Former SMA centre in Wolverhampton reopens under BCA

Now officially open for business, BCA Wolverhampton is the second SMA centre to be rebranded following BCA’s acquisition of the firm last year.

The centre is located on the outskirts of Bilston and offers two auction lanes and undercover viewing for 300 vehicles. The centre is managed by Jim Wilson, who has been with BCA for nearly 30 years and formerly managed BCA’s Walsall and Birmingham centres.

Business at the new centre opened on Monday 11 April with the first in a new programme of LCV sales featuring a selection of stock from Lex Autolease, UKCGR Commercial, Activa Contracts, Peugeot UK, Hertz, Van Monster Multi-Vendor and more. A strong turnout of buyers saw an excellent conversion on the day, with plenty of activity from Live Online buyers.

BCA Wolverhampton holds auctions every Monday (LCV and General Sale), Wednesday (General Sale) and Friday (Fleet Sale).

BCA operations director Stuart Pearson commented: “BCA Wolverhampton is a superb modern remarketing facility that will play a key role in the expanded BCA network. The opening sales have been very well attended, with plenty of activity from BCA Live Online buyers, generating high conversion rates and strong price performance. Congratulations to manager Jim Wilson and the team at BCA Wolverhampton for ensuring these opening sale events under the BCA brand have been so successful.”

Official launch events will also take place for BCA in Kinross and Livingston over the coming weeks.
