BCA has announced plans to expand its Scottish operations with enhanced sales programmes and Glasgow remarketing facility construction plans.
The sales programmes have been introduced in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Livingstone and Kinross to manage additional volume, while the remarketing construction is set to start in the new year.
BCA’s chief operating officer of UK remarketing Stuart Pearson said: “BCA Glasgow has been operating at near capacity as BCA continues to win additional car and commercial vehicle business in Scotland.
"The establishment of a dedicated Commercial Vehicle Centre allows us to optimise the sales programme and provide our commercial vehicle customers with more opportunity to buy or sell stock every week.
Phase one of the programme has seen the current Glasgow Remarketing Centre become a specialist Commercial Vehicle Centre. The centre now stages auctions for both light and heavy commercial vehicles with sales taking place every Tuesday and Friday. Record levels of activity were reported during September.
Pearson said: “The changes in Glasgow allow us to enhance our programme of car sales in Edinburgh, Livingstone and Kinross offering a wide selection of dealer, fleet, finance and lease stock every day of the week.
"It’s now easier for our customers to locate the stock they want, with more choice available for them whether bidding online or in-lane.
“Another significant enhancement to our Scottish sales programme was achieved with the signing of the exclusive remarketing partnership with Taggarts, part of the Lookers Group.
"BCA now offer over 500 premium high quality cars direct from Taggarts in the new Wednesday mega-sale at BCA Livingstone.”
BCA has made the changes to support “significant growth opportunities in the Scottish market”, but Pearson says this is just the beginning.
“The new centre in Glasgow forms only part of our plans and we expect to further expand our estate to ensure that BCA is there to support our customers every step of the way,” said Pearson.
