Leading the way in the auction space for EVs is Aston Barclay. With a excess of initiatives designed to enhance the EV buying and selling experience, as a company we are paving the way for a brighter and cleaner motoring future.

One of the barriers to EV adoption has always been the plethora of myths and misconceptions surrounding them. To address this, Aston Barclay has introduced its weekly "Monday Myth Busters" on our social media platforms. These are dedicated to debunking common misconceptions about EVs. From range anxiety to charging issues, the company ensures that potential buyers and sellers are equipped with accurate and relevant information.

Understanding EVs is crucial not just for buyers and sellers, but for the staff facilitating transactions. To this end, Aston Barclay is deeply committed to training its staff extensively on the nuances of electric vehicles. This ongoing training initiative ensures that each member of the Aston Barclay team is well-versed in EV intricacies, thereby guaranteeing a more streamlined and knowledgeable service for clients. 


Charging Infrastructure: The Next Step 

As the number of EVs continues to rise, the need for robust charging infrastructure becomes paramount. Aston Barclay is keenly aware of this and is currently undertaking extensive work to upgrade its charging infrastructure across all its facilities. This move will ensure that EVs are always ready to go post-auction and underscores the company's commitment to a seamless EV auction experience.
