Our auctioneers are skilled at recognising bids from their audience, but it is your responsibility to be seen so please make your bidding intentions clear and precise.
You must register to bid to be able to bid, please go to office.
Successful bidding, once the hammer has fallen and you are the highest bidder, you have entered into a legal contract to complete the purchase of the vehicle and there will be no opportunity for you to change your mind.
On the fall of the hammer or the completion of a provisional sale, the vehicles become the responsibly of the purchaser and therefore it is in your own interest to pay for and insure it as soon as possible. Vehicles are left on the premises at your own risk.
You will be required to pay a cash deposit, either to the auction office with your ID or to the Rostrum Clerk if you are the highest bidder.
At the time of bidding the Rostrum Clerk will confirm if the car has been purchased outright or if the bid is 'Provisional'.
The term 'Provisional' means your bid has not reached the Reserve Price set by the Seller. Once we have received your deposit, we will negotiate with the Seller on your behalf and attempt to reach an agreement on a final sale price. There are times that the Vendor of vehicles may not be available and negotiations will have to take place the following day.
If an agreement cannot be reached and you choose not to increase your bid, you are able to then bid on another vehicle.
Full settlement of your purchase must be made within 3 working days of the auction.
You can settle your balance by Cash, Debit Card or Bank transfer. We do not accept payments over the phone, the cardholder must be present. There are transaction fees associated with some of these forms of payment. Please check with the auction office. If you have a NextGear Capital Stocking Plan, you can pay via this method.
Anti/Money Laundering Legislation prohibits us taking cash payments in excess of £9,000. Maximum cash payments apply, cash payments will incur a surcharge of 1%.
You will need to provide valid photographic ID (UK Passport or Driving Licence) when purchasing a vehicle through our auctions if you do not have an account with us.
A Buyer Fee will be added to the vehicle price. Please ask a member of the auction staff for details.
Once full payment has been made, we will release all of the vehicle documents and key(s) to you.
It is your responsibility to notify DVLA of a change of ownership.
All vehicles must be promptly removed, daily storage charges apply after 6 working days from purchase of £3.00 per day.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your new vehicle is road worthy and complies with the Road Traffic Act before it leaves the auction centre.
All vehicles are sold in accordance with our General Conditions of Auction, copies of which are displayed throughout our centres. Please read these carefully before you decide to bid and buy. If you are uncertain, please ask a member of staff who will be pleased to help.
