BCA launches quality initiative

RESIDUAL values of end-of-term fleet cars look set to be given a boost by a new quality assurance initiative launched by British Car Auctions. The initiative called BCA Approved is a nationwide sale programme whereby the company approves the history and description of every car sold through a special sales programme.

Cars selected for the BCA Approved special sale sections will be UK registered and no more than eight years old, with a warranted mileage and the service history or registration documentation available at time of sale.

The number of previous owners will be declared and all vehicles will be offered with no major mechanical faults and a current MoT, where applicable. Every vehicle offered through the BCA Approved programme will be subject to a standard HPI check against registration before the sale, with a further post-sale outstanding finance check.

A full checklist will be provided to show the vehicle has passed the strict BCA Approved criteria as well as the standard HPI check and this will be displayed in the windscreen at the time of sale. If subsequently any vehicle is found not to meet the standards it was sold under, then BCA will take it back.
