STEP 1

The Details

You can view our online UK Auction Cars under Search All Auction Vehicles. All are due for auction in the UK at British Car Auctions or Manheim Auctions in the coming days and weeks. The price advertised includes the UK 'Book' price - Guide Price in € of the car, the VRT amount due on the car on registration in Ireland, the transport cost and our fee.

Auction prices can vary depending on the Condition Grade, Mechanics and Specification of the car at auction. A Reserve is essential when bidding on higher specification vehicles and Grade 1, 2 or 3 condition vehicles. A minimum reserve of €500 is our recommendation when bidding on a car with Condition Grade 1, 2 or 3.

The upside of an auction is that prices can come in below book and should this happen, you will see the actual sale price when we send on the Auction House Invoice. You won't pay anymore than the sale price of the car as listed on the Auction House Invoice.

Check the Auction Date which is located beside the Guide price in the car lists. If the auction date is tomorrow we can help, if it's today then unfortunately it's too late! We can help you review the condition and/or mechanical reports. Just click on 'Request more Information' and the details of the car will come directly to us.

Get the full MOT history here on any UK registered car. A unique and independent service provided by the UK Government, showing the recorded mileage at each annual MOT inspection and providing details of the findings on each inspection. By comparison NCT information is not publically available for buyers of Irish registered cars. Combining MOT history with a Condition Report, Mechanical Report and Service history provides a level of transparency not available from any other company in the car industry.

We also have a team of Professional Inspectors ready to inspect before you buy. We recommend that our clients engage an inspector if they have any concerns or doubts. Our inspectors will produce a gallery of photo's of the car onsite on the day of the auction. This service is provided at a discounted rate of €49 from now until the end of 2017.

We offer a Trade-in Purchase Service for clients of our Auction Buyer Service. Trade prices are about 66% of retail.

Temporary finance is now available to purchase a UK registered car through our Auction Buyer Service by using our 'Bridging Finance' concept. You can find out more here.

Our Auction Buyer Service provides total transparency as we provide you with the Auction House Invoice.

While a deposit is required to process a bid, in the event of an unsuccessful bid the deposit is refunded within 3 days.

Before proceeding to pick a vehicle remember that you will need to have funds in place to pay the Auction House Invoice at or within 2 days of a successful bid

We have an extensive Frequently Asked Questions library to help you learn more about our offer.

STEP 2

Making a Decision

Now you know the details, the buying process is straight forward enough - Choose a car or cars, we will provide feedback as outlined in Step 1, make a deposit & set a budget, have funds in place to pay for the car, decide which service options you would like and then sit back and wait for delivery. Here are some thoughts while making your decision.

A vehicle history report from HPI can be provided following a deposit, this history check is provided at a cost price of €15. We recommend completing a history check with us or yourself, no matter where you buy, the more informed you are the better the decision you will make.

As BOOK prices are Guide Prices you should have a bit of flexibility in the budget to account for a slightly higher price at auction. This won't significantly affect the value on offer. If the car comes in below the book then you you will only pay this lower amount.

UK cars remain competitively priced, however, you should do your own research if you are not sure. For many, the higher specification and greater choice and quality on offer are often equally as important as the savings that are to be made. Our clients are more informed when making a decision with Condition, Mechanical, VRT and MOT information and make no mistake our prices are consistently the lowest on offer, for every one competitively priced car on Autotrader or Donedeal we have 10 at and below that price.

To bid with us we do require a deposit, in the event of an unsuccessful bid the deposit will be refunded unless you wish for us to hold on to bid on a second car.

Our business model continues to migrate towards a virtual market place allowing us to reduce costs and increase value. While most of our customers have never meet us before buying, we are more than happy to meet in advance to put a face to the business.

STEP 3

Making a bid

Once you have decided to go ahead bidding is the fun bit! Email us confirming the deposit has been made and the budget based on our recommended price guide, as time can be pressing you can forward a screen shot of the online deposit if the auction is the next day to allow us to process the bid. The deposit is €1,000 for a car upto €20,000, and €2,000 deposit above that, for some higher priced vehicles we may require a larger deposit. We will discuss this in advance if it's relevant.

The day before the auction we will confirm the time we expect the car to go through, we will also confirm the progress of our inspector, if you have booked one, and a time at which they will be in contact with you ahead of the auction. One of our team will complete the bidding online, where an inspection has been arranged then the inspector will complete the bidding in the auction hall.

We are generally quite accurate in our price guidance however, sometimes a bid can be won with an extra £100. Often we will go the extra £100 above budget and the reason is down to experience, everytime we have had to bid that bit more our client has been happy with the outcome as it doesn't affect the value on offer. If this is not something for you and the budget is quite strict to £100 then please advise us in advance.

There is no charge for an unsuccessful bid.


STEP 4

Successful Bids

Following a successful bid we will let you know ASAP. The Auction House Invoice email will be sent to us by close of business and we will forward that to you.

You then pay the sterling amount in Euro's (€) to the same account the deposit was submitted. Once paid to our company account we will complete the sterling payment to the Auction House for the amount on the Auction House invoice.

Clients can also process the payment to us in Sterling as we hold a company Sterling account.

Please make sure to have your funds available in advance of bidding as late payment, beyond 3 days, may incur storage charges of upto €30 per day from the Auction House.

Your car cannot be collected before payment clears. We cannot book transport before the payment is cleared.

Your deposit, will be returned, minus our fee and the cost of the other serivces you might have ordered.

We will only bid based on our price guidance. In the event of an unsuccessful bid you should forward your IBAN and BIC to allow for the return of your deposit.

STEP 6

Delivery

Transport to Dublin is only possible through us. Your investment is our responsibility until you take delivery at our premises in Baldoyle. Delivery times are upto 14 days and generally we are notified of a delivery 1-2 days in advance. We will provide documentation for the date of the entry of the car into the state in line with the requirements for VRT processing.

Once notified you should organise insurance using the UK number plate. Irish insurance companies will insure a UK registered car for upto 30 days to allow time for the VRT registration.

We would advise all clients to take advantage of our industry leading 12 month warranty, it's a small investment for a worse case scenario. We have the lowest claim rate across all traders with our policies however the warranty is really meant for the exception and provides excellent value for the cover they offer. If you have purchased a policy we will require a name and address in advance of collection to have the polcy in place and the documents ready.

If you require VRT and/or NCT processing we will require payment of the VRT and/or NCT fee in advance. VRT appointments are upto 14 days and NCT will be another 5-7 days after that. More often than not, we receive cancellation slots to accelerate processing. If you do wish to take the car in advance of the VRT or NCT appointment then we are happy to collect the car, from a location in the Dublin area, on the day of the VRT/NCT appointment. For your understanding the VRT and NCT appointments are separate events.
