BCA focuses on Bridgwater in South-West

BCA has confirmed that it is transferring business from its centres in Newport and Tewkesbury to the supercentre at Bridgwater just off Junction 23 of the M5.

Fleet News was first to report how BCA had decided to mothball the two sites in November, 2011, with the Bridgewater site picking up their existing business.

The 20-acre Bridgwater centre serves an active catchment area in the M5 corridor and into the South-West of the UK and will benefit from a significant boost to business as a result, say BCA.

This in turn will create opportunities for local and regional customers to capitalise on the increased market activity generated, says BCA. The facility has two auction halls and undercover viewing for 600 vehicles and like all BCA centres it offers Live Online for all sales.

A number of key staff have relocated from the Newport and Tewkesbury operations, and both facilities have been mothballed.

BCA's UK managing director Andrew Hulme said: "We have taken the decision to focus our business objectives in the South-West onto our existing supercentre in Bridgwater, where we can offer all our customers a first class service in one of the best appointed remarketing facilities anywhere in the UK."

The Bridgwater sales programme has been expanded to four sale days each week with a new sale being added every Monday featuring budget priced vehicles from franchised dealers and vehicles National police authorities.

Tuesdays will feature regular sales on behalf of BMW (UK) and Wednesdays will show case over 400 entries from the south west regions leading franchised dealer groups and a regular stand-alone sale for Citroen UK.

The programme will be completed on Thursdays with up to 200 late model cars from Motability Europe's largest fleet organisation.
