BCA boost sales

Time 6:08 am, April 3, 2012

BCA has opened a second auction hall at its Measham Commercial Remarketing centre, doubling sales capacity.

The new purpose built facility includes a large undercover auction hall and rostrum with full Live Online and e-Auction capability, back office and vendor hospitality facilities.

Sales run in tandem, which means Measham now has the capacity to offer more than 500 light commercials through two lanes every sale day.

The official opening sale took place on March 27 and offered almost 400 vehicles, and featured stock from a number of a large contract hire, fleet and dealer groups including Lex Autolease, Alphabet, Lombard and Ford Retail. A strong turnout of buyers and plenty of Live Online activity saw more than 80 per cent of the entry sold for 100 per cent of CAP.

Alongside the weekly LCV sales, Measham will continue to stage fortnightly heavy commercial sales on every second Thursday and specialist monthly Plant & Equipment and Farm & Agricultural sales.

Centre manager, Dominic Burr, said: ‘Measham is one of the busiest Commercial Auction centres in the BCA network and we are all delighted with this new facility which gives us the capability of handling a much larger volume of vehicles every sale day.’

‘The work was completed right on schedule and we had great support from buyers and sellers alike for this first sale in the new auction hall.’
