BCA Video Appraisal Service Gives Van Buyers A Head Start
Leading vehicle remarketing company, British Car Auctions (BCA), is urging ‘time-poor’ businesses to make the most of its new Video Appraisal service when looking for their next commercial vehicles. Buyers can take advantage online of a 360 degree view of both the exterior and interior of vans for sale, helping them to create a shortlist of vehicles to bid on before they get to the auction.
“Time is precious for small businesses – especially for owners and managers who are trying to deal with their fleet needs, along with running the business, doing the accounts and probably selling too”, explained Duncan Ward, BCA’s Head of Commercial Vehicle sales. “They are, therefore, unlikely to have a lot of time for walking around a packed hall of vehicles for sale at one of our auctions when looking for their next business vehicles. However, making the right choice is not something that should be done rashly. Business owners need reassurance that the vehicle they take away from the auction centre is a quality asset that will remain a reliable investment for years to come.
“With the BCA Video Appraisal service, buyers can check out potential vehicles online so that they can make a shortlist of vans that will suit their needs before they head to the auction. Combined with the BCA Assured mechanical report – carried out by the AA – we believe we’re offering valuable assistance to time-poor enterprises that need to invest wisely in vehicles for their business.”
The BCA Video Appraisals service has already received recognition for its innovative approach for van buyers, winning the 2014 What Van? Innovation Award. BCA uses the latest generation tablet technology to produce a 360-degree video of the vehicle’s interior, exterior, roof and loadbay condition. The video runs in HD format on PC, tablet and mobile devices and takes 2 minutes to view with a fast scroll option if required. It also offers multiple still images with a zoom feature, to give buyers more flexibility.
