BCA to open van auction centre in Manchester

BCA is building its first dedicated light commercial vehicle auction centre on a site adjacent to its existing 32-acre premises in Belle Vue, Manchester.

The 6.5-acre facility, scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2017, will feature live online bidding and include open plan auction lanes with undercover viewing for up to 400 vehicles.

Duncan Ward, commercial vehicles operations director at BCA, said the development underlines the company’s commitment to the used van market.

“BCA is handling increasing volumes of light commercial stock thanks to a number of significant vendor wins and business retentions in recent months,” he added. “Sales of LCVs around the group were at record levels during 2016 and have climbed even higher since the turn of the year.”
