You are more than welcome to bring along a mechanic or someone who knows about cars with you to inspect the car for you.

Make sure to pay attention to the vehicle grading (if there's one) and car history report which will be displayed on the car.

Position yourself where you can see the auctioneer and the cars as they drive through during the auction.

Once you bid successfully, go straight to the sales area, where our customer service staff will complete the sales paperwork. You might like to visit us once, before you intend to bid. This will help you familiarise yourself with the process.
