British Car Auctions (BCA)
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 interest until one bidder checked the number with HPI and found that there was outstanding finance on the caravan when it was sold by BCA. At the auction, especially if you are bidding on more than one caravan, there is no way of checking if there is outstanding finance on them. You trust the auction to be at least legally selling the item you are bidding on. After phoning BCA and being offered no help, my wife has had to spend, two weeks so far, phoning Black Horse Finance to try and sort the problem out. She has lost time and money, her caravan has reduced dramatically in value and she is out of pocket, thanks to BCA. The matter is still not resolved and the winning bidder has reduced his offer, even if the finance is sorted. So, all I can say is BUYER BEWARE, you might not legally own what you win at BRITISH CAR AUCTIONS and don't expect BCA to be very helpful when you report the problem to them.
