Texas Lone Star Auto Auction – Lubbock, part of the XLerate Group Auctions, held a successful first mobile sale featuring Don Chalmers Ford of Rio Rancho, N.M. last month, and has added the New Mexico dealership to its roster of mobile sale sites.
The auction said that 100 percent of the inventory at the auction’s first mobile sale sold and the Chalmers Ford dealership has agreed to hold more sales monthly.
The sales will be on site at the store near Albuquerque and simulcasted, as well.
“Don Chalmers Ford is a very well-respected dealership, and we were honored when they agreed to partner with us in March for a mobile auction. With 100-percent sold on our first outing, they immediately agreed to a monthly mobile sale with us.” Texas Lone Star Auto Auction – Lubbock general manager Dale Martin said in a news release.
“After many years working in the Albuquerque market we saw a need for a stronger auction for northern New Mexico, and after a longtime selling relationship with Don Chalmers Ford it made perfect sense to partner with them to bring cars for sale to that market,” Martin continued.
Texas Lone Star Auto Auction – Lubbock holds its regular sale at 9 a.m. (CST) each Wednesday. The auction said it regularly offers consignment averaging 800 plus units each week.
“I was truly excited about the results of our first sale and am ready to do it again. We are planning the next sale in April to be even larger than the first,” added Brad Poole, pre-owned director at Chalmers Ford.
