JCT signs remarket deal with BCA
JCT 600, which operates more than 50 outlets in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, east Midlands and the north east, has signed an exclusive two-year agreement with BCA to remarket its used cars and LCVs.
As part of the deal, BCA will begin a regular programme of sales for JCT 600 at BCA Brighouse every Tuesday and Thursday and at BCA Leeds five days a week. All JCT 600 vehicles will be pre-sale imaged and catalogued on BCA Auction View and available to BCA Live Online bidders.
All vehicles will be pre-sale prepared by BCA and will be offered under the BCA Assured scheme, which means they’ve been mechanically tested by the AA.
John Tordoff, Chief Executive JCT 600, said, ‘It goes without saying that BCA delivers a comprehensive remarketing programme, a substantial range of value-added services and the very best facilities, but as importantly there is a shared vision to be the best and deliver a high quality service to benefit our customers.
‘We are confident that BCA will remarket our non-retail part-exchange vehicles quickly and efficiently while generating the best returns, and we are also sure that BCA will represent our brand values effectively within the wholesale sector.’
BCA will provide full marketing support with e-marketing and online campaigns, while also raising awareness with posters and point of sale material.
BCA sales director Craig Purvey said, ‘This deal will deliver a substantial range of attractive cars and commercial vehicles for our buyers at BCA. JCT 600 will offer a superb selection of vehicles at BCA Brighouse and BCA Leeds and we are delighted that after a rigorous tender process, BCA has been awarded an exclusive two-year remarketing partnership with the Group.’
Meanwhile, BCA has announced that Dominic Burr will be general manager of a new 20-acre multi-channel remarketing and logistics facility at Perry Bar, Birmingham. The new site will deliver a range of de-fleet, inspection, preparation, refurbishment, appraisal post-valet and logistics services. Remarketing facilities will include three auction halls and a digital auction suite.
Stuart Pearson, BCA operations director, said, ‘Dominic will take a central role in creating a strategic sales programme for Perry Barr and building the team that will run the most modern remarketing centre in Europe.’
