Australian company Mannheim Auctions has faced problems selling vehicles that had been hit by heavy hail back in January. According to The CanberrTimes, about 4,000 cars have accumulated at the auction site.
All cars put up for sale were bought by Mannheim Auctions from insurance companies, which wrote off the cars due to severe damage to the body and glass. At the beginning of the year, Canberra was hit by heavy hail, the ice of which reached the size of a golf ball. After that, tens of thousands of car owners turned to insurers for compensation.
Representatives of the auction house planned to hold an auction for the sale of wrecked cars in February, but they were prevented by the restrictions that came into force related to the coronavirus. We managed to sell only a small part of lots online: customers were additionally scared away by possible problems with the timely registration of decommissioned cars.
- It is not specified when the auction will take place now.
In connection with the pandemic, parking lots of colossal sizes began to appear in different countries for various reasons: due to a decrease in the flow of tourists, the introduction of bans on car sharing, and also due to a sharp decline in sales. For example, car rental companies and car manufacturers have set up parking at airbases and ports in the UK, as well as in the US on reed fields and large stadiums.
