Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the bidding increments?

A: Bidding increments are a minimum of $100 until the last 12 hours when, you can then bid in increments of $50.


Q: Why have I lost a car by $1, I thought the minimum bid increments were $50?

A: The minimum bidding increments are $100/$50 from the current bid the vehicle is at not from your maximum bid which can be an odd number. Only you know your maximum bid.


Q: I’ve entered my maximum bid and it’s taken it to reserve met, I thought it went up in increments?

A: The proxy bidding system will bid intelligently on your behalf beating the previous bid by the minimum bidding increment. If your bid is equal to or more than the dealers reserve then the vehicle will go on sale and show as reserve met and then continue to go up in the minimum bid increments until the end of the auction.


Q: I have a question about a currently running auction, how can I ask the seller?

A: If you would like any information on any of the running auctions then contact a member of the Dealer Auction team who will be happy to ask the question on your behalf.


Q: I’ve missed the end of an auction, can I still make an offer?

A: If the vehicle has not met reserve and is showing provisional then you can give a member of the team a call with the registration number or auction ID and express an interest in the vehicle. If the vehicle has met reserve on the auction then the vehicle is sold and no longer available.


Q: What do I do if a car is grossly misdescribed?

A: If you can’t renegotiate or strike a deal with the selling dealer then you are within the terms and conditions to walk away from the vehicle at point of collection.


Q: I’ve had a car delivered and it’s not as described, where do I stand?

A: Your first point of call would be to speak to the selling dealer of the vehicle, make him aware of what has happened and see if you can come to a mutual agreement. Unfortunately you are not covered by our terms and conditions in this instance as it is only at the point of collection that you can reject the vehicle.


Q: I am unable to submit my auction?

A: If you are having trouble setting a listing live on the auction then you will first need to check that you have filled in all of the fields. Any fields that are marked in red as *Required will need to be filled in. If you are still having problems then feel free to give a member of the Dealer Auction team a call.


Q: I’ve set my listing live and now it won’t let me edit it?

A: You can edit a listing after it has been set live unless it has been listed for over an hour or a bid has been placed, whichever is first. After this point you will only be able to edit the pictures and media section of your advert. If you have anything that needs to be changed after this time then feel free to give a member of the Dealer Auction team a call.


Q: How do I upload a video to my listing?

A: To upload a video to your listing you will first need to upload your video to YouTube and then copy the Youtube video ID into the 'YouTube Video' box which is located underneath the images. You can view a step-by-step guide here.


Q: I’m trying to relist this car but it currently has a provisional bid on it?

A: If a car is in provisional then you will need to contact a member of the Dealer Auction team to relist this as we will be currently trying to negotiate a sale with the highest bidder.


Q: It’s been 5 days and I am unable to contact the buyer, what do I do?
