International Vehicle Remarketing
The Group’s International Vehicle Remarketing division operates primarily across nine countries throughout Europe at 28 auction centres with operations in Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Sweden.
Distinct to the UK market, European customers have a higher propensity to trade at online auctions both in a single country and between operating markets and to buy vehicles to export to countries including Austria, Belgium, Poland, Romania and Serbia.
In the UK, the Group’s Vehicle Buying division operates from over 200 locations as We Buy Any Car and in Europe as CarTrade2B. We Buy Any Car is the UK’s leading car buying service, now established as the third disposal channel for consumers. Used vehicles purchased directly from the public by We Buy Any Car are disposed of exclusively through the BCA Exchange.
CarTrade2B was successfully trialled in Germany and similar projects have now been initiated in the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden. These businesses focus upon buying batches of vehicles direct from corporate entities and remarketing them through the International Vehicle Remarketing division.
