Manheim Expands Local Auction Network

By Staff Writer July 19, 2021

Manheim recently expanded its Local Auction Network to include Manheim Montpelier. The new location (previously Montpelier Auto Auction) held its grand opening sale on July 13 and sold more than half of the 109 vehicles offered.

The new site represents the first-ever physical presence for Manheim and clients in the region. With four auction lanes, sales will take place bi-weekly on Tuesdays at 10:00a.m. and feature multiple-sellers. Currently, Manheim conducts 49 local auction sales each month, including 31 recurring and 18 event sales.

  • Manheim’s local auctions are offered to clients in three ways:

  • 21 locally-branded facilities nationwide via Digital Block™ sales. These sales can start with one anchor partner and expand to multiple consignors.
  • Dedicated trailer or bus units outfitted to conduct sales both in-person and via Simulcast. 
  • Event sales, that can be held at different venues based on consignor preference. Sellers provide the vehicles and location, with the ideal local auction candidate having at least 100 vehicles for sale each month. In addition to delivering a targeted buyer base, these sales also enable consignors to reduce transportation and travel costs.
    All options include an auctioneer and support staff, along with the Manheim services that dealers rely upon, such as Simulcast, financing, condition reports and assurance solutions. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, all sales require clients and employees to wear face coverings unless they are fully vaccinated, provided state and local mandates permit.
