How to sell at auction

Auction times

4 pm Wednesday

Regular weekly auctions for all vehicle types and all price brackets are held on site on Wednesdays at 4 pm. Special auctions are held as required and are advertised well in advance.


  • Why auction? The auction process is an efficient, competitive environment that brings buyers together to achieve a quick outcome for a seller.
  • What if I have never bought at auction before? Our consultants can assist you with the auction process prior to and during the auction. Please just ask at reception.
