BCA Christmas sales up 25%

BCA has reported that its festive programme of online sales attracted over 2,500 different buyers and sold nearly 25% more than the same week year-on-year.

There was particularly strong buyer activity for used vans, with over 400 different LCV buyers purchasing between Christmas and New Year, underlining the ongoing desirability of LCV product and the demand for vehicles to service the online shopping and home delivery sectors.

Stuart Pearson, BCA COO UK, said: “The results show that a number of our buyer customers appreciated the opportunity to purchase vehicles throughout the festive period, replenishing stock and getting prepared for what we all hope is a buoyant market in 2022.

“With the ongoing pressure on new vehicle supply, there is every expectation that used vehicle values will remain resilient and we’re seeing signs of demand warming up this week as many customers and retail consumers return from what has been an extended break.”
