British Car Auctions (BCA) has kicked off a new dedicated van sale on Fridays at its Glasgow site.
The weekly sale at Royston Road starts at 10am, and BCA said there will be up to 200 vans going before the auctioneer from blue chip vendors like UK Car Group Remarketing, Lex Autolease, Black Horse, Arnold Clark Contract Hire, Royal Mail, Police and local authorities.
Duncan Ward, BCA’s general manager CVs, said the new sale is proving very popular with buyers with a broad selection of stock on offer. “With the on-going shortage of used vans, this sale offers everything from car-sized vans, to short, medium and long-wheel base panel vans, 4x4 pick-ups, tippers, fridge vans and mini-buses to meet the needs of buyers,” he said.
Buyers have been positive about the dedicated sale day for commercial vehicles and the quality of vans on offer, he explained. “We have also seen a major upsurge in online bidding for commercial vehicles via BCA Live Online at Glasgow, both from local Scottish buyers and from much further afield,” he said.
