Coronavirus update

Important Coronavirus (COVID-19) update for all customers – Closure to all our offices

In response to the Prime Minister’s announcement tonight imposing strict restrictions in the UK to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus, we will be closing all our offices, auction centres and vehicle services sites as soon as possible under a managed process. This means that we will also be suspending all our physical auction sales immediately until further notice. The planned auctions on Simulcast for Tuesday 24th will not go ahead whilst we make the preparations for closure.

We will be working through the details of the closure process on Tuesday and will communicate further as soon as we are able to. The health and well-being of team members remains top priority, as well as ensuring the safety of our customers and suppliers. We appreciate that this is an unsettling time but I’m sure you understand that this highly necessary and responsible course of action must be taken quickly.

On a personal note, please be assured that myself and the team are committed to keeping the wholesale market moving and are working together with our customers during this unprecedented situation.

Thank you.

Martin Forbes,
CEO, Cox Automotive UK
