BCA wins Auction House of the Year in inaugural 2019 Motor Trader Independent Dealer Awards
BCA have been announced as the 2019 winners of Auction House of the Year in the inaugural Motor Trader Independent Dealer Awards. The awards were revealed at a glittering ceremony staged at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on 9th October.
The Motor Trader Independent Dealer Awards pay tribute to those companies and individuals who are able to demonstrate excellence in used car retailing, offering class-leading customer service and innovation. Motor Trader enlisted the expertise of a panel of judges to assess used car retailers in each of the categories. The Auction House of the Year Award was voted for by dealers and readers of Motor Trader magazine and Motor Trader.com.
“This year in the inaugural Motor Trader Independent Dealer Awards, dealers were asked to vote for their favourite auction house in a poll on Motortrader.com. It was a great success and we received over 1,000 responses. When the poll closed BCA emerged as the clear winner. Congratulations to BCA on their success,” said Motor Trader editor John Kirwan.
BCA’s Chief Commercial Officer Craig Purvey commented, “We are delighted to have won this significant industry award from Motor Trader magazine. The recognition is very welcome and reflects well on everybody in the BCA family who work tirelessly to deliver an unrivalled level of service to our customers, day in and day out. Most importantly, this award was voted for by dealers and underlines BCA’s drive to put the customer at the heart of our business.”
He added “The UK independent dealer sector is hugely innovative and professional and BCA works closely with operators to deliver a range of specialist services to help them compete in this fast moving and rapidly evolving remarketing sector.”
These services include BCA Partner Finance, which offers dealers of all sizes up to 120 days funding on vehicles purchased at BCA auction centres, the Dealer Pro app which makes the part-exchange appraisal even more accessible for dealers, and the BCA Buyer app which helps customers research, locate and bid on the vehicles they need while on the move.
