About British Car Auctions
British Car Auctions Ltd began trading as Southern Counties Car Auctions in Farnham, Surrey in 1946. Over the years the company has grown from a concern that sold 14 cars at its first auction into a thriving business that sells up 12,000 vehicles per week in live and online auctions. British Car Auctions is now part of the BCA Europe group, the largest used vehicle sales business in Europe. The company was one of the first in Europe to offer its customers a complete range of cars that ranged from from budget vehicles to luxury cars, and it has up to 10,000 cars available for sale at any given time which gives great results.
A comprehensive range of services for sellers and buyers
British Car Auction hosts regular live sales as well as a range of ongoing online events, and sellers can opt to sell one car or an entire fleet of vehicles. As well as private cars, the company regularly sells ex-driving school vehicles and commercial vehicles including buses and vans. Sellers are able to reach a wider pool of buyers thanks to British Car Auctions online portal, and a 'Sure Sale' feature ensures that their vehicle will be sold. British Car Auctions offers the biggest selection of used cars in the UK, and buyers can either visit one of the company's auction centres or buy online. Live sales take place in the company's 19 UK auction centres which are located in various cities such as London, Manchester, Edinburgh or Birmingham. Results are later published online.
