BCA staged online sales every day between December 27 and December 31 before resuming a normal timetable January 2.

A range of fresh-to-the-market stock was also available online 24/7 over the Festive period via BCA Buy Now with new stock frequently added.

There was particularly strong buyer activity for used vans, with over 400 different LCV buyers purchasing between Christmas and New Year, underlining the on-going desirability of LCV product and the demand for vehicles to service the online shopping and home delivery sectors.

Stuart Pearson, BCA COO UK said: ‘The results show that a number of our buyer customers appreciated the opportunity to purchase vehicles throughout the festive period, replenishing stock and getting prepared for what we all hope is a buoyant market in 2022.

‘With the ongoing pressure on new vehicle supply, there is every expectation that used vehicle values will remain resilient and we’re seeing signs of demand warming up this week.

‘Many customers and retail consumers are now returning from what has been an extended break.’
