Aston Barclay has completed the purchase of a new car auction site, fulfilling its ambitions of becoming a truly national operation. 

The multi-million pound investment by Aston Barclay Group will see the redevelopment of the former four and a half acre site previously occupied by Motor Auctions Leeds. 

Strategically placed, the acquisition of the Hillidge Road site, south of Leeds and close to the M621, further strengthens Aston Barclay’s position in the market place and will complement its centres in Chelmsford, Essex, Westbury in Wiltshire and Prees Heath, Shropshire. 

Initially, Aston Barclay will stage two sales a week, disposing of up to 300 cars and LCVs. 

Tim Hudson, Aston Barclay’s Managing Director, said: “The acquisition of the Hillidge Road site in Leeds is strategically important to Aston Barclay Group as it completes our national footprint. We have commissioned an extensive refurbishment programme that will enable us to open for business
