The auction halls of British Car Auction’s Blackbushe site were packed on the first working day of the new year as sales kicked off.
The January 2 event – the first of company’s ‘Fast Start’ campaign – attracted more than 1,000 optimistic buyers who competed for hundreds of cars.
‘Our Fast-Start programme ensures we are ready to meet demands of buyers with a great selection of stock from our corporate sellers on the very first trading day of the year,’ said a spokesman for BCA.
Hopefully, this positive picture is a sign that things might pick up in the used car market in 2009… well, we can live in hope.
