The RAC has won a new three-year contract to provide specialist inspection services to auction business BCA.
The deal will see the RAC carry out pre-sale inspections on around 750,000 vehicles a year at BCA’s remarketing centres nationwide, as part of the BCA Assured programme.
BCA works with OEMs, fleet operators and dealers to provide the backbone of Europe's automotive supply chain, remarketing nearly 1.5 million vehicles annually.
Stuart Pearson, BCA’s COO UK Remarketing, said: “We look forward to working with the RAC to innovate and enhance the BCA Assured programme to deliver even more detailed and accurate reports for vendors and buyers alike.”
The BCA Assured programme delivers a 30+ point independent pre-sale mechanical inspection on vehicles sold by BCA that is used as part on the online catalogue description.
As well as providing a bespoke pre-sale auction inspections service, tailored to BCA’s needs, the RAC will be capturing additional vehicle data to provide BCA with a richer insight into the condition of vehicles that it handles. The RAC will also be looking at how the process of completing individual inspections can be made more efficient without compromising quality, to cope with the rising numbers of vehicles that BCA remarkets annually.
