  • Aston Barclay Leeds recognised as top performer for value in Q4 and overall for 2016
  • Leeds and Aston Barclay Westbury occupy top-two positions for value in Q4 and overall for 2016
  • West Yorkshire centre also a joint top performer for service in Q4 2016

Aston Barclay’s Leeds auction centre has been awarded with LeasePlan’s Best Value Provider accreditation for its performance in Q4 2016 and for the year as a whole.

The Hillidge Road site was consistently ranked highly throughout Q4 when measured on value, topping the tables of those sites audited by LeasePlan in November and December. Over the Q4 period, these results were closely followed by the leading remarketing provider’s Westbury centre.

The Leeds branch also scooped the Best Value Provider accolade for its overall 2016 performance after being ranked 1st in value for an unmatched three times during the year.

Aston Barclay’s West Yorkshire centre was also the only measured site to achieve an average conversion rate of over 80% in Q4 2016, while the lowest average number of days on-site outperformed its competitors.

Once again, Westbury performed extremely well for its whole-year efforts, ensuring Aston Barclay occupied the top-two positions for Q4 and 2016, when measured on value.

In terms of service, Leeds also performed extremely well in Q4 2016, achieving an overall platinum rating when measured on admin, valeting, line-up and timing. This led to the centre being named the joint top performer for service of all LeasePlan’s audited sites in Q4 2016.

Its Prees Heath and Westbury sites also achieved gold status overall when measured on service in Q4, achieving platinum ratings for their valeting, line-up and timing.

Martin Potter, Aston Barclay’s Group Operations Director, commented; “Our dedicated employees at Leeds and across the Group continue to perform extremely well, enabling Aston Barclay to secure LeasePlan’s top-two positions when measured on value, both in Q4 and for 2016. This, alongside our impressive service offering, demonstrates our ability to consistently perform against any competitor.”

Paul Mason, LeasePlan’s General Manager, added; “We witnessed outstanding value and service performances by Aston Barclay Leeds, as well as strong service performances by the Prees Heath and Westbury sites overall for 2016, to fully merit this recognition for the Group.”
