If your vehicle doesn’t sell, it will be entered into a timed auction. This is the customer's chance to bid on something they may have missed on Auction Day.
We aim to pay our vendors within 15 working days. If you have provided your bank details to the office, we will arrange a BACS transfer, or we will send a cheque in the post.
If you put a reserve on your vehicle and the bidding passed this figure, your vehicle will have sold. The results from the auction will be available after the auction on our website.
