View the cars

Our vehicles list comprises of all the vehicles we'll be featuring at our next auction. Take a note of the ones that interest you for your next visit. Alternatively, when you're at the auction, you'll find an information card on the windscreen of every car that's ready for sale. This holds all the info you need, from MOT expiry date to a mileage reading. The only thing it doesn't show, however, is the reserve price. For this, you'll need to ask at our sales office.

Attend the auction

Our auction is open to everyone on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12 noon. You'll find the cars that interested you on the website in rows 1 - 28 of our auction hall.
