New H.R. Owen sales programme makes successful start at BCA Blackbushe
The debut sale by H.R. Owen of high-end luxury vehicles at BCA Blackbushe on 15 March was a great success, attracting a large crowd of buyers both in the auction lanes and online to bid competitively.
With a superb selection of vehicles on offer the event saw 19 high value cars sold, for a 79% conversion that realised 101% of CAP Clean. BCA Live Online buyers were particularly active with 125 logging on throughout the sale.
The H.R. Owen sales will take place on alternate Wednesdays at Blackbushe as part of the regular Top Car event, with the next event on 29th March. Around 20 high value vehicles will be on offer in each sale, with all cars fully pre-sale prepared to retail standard.
BCA’s Major Account Manager, Suzanne Spencer commented “We were delighted with the result of this debut sale at Blackbushe for H.R. Owen, a brand synonymous with luxury, prestige and performance vehicles. A large crowd of buyers supported the event, both bidding in the hall and via BCA Live Online and the conversion and price performance figures were exceptionally strong.”
Mark Rose, H.R. Owen Head Buyer added “The pre-sale preparation and presentation by BCA was first class and the cars looked exceptional when they were offered for sale. The buying power supporting the event was notable, with confident bidding across the board up to and including cars valued in excess of six figures. We have had an exceptional result in this first sale and look forward to building on this with BCA going forward.”
