Auction Converts Facility to Mechanic Shop

By Staff Writer May 27, 2021

Manheim Central Florida has converted a building once used to host night sales into an 8,500-square-foot mechanic facility dedicated to retail reconditioning. With this service, Manheim delivers frontline ready vehicles, enabling clients to devote more time to customer pay work and focus on their other retail operations.

The transformation began in late 2018 when Manheim Orlando was at its capacity for retail reconditioning and looked to nearby Manheim Central Florida for help. That location had unused space in a multipurpose building that hosted regular night sales and outfitted it with 10 mechanic lifts to create a dedicated space for retail reconditioning. The move created capacity for both locations and allowed Manheim Central Florida clients to save the cost of having to transport their units to Manheim Orlando for reconditioning.

“This is an excellent example of how Manheim’s Market Centers structure delivers greater opportunities and efficiencies for clients when nearby auctions work cooperatively to share support functions,” said Catherine Woodall, an assistant vice president for the Orlando Market Center, which includes Manheim Orlando and Manheim Central Florida.
