Manheim UK recently held an offsite sale for French automaker Citroën atop a structure surrounded by ocean.
The sale was held on No Man’s Fort, a 150-year-old facility off the coast of the Isle of Wight near Portsmouth, England. Specialist offsite auction equipment, Citroën guests, and Manheim team members were transported to the facility where 225 vehicles were offered.
This, the company noted, provided logistical challenges. Even still with these challenges, all of the 225 vehicles offered at the sale were sold at or above their reserve price, according to the company.
