BCA to build new auction house in Birmingham

  • Two halls for up to 600 vehicles
  • Great place to grab a bargain
  • We advise that you attend viewing days

British Car Auctions, the UK’s largest vehicle auction company is to open a new auction house in Birmingham. The 20 acre site at Perry Barr, in the north of the city, is conveniently located just off the M6, and is hoped to be open by late next year.

The company originally applied for planning permission back in 2009, but the fall in demand for new and used vehicles meant that the project never went ahead. Now though, BCA are convinced that, with the rising values of used vehicles, a new site in Birmingham would be a worthwhile investment.

“As the new and used vehicle market expands, we are committed to investing for growth meeting our customers’ needs through continuous development of our remarketing services”, commented BCA managing director, Spencer Lock.

“BCA Perry Barr will continue our ambition to deliver first class facilities across our pan-European network and a wide range of channels to market, supported by comprehensive logistics capacity and integrated bespoke digital solutions.  All these components are aimed at delivering choice, service and value for money for all our customers.”

The new site at Perry Barr will enable BCA to extend its physical and digital remarketing offering and will deliver a range of de-fleet, inspection, appraisal, preparation, refurbishment and logistic services. 

Physical remarketing services will include two auction halls and undercover viewing for 600 vehicles, with both cars and light commercials offered in a regular programme of sales.  The additional acreage at Perry Barr will provide BCA with the space it requires to optimise its existing channels.

Auctions are a good place to find a van on a budget, but you must have a budget and vehicle set in your own mind before the bidding takes place. Auction houses often have open days before the auction, which we advise you to attend with a friend or family member with technical knowledge.
