Appraisal Guidelines

BCA has partnered with qualified consultants with proven experience in vehicle appraising created comprehensive appraisal guidelines which clearly and fully explain the method used to inspect used vehicles describing a uniform procedure and a detailed evaluation system which is essential to buyers and vendors alike.

Thanks to our appraisal guidelines, vendors and buyers can clearly understand which vehicle imperfections are considered relevat and therefore reported on the condition report — equally which imperfections will not be reported and considered irrelevant to the report.

The Appraisal Guidelines are free for you!

Vehicle grading

Clear vehicle grading

BCA Vehicle Grades have been introduced so that you can assess individual vehicle condition quickly. For more information on BCA Vehicle Grades click here.

Separate internal and external reports

The report includes kipper charts for both the external and internal condition of the vehicles to help you easily identify and locate on the vehicle any damage or work required.

Vehicle damage listed in order of severity

Any damage that is identified is displayed in vehicle area, and is now listed clearly in order of severity, making it easier to view work that is required, most important first, and make a judgement quickly. Furthermore damage detail is now available on BCA e-sales vehicle pages and can also be printed out and viewed a PDF.

Improved HD photography

Exterior vehicle damage is photographed, listed and indexed on the kipper diagram so you can easily locate the key areas of damage. Just hover over the area of damage with the orange drop symbol to view the imagery. The HD photograph gives a much improved image allowing you to view and assess the vehicle with greater confidence.
