    Help with BCA

    I am soon to buy a car, and I was wondering how cheap the cars are at car auctions?
    The closest one to be would be blackbushe or wimbldon

    Say if I was to buy a vauxhall corsa 2005 3dr
    @ a BCA, how much would this roughly be...I know someone will prob say we need more spec...but i just want a ROUGH price

    i personally dont think the car auctions are as cheap as they used to be , try autotrader, ebay , local classifieds but always get a hpi report , take someone whos good with cars , private buys are usually good as are well known garages but beware of the backstreet cut n shut garages , good luck
    remember if its too good to be true it usually is

    Also another point,

    I bought a ford fiesta at bca for £475, but what i didn't know was they would charge me over £200 in fees and vat and what not,

    so please also take this into account, the more expensive the car the more you will have to pay top

    675 is still cheap

    Agree with both of the above :thumbsup: private buyers do get stung severely with buyers premium, whereas account holders pay a minimal fee.

    £3000.00 hammer price approx £350.00 buyers premium.

    Having said that there are still bargains to be had, however you need to set aside possibly 3 visits x 5hrs + each time then you might pick something up worthwhile.

    PS... also be careful your not bidding / buying a car from the guy bidding next to you lol

    no it was a old one not perfect by any means, not worth £675 plus had stuff wrong with it that we didn't know off, as you can't test drive the car

    Best thing to do is have a search on Auto trader for the right spec of car you want and see what they are charging.
    Based on the average price, you might be looking at around £500 - £1000 less at auction but then you have to include the fee's, VAT and of course what you see is what you get.
