BCA has announced the start of a “major development” programme at its Nottingham remarketing and defleet centre with a new auction lane complex.
BCA has said that the development, which commenced immediately after Easter, will add significantly to the facility’s volume and throughput.
Features include two back-to-back auction lanes with a central Barista bar, with an opening due in autumn of this year.
To coincide with the anticipated increased throughput, BCA Nottingham will introduce a new enhanced sales programme, featuring additional sale events and specialist auctions.
BCA’s managing director of UK remarketing, Stuart Pearson, said: “The all-new building featuring dual back-to-back auction lanes will offer buyers an improved customer experience and an even bigger choice of stock.
"Our vendor customers will enjoy more opportunities to sell their stock more frequently to the UK’s biggest buyer base.”
With capacity for 500 vehicles undercover, BCA Nottingham will sell up to five days a week on completion of the new development.
In response to news that Brits will be “staycationing”, the Nottingham site will also be staging its “biggest ever” sale on April 12, with over 100 motorhomes and caravans on offer.
BCA spokesman Tim Naylor said: “With recent reports suggesting that many families are considering staying in the UK and taking short breaks this year, it suggests that many see a caravan or motorhome as a good value investment for this year’s holiday and for the years ahead.”
The sale will include a selection from vehicles from Black Horse and WeBuyAnyLeisureVehicle.com.
Naylor said: “This next sale offers a wide selection of vehicles to suit every budget and all are welcome to attend and bid. Log onto BCA’s website to see a full catalogue of the entry, with many vehicles offered with a BCA Assured mechanical report carried out by the AA.”
