At BCA we have created multiple ways to help you carry out a vehicle search. You can search by clicking "Vehicle Search" or "Sales Catalogues" in the top menu.
Or if you know your specific vehicle requirements why not use our intuitive search box. Just type your required key words into the search bar and click "Search" to display the available stock. e.g. blackbushe audi a3
You can also click and browse our "Sales Catalogues" to view full up to date listings for each Auction Centre or Vendor by sale day.
For a more advanced search click on "More search options" where you can filter your results e.g. by:
- Body Colour- NEW
- Sale Date
- Auction Centres
There are many more search options including only showing results with a BCA Assured report or only show vehicles with a V5 present.

New feature - Any "Recently Added" vehicles will now be added at the top of your search results as shown below. These are vehicles that have been added to BCA Search in the last 24 hours so you know what is new.
You can also sort your search results depending on your requirements including a new sort filter for "Recently Added Vehicles".
Vehicle Lot details
Once you have sorted your results you will be shown all the lot details for each vehicle that BCA currently has in stock. Here you can click on a vehicle to see the full details.
- Where the vehicle is located e.g. BCA Leeds
- Who the vendor is e.g. Moneybarn
- Whether the vehicle has a BCA Assured Report – this is an independent multi-point vehicle check carried out by the AA at BCA. The AA Inspectors make over 30 checks on the vehicle to make sure as a buyer you have accurate information and complete transparency of the mechanical condition of the vehicle.
- Whether the vehicle has a Condition Report – The purpose of this report is to identify and describe any interior or exterior defects on a vehicle; based on the severity of these defects the vehicle will be given a BCA grade between 1 and 5. This is not a mechanical check.
- By using the “Print All” button, the website will produce a PDF catalogue that you can then save or send to your printer, and take to the auction hall. Alternatively, use the “Export All” option which generates a spreadsheet containing all the vehicle details.
- You also have the option to Save the Search and be notified when more vehicles matching your search criteria are added.
