Following a competitive pitch, the RAC has won a new three-year contract to provide specialist inspection services within the auction business of BCA, Europe’s largest vehicle remarketing and automotive services Group.
The deal, the largest of its kind in the UK, will see the RAC carry out pre-sale inspections on around 750,000 vehicles a year at BCA’s remarketing centres nationwide as part of the BCA Assured programme. The BCA Assured programme delivers a 30+ point independent pre-sale mechanical inspection on vehicles sold by BCA that is used as part on the online catalogue description.
BCA works with OEMs, fleet operators and dealers to provide the backbone of Europe’s automotive supply chain, remarketing nearly 1.5 million vehicles annually.
As well as providing a bespoke pre-sale auction inspections service, tailored to BCA’s needs, the RAC will be capturing additional vehicle data to provide BCA with a richer insight into the condition of vehicles that it handles. The RAC will also be looking at how the process of completing individual inspections can be made more efficient without compromising quality, to cope with the rising numbers of vehicles that BCA remarkets annually.
RAC business roadside director Phil Ryan said: “We’re confident we have a service that offers the scale and depth of experience that will bring significant benefits to the successful BCA Assured programme.”
BCA COO UK Remarketing, Stuart Pearson added “We look forward to working with the RAC to innovate and enhance the BCA Assured programme to deliver even more detailed and accurate reports for vendors and buyers alike.”
The contract between the RAC and BCA runs for three years from July 2020.
