G3 Vehicle Auctions To Open 14-Acre Site

G3 Vehicle Auctions is moving ahead with plans for a brand new 14-acre vehicle marketplace, which will be sited off junction 32 of the M62 in Yorkshire, within the M1, M62, A1 triangle, as part of its expansion.

Insider Media reports that the new development is set to be the largest purpose-built independently owned and operated, by seasoned industry experts Matt Dale and Amanda Holtby, auction and refurbishment site within the last 20 years.

Construction on the site began in March with the main contractor Harris CM and is scheduled for completion in January 2021. The facility will have the capacity for remarketing 50,000 vehicles per year once it reaches full operational status, which will effectively double the company’s current capacity.

Joint managing director of G3 Vehicle Auctions Matt Dale said: “Whilst there has been a seismic shift to online-only auctions in reaction to the events of this year, we truly believe that a mix of digital and physical solutions will be essential to supporting the automotive trade long into the future.”

He explained that the firm proud to announce this ‘good news story’, and was heavily investing in the creation of a multi-channel and future-proof experience to combine both online and physical solutions for customers to meet the changes needed in the industry.

The new site aims to be much more customer-centric, and the design process has been focussed to represent that, as well as building on the ‘essence’ of the popular auction events at G3 in recent years.

“The centre will be packed with technology that has genuine purpose to help us open the best remarketing, refurbishment and asset management experience anywhere in the UK,” Dale added.

The company has outgrown its current four-acre site, located near junction 30 on the M62, on the outskirts of Leeds, and when completed, will relocate all its staff to the new facility, as well as recruiting up to 30 new employees.

The high-tech design of the new facility provides an optimal vehicle workflow. The pre-sale process involves the implantation of artificial intelligence (AI) in a ‘drive-through’ vehicle inspection systems that use over 20 cameras to inspect up to 85 vehicles per hour.

Captured imagery will be enhanced by new multi-turntable imaging studios, specifically designed, and lit to enhance car and light commercial vehicle (LCV) assets.

A new 14,000 sq ft centre located adjacent to the main remarketing hub will provide de-fleet and refurbishment facilities, and the site will also include infrastructure for up to 250 EV fast-charge points in expectation for the increased demand for electric and hybrid vehicle remarketing.

The site will be employing eco-friendly features such as wastewater recycling and solar power, incorporated into the design by Leeds architects HTC.
