How auctions work

Selling your damaged car?

It’s becoming clear that more and more people are becoming interested in buying or selling their vehicles through an auction. So, what exactly is a car auction?

Car auctions that deal specifically with vehicles of all shapes and sizes work in a very similar way to an auction for any other product for sale. Car auctions can be either online or in-person events where a group of people looking to buy or sell vehicles come together and bid on how much they are willing to pay for them. Vehicles are listed with a starting price and people place bids on how much they are willing to pay for them. The person with the highest bid wins and earns the right to buy it for the highest bid price.

There is a distinction between public auctions and closed auctions. Public auctions are, naturally, open to the public. At these auctions you can find a wide variety of different makes, models and ages. Typically, prospective buyers at public auctions will be able to view, examine and ask questions about vehicles before the auction begins to familiarise themselves with the vehicle they are interested in buying. The rules for auctions are straightforward and easy to understand. If you find a car you’re interested in buying, all you need to do is place the highest bid during the auction process, pay the specified amount and then enjoy your new vehicle!

How to sell your damaged Car

Selling your damaged car?

Our dedication to full transparency is our way of providing you with complete peace of mind. Here’s a detailed breakdown of our process.

The car selling process begins when you load your details onto our site. We require information around your specific vehicle’s specifications as well as the extent to which your vehicle is damaged. Alongside information on your car, we need you to provide your personal information in order for one of our consultants to contact you and assist you through the rest of the process.

After your information has been provided, one of our consultants will then call you and send you a WhatsApp with further requirements. After a line of communication has been established and the relevant information has been exchanged, we’ll get back to you with an offer on your vehicle. If you accept our offer, you’ll receive all the relevant sale agreement documents while we complete a series of vehicle verification checks. Once we have received the completed documents and created a stock number for your vehicle, our consultant will then arrange for the collection of your vehicle.

Once we can confirm that everything about your vehicle matches your initial information, we proceed to add your vehicle to our stock and finalise the process of payment to you. Finally, our proof of payment will be sent to you as soon as it’s received. The process may seem difficult or overwhelming but rest assured that our consultants are ready and willing to guide you every step of the way to make the sale as easy as possible for you!
