BCA launches new Saturday online auction programme

BCA is extending its selling schedule with the introduction of a new online sales programme on Saturdays.

BCA’s Saturday online sales programme will start on 19 September at 9:30am

It will be the first time that BCA has sold exclusively online for six days a week; the company said the move was the result of demand continuing at exceptional levels across the wholesale used vehicle market.

The first Saturday sale will commence tomorrow, 19 September, at 9:30am and 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, including vehicles from Lex and Europcar.

BCA’s Stuart Pearson, COO UK remarketing, said the new Saturday sale programme was part of a continued move to enhance the online auction programme to meet the changing needs of buyers in the post-COVID market.

He added: “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 BCA is following latest government guidance in order to protect people, customers and suppliers.

The company is also continuously enhancing its digital offering for buyers, including by introducing new functionality to the BCA Buyer app that makes it even easier for customers to interact with its online auction platforms, and making major improvements to bca.com.

Pearson continued: “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.”
