Re: Car Auctions in Sydney

i have bought cars from both autogroup and pickles - sold them for more than i paid at auction (after owning them first for 12 months) so there both well worth a look

Re: Car Auctions in Sydney

Its good that your starting early.

generally, the best advice is usually the general auction stuff ( set a limit etc etc ) - plus if you can avoid it, don't get stuck on one car in particular, try and pick a few to bid on. Don't love it until you own it :)

Otherwise, about the best thing you can do is visit the auctions a few times before you are actually thinking of bidding. It lets you get a feel for the process, the cars available and what people will do.

On the day, get there early to check the cars out, or if you have checked at the viewing day, make sure your early enough to have another quick check of the car, and in time for its auction (duh). Remember to check the nrma report ( pickles does them for every car, not sure about the other auction houses ).

It can be worth picking up pickles "What people pay" ( something like that ), which lists the cars, condition, and selling price for all vehicles in the previous month at that auction house. Its a good way of getting an idea of what the cars are going for.

While the experience can be freaky ( well I thought it was ), you usually end up with a good car ( usually with warranty still as well ) for a very good price . . .

Re: Car Auctions in Sydney

There are plenty of car auctions that target classic cars or exotic car auctions. In fact, it is the largest subgroup within the car auction market. However, buying classic cars can be a little more risky, as these cars' increased age can lead to problems with maintenance and past damages.
