Caravans and motorhomes to<br>go under the hammer

AUCTION giant BCA is hosting a caravan and motorhome sale at their Measham site in Derbyshire on Friday (August 10).

Sales are held every month at the site and typically each one will feature about 75 units.

The company have noted a growing fondness for caravanning due in part to increased interest in music festivals and better awareness of the environmental impact of flying abroad.

BCA spokesman Tim Naylor said: “Caravanning offers a great value holiday solution for anyone wanting to get away.

“We see buyers coming from far and wide to our dedicated caravan and motorhome sales.”

The age and specification of the vehicles will vary from sale to sale, but regularly include up to six-berth caravans, both single and twin axle, and a broad range of motorhomes from two-berth upwards.  
The various makes and models on offer will often include ABI, Abbey, Lunar, Arundale, Bessecar, Elddis, Swift and coachbuilt motorhomes from a variety of manufacturers. 

Vehicles are entered for sale by finance and leasing companies, dealers and private owners.
Viewing starts at 9am with the sale starting at 2pm.

The company has also issued some top tips on getting a good deal on a caravan or motorhome at auction.
They are:
* Do your homework – make sure you know what to look for in the caravan you want to buy. If you’re not sure, then bring someone with you who is.

* Set yourself a price limit and stick to it.  If the bidding exceeds that figure, walk away. Leave part of your budget for any minor repairs that may need doing and a thorough service. 

* Do not impulse buy – particularly if you are new to caravanning. Your lack of experience will inevitably let you down.

* Remember all caravans and motorhomes are sold as seen so use the viewing time wisely. Check inside and out as carefully as you can.

* Always review the sale day catalogue carefully – there might be some interesting late entries you have missed.
