Auctions run from Monday to Saturday and auction stock is constantly being updated. It’s best to check at least twice a day to make sure that you stay on top of what’s available. Look at the auctions and send us the Auction Lot number of interesting units. We'll screen them and delete any problem cars. Good ones We'll translate the condition report into English and upload them to your account for bidding.
You can read over the reports and if you want to bid you enter your bid, which is the maximum that you want to bid on the car. We will then bid for you, up to that amount if necessary. If the car sells for less then you pay that lesser amount. If the bidding goes over your budget we stop and move onto your next target and you pay nothing.
Once you win an auction we pay for the car in full and issue you an invoice for the balance. As soon as we receive full payment, we ship the car.
