Hitachi Transit for Manheim charity auction

Manheim Hitachi For TransitHitachi Capital Commercial Vehicles has donated a five-year old Ford Transit for Manheim to sell during its fortnight of Transit 50th birthday auction events, with 100 per cent of the hammer price going to charity. It will be auctioned off at the leasing company’s regular fortnightly sale at Manheim Haydock on Tuesday 11 August.

The Transit supplied by Hitachi Capital to help with the two-week fundraising effort is a 2010 Transit 115hp 2.2TDCI MWB medium roof 330. The van has optional air conditioning, a twelve month MoT and 86,000 miles on the clock. The winning bidder will pay no buyer indemnity or Simulcast fees, and will also benefit from free delivery and a Platinum Plus valet, donated by PJM Group.

To celebrate the Ford Transit’s landmark birthday, which started on 3 August and run until 14 August, Manheim is pledging £10 for each Transit it sells at its auction events, with £5 donated to Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity long-supported by Ford of Britain, and £5 going to the Manheim Foundation. Manheim has a fundraising target of £10,000 and has so far pledged £2,600 from the sale of 210 Transit vans.

Manheim 50th Transit 2015“We are absolutely thrilled and incredibly thankful for Hitachi Capital’s generosity in donating this Ford Transit for sale during its regular auction slot at our Haydock site,” said James Davis, director of commercial vehicles at manheim. “As with every van we sell, we will be seeking the best possible price, with the only difference in this case being that 100 per cent of the hammer price will be going to our two fantastic good causes.”
 
Jon Lawes, managing director at Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions, commented: “The Transit has supported businesses for 50 years and we are delighted to be able to provide this vehicle for the auction to support Manheim’s two chosen charities. We look forward to finding out the final amount when the hammer drops on 11 August.”
