Buy in Italy

Buyer fees

When a vehicle is sold in auction, the buyer must pay fees depending to the type of vehicle and sale.

There are two main Buyer Fees scales:

Alphabet sales: All the vehicles will be invoiced from Alphabet directly. BCA fees are excluded from the selling price and will be invoiced separately for each vehicle.

In addition to Buyer Fees the following fees are applied:

  • Export fee: 230€
  • Live Online sales fee: 35€

All previously mentioned fees and fares apply singularly to each vehicle purchased.

In case of Special Sales, where different economic conditions apply, these are declared within the sale itself.

All foreign buyers, regardless whether they are located within or outside the EU, have to pay a VAT deposit (22% of the invoice value) for VAT Qualifying vehicles, unless transport is organised by BCA. The VAT deposit will be refunded upon receipt of legitimate proof of the arrival of the vehicle at final destination (CMR for EU buyers, MRN for non EU buyers).

Parking Fees

The Export Tax includes 15 parking calendar days, starting from the sending of the pickup authorization. After this period of time a parking fee is due:

  • 5€ per each calendar day for cars
  • 10€ per each calendar day for LCV, HGV and not running/not rolling vhls

This amount has to be payed prior the vehicle can exit the compound.

Invoice and Payment

BCA Italy send you the invoice within 24 hours after the purchase.

You will receive the invoice on your email address.

The invoice will include the bidding price, de-registration tax and the buyer fees.

If the Vat of the vehicle is Qualifying Gross, the customer will have to pay the Deposit Agreement which will be refunded after BCA will receive the original CMR/MNR.


Please note that, from the day you receive the invoice, you will have 2 working days to pay for it (through bank transfer).

Collect your vehicle

Once the payment has been made and the vendor has released the collection authorization to BCA (each vendor has different timing to send the pick up order, min. 3 working day and max 15), you will receive a release document which states the address of the compound where your vehicle is located. At this point, you must arrange pick-up through a third-party transport company (self-pick-up is not allowed).

Please note that, from the day you won the car, you have 15 calendar day to collect the vehicles from our compound.

Any extra day will be invoiced 5€ per day per vehicle, and € 10 per LCV or HGV,
