Maximum sales opportunities

Firstly, we give you access to all the buyers you need. Thousands of people attend our auctions every week, from trade professionals to private motorists. Many more log on to BCA Live Online – our simultaneous webcasts – to place their bids, so you get the attention of a national buying audience at your local auction centre.  It all adds up to more choice, more competition – and maximum opportunities to sell.

With our new offsite sales retail dealers can simultaneously sell part exchange, excess or over age stock via our online sale channels, while keeping the vehicles on the forecourt.  You don't have to be big to sell at BCA, so whether you want to add one vehicle or many  -  the will be advertised to over 20,000 buyers, making BCA the perfect shop window for all dealerships large and small.

You can even use our network to sell vehicles elsewhere in Europe where we have more than 20 auction centres. Use the (change) facility in the top right hand corner of the website to see our other European operations.

All the information you need

Our integrated systems mean that total vehicle inventory management is at your fingertips. In-life document management, reporting, inspection, logistics, preparation, sales – and more – are available 24/7 through MyBCA and Lifecycle Services (LCS).

Sales are just a click away

As part of our continuing commitment to innovation, we have pioneered the simultaneous broadcast of live auctions over the internet with BCA Live Online. This service lets trade buyers who can’t attend a physical auction take part in sales via the web. With potential customers in the hall competing with online bidders in real time, your vehicles can attract even more attention – which means more potential value for you.  In addition, we hold regular online-only sales with our Bid Now, Buy Now and e-Auction sales.  For vendors, this can mean you can sell your vehicles in one of our auctions without having to move them from your premises or compound.

Market reports and intelligence

Having accurate, up-to-date information is vital if you want to get maximum value from the vehicles you sell. Because we’re at the sharp end, holding hundreds of sales a month, and we’ve invested in the systems needed to make sense of the market, we can provide unrivalled intelligence and insight. Choose from published reports or bespoke research to meet your specific needs.
