Wakefield’s very own online asset disposal and auction experts BPI Auctions have been making waves in the sector with a fantastic service that has helped many businesses to liquidate assets and free up cash for much needed refurbishment, a reinjection of capital and in many cases a fresh lease of life. In addition, they recently established their own online marketplace, providing a local alternative to the faceless likes of eBay – via which items can be sold and a networking community is beginning to thrive. Such achievements have not gone unnoticed and BPI Auctions is a company on the move and is under the gaze of many industry people, leading to a surge in business and the need for expansion.
Those who live in the Wakefield catchment area may have noticed a large new building popping up next to the company’s original Wakefield site on Normanton Industrial Estate. This is the small matter of a 26,500 square foot development which will be used to host auctions in the flesh coincident with the online auctions. This means that bidders will have the option of turning up on the day or bidding online via the company’s website. Not only does the new build fulfil the ambitions of BPI Auctions to have a physical space for hosting auctions, it also enables them to tighten up operations by bringing every aspect of the business to within close proximity, further strengthening the customer service aspect of the enterprise. The building will be split between an auction house; a showroom; state of the art offices and brand new meeting rooms from which business can be conducted and clients met.
The building is very close to being fully fitted and ready for operational use and will be opened in the very near future. The location of the site, being situated so near to the M62, makes it extremely easy for prospective bidders to attend and also facilitates smooth delivery and collection for BPI Auctions’ constantly expanding customer base. As with any new development it also signals a welcome boost for the local economy in what have been testing times. There has been a substantial investment in the building and the whole project will be likely to lead to a number of new jobs, not to mention providing a convenient collection point for local businesses dealing in the purchase or sale of assets.
The need for a larger facility has been something of a gradual realization for BPI, who recognize that it will make for an even smoother ride for all of their customers. As a company, it is in the very DNA of BPI Auctions to go the extra mile for all of their clients across the whole gamut of sectors, no matter what items are being sold. They work tirelessly with all sizes of businesses, from small ‘bedroom’ operations through to local, national and even multinational businesses.
Their experience in working with all manner of entities mean they are incredibly well placed to find the perfect asset disposal solution for all in double-quick time and now from a central hub to be proud of. As mentioned, the new site allows room for a showroom, which is incredibly exciting and will be used to showcase items from outdoor and leisure ranges, timber buildings and barbecues and garden equipment and power washers. This offers great visual potential, allowing everyone to see first-hand just what quality products are on offer.
So, if you’re in the local area in the near future, why not head over to the site to check out the new building.
