Private hire company Addison Lee has extended its used vehicle remarketing contract with auction firm Aston Barclay by a further 12 months.
The news comes as Addison Lee starts to defleet the first of its Euro 6 diesel vehicles - Ford Galaxys - which are compliant with the new London Ultra-Low Emission Zone.
Addison Lee fleet director Richard Dagger said: "Aston Barclay have been our remarketing partner since we first started to use auctions to dispose of our fleet.
"They have proven to be dynamic, forward thinking and dedicated to achieving leading results, across our ever-changing and developing fleet as we strive to improve the quality of the air within the areas we operate.
"We look forward to our continued success and partnership."
Aston Barclay group managing director Martin Potter said: "It is fantastic to continue to build on our already highly successful partnership with Addison Lee across our group.
"An interesting development to the relationship is the changing stock profile with Euro 6 now returning to market. These highly efficient, ultra-low emission vehicles present considerably higher Cap HPI values than previous Addison Lee sales stock - something buyers can initially be sceptical of - but the benefits of Euro 6 powertrains are great.
"In combination with the high specification of the Addison Lee fleet in general, these vehicles represent great value for money, especially for those operating in or around the capital."
