Coronavirus: BCA vehicle auctions go online only

BCA Buyer app

BCA sales has announced all vehicle auctions will go online only from Thursday (March 26) to ensure the well-being of customers and staff in relation to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

All BCA sales will only be accessible through BCA Live Online and the BCA Buyer app, with no physical buyer attendance at sales anywhere in the BCA network.  This is introduced as a temporary measure and will be reviewed regularly, the remarketing company said.

BCA will continue to run the full programme of sales nationwide, with all centres selling digitally.  The full programme of online-only auction sales, Bid Now and Buy Now sales continues.

Stuart Pearson, BCA’s chief operating officer for UK Remarketing, said: “BCA have continued to operate normally for as long as possible to support our customers, but we have decided that from Thursday 26th March all BCA sales will only be accessible online.

“We remain committed to providing customers with access to our market leading remarketing services, offering buyers the best choice of stock and sellers a range of remarketing platforms to meet their needs. 

“In the current circumstances, we believe this will be best done digitally to prioritise the well-being of customers and our people alike.”

Customers can still pay for vehicles at their local BCA auction centre.  Alternatively, BCA can email the invoice with payment instructions to pay online.

Buyers can continue to collect vehicles from their local auction centre, with BCA advising customers to contact the auction centre in advance to check the arrangements.   BCA can also organise delivery for customers, with online booking available.

BCA customers currently without BCA Live Online access or the BCA Buyer app can apply to bid by completing the BCA online application form.   

To download the BCA Buyer app, search ‘BCA Buyer’ on the App Store or Google Play Store.
