BCA to open 65-acre mega-centre in Bristol
BCA is to open a new 65-acre mega-centre in Bristol to deliver the “most efficient used vehicle facility in the UK”.
Already at an advanced stage of development, according to the group, the site will provide a full online remarketing centre, utilising the latest digital technology to deliver a range of multi-channel remarketing, logistics and technical automotive services.
It will operate 24/7 and have the capacity to handle over 120,000 vehicles per annum.
The site, positioned in a key strategic location within easy access of J18 of the M5, will offer the full range of BCA’s services – defleet and logistics, cosmetic and mechanical preparation, vehicle remarketing, imaging and retail-ready preparation.
It will also utilise BCA’s advanced decision intelligence services to optimise remarketing channel selection and refurbishment opportunities for customers.
BCA COO UK remarketing Stuart Pearson commented: “The new centre, with the capacity to store over 10,000 vehicles on the ground at any one time, forms a strategic part of our growth plans and delivers on our stated intent of driving further efficiencies for our customers across the used vehicle supply chain.”
Pearson added that the new site would help with the growing remarketing volumes being seen by the group. “BCA is handling growing volumes of stock from both new and existing customers across the range of services the group offers. Additional capacity such as this new facility in Bristol is critical to bringing liquidity, efficiency and choice to the automotive sector,” he finished.
