Online Car Auction Buying Guide
Buying a car at online car auction
If you are considering buying a car at online car auction then the following tips should be of some help.
If you already know what car you are after, always check to see the current value of the car in question. Companies like Glass' Guide or Parkers, or even Autotrader will give you an idea of the current value of the car.
Having checked the price, set yourself a maximum price you are willing to pay at online car auction, & stick to it.
Read the description of the vehicle thoroughly including the terms of sale, look at any & all pictures available, & if there is anything you are not sure about then ask the seller a question.
If possible, ask the seller if you can view the car in person, or even test drive it before starting bidding, as a bid at online car auction is the same as a regular auction in that it is legally binding.
Make sure the seller has the Log Book to the car they are selling.
You could also check the background of any car at online car auction by using a company such as HPI. It may cost a few pounds up front but could save you thousands if there was anything wrong with the car that wasn't declared in the auction.
If you use these tips as a guide to buying at online car auction, it should go a long way in making the process a fun & pleasurable one.
