Buy Now

If you are a trade buyer, and eligible to buy online, Buy Now means you can purchase vehicles immediately at the Buy Now price - enabling you to source specific stock at any time.

Stock offered in Buy Now sales is a mix of fresh vehicles and some that may have previously been offered at auction.

Within the web site, Buy Now sales are indicated by the blue pound sign (shown above).

As you search and view vehicles you will discover a selection of used vehicles direct from our leading vendors that you can buy immediately. The vehicle details will indicate the sale end date and time. 

A selection of Buy Now vehicles is available to view and buy 24/7 - the sales are frequently updated, so check back regularly. Once purchased, a vehicle disappears from the sale.

Shortly after purchase you will receive an email confirming your purchase.

As well as being available for instant purchase, some vehicles will also have a Bid Now option enabling you to have more choice about how you buy.

Buy Now also enables you to benefit from an extended range of vehicles, many of which are fresh stock, in a wider selection of locations.   Auction View presents each off site vehicle with further information regarding delivery, which may take slightly longer than vehicles that are on site at BCA.

What does it cost?

When you purchase a vehicle online there is an additional online buyers’ fee. (these fees are subject to change)

If the vehicle is listed as onsite at a BCA Branch then the fees are:

  • Normal buyers fee charged at your MyBCA card colour rate
  • Online fee of £44.00 + VAT

If the vehicle is listed as BCA Offsite (excluding e-Auctions) then the fees are:
