Auction firm BCA has announced the development of a new 65-acre ‘mega-centre’ in Bristol.
It says the new facility, located near Junction 18 of the M5, will be a full online remarketing centre capable of handling more than 120,000 vehicles each year.
It will operate 24/7, delivering a full range of BCA’s services, including defleet and logistics, cosmetic and mechanical preparation, vehicle remarketing, imaging, and retail-ready preparation.
BCA says the facility will also use its advanced decision intelligence services to optimise remarketing channel selection and refurbishment opportunities for customers.
BCA COO for UK remarketing Stuart Pearson said: “BCA’s new 65-acre development in Bristol will create a new standard within the industry, utilising the latest digital technology to deliver a range of multi-channel remarketing, logistics and technical automotive services to meet the needs of our customers.
“The new centre, with the capacity to store over 10,000 vehicles on the ground at any one time, forms a strategic part of our growth plans and delivers on our stated intent of driving further efficiencies for our customers across the used vehicle supply chain.
“BCA is handling growing volumes of stock from both new and existing customers across the range of services the group offers. Additional capacity such as this new facility in Bristol is critical to bringing liquidity, efficiency and choice to the automotive sector.”
