Would you like to bid on vehicles at times which suit you?

Available exclusively to Trade Buyers, Bid Now gives you the opportunity to place bids in regular online fixed timed auctions at the click of a button, any time of day, wherever you are, directly within the BCA website. Once a vehicle has been opened for bids you can place a bid at any time until the bidding closing time has been reached. If at any point your bid has been outbid by another bidder we will send you an email notification where you will have the opportunity to increase your bid if the sale is still open. If you are successful in winning the vehicle we email you at the end of the sale and the invoice will then need paying. If the vehicle hasn’t met sale price the sale will go to a provisional status.The invoice will then be produced to make payment on the vehicle.

Key benefits with flexibility in mind

  • Bid Now enables you to benefit from an extended range of vehicles in a wider selection of locations including offsite. 
  • Regular sales throughout the week, often running over a weekend
  • You can place your bids 24 hours a day, 7 days a week as long as the vehicle is still live.
  • Enhanced appraisals and imagery helping you buy with confidence.
  • On each Bid Now vehicle you will be able to see when the sale start and end time/date giving you an exact window of time to bid on that vehicle.
  • Bidding is secure and offers you the flexibility to amend your bid should you get outbid.
  • Whether you are at your office, travelling or at home you can access and buy the vehicles you need at your own convenience.
