Convertible Assets at BCA Brighouse


Lex Autolease and Black Horse offered 319 convertibles at BCA Brighouse on Wednesday 28th April and sold 309 for a 97% conversion that generated a turnover of £3.6 million.

The sale was the third ‘beach-themed’ convertible event held by BCA and attracted over 200 buyers to the Brighouse auction centre, with a further 100 dealers bidding via the internet using BCA’s Live Online service.

With a broad selection ranging in value from under £4,000 to over £30,000, bidding was brisk from the first to the last car – private buyers and dealers bid strongly throughout the sale, which achieved 100% of CAP Clean across the board.

Over the three sales, BCA and Lex Autolease combined to sell over 800 convertibles for over £10 million.
