BCA announces expansion plans for Scottish business

Time 9:40 am, October 23, 2018

BCA HAS announced ambitious plans to expand its Scottish operations as business grows north of the border. 

Enhanced sales programmes have been introduced in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Livingstone and Kinross to manage additional volume and BCA has confirmed that plans are in hand for the construction of an additional remarketing facility in Glasgow next year.

Phase one of the programme has seen the current Glasgow Remarketing Centre become a specialist commercial vehicle centre. It now stages auctions for both light and heavy commercial vehicles with sales taking place every Tuesday and Friday. Record levels of activity were reported during September.

Stuart Pearson, chief operating officer of BCA’s UK remarketing operation, said: ‘BCA Glasgow has been operating at near-capacity as BCA continues to win additional car and commercial vehicle business in Scotland.

‘The establishment of a dedicated commercial vehicle centre allows us to optimise the sales programme and provide our commercial vehicle customers with more opportunity to buy or sell stock every week.’

Pearson added: ‘The changes in Glasgow allow us to enhance our programme of car sales in Edinburgh, Livingstone and Kinross offering a wide selection of dealer, fleet, finance and lease stock every day of the week.

‘It’s now easier for our customers to locate the stock they want, with more choice available for them whether bidding online or in-lane.

‘Another significant enhancement to our Scottish sales programme was achieved with the signing of the exclusive remarketing partnership with Taggarts, part of the Lookers Group. BCA now offers more than 500 premium high- quality cars direct from Taggarts in the new Wednesday mega-sale at BCA Livingstone.’
