Easier damaged vehicle buying

From Thursday May 9, Manheim became the place to go to buy damaged vehicles.
In their regular weekly auctions, held every Thursday at 10.30am, Manheim will offer a wide range of written off vehicles on behalf of ts insurance customers.
With IAG recently appointing the company to handle its large volumes of written off cars, Manheim is one of the market leaders in the supply of damaged vehicles to parts recyclers and the repair trade.
As New Zealand’s largest insurance company, through well-known brands State, AMI and NZI, IAG’s contract with Manheim for the disposal of damaged vehicles is the largest of its type in the country.
It means that every week, buyers will have the largest range of vehicles to choose from when they take part in Manheim’s online Salvage auction.
Broadcast on the internet, the online auction format allows buyers located all around the country to participate in the auction, from the comfort of their workshop, office or even from their home.
Manheim’s ability to offer a highly accessible and convenient sales channel via its unique Simulcast online auction system, was one of the reasons the company was appointed by IAG.
Damaged vehicles are available for viewing at Manheim auction centres in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch on Wednesday’s as well as on the morning of the auction itself.
Buyers can participate in the live auction (conducted from Auckland) in the lanes of Manheim centres, or bid and buy cars using the online system. With vehicles located across Manheim’s three main centres, as well as in key regional storage sites across the country, buyers from any area have access to locally held vehicles as well as stock around the nation.
In addition, a range of selected written off vehicles will also be available for immediate purchase online, 24/7.
For buyers with a particular need it means they don’t need to wait for the auction or risk missing out on a vehicle they really need.
“Now with the largest range of damaged vehicles to choose from, Manheim’s focus is making it as easy as possible for buyers to find exactly what they are looking for”, says Manheim CEO Tim Hudson.
“Our online auction system makes the buying process quick and easy, resulting in time savings for our customers who are all busy running their own businesses.”
