Record week for BCA Glasgow

Following on from the best monthly new car sales figures in a decade, BCA Glasgow where staff celebrated following a record week at the end of March.

BCA Glasgow posted a record result for the week commencing 24th March, selling over 500 vehicles in one week for the first time. 

With the auction centre winning additional business from dealer groups and corporate vendors in recent months, the previous record of 467 was smashed as 517 vehicles were sold.  Scottish trade buyers were particularly active, while nearly a quarter of all the vehicles sold during the week were brought by online bidders - from all over the UK - via BCA Live Online.

Light commercial sales volumes were strong as an additional LCV sale was staged on Monday 24th, March alongside the regular Monday car sale.   The Dealer par exchange sale on Wednesday featured a range of cars from a variety of Blue Chip sources including Peter Vardy, John Clark, Macklin Motors, Lookers and UKCGR.  The week concluded with a second LCV sale featuring vans from Lex Autolease and local fleet operators.

Stuart Beith BCA’s general manager for Scotland said: “With good quality used car and van stock at a premium, BCA Glasgow is offering Scottish buyers the best selection and widest choice of vehicles.  We were delighted to set this impressive new benchmark for our Glasgow centre, which underlines just how active the Scottish motor trade currently is.”

“With three selling days a week, BCA Glasgow offers cars and vans from a variety of Blue Chip sources including well-known dealer groups, national and local fleet and lease operators, the Police, local government and authorities and independent and specialist dealers.”

Beith added: “Our Glasgow sales programme is attracting large crowds of buyers and the bidding has been exceptionally competitive all year.  With the improving economic conditions and ongoing shortage of good retail quality used vehicles, we are expecting a strong turnout for every sale at BCA Glasgow.”
