Ryder to open new sales and service centre for used van business

Ryder used car centre

Ryder, the commercial vehicle solutions provider, is to open a sales and service centre for its used vehicle stock on the outskirts of Burton upon Trent in Staffordshire following a £3 million investment.

The nine acre site off the A38 will stock a selection of tractor units, trailers, rigid trucks, and LCVs that have reached the end of their first life lease and are available to purchase. 

The newly centralised Used Vehicle Sales and Service Centre will complement Ryder’s existing used vehicle sales sites in Avonmouth and Rainham, Essex.

 A dedicated team of six technicians will be based at the new centre working in a three-bay workshop.

All Ryder used trucks receive an MOT, a 90-point vehicle inspection, and a clean and valet before sale.

Nigel Martin, used vehicle and asset management director at Ryder, said: "Our investment in this Midlands Used Vehicle Sales and Service Centre allows us to increase the size and scale of our service offering, and gives customers improved accessibility to our used asset stock.”

The Midlands Used Vehicle Sales and Service Centre will be supported by Ryder’s usedapproved.ryder.com online presence. This portal allows customers to select the level of vehicle quality they are looking to meet their needs and budget.

Martin added: "Truck reliability has been improving for some time, making a second-hand vehicle a more viable proposition than ever before.”
