Auction Policy

Buyer's Policy

Read the conditions of sale before bidding for a car. These are on display and available on request.

Warranties

All vehicles auctioned each Monday, Wednesday & Friday are presented and sold as No Guarantee - Sold As Seen, therefore all vehicles are non-refundable.

'Sold As Seen' generally applies to older, less expensive vehicles that have no mechanical warranty whatsoever. When you buy a car 'Sold As Seen', you buy it with all its faults, whatever and however serious they may be. An 'As Seen' car should be very carefully inspected before it goes under the hammer. (All main agent and company direct vehicles are 'Sold As Seen').

Mileage warranties are described by the auctioneer at the time of sale and are declared on the vehicles windscreen sticker.
