Arrow Auctions is a privately owned company that was established in 1979 at its original premises in Arrow Road, Redditch, Worcestershire. Its primary aim was to provide valuation and auctioneering services to a wide and varied selection of commercial and private clients.
In the early years sales were held monthly and were usually a mixture of general and commercial items; however within a year these had progressed to weekly sales to encompass not only general household items but industrial auctions of plant and machinery, catering equipment, government supply furniture and stock liquidations.
The business has enjoyed continued and steady growth since its inception and as a result relocated in 1991 to its current premises, the old Quinneys Dairy site. Over the next 12 months the six acre site was redeveloped and transformed into 4 permanent salerooms and 25,000 sq ft of secure storage. In 1994 further expansion and development added a dedicated motor auction facility with a provision to offer up to 100 vehicles for sale under cover and parking facilities for up to 200 cars.
The company now has 25 employees, 2 specialist auctioneers and 2 fellow members of the National Association of Valuers & Auctioneers (NAVA) as well as being members of the National Association of Motor Auctions.
Our dedicated Motor Auction facility was opened in 1994 and currently operates two public auctions a week on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 6:00pm.
Arrow Motor Auctions disposes of over 4000 vehicles a year for a wide range of clients such as main agent dealerships, government departments, civil enforcement agencies, courts and private entrants.
Each sale offers prospective customers the opportunity to view over 80 vehicles under cover with often over 200 vehicles offered for sale every week.
Our client base is extensive and includes Main Agent Dealerships, Motor Vehicle Traders, HM Revenue & Customs, HM Court Services, Liquidators, Insolvency Practitioners, Private Bailiff Companies and Private Entrants. As such we offer a wide and varied selection of vehicles to suit all budgets, many without reserves, with new stock arriving daily.
Commercial vehicles ranging from small vans to large box lorries are offered in our auction on Wednesdays.
As a vendor you can be certain of a prompt and professional service at very competitive rates and be confident that your vehicle will be extensively marketed to obtain the best price.
As a customer you can have the confidence to purchase knowing, as members of the National Association of Motor Auctions, we are governed by their code of practice:
1. To promote “best practice” in the industry
2. To be fair to both seller and purchaser
3. To protect the purchaser against defect in title
4. To commit to the NAMA Code of Practice
5. To ensure all staff are familiar with customer’s rights under the code.
All sold vehicles are checked for provenance via the Experian data base, to ensure that they are not subject to Outstanding Finance, Accident Damage, or have been stolen.
The majority of our sales are now held on-line using established and proven platforms of i-bidder and Bidspotter; this offers our commercial and government clients such as liquidators, receivers, finance companies and HM Revenue & Customs an increased and international audience of potential bidders.
Currently the company offers a nationwide valuation and removal/collection service to all its clients and provides ample secure storage and whenever required sales of goods can be arranged to be held on site, on-line or by attendance.
Arrow Auctions is proud of its independence and flexibility which allows us to offer our clients cost effective and tailor made solutions to the re-marketing and disposal of assets from whatever source.
