As BCA’s business grows north of the border, it has announced plans to expand its Scottish operations. Glasgow, Edinburgh, Livingstone and Kinross benefited from enhanced sales programmes to manage additional volumes, while an additional remarketing facility is due to be built in Glasgow next year.
The current Glasgow Remarketing Centre has become a specialist Commercial Vehicle Centre as part of phase one of the programme. The centre now stages auctions for both light and heavy commercial vehicles with sales taking place every Tuesday and Friday. Record levels of activity were reported during September.
“BCA Glasgow has been operating at near capacity as BCA continues to win additional car and commercial vehicle business in Scotland. The establishment of a dedicated Commercial Vehicle Centre allows us to optimise the sales programme and provide our commercial vehicle customers with more opportunity to buy or sell stock every week. The changes in Glasgow allow us to enhance our programme of car sales in Edinburgh, Livingstone and Kinross offering a wide selection of dealer, fleet, finance and lease stock every day of the week. It’s now easier for our customers to locate the stock they want, with more choice available for them whether bidding online or in-lane,” explained Stuart Pearson COO UK Remarketing.
“Another significant enhancement to our Scottish sales programme was achieved with the signing of the exclusive remarketing partnership with Taggarts, part of the Lookers Group. BCA now offer over 500 premium high quality cars direct from Taggarts in the new Wednesday mega-sale at BCA Livingstone,” Pearson added.
BCA works with OEMs, fleet operators and dealers to provide the backbone of the UK’s automotive supply chain. From technical and logistics services for new vehicles, refurbishment, storage and logistics for the growing used sector and the core remarketing and auction operation, BCA offers the economies of scale and diversity of services to meet the needs of an impressive portfolio of customers.
