13 April 2016 - Jardine and BCA stage biggest sale to date
95% conversion as over 400 cars are sold
Jardine has staged a record breaking sale in its exclusive remarketing partnership with BCA, with over 400 cars sold at the Bedford auction centre on Monday 11th April.
The sale offered 426 cars direct from Jardine dealerships nationwide and entered for sale via the exclusive BCA Dealer Pro service. Every car was pre-sale prepared and the majority were offered with BCA Assured. The well-promoted event attracted over 200 buyers to BCA Bedford with hundreds more participating via BCA Live Online.
The bidding was fast and furious throughout and resulted in 405 cars sold – a record volume for a Jardine sale and equivalent to a 95% conversion that realised just short of 100% of CAP Clean. Notable sellers included the 54-registered Porsche 911 3.8 Coupe that sold for £25,000.
Richard Hollis, Head of Used Car Development for Jardine Motors commented “BCA delivered massive buying power for this special, record-breaking sale with hundreds of buyers participating as the sale progressed. There was confident bidding throughout the event, underlining that the combination of attractive stock and an engaged buyer base generates exceptional results.”
He added “BCA’s Auction View and Live Online services generate substantial buying power, while BCA Dealer Pro helps us to streamline the processing of part-exchange appraisals and valuations, identifying which vehicles should be remarketed or retained for retail. It’s a winning combination that ensures the best returns for Jardine.”
BCA’s Major Account Manager (Dealer Groups) Suzanne Spencer commented “This was a record breaking sale event for the BCA and Jardine partnership. Jardine offered a superb selection of desirable retail quality stock and it proved irresistible to our buyers.”
