Experts in the field of de-fleet management.

At B.I.A.S., we provide comprehensive de-fleet services for small and large corporate customers. We understand the complexities of preparing a commercial fleet for resale or auction, and are fully equipped with a 125,000 sq. ft. centre to ensure the best service possible. From inspection and appraisal, refurbishment, inventory control, vehicle servicing, and decommissioning through to the coordination of multi-channel remarketing – B.I.A.S. really can do it all.

We run a fully-managed, computer-controlled compound to ensure our customers’ storage needs are seamlessly accommodated. While on site, our team of qualified technicians can undertake the mechanical servicing of vehicles as and when required by the customer. We take advantage of a fully-equipped workshop, complete with Solus pro-diagnostic scanners for in-depth vehicle diagnostic testing.

At B.I.A.S., our hands-on approach ensures your vehicles are in the best possible care from start to finish. After carrying out a full fleet inspection, we can advise on what is needed to ensure the vehicles are ready for sale.

Cars, LCVs and HGVs can all be accommodated within our suite which has dedicated spray booths for cars, trucks, articulated trailers and coaches. The main refurbishment centre is complemented by a series of ancillary stations including the SMART repair centre, crash repair centre, mechanical workshops, alloy wheel refurbishment, windscreen repair and replacement, and a tyre replacement facility.

We can also provide de-decaling and wrap removal services, along with LCV decommissioning and refit services prior to vehicle disposal.

Home to Manheim Auctions, B.I.A.S. can also assist in the final disposal of vehicle fleets. Operating from our newly refurbished 60,000 sq. ft. auction centre, Manheim Auctions is capable of handling 60,000 units per annum in a UK-industry-first double blocking facility. Double-block sales offer two vehicles at the same time and in the same lane, and Bruntingthorpe is the UK’s first centre to make it happen making our site a flagship for the future of vehicle auctions.


Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire is the current home of C Walton Limited, Manheim Auctions, Big Thunder Events, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground and the Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, featuring the iconic Cold War Jets Collection as well as a number of other automotive businesses. All situated within the 670-acre site, there is something to meet the needs of each of our customers. Our wide range of facilities allow us to cater for any type of event, from the standard to the obscure, and thanks to our 3.2km straight, Bruntingthorpe still operates as an active airfield.
