Live Bid

With Central Car Auctions, you can bid and buy online in real time thanks to our easy-to-use LiveBid system.  Our online bidding facility allows you to view the live auction, set an alarm to announce your lot sale and even listen to the auctioneer live.

As a trade customer, you can attend any of our online live weekly auctions using LiveBid from the comfort of your own home or office. Decide on the vehicles you want to buy, wait for the lot to become active, and then place your bids as you would at the physical auction.

Live Bid

If you’re short on time and can’t make the LiveBid auction in real time, simply visit our new ProxyLiveBid function when you log in, which allows you to access vehicle appraisals and photographs up to 24 hours before the auction and place a bid by proxy. The whole process couldn’t be easier!
