Attend auctions in bad weather – the worst weather – the better! People don’t like standing around bidding in the rain.
Attend week-day auctions – less people about than the weekends
Attend the auction with somebody who knows about cars, maintenance and car mechanics.
Arrive first. Get a rapport with the organizers and get the lowdown on what’s coming in. Get to personally know the agency’s representative if possible.
Know your target car book price and stick to a set budget. Auctions can be very enticing.
Check the preferred payment method beforehand. Some auctions will have an upper limit for cash for example.
Do not go bidder crazy. Remember this is real cash. Stick to your limit and don’t get carried away. There is always another auction.
