About Us

BOC Car Centre opened in Bolton in 1973

  • BOC Used Cars Advert 1984

Inspired by a visit to the Earls Court Motor show in the late 60's, one Mr Brindle senior returns to his home with an idea, to emulate what he had seen but instead of merely a space for manufacturers to show there latest models, his shows would be for independent dealers to display and sell highly prepared and high quality used cars to the general public.

Finding sites large enough to house the amount of vehicles he envisaged would make the venture viable was an issue, but in the end decided on three sites, one each in Bolton, Oldham, and Cleveleys hence BOC Car Shows.

Each of the sites had their display floors split into individual sales areas each licensed to a dealer, later sites on Hyde Road Manchester and St Helens were added. The idea was highly successful so much so that most of the dealers in the only remaining BOC Bolton have traded from BOC for decades. Over the years the Brindle family accepted offers for the other sites, Oldham is a Renault main dealership, Cleveleys was an Aldi for awhile, but Bolton which has served the local community and more recently much further a field, since 1973 was retained by a forward thinking company intent on bringing the show in it's entirety into the next 50 years. A much needed redevelopment has been recently completed, enabling our stock to be shown at it's finest, and a full roof of solar panelling enhancing our green credentials.

We are open 7 days a week and have a constantly changing stock 130 cars on site at any one time. Finance can be arranged with a selection of finance houses, extended warranties are available and your part exchange would be taken with pleasure. Bank cards are accepted. Some of the old ways stick, and there are no documentation fees, or "you have to take our finance" pressures.

We are very much the price you see, is the price you pay no sly extras that you don't want, or that you should expect in the sale anyway. As the old TV advert said, BOC, STILL better people to buy from!
