29 May 2015 - BCA’s biggest ever LCV sale attracts the buyers

Europe’s largest weekly LCV sales programme just got bigger

Buyers turned out in their hundreds as BCA Blackbushe staged its largest ever light commercial vehicle sale on Thursday 14 May.  The regular weekly sale attracted an entry of nearly 600 vehicles – the largest to date - selling 85% of the entry for above CAP values.

The sale at BCA Blackbushe attracted a crowd of over 300 buyers and, with every vehicle available to Live Online bidders, a further 200 buyers logged on to bid digitally during the sale.   Many vehicles were catalogued using BCA’s award winning Video Appraisal and BCA Assured package which enables corporate vendors to demonstrate the quality of their stock and build buyer confidence. 

Notably, the event marked the launch sale at Blackbushe for Arval who offered and sold a superb selection of three to four year old contact hire vans.  The new fortnightly sale section made a strong start selling nearly every vehicle on offer and attracting plenty of new buyers to Blackbushe. 

There were also strong sale performances from ALD Automotive, Alphabet, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Inchcape Fleet Solutions, Leasedrive, LeasePlan, Lex Autolease, Lombard, Volkswagen Financial Services and UKCGR Commercial.

BCA’s Head of Commercial Vehicle Sales, Duncan Ward, commented “This was a fabulous result with a record-breaking entry of commercial vehicles at BCA Blackbushe and a massive turnout of buyers who bid strongly across the range of stock on offer.  BCA offered well over 1,500 light commercials nationwide during the week, with big events also staged at Belle Vue and Measham making it one of the biggest weeks on record for LCV sales.”

He added “BCA is setting new standards for the light commercial sector.  No-one offers a better selection of good quality and affordable light commercial vehicles and locating stock is easy with BCA’s advanced online search engine.  Only BCA offers video appraisals and BCA Assured, supported by the AA, to give buyers even more confidence to bid.”
