Entered direct from the Police Authority with the V5 document, the vehicle was pre-sale prepared and was in good condition for the age and mileage. It sold for £6,600 – equivalent to 124% of Cap Clean – plus VAT on top.

The vehicle was displayed with a digital image on BCA’s online Commercial Auction View service which is widely used by both trade and non-trade buyers to locate vehicles.
