Manheim, the leading UK provider of integrated products and services for the vehicle remarketing sector, and Arval have signed an exclusive contract for the delivery of services for 10,000 vehicles a year.

This deal further strengthens Arval’s long-standing relationship with Manheim, part of the Cox Automotive Group, with an additional 6,000 commercial vehicles and cars a year set to pass through the provider’s auction lanes. Moreover, as part of the contract, Manheim will offer a centralised defleet service for Arval supported by its Vehicle Solutions centres at Coventry and Leeds.

“It is a fantastic business win for Manheim to strengthen its relationship with such a prestigious customer. We are very much looking forward to continuing to provide them with our market-leading services,” said Pete Bell, managing director for Manheim. “I am delighted that Arval has chosen to offer additional volume through Manheim’s auction lanes, and also take advantage of our defleet management offering.”

A sales programme offering quality Arval stock has already been launched by Manheim at its state of the art auction centre in Bruntingthorpe and will shortly start introducing Arval vehicles into its auction programme at Manheim Colchester.

“We have enjoyed an effective partnership with Manheim as the remarketing provider for our commercial vehicles for many years, and are pleased to be extending this to include cars and defleet services,” said Stuart Chamberlain, remarketing sales manager for Arval. “We look forward to continuing to benefit from the great results and customer service that we have come to expect from Manheim over the months ahead.”
