Hitachi Capital signs remarketing and Inspect and Collect deal with Manheim
Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions, one of the UK’s
largest contract hire and leasing and fleet management companies, has renewed
its remarketing deal with Manheim for the next three years, which will see more
than 7,500 vehicles per year offered through physical and online auction
Simultaneously, Manheim has also agreed a new deal to
supply its Inspect and Collect solution to Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions
from June, with its team members delivering a complete inspection, condition
appraisal and vehicle collection service for Hitachi Capital’s customers.
Manheim handles 99% of Hitachi Capital’s vehicle
disposals, including cars, vans and HGVs.
Manheim’s Inspect and Collect solution includes a
comprehensive and transparent damage capture and recharge process, which is
critical for asset protection from a residual value perspective.
Manheim’s vehicle inspectors are now able to carry out
gradings at the roadside, meaning that its clients receive more detailed
vehicle condition information much earlier in the remarketing process.
For end users, Manheim’s inspection services team ensures
that customer satisfaction is paramount for those having their end of contract
vehicle collected, with the full service offering having been accredited by the
Institute of Customer Service.
Roger Holder, strategic remarketing manager, Hitachi
Capital, said: “We continue to be impressed by Manheim’s performance and
constant innovation, such as delivering the UK’s first ever offsite commercial
vehicle auction at our operations HQ in Wiltshire. We are pleased to be
strengthening our relationship with Manheim through the implementation of its
Inspect and Collect solution and look forward to the continued success of this
Tim Hudson, managing director of Inventory Solutions at

and Collect solution. Both of these wins are testament to our delivery of
exceptional performance to our clients, as well as the highest level of customer
