BCA launched a new digital sales programme yesterday under the BCA 5 to 9 brand.
It features vehicles selected daily from the company’s 19 remarketing centres nationwide and offered exclusively in an overnight online sale via BCA's website.
Sales start at 5pm every day, giving buyers the opportunity to review and buy vehicles at a time to suit them, with the sales programme closing at 9.00 am the following morning.
All vehicles on BCA 5 to 9 are offered with a fixed price and a simple ‘click to buy’ process, making it a great way to access new stock every night.
BCA data shows that most professional buyers research the stock they want to buy via BCA Auction View in the evening and the new 5 to 9 platform means they can buy as they browse.
The new digital sales platform dovetails seamlessly with BCA’s existing programme of physical, Live Online, Bid Now, Buy Now and e-Auction sales, meaning buyers at BCA can fulfil their sourcing requirements across a range of remarketing platforms at a time that suits their needs.
BCA has signed up 25 major vendors to the 5 to 9 sales programme, with new seller customers being added daily.
BCA will offer several hundred vehicles in each overnight 5 to 9 sale, with a high turnover of stock and including vehicles fresh to the market, and it said it will work closely with sellers to ensure vehicles entered in the 5 to 9 sales programme are valued realistically to sell.
UK operations director Simon Henstock said: “Sourcing good retail stock has been a real challenge for professional buyers in recent months and anecdotally many dealers have told us they have struggled to maintain an adequate supply of vehicles to meet the needs of their retail customers.
"With the signs of economic recovery now having a very positive effect on both new and used car sales, dealers will welcome this access to a fresh supply of good quality, attractive stock on a daily basis.
"Our customers tell us they want to buy and sell used vehicles online 24/7, 365 days a year to gain an edge in an increasingly competitive marketplace and BCA 5 to 9 is another innovative way that we are making it easier for our customers to do just that.”
