued growth, we later relocated to the Lancing Business Park - where we remain today.

Since being purchased in 2010 the site has undergone considerable improvements, including a dedicated vehicle appraisal and imaging centre with ‘defleet capabilities’. We have also invested significant sums in technology to create a fully interactive website which has been designed to maximise effectiveness and embrace current market trends.

We sell vehicles on behalf of our customer base which includes leasing and finance companies; franchised and non-franchised dealer groups; local authorities; and charities. We do this via a range of remarketing services including both physical and online auctions which provide an individual, flexible and personal approach to purchasing. We are constantly developing our buyer base in order to maximise the value of assets sold.

Our team of highly experienced and dedicated staff focus on delivering a totally professional, personal service.

In 2018 we won the ‘Innovation and Remarketing Award’ awarded by Fleetworld magazine, a result of working with ‘The Energy Saving Trust’ team to bring an understanding of electric vehicles (EVs) to the remarketing sector.

We are very much community oriented and held our first charity Auction in 2011, for our chosen local charity - Chestnut Tree House. Through the generosity of various buyers, local independent and national dealer groups who generously donated prizes and vehicles, supported by a percentage of our proceeds, we raised £1,900. Since then, we have raised a total of £140,000 for Chestnut Tree House with the auction now an annual event. In 2019 we won the Chestnut Tree House Business Award, recognising our efforts over the years.

In 2016, our in-house restaurant was taken over by local chef Clay Morris. Since then, the kitchen and menu has had a total refurbishment with the restaurant being rebranded as ‘The Pit Stop’. Pulled pork, Asian Broth, delicious homemade cakes and pastries, as well as many more culinary delights can be sampled, not to mention various derivatives of the 'good old' English Breakfast.
