Buying at an Essex Classic Car Auction

The number one rule whenever you buy at an auction is to thoroughly inspect the lot you are interested in before the bidding starts. There is no warranty or guarantee on anything that is sold, you are buying it “as is” and once you have bought it, there is no going back. You are contractually obliged to buy and all bids are final and cannot be revoked, rescinded or withdrawn.

There is time before bidding starts, where you can view all the lots for sale and make your own judgement. If the owner is present it will give you time to have a chat and ask any questions you have. Most owners are more than willing to give you as much information as possible but remember, the decision to buy is yours.

However, before you can make any bids, current legislation requires that you provide proof of identification (usually in the form of a passport or driver’s licence), plus a recent utility bill in your name as proof of address. Your credit or debit card details will also be required.
