what the.........?

was looking at this car at the auctions...put down my deposit as its a phone bid, registered and everything but when i went back to the auction list before, it and a few other cars have just vanished......whats with that? theyre not due for auction till tomorrow and no ones rang us to say that theyve gone. have they gone? or have they just been 'put away' ? the lot numbers for about 20 cars have been 7 figures all week and now theyre all gone and theres only 3 figured lot numbers there.
anyone?

Re: what the.........?

Sometimes they sell them before they go to auction - pre auction deal at a particular price. The auction houses here have them. I thought their cut off was the day before the auction... But generally they list the cars that they expect will go to auction, and withdraw them if sold.

Re: what the.........?

most of the auction people are dodgey bastards ive found

Iwill never forget the way mother_natures sprint was sold. There was at least 3 people still bidding (me being one of them!) and the auctioneer chose to ignore us and sell it to his dealer mate....

but as for the missing cars, its got me stumped!

thats Fu&%ed up. i contacted them on monday clearly stating i was interested. if they just went and sold it then i should have been given the choice of just buying it when i rang up about it.
can anyone buy a car before its sposed to be auctioned or is that just for 'special' people?

Re: what the.........?

U see a little bit of 'special' person activity at auctions. They cant do too much, or it causes trouble.

If u know the auctioneer, u know the reserve, and can offer them just over. Usually accepted.

Few cars i looked at sold prior without warning. Most are legit.
Its upto u to understand the rules . They definatley dont go out of thier way to inform u. Probably in fine print on something u signed

Re: what the.........?

One place here has a pre auction price on the vehicle, and if it isn't sold by auction time, it goes up for the bidding. That's through pickles, and if you search their website, you'd see they do it nationwide.
