TC Harrison Ford and BCA (British Car Auctions) have agreed a two-year exclusive remarketing deal.
The deal will see around 3,500 vehicles a year sold in weekly sales in Derby and Peterborough. TC Harrison vehicles are offered with a BCA Assured report, and the majority of vehicles have the V5 and service history present and are provided with a warranted mileage.
TC Harrison Ford is part of one of the country’s largest privately owned motor groups, with around 400 employees at seven locations, producing an annual turnover of around £200m.
Chris Cornell, chief executive officer of TC Harrison Ford said: “BCA consistently performs at the top of the market and demonstrates a genuine commitment to deliver innovative and effective remarketing solutions. The blended approach of online and physical auctions delivers exceptional buying power for our vehicles, ensuring a swift churn of stock with strong market values.”
BCA is supporting the sales programme with a strategic marketing campaign that includes branded e-marketing and online awareness through BCA’s website and Auction View bulletins.
BCA’s dealer sales director Dave Burden said: “We are delighted to agree this exclusive two-year remarketing programme with TC Harrison, a highly successful family business that has grown through a consistent focus on great service. The TC Harrison sales programme at BCA Derby and Peterborough offers a great selection of well-presented vehicles and is generating a loyal following from buyers.”
From the dock to defleet, BCA handles over 3.5m vehicles a year, working with OEMs, fleet operators and dealers. In July BCA Marketplace’s share price rose sharply following a £1.6bn bid to acquire the company, which BCA subsequently turned down.
