I have been in the motor trade for near on 27 years, back in the good old days of the Escort XR3i and Fiesta Xr2. back then cars where a lot cheaper at the auctions as not many people either knew about actions or didn't have the confidence to buy from them. Lets face it, we all want a bargain, especially when it comes to cars. We have all done it, bought a car cheap only to end up spending loads more fixing all the faults and wishing we had spent a bit more and got a better one. I have... (read more)

Went to the auctions and bought a car for my son who had just passed his test. The 'W' reg Fiesta seemed like a good buy at £650. When I went to pay, once the "buyers premium' and document transfer fees were added, the cost was £919!! Even the staff were embarrassed about the fees. (read more)

Once you buy a car at BCA you are done. After sale enquiry is terrible, don't think about customer service. All the departments are managed by unprofesional people, they cover for each other, so no point to complaint. simply do not buy at BCA. (read more)

Its a sad thing to watch this company go down hill so very quickly. The staff are so poorly trained towards customer care and have no empathy for a customer when things go wrong. The 1 star and terrible rating is not sufficient really for just how bad things are. (read more)

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. Disadvantages: You may not own what you buy at British Car Auctions. My wife went to Measham car auctions caravan sale, she looked at several caravans, bid on two or three and bought one. A year later she wanted to upgrade so put her caravan on Ebay, with all the details including the CHRiS number. There was a lot of... (read more)

Tried to sell my car with BCA.
While it is not their fault that it didn't sell, it is their fault how they handled my paper work. I had to remove 9 !!! staples from my V5 and service booklet. All of them were pristine beforehand. They have written on the outside of the service booklet, not only the number plate but also an internal code. Book looks not tatty. 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)

Although British Car Auction auctions are geared towards dealers (and more than 90% of the bidders appear to fall into this category) private buyers are made most welcome. However hide your copy of 'Parker's Price Guide' (or whatever) otherwise dealers will quickly recognise you as being a private buyer and may bid up the price purely out of spite. Don't believe me? 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)
