John Pye launches vehicle auctions at expanded hub

The UK’s largest auction house, Chamber patron John Pye Auctions, is expanding its recently opened Chesterfield hub to launch weekly vehicle auctions. The 233,000sq ft Chesterfield

site opened in March this year and is the second largest in the John Pye UK network, with weekly auctions running for thousands of items. Its vehicles department currently

sells 30,000 vehicles per year on behalf of Government authorities, lenders, large fleet operators and vehicle retailers. The latest expansion at

Chesterfield will provide a new route to market for local used vehicle retailers, established traders and private individuals.

‘There is a clear gap in the local market for the efficient disposal of vehicles’

Since launching the division in

2011, the national auctioneer has seen a wide range of cars, motorcycles, vans and other vehicles come through its salesrooms, including unique and unusual lots such as Formula 1 cars. More recently, it auctioned a

2016 McLaren 570GT and a classic ‘barn find’ collection, which featured a red Dennis N Type Fire Engine and a collectable Morris Minor 1000 Traveller. Lee Mabbutt, Head of Vehicles at

John Pye Auctions, said: “We are thrilled to be expanding our Chesterfield operation. There is a clear gap in the local market for the

efficient disposal of vehicles and our team is prepared to offer bespoke solutions, giving vendors access to the John Pye client database of more than 400,000 registered bidders. “Consigning vehicles is easy: we

accept cars, LCVs, motorcycles, motorhomes, caravans and anything else in between.” Multi-award-winning John Pye

Auctions celebrated its 50th anniversary last year and reported a record-breaking trading year in 2018, with the company seeing significant growth in online bidders, as well as increased footfall across its UK auction showrooms.
