British Car Auctions (BCA) Date: 07/11/11 Rating: Very Poor Advantages: No advantage over buying on Ebay, in fact you would probably get a better deal on the Internet.

They've removed the tax disc and with it the tax disc holder (magnetic one). I can't say I am impressed with how they handle other's... (read more)

Then ask BCA staff working in the saleroom.
BCA's are a massive, slick, operation but will give you every assistance if you... (read more)

For a first time experience of the auction environment I was pleasantly shocked at the fantastic range of cars and the professionalism of the staff at BritishCarAuction.com - with auction companies having an "arther daily" reputation, I wasn't particuallarly keen to get a car in this way when I had been used to buying from dealerships.
The staff were very friendly and explained the jargon talk (not that there was much), provided me with a full listings of cars by email (no other company... (read more)
