ManheimFowles First Ever Public Auction a Huge Success

ManheimFowles first ever public auction has been a huge success, with over 200 people attending the Auckland auction last Saturday. The auction is the first of many, with ManheimFowles launching new weekly public auctions every Saturday commencing at 12 noon.

The Auckland facility was abuzz with crowds interested in finding a car that suited both their needs and their budget.  ManheimFowles staff were kept busy with enquiries about the cars on offer and how to buy at auction. The auction itself was action packed with spirited bidding and buying keeping the gavel busy all day.  Being the weekend, there was also entertainment provided to keep the kids occupied.

Alan Roderick, General Manager of ManheimFowles New Zealand, said “We are absolutely delighted with the response to our first ever public auction. With 50 cars sold and over 200 people in attendance, the result is very pleasing. Excitement levels were sky-high and you could really sense the crowd’s anticipation and our budget conscious buyers certainly were not disappointed”.

“While we are not the largest auction house in New Zealand we do pride ourselves on being absolutely the best! We are totally focused on offering the public the best customer focused auction experience and I encourage anyone looking for a used vehicle to come down and try their hand at our Saturday Public Auctions. I am sure that even if they don’t find the car they are looking for they will still find the experience enjoyable”.
