Proxy Bid.
Allows a bidder to leave a bid on a vehicle without being physically present. Bid up to your chosen maximum amount. You place a bid and enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay. When someone else places a bid our auction software will automatically enter the next lowest possible bid for you, up to your maximum bid. Therefore, the bidding system will attempt to execute your bid at the lowest price possible.

We set a fixed bid increment, the increment will not vary throughout the sale period of that vehicle – this is the value that bids are required in, bidding moves up in steps of this value.

At the end of auction, if you are the highest bidder you are the winner, this will mean that you have either purchased the vehicle or that it may be provisionally sold awaiting us to contact the vendor. We will then contact you once we have spoken to the vendor to submit the bid, the sale may be agreed or there may be further negotiation to secure the sale.
