BCA launches new Saturday online auction programme

BCA is introducing a new online sales programme starting tomorrow (Saturday, September at 19) at 9.30am. 

It will be the first time that BCA has sold exclusively online for six days a week and the sale will offer a choice of around 1,200 vehicles including both cars and light commercials at a variety of age, mileage, condition and price points.

The new sale will feature vehicles from vendors including UKCGR Premium and UKCGR Trade and Select, BCA Outsourced Solutions Lex, Europcar and dealer entered stock from Arnold Clark, Bristol Street Motors, CarShop, Cazoo Part Exchange, John Clark Motor Group and Sinclair Group.

BCA’s Stuart Pearson, chief operating officer for UK Remarketing, said: “We are pleased to start this new Saturday sale programme as we continue to enhance our online auction programme to meet the changing needs of our buyers in the post-Covid market.”

He added: “We are continuously enhancing our digital offering for our buyers, by introducing new functionality to the BCA Buyer app that makes it even easier for our customers to interact with our online auction platforms and making major improvements to bca.com. 

“Our new online Click and Collect service allows our customers to arrange vehicle collection nationwide, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, safely, socially distanced and in line with current Covid-19 guidance, saving time and improving efficiency.”

Pearson continued: “We have had up to 1,500 buyers logging in for some individual sales underlining the appetite the market has for the stock on offer at BCA.  In addition, the activity through our fixed price BCA Buy Now channel and BCA Bid Now timed auctions continues to accelerate as our customers recognise the flexibility and choice these channels deliver.

“Currently, all sales remain online only and we’re keeping close to the latest government guidance in order to protect our people, customers and suppliers.”
