BCA has confirmed plans for an additional Glasgow-based remarketing facility amid an “ambitious” Scottish operations expansion.
Enhanced sales programmes have been introduced in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Livingstone and Kinross to manage additional volume, alongside the construction of an additional remarketing facility in Glasgow next year.
Phase one of the programme has seen the current Glasgow Remarketing Centre become a specialist Commercial Vehicle Centre.
BCA’s chief operating officer UK Remarketing, Stuart Pearson, said: “BCA Glasgow has been operating at near capacity as BCA continues to win additional car and commercial vehicle business in Scotland.
"The establishment of a dedicated Commercial Vehicle Centre allows us to optimise the sales programme and provide our commercial vehicle customers with more opportunity to buy or sell stock every week.”
The centre now stages auctions for both light and heavy commercial vehicles with sales taking place every Tuesday and Friday, with record levels of activity reported during September.
Pearson said: “The changes in Glasgow allow us to enhance our programme of car sales in Edinburgh, Livingstone and Kinross offering a wide selection of dealer, fleet, finance and lease stock every day of the week.
"It’s now easier for our customers to locate the stock they want, with more choice available for them whether bidding online or in-lane.
“Another significant enhancement to our Scottish sales programme was achieved with the signing of the exclusive remarketing partnership with Taggarts, part of the Lookers Group. BCA now offer over 500 premium high quality cars direct from Taggarts in the new Wednesday mega-sale at BCA Livingstone.
“BCA is investing to ensure that we offer the best facilities to support the significant growth opportunity that exists in the Scottish market.
"The new centre in Glasgow forms only part of our plans and we expect to further expand our estate to ensure that BCA is there to support our customers every step of the way.”
