Perrys has agreed a three-year deal with Manheim for its part-exchange vehicles, extending the 20-year partnership between the two firms until the end of 2023.
Through the agreement, more than 8,000 cars will be offered through Manheim Leeds, Mansfield, Northampton and Wimbledon. Commercial vehicles will be sold through Manheim’s dedicated commercial vehicle auction centre at Manheim Shepshed.
Perrys is also seeking to make the most of Cox Automotive’s digital solutions as part of the agreement. This includes a group-wide implementation of Cox’s valuation and appraisal product – eVA, which will be used to complement Perrys’ in-store and online sales processes.
Darren Ardron, managing director at Perrys, said: “Manheim continues to provide us with a great solution to remarketing stock and they’ve continued to do this despite the current pandemic. They are also an organisation which shares our values and we believe can meet our needs both now and in the future.”
James Leese, chief customer officer at Cox Automotive, added: “I’m delighted to see our partnership with Perrys go from strength-to-strength and after 20 years that we are still finding new innovative ways to support them.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has meant we are having to work differently with our customers. We’ve been working hard to ensure we still offer an excellent service through our Simulcast-only auction programme. We are committed to delivering outstanding remarketing services and that they remain relevant, efficient and effective despite these different times.”

Earlier this year, Perrys launched a leasing service specialising in personal contract hire (PCH) and business contract hire for cars and commercial vehicles.
The offering was launched to give customers greater choice and flexibility over their contract, appealing to self-employed people and small business owners at a time of ongoing economic uncertainty.
The company said the launch of Perrys Leasing comes in response to the “seismic shift of millennials preferring to rent rather than buy products and services as they seek to maximise value for money”.
