CLASSIC CAR AUCTIONS SELLER'S GUIDE – TIMED ONLINE AUCTIONS

If time is of the essence and you are unable to wait for one of our four live auctions, our timed online auctions will be taking place on a monthly basis. Reaching our ever-increasing audience of like-minded motoring enthusiasts couldn’t be easier and there are no fees when it comes to selling on our online marketplace.     

Everything you need to know about selling in our timed online auctions is right here, but should you have any questions please do get in touch.

SUBMITTING AN ENTRY

To submit your entry, you will need to sign in or create an account here. If you are creating a new account, you will need to provide one form of ID such as a driving licence or a passport to complete the process. You will need to specify if you are a trader by creating a business account and stating your trading name. 

As part of the submission, you will need to complete an accurate condition report of the vehicle, provide photos and appropriate documentation of the vehicle (service history, MOT certificates etc.). We will also require proof of ownership or the right to sell the vehicle. If your vehicle is currently financed, you will need to upload a copy of the latest settlement agreement.  

Once we receive the submission, one of our experts will be in touch to discuss the vehicle further, understand the history and its condition, which will then allow them to provide an honest and realistic valuation. As part of this, you will have the opportunity to set a reserve.  

We will write the vehicle description to accompany the condition report, photos and video as part of the website listing for interested buyers to view. 

We will handle all enquiries on your behalf.

COLLECTION

When we have collected the fee from the buyer, we will send you the buyers contact details, so you can contact them and complete the transaction. 

The vehicle will remain in your care throughout the duration of the process.  

Please ensure all history files, documentation and the V5C are with the vehicle when the buyer collects it. It is your responsibility to complete the V5C with the buyer upon collection.  

The buyer becomes responsible for the vehicle on the fall of the hammer; however, we recommend keeping it insured until the buyer has collected the vehicle.
