BCA & VWFS combine for record-breaking event

1,100 vehicles sold on one day

BCA staged a record sale at the Perry Barr remarketing centre on 21st January as 1,100 vehicles were sold on behalf of Volkswagen Financial Services UK (VWFS).

The sale featured Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT and ŠKODA product offered in three auction lanes.  The event attracted a huge audience of buyers with over 100 buyers registered to bid in-lane, and nearly 800 different buyers bidding via the BCA Buyer app and BCA Live Online.

With competitive bidding from physical and online buyers throughout the day, the event sold 1,100 vehicles.  With an entry 1,105 vehicles this was equivalent to a 99.5% conversion and an average value of 98.6% of CAP Clean. 

Underlining the demand from buyers, sales proceeds exceeded £17.2 million with an average selling price of nearly £15,600 – both records for a VWFS sale.

Dominic Burr, BCA Regional General Manager commented; “This was a record breaking sale event for the BCA and VWFS partnership, with over 1,100 vehicles offered for physical sale from one seller on one day.  VWFS offered a superb selection of desirable retail quality stock and it proved irresistible to our buyers.”

BCA is staging another VWFS sale at the Perry Barr centre on 18th February with around 1,200 vehicles consigned for the event.
