Manheim Continues Simulcast, Waives Fees

By Staff Writer March 30, 2020 1043

Manheim President Grace Huang released a statement that the company will move forward on digital sales at this time.

“After thoughtful consideration and with our objectives in mind, we have made the decision to extend our current auction operations, as local, state and national directives allow,’ Huang said in a press release on March 27. “We will continue to closely monitor changing conditions and be prepared to address COVID-19 developments as they arise. Listed below are details related to this update.”

Huang said Manheim will continue to offer Simulcast-only sales at Manheim locations, where local, state and national directives allow. Manheim will continue to waive Simulcast buyer and seller fees. Online Vehicle Exchange (OVE), Manheim Express and Private Stores remain open as digital inventory sources.

All auction facilities will remain closed to buyers and sellers on both sale and non-sale days. Only vehicle pick-up and drop off will be allowed.

Sellers will not be allowed to represent their vehicles at our auction locations. All selling will be conducted via the Remote-Seller tool. Transactions such as payments and arbitration will be handled via alternate means.

The company’s ongoing policies include continuing existing measures to limit exposure to COVID-19 at Manheim locations: follow protocols to activate closures, deep cleanings and quarantine procedures, as needed; routinely communicate about and follow CDC sanitation guidelines; extend cleaning crew hours; post signs to remind team members to wash and sanitize their hands often and instruct team members who feel ill not to report for work and communicate with their managers.

To support independent dealers during this challenging time, NextGear Capital is offering a relief package.
