BCA to open first purpose built LCV remarketing centre
Work is continuing apace in Belle Vue, Manchester, where BCA is developing a new commercial vehicle remarketing centre on a 6.5 acre site adjacent to the existing 32 acre auction facility. The new centre is scheduled to open for business in Q3 2017.
This new facility will feature open plan auction lanes with undercover viewing for up to 400 vehicles and fully integrated Live Online support. It is the first purpose built remarketing facility dedicated to light commercial vehicles opened by BCA and underlines the company’s commitment to this important sector of the used vehicle market.
Duncan Ward, Commercial Vehicles Operations Director commented “BCA is handling increasing volumes of light commercial stock thanks to a number of significant vendor wins and business retentions in recent months. Sales of LCVs around the group were at record levels during 2016 and have climbed even higher since the turn of the year.”
“This new purpose-built facility boasts an excellent location with easy access for logistics and will handle large volumes of LCVs efficiently through the remarketing process. The pre-sale facilities onsite include a large preparation bay for valeting, trade name deletion and appraisal post-valet. Belle Vue Commercials will also offer self-contained digital imaging and video bays utilising AutosOnShow technology.”
Facilities include a fully online vendor suite, Live Online hotdesks for buyers, customer concourse featuring payments, accounts and provisional sales, and a cafeteria and barista kiosk.
Duncan Ward concluded “Belle Vue Commercials will be a vital link in BCA’s nationwide remarketing network and is ideally placed to serve businesses in the Northern powerhouse communities.”
