Leaseplan’s ready to retail success at BCA

Nearly every car on offer at the LeasePlan Ready to Retail sale at BCA Nottingham on Friday 14th June sold meaning the sale was a great success.

The special sale featured 110 hand-picked grade 1, 2 & 3 cars which were retail cleaned and smart repaired by BCA prior to sale and were offered with a V5, service history and a BCA assured report. Around 300 buyers participated in the sale, with more than 200 logging on via BCA’s Live Online bidding service.

A total of 103 cars were sold for a 94% conversion with nearly 50% of the purchases being made by online bidders.

BCA and LeasePlan offered buyers half-price UK mainland delivery on all purchases made at the Ready to Retail sale, and there were spot prizes throughout the event and complimentary refreshments including a hog roast.

LeasePlan’s Paul Mason, general manager – auction sales, said: “The response from buyers to this sale underlines the demand for good quality, well-presented, ready-to-retail stock. We worked closely with the BCA Nottingham team to ensure we offered a broad selection of desirable cars and we were delighted by the excellent result achieved.”

Kathy Horsey, BCA general manager – corporate sales added: “With quality stock at a premium, dealers welcomed the opportunity to purchase from this superb selection of cars offered by LeasePlan.  The market remains very short of good quality used cars up to four years old and this sale certainly caught the imagination of our buyers."
