BCA receives commercial vehicle boost at Measham centre
The new purpose built facility includes a large undercover auction hall and rostrum with full Live Online and e-Auction capability, back office and vendor hospitality facilities. Sales run in tandem, which means Measham now has the capacity to offer over 500 light commercials through two lanes every sale day.
The official opening sale took place on Tuesday 27 March and offered almost 400 vehicles, and featured stock from a number of a large contract hire, fleet and dealer groups including Lex Autolease, Alphabet, Lombard and Ford Retail. A strong turnout of buyers and plenty of Live Online activity saw over 80% of the entry sold for 100% of CAP.
Alongside the weekly LCV sales, Measham will continue to stage fortnightly heavy commercial sales on every second Thursday and specialist monthly Plant & Equipment and Farm & Agricultural sales.
Dominic Burr, Centre manager, commented: 'Measham is one of the busiest Commercial Auction centres in the BCA network and we are all delighted with this new facility which gives us the capability of handling a much larger volume of vehicles every sale day.
'The work was completed right on schedule and we had great support from buyers and sellers alike for this first sale in the new auction hall.
'BCA Measham offers everything for specialist commercial vehicle buyers and sellers in one convenient central location with first class facilities and a comprehensive programme of sales featuring LCVs, HGVs, Plant and Farming equipment' he added.
